Gold Skulltulas are very similar to Skullwalltulas, only they have a golden appearance and leave behind Gold Skulltula Tokens when they are defeated. Like Skullwalltulas, these usually need to be killed with a projectile. The token always floats right where the Gold Skulltula was hanging, so you will either need to jump to it, or use the Boomerang or Hookshot. They are found all over the land of Hyrule, even in villages and Dungeons. They enjoy hiding in dark places, and so some of the outside ones will only appear at night. To use your tokens, go to the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village. Every time you collect a certain amount, one of the cursed Skulltulas inside will transform back into a human and give you a gift as thanks. They are the only kind of enemy in the game that Link can't Z-target.
Here is a list showing the gifts and required token amounts:
- 10 - Adult Wallet
- 20 - Stone of Agony
- 30 - Giant Wallet
- 40 - Bombchus
- 50 - Piece of Heart
- 100 - 200 Rupees (can be received every time you visit)
