Once they are all destroyed, go out of the door then go back in. Destroy them again and repeat this process. Also, when you are a child and are in the same room, there are two boxes at the far end of it. The one to the far right as a Golden Skullula in it.

Extra Rupees method 19: When Link is as a child, go to Zelda's castle. Go to the moat of water in front of the castle. Get your slingshot, and aim at two green diamond-like objects on each side of the drawbridge. When you shoot them you will get some rupees -- but you can only shoot them once.

Go to the Lost Woods, and take a left in the first area. Get to the room with the single Skullkid. Target him, and walk up to him until he jumps off and decides to fight.

Extra Rupees method 26: As an adult, go to the Lost Woods with the Biggoron Sword. When entering from Kokiri Forest to the Lost Woods, go through the left opening, where the lone Skull Kid is playing his flute. Fight and kill him with the Biggoron Sword. After defeating the lone Skull Kid, a huge Rupee will remain where the Skull Kid was standing. The Rupee will be worth 500 Rupees. This is an easy way to gain some fast money.
Extra Rupees method 27: As you enter the Lost Woods, make a right into the tunnel. Then make a left, another left, and you will be in the place with a lot of bushes. Go to the back where a grotto is hidden. Enter there as a child. When you enter, stand on the platform about five steps in front of you. Wear the Mask Of Truth and play the Song Of Storms. The flowers will start to dance or they will get mad. If they get mad, try again until they dance. You will eventually get a lot of rupees. Repeat this as many times as needed.

Extra Rupees method 30: As an adult in Kakariko village, walk 5 to 20 paces slowly facing the well before the house. The Rumble Pak will activate if you have the Stone Of Agony. Take out the Megaton Hammer and swing it towards the spider house. A hole will appear. Go down kill the two zombies to get a chest with 200 rupees.
Extra Rupees method 31: To gain an unlimited amount of rupees do the following. As a child, talk to the giant Goron inside of the third floor in Goron City. As an adult, go to the top of Death Mountain and play the Song Of Storms. Run to the Death Mountain crater and play the Song Of Storms again. You will hear a sound. Run back outside to find a giant gold Skulltula drop in front of the giant Goron. He will stand up. Jump around kill the Skulltula (requires eight hits), then talk to the giant Goron. He will thank you and tell you to visit him anytime. He will give you 100 rupees each time. Note: This trick must be done in under 45 seconds.
Extra Rupees method 32: Near the end of the game (when you have all medallions, etc.), get the Biggoron Sword and go to the Kokiri Village. Enter the Lost Woods and take out the Biggoron Sword. Follow the first left, and you should be in the area with the tree stump. Near the stump will be a giant Skull Kid. It is pretty fast, but one hit from the Biggoron Sword should kill it. When dead, it will leave behind 200 rupees.
Extra Rupees method 33: When you go to see Zelda, walk to the window to your left. Shoot the window with your slingshot and a man will tell you not to cause trouble. You will see an explosion. Walk over to the window to the right. Shoot the top left corner of the window and a red rupee will appear.
Extra Rupees method 34: One bottle is required to perform this cheat. After you become adult Link and the town's people move from the castle to the village, go to the area behind the potion shop. There will be a hole in the ground in that area. Fall into the hole and you will be in a small cavern. If you look at the ground, there will be puddles. In the puddle to the left will be a fish swimming. You cannot hurt the fish with your sword or any weapon. Instead, take out a bottle and press the C-button again to select and use it. Link will swing the bottle downward and catch the fish. Go back out and find the homeless lady. Press the C-button that contains the fish. Link will pull it out and the lady will buy it for 100 rupees. Repeat the process until your wallet is filled. Note: It does not cost you anything to get the fish.
Extra Rupees method 35: When you have just gotten the Iron Boots, put them on outside of the ice cave, where Jabu Jabu used to be. Go to the bottom to find some rupees and a Heart container in the middle.
Extra Rupees method 36: After winning the Piece of Heart from the single Skull Kid, return to his grove at any time and kill him to get a giant rupee worth 200 rupees. This can be done multiple times, as he returns every time you leave and always gives a giant rupee.
