I got this from the hoarder near the entrance to death mountain by the dudes sawing the tree. Grab 5 green rupees from him before he disappears and he will drop a red rupee.

^^ also, referring to the one under the bush, not the one from lifting the big rock.

I tried both the one near the Desert and the one inside the Lost Woods, neither seem to work.
Andrevus 22 May 2023 05:32
Okay so the trick is that you need to get the five rupees in quick succession, if at any point more than 2 or so seconds pass the "combo bonus" that leads to the red rupee being dropped resets.

This doesn't work in the Lost Woods

I got it to drop the rupee but i didnt get the pop. death mountain entrance.

The hoarders hiding in big rocks apparently don't work. Try those hiding in small rocks/bushes.
Kyluya 23 May 2023 01:45
The Bush hoarders in the woods dont work. ive gotten a red rupee from both and neither made it pop.
Olra 23 May 2023 01:47
The achievement is actually unlocked when the red rupee appears on screen, you don't even need to pick it up. At least that's what happened to me.
Olra 23 May 2023 01:56
Try the small rock hoarder near the "mute" guy. That one worked for me.

it should be fixed now. It was really hard to represent the issue.
JAM 24 May 2023 14:58
By the way, correcting a few statements above. You have 3.2 seconds before hoarder will disappear since he's dropping the first rupee. You need to collect 6 rupees in that time and have a little time remnant (a few frames) to make him drop the 7th rupee. If you do everything right, 7th rupee will be red.

Woo! thanks for the update!

Can confirm this achievement does not work in the lost Woods.

But works fine near the mute guy.
