What if Hyrule's banks upgraded to paper currency?

Why the denizens of Hyrule still exchange Rupees is beyond me. Have you seen the size of those things? A single shard occupies an entire treasure chest! How could anybody fit more than one in their pocket?

It's high time that the Hylian Reserve buys up all the Rupees in the land in order to issue a much more sensible form of legal tender. Just about every country on Earth uses paper currency, and if it's good for everyone else, it ought to be good enough for Hyrule.

Artist G33k1nd159153, more simply known as "Ash," decided to create a set of Hylian banknotes in denominations of one, five, twenty, and fifty rupees. Complete with a Triforce seal and the signatures of both the King of Hyrule and Shigeru Miyamoto, these bills are straight-up legit. In fact, I think Ash may be a counterfeiter. Guards! Seize that criminal scum!

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
