Oinkers (ブーブリアン Būburian?) are enemies from Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. They are pig-like creatures that appear on all three continents. As the story progresses, the encountered Oinkers' strength increases. When defeated, they often drop items that characters in the game had lost. These items can in turn, be sold back to these characters for varying amounts of Rupees.

All the Oinkers encountered are led by the Oinker Boss who resides in Auros Ruins. Tingle must later defeat the Oinker Boss to obtain the Master Rupee.


Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.

The description of the Piggy Bank Rupee Good reveals that Oinkers believe that Rupees are cursed. This possibly implies that Oinkers are not actually evil, but instead are enemies of Uncle Rupee. If this is true, this could be the reason for their hostility towards Tingle.
