|Rupee Larso (right) and Barta (left)|
|Faction:||Larso Clan, Black Pirates (former)|
Rupee Larso of the Larso clan and his bulking bodyguard Barta (Bātsu in the Japanese version) are a bounty fight in Skies of Arcadia Legends. Although Vyse and crew believed it was Barta they would need to capture (because of his size), it was indeed the child Rupee. After the death of his father Rupee had to take the helm as leader of the Larso clan.
After his defeat at the hands of Vyse and company he decides (at the advice of Vyse and Aika) to make carpets for a living instead, saying that his mother told him his carpets always sold quickly and were in high demand. It seems he did not want to be a pirate at all. Although it seemed he may not have wanted to at first, Barta has decided to join him and together they seek a new, less painful life. It is currently unknown wether or not the rest of the Larso clan has joined him or have continued to be pirates.
Rupee and Barta can be fought by the party any time after they're completed the Temple of Pyrynn. Both are red element enemies.
Rupee's attack options include the magic spells Increm, Pyrum, Sacres, Sacrulen, Drilnos, Panika (although he will only use Sacres and Sacrulen on Barta). If Barta is active in battle, Rupee can also use the Super Move Berserk Rupee, where he launches Barta head first into a single target for massive damage, often a one hit ko, especially if he casted Increm on himself. However, he will only use it after taking a certain amount of damage, so avoid attacking him if you want to prevent him from using this Super Move. It is recommended that you focus your attacks on Barta and maintain a constant usage of Delta Shield until they both go down.
Barta's attack options include a physical attack and the Super Moves Legendary Punch (which is often, but not always, used after Legendary Charge) and Legendary Fire (which has a chance of inflicting fatigue). If Rupee is active in battle, he will sometimes use a Sacri crystal on him (but like Rupee, he will never use them on himself). Until Barta goes down he will continue to heal Rupee with said crystals; thus it is highly recommended that you tackle Barta first before dealing with Rupee.
When defeated Rupee and Barta drop a Captain's Hat and a Paranta Seed, respectively. Reporting their defeat to the Sailor's Guild will net you 8,000 Gold.
