Cuphead Wiki
Porkrind's Emporium on Inkwell Isles I, II, & III
Porkrind's Emporium on Inkwell Isle IV

Porkrind's Emporium is the shop in Cuphead, as well as the place where the players encounter the store's merchant, Porkrind. The players can use the gold coins they find in Run n' Gun levels or in the overworld to buy upgrades, such as different types of weapons or charms.

Some items must be bought for another, different one to immediately drop in its place. This means that buying many items first (including ones the player may not want) must be done in order for the desired item to eventually drop and be for sale.


There are two types of item available in the shop: weapons and charms. Each item of the two types is sold at different price with Weapons at 4 coins and Charms at 3 or 5 coins.

Porkrind's Emporium was also originally a wagon, seen here in the pre-release version of the DLC.

  • During the pre-release gameplay of the DLC, Porkrind's Emporium was a wagon, just like the other Inkwell Isles. In the final version, this was changed to be a booth instead.
