|Debut||The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask|
Majora's Mask is a demonic mask that acts as the titular main villain of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The dark and mysterious mask grants evil powers to whomever wears it.
Little is known about the mask and its origins, and whether it originated in Hyrule or Termina. All that is known is that an ancient tribe one used it for hexing rituals. But the tribe eventually feared the catastrophes that the mask could bring about, so they sealed it in shadow forever to prevent its misuse.
The Happy Mask Salesman eventually found Majora's Mask and claimed it after a long and arduous journey. However, shortly afterwards the Happy Mask Salesman was jumped by the Skull Kid. The Skull Kid was drawn to Majora's Mask and began wearing it. Majora's Mask twisted Skull Kid's psyche, and he began using the mask's powers to wreak havoc throughout Termina. The Skull Kid's antics involved getting revenge on his enemies, such as imprisoning the Four Giants that rejected his friendship, or for random acts of cruelty, such as changing Kafei into a child or shattering the Great Fairies.
Eventually, Majora's Mask drove Skull Kid to bring about a great catastrophe by causing the Moon to start falling to Termina. The moon would land on Termina and completely destroy it at the end of three days' time. Link arrived soon afterwards and went on an adventure to stop the moon's falling. Link, too, had been affected by the Skull Kid and Majora's Mask, as they had turned Link into a Deku Scrub. But the Happy Mask Salesman was able to restore Link and give him advice on how to stop the Skull Kid.
Link's quest came to an end when he freed the Four Giants, and they held up the moon from falling. The Skull Kid seemed to see the error of his ways at that point, at which point Majora's Mask started speaking and moving. It tossed the Skull Kid away, calling him a worthless puppet. The mask then retreated into the moon. When Link arrived in the moon, he found a small meadow inhabited by five small green children (with a strange resemblance to the Happy Mask Salesman). The first four children wore the masks of the defeated bosses and playing around, while the fifth child wore Majora's Mask and sat alone in the shade of a tree, feeling unwanted.
The boy wearing Majora's Mask would ask Link to play if he talked to him. If Link had given away all his masks to the other boys, the Majora's Mask boy would grant him the Fierce Deity's Mask. By agreeing to play with the Majora's Mask boy, Link was teleported into a final boss fight with Majora's Mask.
Majora's Mask attacked in three phases. In its first stage, it was simply a floating mask and attacked by spinning around, and it also summoned the masks of the four defeated bosses to aid it. Afterwards, it grew arms and legs as well as a small one-eyed head (with the mask becoming its chest) to become Majora's Incarnation. This form mostly danced and ran around in a bizarre manner. Its third and final form was Majora's Wrath. In this form, Majora became larger and more humanoid with a demonic head (with the one eyeball on its forehead) and a long, whip-like extensions from its arms.
After being defeated, Majora's Wrath disintegrated. This process apparently eliminated all the evil from Majora's Mask, leaving it as a normal mask that was soon recollected by the Happy Mask Salesman.
- Majora's Mask is also featured in the Majora's Mask manga, with a role nearly identical to its role in the game. Additionally, author Akira Himekawa wrote an original side story prior to the game's release which depicts his own version of the mask's origin. It is shown that a maneating creature lived ten million years ago, with wish-granting armor. A visiting human tricks the monster by exploiting its loneliness and plays music on bongo drums to make the creature dance for three days until it dies on the fourth day. The human than carves the armor into Majora's Mask and seals the monster's power within it, hoping that it slumbers forever.
- Majora's Mask also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The trophy is won by completing the "Trophy Tussle 3" event match, which is battled atop a giant version of the Majora's Mask trophy.
