The world of Majora's Mask is studded with strange and mysterious masks to unlock without which it is virtually impossible to continue or get great benefits in the game. We at games.co.uk have created this guide to help you get all 24 precious masks from the main adventure that will change the fate of Termina!
IMPORTANT: Masks are not affected by the effects of time, so once unlocked they will remain in your inventory forever!
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: Automatically after talking to the Mask seller under the clock tower at the beginning of the game.
USE: Allows Link to transform into a Deku Bush.
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: You will first have to retrieve the LENS OF TRUTH tool, at the Goron village: go down to the lower part of the village and look for the big owl. Follow him in the cave using the feathers, drop the bird, to understand where to jump and get the lens. Cross the invisible platforms again and return to the lower part of the village. Use the lens now to see the spirit of Darmani in the area where the owl used to be. Follow the spirit until you reach his sanctuary above the waterfall. Finally, use the MELODIA DEL RISTORO to calm its torments and obtain the Mask.
Utility: Allows Link to turn into a Goron.
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: When you arrive at the Big Bay, look into the water to see a wounded Zora floating unarmed. It's Mikau, stand behind him and push him, like a boulder, to shore. After the film, use the MELODIA DEL RISTORO to relieve his pain and obtain the Mask.

4 - POSTMAN'S HAT

USE: Thanks to the Postman's Hat you can check the mailboxes of Cronopoli to find various useful items. The first time you check a mailbox you will get a HEART FREAM.
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: During the night of the first day make sure you are in the north area of Cronopoli (the one where there is the Bomber chief intent on hitting the balloon) at about midnight. You will see the appearance of an old lady carrying a sack: she is the owner of the bomb shop who comes back carrying the new items for the shop, including the big bomb rack. Unfortunately she will be attacked by Sakon the thief who you must promptly stop by simply hitting him. On the night of the third day, you will be able to buy the Vigil Mask from the junk collector in West Chronopolis.
UTILITY: Thanks to the Vigil Mask you can listen to the stories of Anju's grandmother, inside the inn in Cronopoli (ground floor, room behind the stairs) without falling asleep and get two pieces of heart.
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: You will receive it after saving the old lady from the Sakon theft ( See MASHERA DELLA VEGLIA ).
USE: Useful mask against the most hostile enemies and especially when you are left without bombs. Wearing it and pressing B you can make yourself "explode" at the price of a heart if before blowing yourself up you use the shield to defend yourself, you will explode anyway without losing any heart.
7-MASK OF THE RADIANT FAIRY
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: Once human again, at the beginning of the game, go back to talking to the Great Fairy in the North of Chronopolis after finding the lost fairy in the city: near the washhouse by day or in East Chronopolis by night.
USE: This mask serves to make it easier for you to search for lost fairies in dungeons. Each dungeon contains several fairies to bring back to the area's Great Fairy, wearing the mask in the various areas of the dungeons, the fluttering fairies, even if far away, will immediately reach Link.
WARNING: It doesn't work if the fairies are trapped in a bubble.
8-MASK KAMARO ( THE UGLIEST MASK IN THE GAME!!!)
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: During the night, go to the Termina valleys taking the north exit from Cronopoli. If you look at the big mushrooms on the left, as soon as you leave the city, you will notice a bizarre individual intent on performing an even more bizarre dance. Talk to this individual to discover that it is the spirit of the legendary Kamaro who unfortunately cannot find peace. Use the MELODY OF THE RESTAURANT to give him the peace he desires and obtain the mask.
UTILITY: Wearing this mask you can perform in the unusual and bizarre dance of Kamaro, a deadly weapon against the bosses who will die laughing to see links dancing in this way... in reality this mask only serves to inspire the Pink dancer sisters, who rehearse at night in front of the West Cronopoli Lottery. Dance in front of them to get a HEART BREATH.
P.S. Of course against the bosses has no effect so avoid staging ridiculous dances while they try to crush you with an axe!!!
HOW TO UNLOCK IT: See the secondary mission "ANJU and KAFEI" in the full game guide.
UTILITY: Thanks to this mask it is possible to evoke the spirit of a Keaton (strange magic foxes) in those particular places where there are circles of moving bushes: you will find one in the North area of Cronopoli, near the tree on the right and another one near the Milky Way teleportation. There are, however, several throughout the game and sooner or later you will surely find one. To make the Keaton appear, cut through the bushes wearing the mask. You'll see the bushes run away and disappear leaving the post to a big talking fox who will ask you 5 questions about the game and the characters' habits. Answering all the questions correctly the first time you will get a HEART FREAM, while the following times you will get different amounts of Rupees.

You will find Grog in the place next to the Cinecourse. The man will look tired and depressed because, due to his age, he can't run his chicks. Use the Bremen mask and, like the Pied Piper, march to music and let all the chicks follow you. After forming a long queue made up of all the chicks, the chicks will become chickens and Grog will give you the mask.
