Gaming Den

Hey, Hey, Hey, Everybody
Welcome to the Gaming Den

Today I would like to finish off with the final transformation that is available in the game, The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask and that is the Fierce Deity Link. If you would like to learn about the other transformation masks you can find them here (Deku Scrub, Goron Link, Zora Link)

The only way to get this mask is to collect all 20 of the non-transformation masks. Then upon entering the final location you are able to play 4 mini-games and afterwards trade away the 20 masks to obtain the Fierce Deity Mask from the kid that has Majora's Mask.

The abilities of this mask are so great, you are restricted to using them during just the Boss Fights in the game. The weapon he wields is a double helix 2-handed sword, meaning that Link is not able to use a shield. But to compensate the sword shoots laser beams, much like in the older Zelda games.

There are many theories surrounding this mask especially since there is not much information as it is just given to you at the end of the game but one that I will share is that this mask may have been used as a transformation to Adult Link form. This is supported by the fact that each area of the game has some transformation but not the Ikana Canyon and this mask may have been used to get to higher ground or be more powerful. This also may be the case because the build and size of Fierce Deity Link is very similar to Adult Link. The other theories I will leave for you guys to find out.
