The Fierce Deity Mask,(BotW | TotK)[1][2] also known as the Fierce Deity's Mask,(MM | HW)[3][note 1] is a powerful recurring Item in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

Majora's Mask

The Fierce Deity's Mask is one of five Masks that transforms Link when worn. It transforms Link into Fierce Deity Link, where Link has a unique, very tall adult form and voice, and allows him to manifest the Fierce Deity Sword. His attack power and range is greatly increased (roughly the same as the Great Fairy Sword), and his sword can release Sword Beams at the cost of Magic. When obtained, it is suggested to be as dangerous as Majora's Mask.[4][5]

Link can obtain the Fierce Deity's Mask by trading the twenty non-transformation Masks to the four Moon Children. Since the Deku Mask, Goron Mask, and the Zora Mask cannot be traded, Link must have in his possession all of the other Masks before being able to receive the Fierce Deity's Mask. Once this has been done, the young hero obtains the Mask from the child wearing Majora's Mask. He gives him the Mask so that the two of them can "play" together. It is said to possess the merits of all Masks.[6]

The Fierce Deity's Mask can only be used during Boss battles,[5] and, in Majora's Mask 3D, Fishing Holes. However, its combat capabilities are disabled inside Fishing Holes, and the Fishing Hole Men will forbid Link from leaving while wearing it.[7]

The Fierce Deity Mask is a piece of Armor in Breath of the Wild. It is obtained by scanning the Majora's Mask Link amiibo with the amiibo (Rune) Rune. According to its description, the Fierce Deity Mask is the same Mask as the one worn by Link in the Era of the Hero of Time, although it no longer retains its powers that it once had.[8] When worn, the Fierce Deity Mask provides one level of Attack Up. Like Majora's Mask, the eyes of the Fierce Deity Mask glow allowing them to be seen in dark areas such as the Thyphlo Ruins. The Fierce Deity Mask can be enhanced by a Great Fairy, though it cannot be Hateno Dyed at the Kochi Dye Shop. The Fierce Deity Mask, alongside the Fierce Deity Armor and Fierce Deity Boots, compose the Fierce Deity Set.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

The Fierce Deity's Mask appears as a type of Badge in the Bazaar in Hyrule Warriors. It increases the amount of Special Attack meters when crafted, up to three bars.

Introduced in Hyrule Warriors's Majora's Mask Pack, Fierce Deity Masks are tier 1 Mask Weapons usable by Young Link. They are associated with the Element of Darkness. Young Link can also use the Fierce Deity Mask to temporarily transform into Fierce Deity Link as part of his Focus Spirit attack with the Mask, as well briefly during his Special Attack. While in Focus Spirit, Young Link can manifest the Fierce Deity Sword, and his attack power, speed and range is heightened for the duration of the Focus Spirit. As Young Link is able to play the Ocarina of Time to empty his Special Attack meter and fill his Magic Gauge, it is possible for Young Link to stay in his Focus Spirit for lengthy periods of time.

Trivia

The adult Link Mask in an earlier version of Majora's Mask
  • Despite not being required to complete the game, Link obtaining the Fierce Deity's Mask is stated to be canon in Hyrule Historia.[9]
  • In the Japanese text of the game, the child wearing Majora's Mask specifically states that he wants to play tag with Link. This is a play on words as the Japanese text states that the Fierce Deity's Mask is a mask an oni (a type of Japanese ogre) wears, and the Japanese name for tag is "pretending to be an oni."
  • In the original N64 version of Majora's Mask, when the Fierce Deity's Mask is first obtained after trading all 20 non-transformation Masks, a glitch prevents the use of the other transformation Mask against Majora.[10] This was fixed in Majora's Mask 3D.[11]
  • Early in development, an adult Link Mask was meant to appear in the game, but was later replaced by the Fierce Deity's Mask.[citation needed] This may be due to the fact that Link can now use items that only Adult Link could in Ocarina of Time, rendering the mask useless. In Hyrule Historia, the Majora's Mask section contains concept art of Adult Link, confirming that Adult Link was meant to appear sometime during development.
  • Inside the game's code, a textured model of a Link Mask can be found. It is possible that it was used to turn Link back into his Hylian form when wearing other transformation Masks, as concept art in Hyrule Historia shows Deku Link wearing a similar Mask.
  • Through a glitch, it is possible to use this mask without being in boss rooms.
  • When asked, Aonuma suggested the Fierce Deity Mask contained the memories of all the residents of Termina.[12]
