Masks are recurring items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, Masks are part of the Mask Trading Sequence. In it, the Happy Mask Salesman of the Happy Mask Shop lends Link a Mask and has him look for a character to sell it to. Link is then tasked to return to the shop to bring back the Rupees used to purchase the mask, sometimes even having to pay out of his own Wallet when the costumer refuses to pay the appropriate amount. Link is continuously given another Mask to sell until the Happy Mask Salesman has no more left to sell. This allows Link to borrow any of the Masks, plus a few additional ones, to wear around Hyrule.

The Masks are only obtainable and usable while Link is a child. Most of the Masks possess no abilities when worn, however, some like the Skull Mask and the Bunny Hood do grant small abilities.
