Zelda: Who The Fierce Deity Link Mask Was Before Majora's Mask
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has many unanswered questions, including the true identity of the Fierce Deity before it became a mask.
Throughout the duration of the Zelda timeline, there have been a lot of mysteries that fans have been attempting to unravel for years now. From Breath of the Wild's timeline placement to the details of the Hero of Time's death, players can spend countless hours putting the pieces of these puzzles together. One of the strangest games in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, has little to do with the overall timeline, yet it's overflowing with secrets and strange unanswered plot elements. Among them is the origin of the Fierce Deity, since very little is actually said about them in the game.
Unsurprisingly, Majora's Mask involves collecting various masks. Link can find them by assisting the people of Termina with their problems and each one will grant him unique abilities. Most of them offer simple powers like increased speed or invisibility, but there are a few capable of transforming Link entirely. These masks are integral to the story and offer Link some of his most substantial tools in the game.

Out of all four of the transformation masks, only the Deku, Goron, and Zora masks are necessary to complete the game, but the Fierce Deity Mask is one of the most powerful items Link can acquire in any Zelda title. It transforms Link into a towering figure clad in armor and facepaint, wielding a massive double helix blade capable of shooting beams of energy. Players have found it strange that the final boss himself will gift the mask to the player if they've collected every other mask and given them away to the children on the moon, especially since its power turns the final Majora's Mask fight into one of the easiest bosses in the entire franchise.
Zelda's Fierce Deity Mask Origin Theories Explained
While the Fierce Deity's origins aren't explicitly explained in the game, the developers of Majora's Mask seem to want to keep it a mystery. In an interview with Eji Aonuma conducted by Game Informer and reposted on Zelda Dungeon, Aonuma said, “The best I can give you is just a suggestion. The best way to think about it is that the memories of all the people of Termina are inside of the Fierce Deity Mask.” This could be taken in many ways, but perhaps this is in reference to all the people that Link assisted throughout his adventure. The problems he fixed were created by Majora, and the masks he received were given in gratitude for Link's good deeds. Majora says that Link is a "bad guy," so perhaps he's saying that because of how Link fixed all the issues he created and the Fierce Deity Mask literally embodies the memories of all of Termina, which is why it gives Link so much power.
Another obvious theory is that the Mask holds the spirit of Link's Termina counterpart. Termina is filled with characters who have an identical counterpart in Hyrule with varying personalities and histories. Link's counterpart is never seen, and the mask itself bears quite a strong resemblance to the hero. The other transformation masks hold the spirits of individuals who have died, so perhaps the mask holds the spirit of Termina's dead Link. Either way, the Fierce Deity Mask is one of the strangest occurrences in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and it is unlikely fans will get a definitive answer soon.

Fierce Deity Set
"This armor is rumoured to have been worn by the hero of a world in which the moon threatened to fall. The tales say that when he wore it, he felt fierce, godlike power flowing through him."
— Creating a Champion, page 193
The Fierce Deity Set is an Armor set from Breath of the Wild, designed after Fierce Deity Link from Majora's Mask.
Breath of the Wild
The Fierce Deity Set is obtained through the use of the Amiibo rune and scanning the Link (Majora's Mask) Amiibo. This Amiibo can only be scanned once per day (real day, not in-game day). When scanned, this Amiibo drops various items, with a small chance of dropping a chest containing one piece of the Fierce Deity Set. The Drop Rates are highly disputed, but the best estimate for how often a piece of armor drops is about a 10% chance each piece of armor. Due to the nature of how it is obtained, it can be obtained either early, mid, or late game, or never. This depends on when one receives the chest after scanning the amiibo.
This set is very similar to the Barbarian Set, however, it is an amiibo exclusive item and is much easier to obtain through save scrubbing than having to complete all three labyrinths for the Barbarian set.
Each armor part requires parts from one of the three dragons in the game:
Enhancing Armor requires that you have unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level.
Fierce Deity Link
Fierce Deity Link
Fierce Deity Link is a playable character in Majora's Mask and Hyrule Warriors.
"You got the Fierce Deity's Mask! Could this mask's dark powers be as bad as Majora? Try it on with (C)."
— Majora's Mask
After obtaining all twenty four masks in the game and trading them to the Moon ChildrenInside the Moon, the last child rewards Link with the Fierce Deity's Mask, an all-powerful item that can only be used in boss rooms. Consequently, Fierce Deity Link, the deity that Link becomes when dawning this mask, has the ability to defeat any Boss in the game quite easily using the power of the Fierce Deity Sword and Sword Beams, but can only exist in boss rooms.
There are five bosses in Majora's Mask that Fierce Deity Link can combat. After completing the game once through, Link may revisit any bosses from the past and feel free to defeat them using the Fierce Deity's Mask. Below are the bosses from the game that can be battled, and detailed descriptions of how they may be defeated.
Masked Jungle Warrior: Odolwa
- Main article: Odolwa
Odolwa may just be the easiest to defeat as Fierce Deity Link. If Link locks on to Odolwa and begins slashing, Sword Beams will target Odolwa automatically and bring it down in a matter of seconds. Attacks against the boss directly will do damage quickly, but it is best to simply strike it down from afar using Sword Beams and then hone in for the kill. Since this warrior has no good way of defending itself from Sword Beams, it is pretty much a matter of seconds before Odolwa falls to the ground. The lock-on is truly a blessing here, but it really makes the fight much less exciting than it was originally.
Masked Mechanical Monster: Goht
- Main article: Goht
Goht is a much different beast than the rest of the boss fights. Because Link originally fights Goht in a racetrack arena and must keep up with the mechanical monster's pace as a Goron, Fierce Deity Link has no hope of moving alongside Goht. Instead, it is wise to wait for the boss to make a full round around the racetrack and time the Sword Beams perfectly to strike. Remember to stay in the same spot while doing this. It is rather difficult and takes a long time if the player is not coordinated. It is fairly unlikely that Fierce Deity Link will be hurt, since Goht just keeps on rolling in circles. Defeating Goht as the Fierce Deity is heavily reliant on patience, and patience will certainly be rewarded in this case. It probably provides a healthier challenge than fighting Goht normally.
Gargantuan Masked Fish: Gyorg
- Main article: Gyorg (Boss)
Gyorg, like Goht, moves around a lot. But its territory is the water, not a racetrack. Likewise, Fierce Deity Link will find some challenge in defeating Gyorg, even as the formidabe Fierce Deity. Gyorg will occasionally flip out of the water and try to knock Link into the water, and in these instances, just climb back on to the platform. Instead of using a combination of Arrows and the Zora magic barrier to harm the fish, Fierce Deity Link has the luxury of simply firing Sword Beams at the expense of magic. Several beams won't seem to hurt Gyorg as they don't travel quickly enough to hit it while it is moving. It is best to strike from the platform while Gyorg is still.
Giant Masked Insect: Twinmold
- Main article: Twinmold
Twinmold, the fourth boss battle of Majora's Mask, is probably the most painstaking of the bosses to defeat using the Fierce Deity's Mask. Since the Giant's Mask was the intended instrument of Twinmold's destruction, remaining relatively the same size won't exactly make the battle easy. Because Link is not huge, Twinmold will pose a much greater threat as it is perhaps the largest Zelda boss in history. The tails and heads of the worms are still their weaknesses, though the limited range of the Sword Beams and the incredible speed of the Twinmold worms will make it frustrating to actually get up close and strike the tails and heads. Sword Beams won't be very effective here. It is easier to just allow the worms to tunnel into the sand. The tails will only be in Link's target range for a split second, so it is important for the player to take the initiative and strike swiftly. After battling Twinmold as Fierce Deity Link, players likely won't want to do it again.
- Main article: Majora's Mask
Not surprisingly, Majora's Mask, Majora's Incarnation and Majora's Wrath aren't too difficult to take down. Since the mask was specifically designed for optional use during this battle, it would make sense that each phase of Majora is highly susceptible to the abilities of Fierce Deity Link. Locking on to Majora in all of its phases and spamming the Sword Beam is enough to defeat the final boss in a short amount of time. Even the quick-moving Majora's Incarnation is no match for the Fierce Deity.

Young Link uses his primary weapon, the Mask, to become Fierce Deity Link while in Focus Spirit mode.
Fierce Deity Link is one of the transformations Link turns into in Majora's Mask, achieved by wearing the Fierce Deity's Mask. This transforms him into a mysterious and powerful warrior resembling a Hylian. It is one of four Mask transformations in the game.
Link obtains the Fierce Deity's Mask after he trades the twenty non-transforming Masks to the four Moon Children inside the Moon Dungeons. The final Moon Child sitting by the Tree will give Link the Fierce Deity's Mask after noticing all his other Masks are gone. Wearing this Mask enables Link to transform into the Fierce Deity only during boss battles.
In Majora's Mask 3D, Link can also transform into the Fierce Deity inside the two Fishing Ponds. If he attempts to leave when in Fierce Deity form, the Fishing Hole Man will keep the young hero from doing so, wondering how he got in there in the first place.
In the Fierce Deity form, Link gains greater strength and range in his attacks as well as certain new abilities. Because the Fierce Deity wields the Fierce Deity Sword, a large, two-handed, helix-edged Sword, he cannot use a Shield, although this disadvantage is compensated for by the Sword's superior power. Link can also use the Sword to release Sword Beams while Targeting an enemy.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Majora's Mask (Himekawa)
In the Majora's Mask manga by Akira Himekawa, Link receives the Fierce Deity's Mask from Majora and becomes Fierce Deity Link during his fight against it. In a flashback of Majora, it is revealed that while as a dragon, a mysterious man bearing a strong resemblance to the Fierce Deity in both appearance and clothing, had visited Majora. The man played music for the dragon, who danced for three days and three nights before dying. The man then carved the Majora's Mask from the creature's hide, hoping to seal its power. It is hinted in the story that the stranger is in fact a god, the first being that is able to overcome the beast of Majora, and that it does so with music that controls the flow of time.
In Hyrule Warriors, Fierce Deity Link appears as part of Young Link's Mask weapon type moveset. During Focus Spirit, Link can temporarily transform into the Fierce Deity to perform powerful attacks before reverting to his normal self. It also includes all other bonuses characteristic to Focus Spirit. This form of Focus Spirit is unusual in that it lasts longer than any other Warrior's. While in Fierce Deity form, Young Link is able to shoot Sword Beams with most of his swings, but generally shares all of his original form's moves. He can also use the Ocarina of Time to convert his Special Attack Gauge into more Magic to refill his Magic Meter, thus extending his time in this form. Young Link's Focus Attack features him slicing the Moon in half, damaging enemies around him.
An alternate costume for Link based on Fierce Deity Link appears in the Majora's Mask DLC Pack.

|Slightly increases sword-attack power of fighters like Link and Marth.|
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fierce Deity Link appears as a Spirit with the ability, Sword Attack Up, which raises the attack power of a Fighter when they are wielding a sword. One of Link's alternate costumes is based on Fierce Deity Link.
- In Tri Force Heroes, the Fierce Deity Armor appears as an Outfit. It doubles the damage of the Sword, allows Link to shoot four Sword Beams, and reduces knockback from enemies.
- The Fierce Deity form is popularly referred to as "Oni Link" within The Legend of Zelda series community. This is based on an incomplete translation of his Japanese name that incorporates the kanji for "fierce" (Ki), which can be read alone as 鬼 (Oni).
- The Fierce Deity is the representation of the feelings of all people populating the land of Termina. This representation is reinforced by the fact that it was necessary to exchange all the masks obtained thanks to the different interactions, actions and help provided to the characters of the game in order to obtain the Fierce Deity's Mask.
The term "fierce deity," 鬼神, is used to refer to several deities in the Shingon Buddhist pantheon, such as Bishamonten or the Myō-ō, who are fierce and wrathful toward the negative forces that work against humanity's enlightenment, but are benevolent and supportive of humanity. They are seen as deities that work to defeat evil, a quality which the Fierce Deity's Mask gives Link greater ability to achieve.
