In the Lost Woods in Ocarina of Time, there's a hidden area that has a
secret hole called the Forest Stage. Inside, you can get free Rupees or even
win fabulous prizes if you wear the correct mask!
If you don't have all the masks yet, click here to view our Masks guide.
To get to the Forest Stage, from the start of the lost woods, go right, left, right, left,
left. This takes you to the hidden meadow. Go to the other side of this area
into the tall grass and walk around where the butterflies are hanging out.
There's a hidden hole here that leads to the Forest Stage.
There's a hidden hole near the butterflies.
Right, left, right, left, left.
Pleasing The Crowd
You need to wear a mask and stand on the platform.
Once you get to the Forest Stage, put on a mask and stand on the end of the
platform to make the Deku appear and look you up and down. They certainly are a
picky lot and if they don't like what they see, they'll all hunt you down
and shoot you to death with Deku Nuts! If they do like it, they'll give you
Rupees, heck yeah! There are two masks however which will grant you a
different reaction, then their leader will gift you with an
"Hey Jeff, is that a booger in his nose, or is that just me?"

Mask of Truth
Which Ones Do They Like/Hate?
Let me be honest... I don't know.
When I originally made this page, I checked with several other sources who all
had the same list. I followed their guide, sure enough, my results turned out
the same. I even have it in video up a little ways on this page!
However, I have gotten many e-mails from people complaining about my list being
inaccurate, giving me their own lists.
I believe in earlier versions of Ocarina of Time, there is a set pattern, but
later versions (which also fixed the Deku Nut upgrade glitch,) are totally
random (LAME). It looks like most people agree, however, that the Skull Mask and Mask of Truth
give you the upgrades in the original set.
Other Reactions (Free Upgrades!)
They love this mask! They'll crowd around you and show you to their leader who upgrades your Deku Sticks, allowing you to carry 10 more than you could before!
USUALLY: Mask of Truth
They're terrified of this mask =O go talk to their leader and he'll upgrade your Deku Nuts, allowing you to carry 10 more than you could before!
Unfortunately, there's a glitch in some of the earlier versions of Ocarina of
Time in which you can't get this upgrade after you return from the future. Sorry
