In Ocarina of Time, there's a Mask Shop where you can borrow masks, sell
them, then return with the money to borrow more masks. If you finish this
entire trading sequence, you can get some upgrades as well as a cool item
that lets you speak with Gossip Stones (see below).
During and after this
quest, be sure to do the
Forest Stage side quest.
The Happy Mask shop is a building with two giant eyes on top of it found in
the Hyrule Town Market between the entrance to Hyrule Castle and the Temple
It's only open after you give Zelda's Letter to the guard at the base of
Death Mountain in Kakariko Village.
- The first mask you're eligible to borrow is the Keaton Mask (10 Rupees),
which is a pretty easy one.
- The guard at the base of Death Mountain in Kakariko Village spoke of it at
length and how he wanted it for his child. Slap it on and talk to him, he'll
give you 15 Rupees for the darn thing.
The second mask is the Skull Mask (20 Rupees), which would be impossible to
find based on just what people say...
Go to the Lost Woods in Kokiri Forest. Once there, go left once to find an
imp playing the flute. He's kind of an outcast amongst the rest of the imps
because he doesn't think highly of himself and his "toughness." Jump onto
the stump and show off the Skull Mask. He'll buy it for a measly 10 Rupees.
The third mask looks just like a ReDead (which you'll see soon enough, 30
Rupees). It's also a fairly easy one to do.
Head to the Kakariko Graveyard during the day to find a small kid stomping
around with a stick. His life dream is to be like Dampe, the grave keeper
and be scary. Somebody needs a hobby... Anyway, flash him the Spooky Mask
and he'll cough up all 30 Rupees without blinking. Sheesh!
- This last mask isn't as obvious... The Bunny Hood (50 Rupees) is
simple, but will require you to run around.
- In Hyrule Field, there's a guy known as the Running Man who is
constantly jogging. He will only appear after Link has gathered all three
spiritual stones. He starts out in the northeast corner and works his way
around the field counter-clockwise, sticking close to the road surrounding
Lon Lon Ranch. The easiest way to find him is to enter Hyrule Field from the
Market and follow the road leading right. By the time you walk past Lon Lon
Ranch, you'll see him.
- Wait until he stops to take a breather (play the Sun's Song) and talk
with him while wearing the Bunny Hood. He's heard stories of it giving the
one who wears it mythical speed and agility. Fork it over and he'll pay you
over 500 Rupees! It's a real shame, because that's more than your wallet
will allow... If you wait for him to get up, you'll see him zip away crazy
fast! Now why couldn't it do that for us? If you want to see that, you'll
have to play the sequel to this game. =)
The Mask of Truth
Mask of Truth
After you've brought back the final mask, you'll get four new masks to try
out. Three of them are just for fun, but the one of interest is the Mask of
Truth, which allows you to read the minds of animals and people you talk to.
It also lets you hear the thoughts of Gossip Stones, the giggling, exploding
stones across Hyrule that tell you the time.
