Majora’s Mask 3D Walkthrough

Welcome to the Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask Walkthrough. The walkthrough below is a complete 100% Majora’s Mask walkthrough that will cover a full run through of the entire game, including strategies for all bosses and enemies, along with the collection of all Pieces of Heart, masks, Bombers’ Notebook entries, and upgrades that take you through all of the many side quests within the game. This guide also serves as a Majora’s Mask 3D Walkthrough for the Nintendo 3DS remake of the game.

You can also check out the video version at our Majora’s Mask Video Walkthrough page. The video walkthrough will follow the text version of the Majora’s Mask Walkthrough’s order of collection. Much like the text walkthrough, the video walkthrough will cover every item, collectible, and sidequest, while also providing excellent commentary.

    I am a huge Zelda fan/player/collector, and your Zelda Dungeon walkthroughs are incredible!!

    I was wondering if you planned on updating the Majora’s Mask walkthrough to incorporate the new features/changes/differences that the 3D version will offer?

    For example, the new 3D version will allow Link to travel forward in time to specific hours, instead of just a fixed point of the next day. Will this be addressed in the Majora’s Mask walkthrough?

    As another example, the new 3D version will add fishing. Will your Majora’s Mask walkthrough be updated to include this?

    Thanks so much!!

    • Mases Hagopian

      I will be completely re-working this walkthrough for the 3DS version of the game. Expect massive changes in the next week or so and I hope to have most of it available by the time the game releases.

      • Tomes2789

        You’re a legend. :)

      • PirateKing

        Could you keep a separate version of the N64 Walkthrough and the 3DS version? It’d be super helpful to still have the N64 version

        • Mases Hagopian

          There are actually a LOT of differences. Little things like the locations of characters/items, as well as many of the stray fairies, and a few shortcuts. What I’m doing is having one walkthrough and then making clear distinctions when there is something that is different between the 3DS or the N64 version.

  • Nicholas Hill

    very nice i going get futher

  • Lukas Turner

    Thank you! I could never beat this game and I’m a great fan of Zelda! May cats name is Zelda! And with this walkthrough I beat it! Thank You Very Much!

    • Evan

      Wait. You beat it on the first day?

    • Tate McConnell

      Wait, you beat the cat? Or did you beat the game?

    • Zigzag

      so you’re a great fan of beating your cat?

  • Ayoub Akhtar

    I got the game on Friday morning and I’ve already completed it by Saturday 5.37am, even though they changed a lot of things I found it relatively simple

    • Anthony

      Using the walkthrough obviously as you are on this page…..

      • Ayoub Akhtar

        No am on this page because am a member. I dont use walkthrough as I believe they ruin the game…

  • josh

    I have all but one heart piece I thought it was the swamp archery with koume but it was can any one help me

    • Mases Hagopian

      Perhaps it is in the Graveyard underneath the Gravestones? In the N64 version you got a different reward each day. (Song of Storms, Heart Piece, and an Empty Bottle). In the 3DS version you get the same things the first two days, but on the third day you get a Heart Piece.

  • matt

    Why am I getting fishing passes on these mini games rather than heart pieces… I’m beating all daily times.

    • Mases Hagopian

      For the honey and darling, and the deku playground, the first 2 days are fishing passes. On day 3 of each, if you’ve done day 1 and 2 in same cycle, then you will get heart piece.

    • Don

      I’ve been getting only fishing passes for the Postman’s game. It’s really pissing me off.

  • Eduardo Rocha

    So i this completely updated with the 3D changes?

    • Dusk-Argentum

      Most of it is updated, yeah. I’ve been using it throughout my entire 3D playthrough. There’s always bolded words separating any major differences between the 3D and 64 versions.
      If you find any parts that aren’t quite updated yet, check back the next day. From what I understand, the whole guide is being reworked as we speak.

    • Mases Hagopian

      Just finished it completely the first time through. New pictures and changes are made for the entire guide. We will be going through it again and polishing it up quite a bit.

      • Tomes2789

        Awesome!! I have been waiting to begin Majora’s Mask 3D until you finished (just re-beat OoT 100% again lol), so am I safe to begin now if I want to follow along with your guide? Thanks!!

  • tftgttrf

    How about telling us how to get pieces of heart too?

    • Dusk-Argentum

      If you mouse over the “Majora’s Mask” button at the top of the screen, under “Guides” there will be a Heart Pieces option. Click it. Done.

  • Dusk-Argentum

    Thanks a ton for this guide! I’ve been using it since I started playing the 3D version, and it’s pretty good. Keep up the good work!

  • Alberto Jorge

    Does Majora’s Mask 3D have a hero mode or master quest or something like that?

    • Mases Hagopian

      Unfortunately no. Just a regular playthrough, much like the Nitnendo 64 version.

      • Alberto Jorge

        I found out a few days ago. I was… not mad, but disappointed. I wanted the extra challenge, and having the mirror MQ in Ocarina 3D, I’d expect Nintendo to do the same for Majora 3D. Oh, well. It’s still a large game, with high replay value, whereas in OoT, you beat it and that’s it.

        • chill

          It’s actually really cool with how the OoT Master Quest and Majora’s Mask both came about originally. From what I recall, after the success of the original Ocarina of Time, one of the producers went to the team and said something along the lines of ‘Cool, here everyone, take the resources from Ocarina. Good? Now you have a year to make a new game with this as a base’. They then split into a few groups to work on their own ideas. One group came up with Master Quest and another with Majora’s Mask. That’s also why Majora’s Mask is so unique compared to other Zelda games. They went in with no pressure and the mindset of let’s go in and do something cool and weird with what we have and just have fin with it. It really was a unique point in gaming where something like this would even happen.

  • Firelink13

    Thank you for a great walkthrough! I love how you put the changes in for each version. This took alot of work and it shows, great job.

  • Linda Snyder

    Thank you so much!! Very helpful!!

  • 321er

    I followed you guide 100% and I am still missing one heart piece. I know there is 4 on the moon. But I have 18 hearts and 3 heart pieces. Did I miss one in your guide or is there 5 on the moon?

    • Skorrpio

      the bottle with dampe in the graveyard on the 3rd night is now a heart piece

      • 321er

        I know, I already got that one. I have gotten every heart piece except for the moon ones. Yet I still only have18 hearts and 3 heart pieces. I have literally check every heart piece location and haven’t gotten anything new. I am starting to think that there might be 5 on the moon in the 3ds version. If not then I have no idea where the one im missing is.

        • Skorrpio

          Well ive done everything except stone tower temple and i have all the heart peices so i imagine you just missed one somewhere. maybe the frog chior? ive forgotten that one alot.

          • 321er

            Actually I just found it, I was looking through the notebook and I added them up. I forgot to do the swamp shooting range a 2nd time. The first time it gives you a quiver the second time a heart piece. Thanks for you help though.

          • Skorrpio

            No prob. Glad you found it!

    • Madi

      What about the treasurs chest game as a goron? Have you also done the title deed trading quest for the heart pieces? What about the hand in the toilet that needs paper? Shooting minigames? Deku playground? Postman timing game? Sword training game?

  • 321er

    I am playing on the 3ds version. I forgot to mention that.

  • Anthony Murano

    I think my game is glitched. I am talking to Anju directly after the postman leaves, but she keeps asking me “Are you wanting to stay the night”, and she keeps saying that there are no vacancies and that a Goron has the last reservation. This is really pissing me off because I can’t get the key to the Stock Pot Inn room and completing the entry in the Notebook. WTF?!

    • Jay

      talk to her when you get the goron mask and you can get it in the book. it actually makes sense since a goron named link already has a reservation but you take it by mistake, its not a glitch it just made more sense

      • Anthony Murano

        I tried doing that, but she keeps saying the same thing… I’ll try it again and see if it works this time. I thought maybe using the Song of Double Time was the issue, but that had nothing to do with it.

        • Altamarie

          You have to do it between 3pm and 4pm on the first day

        • Alberto Jorge

          You need to talk to her first as a Goron as soon as the postman leaves. If you forget, and talk to her as Link, you screwed up. She won’t even give you the key if you transform into a Goron afterwards. You may as well start all over. Same thing happened to me :

          • Anthony Murano

            Yeah, I got it. They really should have specified that in the walkthrough. I know it’s common sense, but I’m playing based on knowledge from the original version, so I’m not accustomed to all of the new changes yet. :/

  • Alberto Jorge

    When I try to summon Keaton at the Mountain Village, he doesn’t appear. I use a spin attack and collect all the rupees (obviously while wearing the Keaton Mask. But he doesn’t appear. I can summon him in Clock Town and in Milk Road, but why doesn’t he appear at Mountain Village?

    • Julian Turner

      Are the bushes attempting to run away when you cut them? There are many in the same arrangement which do not and you can’t sunmon the Keaton

  • Sheppy ya Kiliji

    Finding the faires is annoying.. but really might be worth it at the end..

    • Alberto Jorge

      Oh, it is. You get some sweet items and upgrades.

    • Jarlmann

      Arguably you can skip the Snowhead Temple fairies.. I dont recall a single time in any 3D zelda game I’ve actively used the spin attack :p

  • blah

    were is the 2 key in the stone temple I’m using the ads version

  • blah

    3ds version i ment

  • Beth

    I can’t get the witch at the tourist center to ask if I want to play the mini game. A little help?

    • Mases Hagopian

      Link can only play the Southern Swamp Target mini-game after Odolwa has been defeated.

  • CM30

    Probably an odd question, but is there a reason the guide suggests to go and do sidequests in Ikana Valley before Great Bay, despite not actually being able to enter much of Ikana Valley without glitches before then (since you need the hookshot and ice arrows to progress)?

    Maybe it was possible in the Nintendo 64 game, but it seems misleading to suggest doing this stuff early when it’s impossible without glitches in the 3DS version.

    • AndrewJ

      This is because in the N64 version, Ikana Graveyard (which is off to the left, not up the cliff), houses an empty bottle, and the Pirate’s Fortress dungeon will require more than one trip if you do not have 4 empty bottles. This one is rather easy to get :)

      • Mases Hagopian

        Thanks Andrew. This is precisely right. We don’t use glitches and we don’t actually enter Ikana Canyon. We do go through the entrance area of the region, Ikana Valley, to reach the Ikana Graveyard.

        In the Nintendo 64 version, that 4th bottle is very valuable when going through the Pirates’ Fortress. In the 3DS version, you get an extra bottle in the Southern Swamp region and you just get heart pieces while in the Ikana region. Thus, it’s not as useful to go to Ikana before Great Bay in the 3DS version. Still, you can to get some extra hearts. For consistency between the N64 and 3DS versions, we decided to put it right here.

    • Brandon Beickel

      No actually you can you just need a horse and the hookshot and the ninja mask which you get from the brothers

  • Mechima

    What is the dogs’ “Ruff! There’s no way i can lose!” line in French ? Since sometimes the translators can do some weird translations…It’s for M’sM 3D.

    • Julian Turner

      It’s should be whichever is the most confident statement.

    • Dane Matesic

      Ruff! Il ne ya aucun moyen que je peux perdre!

  • Ninja’d

    Thank you very much for the walkthrough, it was much easier working my way through this game.

  • Brandon Beickel

    Hell yeah this walkthrough rocks
    Who ever made this sweeeet
    #I like the pics it makes thing easier lol
    Ps. You should add videos

  • Julian Turner

    Heart piece number 18 is missing some requirement. I have the Sonata of Awakening and I can play it and all my other songs in these grottos and none of the stones change color. I do not have the Mask of Truth. I have completed the Woodfall temple.

    • Dane Matesic

      When I used “Sonata”, wearing the Deku Mask worked for me.

      • Julian Turner

        Thank you, but now you can see exactly what is wrong with that step in the guide.

        The guide said nothing about wearing the Deku mask. In fact, it didn’t even say what song to play! It said that the Sonata of Awakening was required but then went on to describe that you must play one of the “listed” songs each time with the “goal” of making them the same color. I don’t see how to make them any other color unless different days mean different colors or something, which means you goal would actually be to change them all within the same day.

        One could only assume with that information that I would need the Mask of Truth or something to read what was “listed” and that I would find a different one of four songs in each grotto with at least one requiring the Sonata of Awakening and the other three being songs I would have obtained by then. Playing each and every song as Link did nothing.

        • Flywallz

          The thing that you have to remember is that every song that you learn for the four temples can be used, but you have to where the mask of the song in general. I would not suggest the elugy of emptiness, more the sonata, or the other 2 WHILE wearing the mask for that particular song. and only if you were not think enough to belive that the song was the only thing you had to have.
