Brendan Milos Majora’s Mask Artwork – Bad Bat

Bad-BatBrendan Milos has continued his journey of creating artwork for many of the enemies of Majora’s Mask. This is part of a fan project to create artwork for all of the Majora’s Mask Enemies that appear in the game.

This time around he tackles an enemy Bad Bat. As if Keese weren’t annoying enough, Majora’s Mask felt it was necessary to have two separate types of bat-like enemies. Unlike Keese, Bad Bats are commonly found outdoors, flying around in Termina Field and preventing you from reaching a heart piece on the Road to Southern Swamp. Fortunately, these pesky enemies are fairly easy to defeat. You can see a thumbnail version of the image to the left, but go ahead and make the jump to see the full sized image, along with where you can find some of Brendan’s other pieces of enemy artwork.

Our Updated Heart Piece Guide for Majora’s Mask 3D is Now Complete

Heart-Piece-12In my view, Majora’s Mask is one of the tougher titles in the Legend of Zelda series. Some of the later bosses can be quite difficult and this is amplified by the fact that there are only four temples. Thus, if you are doing a straight forward run without getting any of the heart pieces, you’ll have a measly 7 heart containers by the time you are ready to face off with the final boss. Thus, getting at least some of the Majora’s Mask Heart Pieces is essential for beginners and novices alike.

We’ve got you covered. While we’ve had a guide available since launch, we have now fully revamped our heart piece guide, now with the inclusion of screenshots for all 52 heart pieces in the 3DS version of the game. This doubles down as a Nintendo 64 guide as well, as there is a single heart piece that is drastically different between the versions, as well as slight differences in a few others. Alternatively, you can follow along step by step with our Majora’s Mask 3D Walkthrough, as all the heart pieces are also included within.
