Majoras Mask-a game most of us have played. It made us laugh, it made us cry, but the first 30 minutes or so gave us phsycholocial damage. Skull Kid just had to go and turn us into a deku scrub for his own satisfaction. Our first main goal of that game was to get out of that form anyway. If you recall, we found our way out by "putting our spirit at rest" using the Song of Healing. But what if it wasnt our own spirit being put at rest? If you remember, the two other transformation masks (I should say main transformation masks, because I count Fierce Diety, but not as a main one) the Goron Mask and the Zora Mask, which were both created when the spirits of Darmani the Dead war hero and Mikau the injured musician were put tor rest. Those both were created by putting a spirit to rest, just as the Deku Mask was. But whose spirit was being put to rest. If you remember, after beating Odolwa at Woodfall Temple, you are rewarded by the Deku Princess. To get that reward, you must first beat the Deku Butler in a race (which doesnt seem right since it is a reward after all). After you beat him, he gives you the Mask of scents and apologizes for the trouble. He tells you that you remind him of his son, whom he used to race, but ran away from home one day. In the end credits. the Deku Butler is seen weeping in front of a wierd looking dead tree, the same one you saw in the first 10 minutes of the game coming to Clock Town after Skull Kid. Which means that Skull Kid had to have come that way to get to the Lost Woods in the first place. So Skull Kid could have encountered the Deku Butler's son on his way and decided to mess with him, but Skull Kid took it a little too far. Skull Kid took the poor little Deku's spirit, therefore creating the dead tree. Dekus are nothing more than little trees and bushes with souls and minds. Take that away, and theya re just little trees and bushes. So finally, when Skull KId encounters Link, he traps the spirit of the Deku inside of him, creating his new form. In links fantasy when this is happening, he sees a Deku approaching him, and then transforms. And when he plays the Song of Healing for the first time, he sees it going away and waves goodbye. He is not resting his own spirit, he is seeing off that of the Deku's. So, in conclusion, when wearing the Goron and Zora masks, you let Darmani and Mikau live on. When wearing the Deku mask, the poor sould who met Skull Kid that day gets a second chance.
