Ballad of the Wind Fish is a song in Majora's Mask. While it is named after "Ballad of the Wind Fish" from Link's Awakening, they are otherwise entirely different songs.

Majora's Mask

Ballad of the Wind Fish is a famous song of the Indigo-Go's dating back to the generation before the present Lulu[1], when her mother - also named Lulu - was the lead singer[2]. Gorman claims that hearing it at a Carnival of Time was what made him take up showbusiness[3]. It remains popular in the present day.[4]

When the Indigo-Go's Milk Bar performance at the Carnival of Time was cancelled due to Lulu's lost voice, their manager Toto wanted to do a sound check to see how it would have sounded, and asks Link in his various forms to fill in the various parts.[5] Gorman heckles as Link plays each part, until the song comes together and he breaks down with the memories generated. Thanking Link, he gives him the Circus or Troupe Leader's Mask.[6]



  1. "It's their old standby... "Ballad of the Wind Fish." That's the song that members of the previous generation of The Indigo-Go's made famous!" — Toto, Majora's Mask.
  2. "The one you heard singing must have been the original Lulu, mother of the current lead singer who's also named Lulu." — Toto, Majora's Mask.
  3. "I entered show business because I heard this song at the Carnival of Time long ago... By doing performances, I thought maybe I'd get to meet the singers of that song..." — Gorman, Majora's Mask.
  4. "The Indigo-Go's is the popular group that we Zora are so proud of. They've put out a lot of songs. One of their hits is "Ballad of the Wind Fish." You know that song, don't you? Huh? You don't? Really? Even one that famous? Hmmm... You'd be able to hear it if the show wasn't canceled. It's such a shame.", Majora's Mask.
  5. "We were scheduled to do a show, but it got canceled. This place has a reputation for being a great live venue, so it's a shame. I'd like to do a sound check, though. I just want to see what it would have been like... Hey, you! Could you help me with a performance? Yes No" — Toto, Majora's Mask.
  6. "That melody...It brings back so many memories! I'm sorry I booed you... Please, take my mask." — Gorman, Majora's Mask.
