The Beaver Race is a mini-game in Majora's Mask. It is operated by the Beaver Brothers in Waterfall Rapids. The goal is to swim through a course with one of the Beaver Brothers while being timed and swimming through all the targets/rings. You need the Zora Mask to play it.
The first race is against the little Beaver Brother (The orange beaver). He recognizes you as Mikau, the Zora whose soul you trapped in the Zora Mask. He then tells you that you (A.K.A Mikau) lost the race before, but he will give you an Empty Bottle, as long as you beat him in another race.
In it there are 20 rings that you have to swim through in under two minutes.
After you complete the first race, Little Brother will call in Big Brother (the yellow beaver). He will challenge you to a second race, this time against him. This race has 25 rings that you have to swim through in under two minutes. After winning this race the Beaver Brothers will give you an empty bottle.
After winning the Empty Bottle, if you then go back to the Beaver Brothers they will tell you that they don't have another bottle, but if you still want to race that is fine. The third race is against the little Beaver Brother. It still has 20 rings but this time you have only one minute and fifty seconds to finish.
If you win the third race you will get to race against the big Beaver Brother again. There are 25 rings again, but you have to complete the race in under one minute and fifty seconds. If you win, the Brothers will give you a Piece of Heart, hoping that will make you leave them alone.
Tips for all races
- When you get to the target, stop boosting if you are, and take it slowly. This is the easiest way to mess up.
- Take it easy and relax if you get upset. This is by far the hardest mini-game if you get upset.
