Zubora is a character featured within Majora's Mask. He is found in the confines of the Mountain Smithy, situated in the Mountain Village within the Snowhead region of Termina. Zubora serves as one half of the blacksmith duo, his assistant being Gabora. Gabora seems to be the forger while Zubora simply runs the shop and handles the customers. He seems to be quite lazy as he lets his assistant do most of the work. He also appears to be bossy.

Story

Within the events of the game, Link first meets Zubora while exploring the Snowhead region. Upon talking to Zubora, he says to Link that he cannot forge his sword due to the hearth being frozen over.[1][2] Link must obtain Hot Spring Water, which can be found within the Goron Graveyard. Once filled within a Bottle, Link must pour it over the ice, allowing the hearth to be used once again.[3] Alternatively, Link can also use Fire Arrows to melt the ice. With the hearth now functioning, Zubora's assistant, Gabora, is able to forge Link's sword into the Razor Sword.[4]

Link can further reforge his sword, but he is first told by Zubora that he must obtain Gold Dust.[5] Link must gain access to the Goron Racetrack. After entering the race and finishing first, Link is then gifted with Gold Dust by the Goron Elder's Son. Returning to the Mountain Smithy and showing the Gold Dust allows Link's sword to be further forged. Link's Razor Sword now becomes the Gilded Sword, which is durable unlike the previous forge.[6]
