"Ye who awaken me, battle me. Then shall I extinguish the furious flame"

— The tombstone besides Captain Keeta

Captain Keeta, also known as Skull Keeta, is a character that appears in Majora's Mask.[1] Located within the Ikana Graveyard, this large Stalchild is at first seen sleeping soundly and needs to be awoken by Link through the use of the Sonata of Awakening.[2][3] Once the young hero plays this song and wakes up the sleeping skeleton, Captain Keeta will break the archway he was previously resting below and begin to walk the other way, and this in turn initiates the battle between him and Link.


Considering Captain Keeta starts things off by walking away, in a way this battle is also a race, for if Link can't keep up he'll likely have to wake up the large Stalchild another time and try again. Link quickly equips the Bunny Hood to ensure he can keep up with the large Stalchild, and after taking out some lesser Salchildren and deactivating the fiery force fields that got in his way, soon gets close enough and begins to hack away at the skeletal captain's legs. In response Captain Keeta turns around and begins to swipe at the young hero and even tries to drop on him from above at times, but after using his bow to stun the large Stalchild followed by some slashes with his Gilded Sword.

Captain Keeta may be really difficult or he can be extremely easy depending on the circumstances of your encounter with him. The easiest method in slowing him down, which is the biggest issue with the battle is simply striking him with several ice arrows. The ice arrows will slow him down considerably allowing you to catch up quickly. He attempts to strike you with his hand, and this attack cannot easily be blocked only avoided. His other method of attack involves him leaping into the air and attempting to fall down on top of you. You can use your sword when his defenses are down or continue striking him with arrows or even bombs; regardless, Link soon gets Captain Keeta to admit defeat.[4][5][6][7][8][9] After this the captain explains things to the young hero and before being put to rest rewards him with the Captain's Hat.
