15 Signs You MAY Be Obsessed With Majora’s Mask

Feb 26, 2015

In honor of the 15th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and the release of the 3D remake for Nintendo 3DS, here’s a fun piece (adapted from a list of 10 I wrote after the original game was released) with 15 signs of obsession with Majora’s Mask 3D.


1. When at work (or school) you consider playing the Elegy of Emptiness so you can go home early.


I’m still at my desk. Really.

2. Any time you are faced with a difficult situation, you think to yourself (if only briefly), “If something goes wrong, I’ll just play the Song of Time and try again.”

If only it were this simple.

3. You join an interpretive dance class and use Kamaro’s dance moves to try and impress the ladies.

Hello LLLLLLLadies.

4. In preparation for the “inevitable” Zombie Apocalypse, you make a Gibdo mask in hopes that it will make the zombies dance instead of eating you.

If real zombies were to do ballet when I wore a Gibdo mask, I’d make one, too.

5. You check the public bathrooms in hotels at 12am with a random piece of paper in hopes that a hand will pop out of the toilet and exchange said paper for a heart piece.

If I were stuck in a toilet, I don’t think the first think I’d ask for is paper.

6. Every time you do something nice for someone, you expect a mask or heart piece as compensation.

Sure, Grandma, I’ll listen to your stories. But I expect some compensation.

7. Your vocabulary now consists solely of grunts and yells.

8. You plant beans in the ground and expect them to sprout immediately after watering them.

Ain’t nobody got time to wait.

9. You attempt to hide in plain sight by wearing a Stone Mask made of paper-mâché.

Thanks for the free ride! Sucker.

10. Every time you look up at the moon, you expect to see a menacing face staring back at you.


11. You make your own bunny hood and wear it every time you need to get somewhere fast on foot.



12. Every time you see a child, you wonder if he’s really an adult that was changed into a child by the Skull Kid.


13. On more than one occasion, you’ve tried to play the Inverted Song of Time to give yourself more time in a day.

“Now I can play Majora’s Mask 3D TWICE as long!”

14. You follow people around in real life and write out their daily routines in a notebook.

“I promise I’m not a stalker!”

15. You spend so much time playing Majora’s Mask 3D that Link tells you to give him a rest.

“I’ll cut you.”
