The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom’s Majora’s Mask isn’t just a reference to a previous game in the series. It also provides a unique benefit to its wearer. Our guide helps you get the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Majora’s Mask, as well as give you various ways to complete the challenge therein.
Mind you, the Majora’s Mask isn’t the only unique item that you can discover. Throughout your journey, you might find other powerful items, such as the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Master Sword and the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Hylian Shield. These will help you across your journey.
How to get the Majora’s Mask in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
The Majora’s Mask in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom can be found in the Floating Coliseum in the Depths. The arena itself is close to the Great Abandoned Central Mine, which is a fairly important location.
Without spoiling anything, you’ll visit it as part of two main quests, as well as one lengthy side quest. Be forewarned, however, that the challenge that you need to complete should only be done once you’re well-prepared. We’ve marked the location on the map below:
How to reach the Floating Coliseum
Your first task is to reach the Floating Coliseum. If you’ve already discovered the Great Abandoned Central Mine then, chances are, you’ll have tagged nearby Lightroots already. It’s only a matter of going around the Floating Coliseum’s lakeside area and heading to the northwestern portion, which leads to its entrance.
If you haven’t discovered the area yet, then we suggest going to the Great Plateau further south of Hyrule Field. You’ll find a rockslide that can be destroyed, revealing a pathway to the plateau. There, you can skydive down any of the Chasms until you can tag the nearby Lightroots.
To get the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Majora’s Mask, you have to defeat five Lynel variants (one at a time, not simultaneously).
We’ve discussed these types of creatures already in our how to defeat a Lynel in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom guide. However, just to recap, we recommend remembering the following mechanics:
- Lynels have a regular lunging swipe. You’ll want to do a perfect dodge, and then follow up with a Flurry Rush.
- They also have a charge move, where they beeline for Link in a straight line. If you can avoid this, you can run up to them and press the A button. This will let you mount them and continue with your melee attacks.
- If you’re able to, try to land a clean headshot with your bow. This will stun them and allow you to strike with your melee weapon.
- Ideally, you’ll want to avoid their fireball attacks by running sideways. Don’t make the mistake of trying to land a headshot, only to get blasted to smithereens.
We also need to mention some important tidbits solely for this encounter:
- The Lynels in this place are corrupted with Gloom. That means getting hit will cause the Gloom debuff. It will lock out your max hearts, preventing them from being fully healed. As such, you’ll want to bring a lot of Sundelion meals to remove the debuff.
- You’ll fight Lynels one at a time in this order: Lynel -> Blue-maned Lynel -> White-maned Lynel -> Silver Lynel -> Armored Silver Lynel.
- At the start of each fight, the game will autosave. This means you don’t need to start all the way from the first enemy in case you die.
- The fifth and final Lynel will be heavily armored. Ideally, you’ll want to use two-handed weapons to destroy its armor. However, this might leave you vulnerable, so make sure you quickly swap to your shield in case it’s not stunned or if it’s about to attack.
- Another option is to attach an Ancient Blade (if you have one) to your arrow before shooting the last Lynel. The Ancient Blade is a special material that instantly disintegrates your target. This way, you won’t even need to worry about taking risks.
Majora’s Mask stats
After defeating all five Lynels, you’ll unlock the chest. Inside, you’ll find the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Majora’s Mask.
Sadly, it only has a pitiful +1 armor rating. However, its effects can prove beneficial. When worn, you have a chance of confusing enemies, preventing them from aggroing Link. This can lead to a stealthy approach when you’re exploring dungeons, caves, and the wilderness.
In any case, the Majora’s Mask is just one of many unique items that you can discover in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. For more information about the game and tips as you play, you can check out our Zelda Tears of the Kingdom walkthrough.
