Eiji Aonuma Explains What’s Inside the Fierce Deity Mask

By   /   Mar 5, 2015

With the recent re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS, director Eiji Aonuma has been pretty open about a lot of Zelda fan theories and other mysteries that have been keeping fans awake.

Speaking with Game Informer recently, Aonuma was asked why Link is in pain when putting on the transformation masks. The director replied that the masks are essentially vessels to store memories of people who have died. Not all memories are good and there are often things that the departed wanted to do before leaving this world.

“Becoming them is actually really painful because it’s like hosting a really powerful spirit that’s coming into you.”

With the idea of a powerful angry spirit invading Link’s mind, Aonuma was asked next about the spirit within the Fierce Deity Mask, and whose soul it is exactly.

“The best I can give you is just a suggestion,” he began. “The best way to think about it is that the memories of all the people of Termina are inside of the Fierce Deity Mask.”

Do you find Aonuma’s explanations to be satisfying or were you hoping that the mask held a greater evil entity, and not just the combination of people’s memories?
