The Legend of Zelda: Majora\’s Mask has by far one of the darkest stories in a Zelda game, and could be one of the more darker tales Nintendo has woven period. Of course masks are a huge aspect of the game, but you could always tell there was some pain in switching between the various masks in the game, and wearing them, that Link would experience. But why? Aonuma spoke on this in a recent interview:
We\’re talking about masks that were created to contain the memories of people who have died. Often there are things they really wanted to do before they left this world, so becoming them is actually really painful because it\’s like hosting a really powerful spirit that\’s coming into you.
