Fierce Deity Link: Fierce Deity (鬼神 Kishin?) is the presumed name of a character from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. He is the spirit that is assumed to inhabit the Fierce Deity’s Mask. There are very few facts truly known about the Fierce Deity.
When Link dons the Goron Mask, Zora Mask, or Deku Mask, he transforms into a form similar to Darmani, Mikau, or what is presumed to be the Deku Butler’s Son, respectively. Due to this, it is believed that the spirit inhabiting the Fierce Deity’s Mask is that of a great god. When Link uses any particular transformation mask, he takes the shape of what the spirit inhabiting the mask looked like during its lifetime, with a few characteristics altered to look more like Link. Using this knowledge, it can be surmised that the Fierce Deity was a tall warrior god, who wielded a sword which was capable of shooting Sword Beams. Like with the other transformation masks, his exact appearance may be different from the one seen when Link assumes his shape.
It is possible, given that the other transformation masks are named for the race they represent and not the person, that “Fierce Deity” is the name of a race as opposed to an individual, but unlike the other transformation masks, the mask is called the Fierce Deity’s Mask (using the possessive of Deity), which may indicate that the mask once belonged to a character known as the Fierce Deity. This may actually be because this Mask is parallel to Majora’s Mask, which is possessed by a spirit hence its name.
Though apparently a divine entity, the Fierce Deity’s Mask possesses a dark power implied to be greater than Majora’s, though the true alignment of the Fierce Deity is never revealed as Link is not corrupted by the mask as he retains his normal heroic personality while transformed. However, its dark nature doesn’t necessarily mean the Fierce Deity is evil as its dark nature could be due to its apparent ferocity. Like Link, the Fierce Deity is implied to be a legendary warrior, though it is unclear if the Fierce Deity originated from Termina, Hyrule, or a higher plane of existence located outside these physical realms.

In the Fierce Deity form, Link gains greater strength and range in his attacks as well as certain new abilities. Because the Fierce Deity wields a large, double-handed, helix-edged Sword, he cannot use a Shield, although this disadvantage is compensated for by the Sword’s superior power. The link can also use the Sword to release Sword Beams when targeting an enemy.
Very little is understood about the demigod known as the Fierce Deity. With his history shrouded in mystery, the dark and mighty warrior was trapped into a mask, a mask that allows the wearer to inhabit the Fierce Deity’s powerful body.

When young Link dons the Fierce Deity Mask, he manages to harness its power without being corrupted and is transformed into Fierce Deity Link for the ultimate showdown with Majora…

Link obtains the Fierce Deity’s Mask after he trades the twenty non-transforming masks to the four Moon Children Inside the Moon. The final child sitting by the tree will give Link the Fierce Deity’s Mask after noticing all his other masks are gone. Wearing this mask enables Link to transform into the Fierce Deity only during boss battles.
In Majora’s Mask 3D, Link can also transform into the Fierce Deity inside the two Fishing Holes. If he attempts to leave when in Fierce Deity form, the Fishing Hole Man will keep the young hero from doing so, wondering how he got in there in the first place.
In the Majora’s Mask manga by Akira Himekawa, Link receives the Fierce Deity’s Mask from Majora and becomes Fierce Deity Link during his fight against it. In a flashback of Majora, it is revealed that while as a dragon, a mysterious man bearing a strong resemblance to the Fierce Deity in both appearance and clothing, had visited Majora. The man played music for the dragon, who danced for three days and three nights before dying. The man then carved the Majora’s Mask from the creature’s hide, hoping to seal its power. It is hinted in the story that the stranger is, in fact, a god, the first being that is able to overcome the beast of Majora, and that it does so with music that controls the flow of time.
Link Fierce Deity
A Fierce Deity equipment set can be obtained in Breath of the Wild using the amiibo Rune with the Link Majora’s Mask amiibo. These include his iconic clothing and sword. The lore provided by the set’s descriptions claims this set was the armor of a hero from another world who obtained godlike powers. This is either a reference to young Link who actually was not from Termina or the ancient hero the mask and gear represents. Each armor piece grants the Attack Up bonus and once upgraded to Level 2 or higher it grants the Charge Atk.
Stamina Up set bonus which reduces the amount of stamina consumption for Charged Attacks. Additionally the eyes of the mask also emit a white glow causing them to glow brightly in the dark and at night though the glow is always present just more notable in the dark and at night. The Fierce Deity’s iconic Greatsword also appears as its own separate item for the first time in the series and receives its official name Fierce Deity Sword. Unlike the Fierce Deity Armor Set, the sword will only start spawning randomly when the amiibo is used until after Link frees at least one of the Divine Beasts (they can be completed in any order).
When it breaks, Link can use it again to acquire another Fierce Deity Sword. The Fierce Deity Sword is a two-handed greatsword though it lacks the ability to fire Sword Beams presumably due to Link’s lack of magic power in Breath of the Wild. The Armor set pieces can be acquired as soon as Link acquires any Rune on the Great Plateau and activates the Amiibo Rune function though they spawn randomly and only one piece can be obtained per day (however Link can reload a previous save to use the amiibo again until the armor drops as the game only prevents amiibo from being used if the game has saved the data of its use and the same trick applies to the sword once it is unlocked to randomly drop by freeing any Divine Beast).
The armor set can be upgraded by Great Fairies though it cannot be dyed due to the fabric it is made from. The Mask requires Dinraal’s Dragon Parts for each upgrade, the Armor requires Naydra’s parts, and the Boots require Farosh’s parts. Hinox monster parts are required for the first two upgrades while Lynel monster parts are required for the third and final upgrades. Thus it requires Link to defeat powerful enemies and complete the Shrine Quests related to each dragon spirit, which fittingly involves the Goddess Hylia and the divine Dragon Spirits which are all deities much like the Fierce Deity indicating the sacred power of the Dragons contained in their parts is used to upgrade the set pieces.

Though the history of Fierce Deity is never elaborated upon in the game, it is implied, through what is said by the likes of Tatl, and the fact that Majora himself gives Link the god’s mask, that the Fierce Deity Mask was created by a Deity far stronger than Majora, and that Majora could possibly have given the mask to Link in an effort to destroy them both. Fierce Deity’s evil maybe even darker than that which resides in Majora’s Mask, as Majora calls him “the true bad guy”, though this may just be a lie or exaggeration on the part of Majora, and that Majora considers itself a hero.
Fierce Deity Link Hyrule Warriors
Though there is little evidence to support this theory, it has been suggested by some that when Majora realizes Link is a threat, it seals its spirit into the Fierce Deity’s Mask instead of Majora’s Mask in order to survive. If Link chooses to wear the mask, he succumbs to a great power, defeating Majora easily. If he chooses not to, he must face a far more difficult battle but has not given into the possible trickery of Majora. This theory presents the Fierce Deity’s Mask as a moral choice to the player; whether or not to use the possibly evil powers of “the true bad guy” to defeat a final boss. Moral choices are rarely present in the Legend of Zelda series, but it would make sense that one of this magnitude would be present in Majora’s Mask, a game known for its intricate plot.
This would explain why such a powerful weapon is simply gifted to Link, and would maybe reveal a darker, unseen ending to Majora’s Mask. By wearing the Fierce Deity’s Mask, Link sells his soul much in the same way that the Skull Kid had done with Majora’s Mask. Therefore, when Link returns the emptied Majora’s Mask to the Happy Mask Salesman, Majora has tricked both the Happy Mask Salesman and the player, and could survive on in the Fierce Deity’s Mask. It could also explain why the final boss battle appears to feature incarnations of Majora and may never show the entity’s true form.
This theory is refuted by questions such as how Majora would continue to act through Majora’s Mask while inhabiting the Fierce Deity’s Mask if it would even be possible for the entity to leave Majora’s Mask, and why Majora would give Link such awesome power rather than wield it itself.
It is explained that Majora’s Mask is carved from the armor of a powerful dragon, Majora. Majora guarded an empty land that was neither moving nor dead. This dragon’s armor was sought after, as it was believed that the armor could grant wishes and give power. Many came hoping to claim the armor for their own reason, be them good or evil, but Majora killed them all. One day, a mysterious man visited Majora. This man played music for the dragon, who danced for three days and three nights before dying, supposedly allowing time to move forward. The man then carved a mask from the creature’s hide, hoping to seal its power.
