From Zelda Legends Wiki
One of the masks in Majora's Mask which will change Link's form. The Deku Mask is used to turn Link into a Deku Scrub.
DescriptionDeku Scrub. When Link wears this mask he is still wearing his green hat. His facial features change to that of the mask, and he also gains yellow leaves, to give the impression of hear, which are visable under the front of his hat. His body appears to be the size of his head. He is also much lighter because he can hop on the surface of water (see abilities).
While wearing the Deku Mask, and inhabiting the body of a Deku Skrub, Link has several abilities which he does not have in his normal form.
Bubble BlastThe third is the bubble blast. After recieving magic power from the Great Fairy in North Clock Town, the player can hold the B button, which puts you in first person mode, and see a bubble expanding.
Water HopSouthern Swamp where the water is poisonous. However, you can only have a maximum of 5 hops, and if the water is deep, you will sink to the bottom and return the where you were last at the waters edge.
Every for of Link in Majoras Mask has a different shield. Deku Links shield is a nut shell, which covers all of him. This is a useful shield as it protects him from above as well. Unfortunatly, it does not protect against any sort of fire attects as He is made from wood.
The instrument used by Deku Link is the Deku Pipes. They souind like a trumpet.
How it is Obtained
Like most of the other transforming masks, this one is obtained after playing the song of healing to heal someone, in this case yourself. After you get The Ocarina of Time back, the Happy Mask Salesman will teach you the Song of Healing. After the Demo, which shows Link waving to a group of Deku Scrubs, the mask will drop on the floor, and you will be able to keep it and freely transform into a Deku Scrub.
Said by the Deku Butler after beating him i a race.
"Actually, when I see you, I am reminded of my son who left home long ago... Somehow, I feel as if I am once again racing with my son..."
What the dog in Clock town is thinking.
"Ruff-ruff! Where'd that Deku Scrub go? When I see his face, I get all riled up!
|Japanese||デクナッツの仮面 (DEKU NATTSU no Kamen)|
Except for the German translation they are all the same. The German version calls this mask a Deku Shell. Note that the Japanese name for the mask uses the Japanese name for the Deku Scrub, "Deku Nuts." Perhaps a more faithful translation would have been "Deku Scrub Mask" rather than "Deku Mask."
