??? is a character in Majora's Mask.[2]

Biography

Each night at midnight, ??? emerges from the toilet of the Stock Pot Inn asking for paper.[3] It remains until 6:00 AM. Link can give it any item made of paper. After doing so, ??? disappears and a toilet flush is heard. ??? re-emerges with a Piece of Heart that fell into the toilet.[4]

Trivia

  • The concept of a hand in the toilet is based on Japanese ghost stories where a hand grabs from beneath the toilet whenever someone sits in the bathroom.[5]
  • When Link holds up the Piece of Heart, ??? imitates him by holding up its palm.
  • ???'s voice is the exact same as Mikau's when Link first meets him at the Great Bay Region.
