??? (Majora's Mask)
Each night at midnight, ??? emerges from the toilet of the Stock Pot Inn asking for paper. 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.
- 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.
- 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.
