Happy Mask Salesman's Comment

You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?

Captain's Hat

That's the Captain's Hat, isn't it? That is a splendid thing. It earns the respect and sworn allegiance of legions of soldiers.

Uses and Location

MM3D Captain's Hat Icon.png

The Captain's Hat is obtained after Link awakens and defeats Captain Keeta. Link must awaken Captain Keeta from where he rests near the Ikana Graveyard using the "Sonata of Awakening." After he defeats Captain Keeta, he will submit to Link's power,[1] and tell him of the defeat he suffered while serving as the commander of the Ikana Army.[2] After making his final request, he shows the hero a Treasure Chest containing the Captain's Hat and takes his leave.[3] Link must then use the Hookshot or jump across the bridge guardrails to claim the mask.

The hat is designed to resemble Captain Keeta, and as such, displays itself as a symbol of authority. Anyone who wears it is immediately mistaken for Captain Keeta. This causes Stalchildren to not attack Link, and also allows him to communicate with them and take command.[4] This feature can be used in the Ikana Graveyard to open the graves that lead Beneath the Graveyard. In here, Link can find the "Song of Storms," a Piece of Heart, and a Bottle. Link can also use the mask in the Oceanside Spider House to obtain another Piece of Heart by solving the secret puzzle of the house.[5]

The mask can also be used to make ReDeads dance, ignoring Link.

Non-Canon Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, the Captain's Hat appears as a costume for Wizzro in the Majora's Mask DLC pack.


  • If Link wears the mask right before he battles Igos du Ikana, he will think that Link is Captain Keeta. The game will go into a short cutscene before returning to the battle.[6][7]
  • The Captain's Hat is one of six masks that are necessary to complete the game, the others being the three transformation masks, the Garo's Mask, and the Gibdo Mask.
  • The Poe Collector comments on the Captain's Hat, but does not allow Link into Ikana Canyon.[8]

  1. "Wait! It is my loss! Sheathe your weapon..." — Captain Keeta (Majora's Mask)
  2. "I commanded the Ikana Army of Ikana Kingdom atop the hill. I am called Skull Keeta. Since being shamed by loss in a battle within my kingdom... I have waited here for one to come and awaken my soul." — Captain Keeta (Majora's Mask)
  3. "Young swordsman who has awakened and deftly defeated me... I shall rely on your power to fulfill my request. I ask you to take my soul, which rests in the fiercely burning flame... And convey my words to my men, who, even in death, remain loyal to me. Tell them the war has ended... Then I shall be able to drift quietly into sleep... Captain, sir! May I take leave, sir?" — Captain Keeta (Majora's Mask)
  4. "Ah! Captain, sir! It's been a long time since we've seen you!" — Stalchild (Majora's Mask)
  5. "Ah! Captain, sir! It's been a long time since we've seen you! As you have ordered, sir, we are investigating the secrets of this place." — Stalchild (Majora's Mask)
  6. "Trick the king into thinking he's seeing a child-sized version of Captain Keeta by wearing the Captain's Hat during your bone-rattling battle with the skeletal Stalfos knights and Igos himself. When the king sees you up close, he'll give you a shocked and silly reaction." (The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Official Nintendo Player's Guide (Nintendo Power), pg. 134)
  7. "Ohhh! Keeta! Is it not Captain Keeta?!? ...............But you're so... ...T-Tiny!!! I was nearly fooled by what you have done..." — Igos du Ikana (Majora's Mask)
  8. "Yee-hee-hee. You are wearing an interesting hat. That is the hat of the captain whose soldiers once served to protect the castle on the hilltop. Now it is the gathering place for the spirits of those with lingering regrets. Until now they wander, seeking one who can save them. You cannot save them with that mask... Have you no other? It is unfortunate, but I cannot let you pass. Yee-hee-hee." — Poe Collector (Majora's Mask)
