In Majora's Mask, the Final Day, also known as the Third Day, is the last of the three total days that Link has before the Moon crashes into Clock Town and destroys all of Termina. From the dawn of this day, the young hero and Tatl only have 24 hours left to complete whatever tasks they have yet to resolve.
The citizens of Clock Town are all now aware of the impending doom that is about to befall them, and the environment and theme of Clock Town once again reflect the desperate state of Termina: slight earthquakes have begun to unravel throughout the land at random times, and the Clock Town music has taken a darker tone along with a frantic rhythm. The majority of the townsfolk already have their plans of evacuation ready, and the knights, who are being forced to stay at their guard, are urging the remaining citizens to evacuate as soon as possible. However, some people such as Mutoh openly ignore this command and call the townspeople cowards. The sky highly contrasts that of the First Day, for it is now covered with dark tones that illustrate the depressing and somber fate of Termina. Once night arrives, most of the shops will be closed, and the few of the citizens will have evacuated to Romani Ranch in hopes of staying safe from the threat of the now-giant moon, turning Clock Town from a lively, cheerful place to a bleak, desolate town (although a few residents of the ranch realize it is not any safer there). The remaining citizens who have not fled town either refuse to believe the Moon is falling, have given up hope, or are not aware of the situation. At midnight, the Eve of the Carnival of Time begins and a dark theme plays all over Termina (except in dungeons) with the trembles growing more fierce and frequent.
Link cannot use the Song of Double Time, dance with Pierre, or listen to Anju's Grandmother's stories to advance to the next day. In Majora's Mask 3D, Link can advance until the final hour when using the Song of Double Time.
