The Gerudo Mask is an item in Ocarina of Time.[1]

Location and Uses

The Gerudo Mask is one of four special Masks that Link may borrow after selling all of the Masks that he was asked to sell from the Happy Mask Salesman.[2] It serves no significant purpose, merely getting odd reactions from the civilians of Hyrule.[3][4][5][6][7]

While wearing the Mask, it makes people think that Link is a woman and causes Gerudo thieves to be a bit annoyed.[8] Darunia, the "big boss of the Gorons", will respond by saying that he hates Gerudos,[9] most likely because the Gerudo Leader, Ganondorf, had sealed Dodongo's Cavern. Nabooru reacts to the Mask by commenting that it looks like her, but retracts her opinion not long after.[10] If King Zora is spoken to with the Gerudo Mask, he responds that it gives him the chills.[11] Although, King Zora's daughter Princess Ruto will tell Link that he is a "funny guy" when wearing the Mask.[12] Talon will comment that the Mask reminds him of his wife, but will quickly take back his words.[13] If the dancing couple Honey and Darling are confronted while the Mask if equipped, Darling apologizes, as he does not want to look at any other woman besides Honey.[14] While speaking with Saria, she will remark that it looks "cool", but is also frightening.[15]
