The Goron Drums,[1] also known as the Drums of Sleep,[2] are an item in Majora's Mask.

Location and Uses

MM3D Goron Drums Icon.png

The Goron Drums are obtained alongside the Goron Mask after Link heals Darmani's soul. It replaces the Ocarina of Time when transformed into a Goron. Link must play them to learn the "Goron Lullaby" from the Goron Elder and his son to put the latter to sleep. By playing the song on the Goron Drums in Snowhead, Link can put to sleep Biggoron, allowing passage to Snowhead Temple.


  • The Goron Drums existed as an independent C-Button item in the original Majora's Mask. Their icon was coded into the game but was not implemented in the final release.[3] It can be seen in certain pre-release screenshots. The icon was later used in Majora's Mask 3D.
