Ocarina Transformation icons
from Majora's Mask 3D
Although the pipes sound like a trumpet, Deku Link's form and lack of lips would make such an instrument impossible to play. The instrument's unusual playing method, multiple bells, and sound make it an unusual cross between the sarrusophone and the double bell euphonium.
Link must play them to learn the Lullaby Intro from the Goron Elder, then again to learn the rest of the Goron Lullaby from the Goron Elder's son and put him to sleep (as well as the other Gorons in the chamber). The Goron Lullaby can be played on the Goron Drums to put the Goron Elder's son to sleep in subsequent cycles. By playing the Goron Lullaby on the Goron Drums in Snowhead, Goron Link can tranquilize Biggoron (who was creating a blizzard that made accessing the template impossible), allowing passage to Snowhead Temple.
The Goron Drums are not exact replications of any real life drum, but they most closely resemble the djembe in sound, shape, construction, method of playing, and aesthetic design. Unlike usual djembes, the Goron Drums are arranged in a group of 5 around Goron Link's body with little visible support holding the drums up. This is similar to a tenor drum (also called quads or quints) used in marching bands and drum corps groups, although the Goron Drums are not arranged in the same pattern as a set of tenor drums.
Link must play it to learn New Wave Bossa Nova from the Zora hatchlings. By playing the New Wave Bossa Nova on the Zora Guitar to Lulu in the Zora Cape, Zora Link can awaken the Turtle, who will take Link to the Great Bay Temple.
It sounds like a 6-string electric guitar. It resembles a Desbreko.
In January 2001, Nintendo Power held a contest where the grand prize winner would receive a copy of Majora's Mask and a special edition guitar based on the Zora Guitar. The "Fish Bone" guitar was a custom-made 7-string guitar by Jackson Guitars.
- The Ocarina transformations originally existed as independent C-Button items. Their icons are coded into the game but were not implemented in the release. They can be seen in certain pre-release screenshots. These icons later appeared in the game's remake, Majora's Mask 3D.
- Skull Kid's flute in Twilight Princess resembles the Pipes of Awakening.
- Despite being left-handed, Link plays the Zora Guitar right-handed as Zora Link. This may be a result of Mikau being right-handed.
