Location and Uses
The mask can be obtained from the Happy Mask Shop after paying for the Keaton Mask. As part of the Mask Trading Sequence, the Skull Mask is sold to the Skull Kid in the Lost Woods, who easily sees through Link's disguise and recognizes him. He remarks that it is a strange mask, but that he likes it and thinks it will make him look tougher, before asking Link to sell it to him. However he only pays 10 Rupees for it, 10 less than the mask's actual price, meaning that Link will have to make up for the difference himself. After selling the Skull Mask, Link is able to receive the Spooky Mask from the Happy Mask Shop.
Like other masks in the game, the Skull Mask will solicit different reactions than normal when talking to people. It also has the added effect of preventing Keese from attacking Link while he wears it. The mask is required to obtain a Deku Stick capacity upgrade in the Forest Stage in the Lost Woods. If Link stands in front of the young Deku Scrubs while wearing the Skull Mask, they will swarm around him happily. The elder Deku Scrub will explain that Link resembles their "sacred forest totem," and reward him with the upgrade.
