"Could this mask's dark powers be as bad as Majora?"
— In-game description

The Fierce Deity's Mask (鬼神の仮面 Kijin no Kamen?, Japanese: Demon God's Mask) is the final transformation mask that Link can obtain in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The mask allows Link to transform into the avatar of a mighty god, Fierce Deity, with the capability to shoot Sword Beams. Because of this, it can only be worn during boss battles, unless glitches are used. Nobuyuki Hiyama, the voice actor of adult Link in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, also voices Fierce Deity Link. The design for Link as Fierce Deity is clearly based on adult Link's character model in Ocarina of Time, albeit with different colors, markings, and a unique sword. Also, Fierce Deity Link is much taller than adult Link, standing only slightly shorter than Odolwa at around eight feet (2.4 m).

Acquisition

Link can obtain the Fierce Deity's Mask by trading the twenty non-transformation masks to the four Lunar Children wearing the Boss Remains at the Moon. Ironically, Link obtains the mask from the child wearing Majora's Mask just prior to the final battle with Majora. The child gives him the Fierce Deity's Mask so that the two of them can play "good guys against bad guys" together. Fierce Deity's Mask is not required to defeat Majora, but it makes the battle much easier. The difficulty of any of the bosses fought will be greatly reduced if using the Fierce Deity's Mask, aside from Twinmold, who is very difficult to hit with the mask on. Also, though the abilities granted by the mask can inflict great damage on Goht, the fact that he runs around the arena makes it difficult to take aim, and Link's speed is not enough to catch up to the mechanical beast.

Theory

Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.

Some believe that the Fierce Deity was a nemesis of Majora's, possibly the hero who sealed Majora into the mask long ago, as is implied in the Majora's Mask manga.[1] If this is the case, then Majora likely gives Link the mask in order to defeat both Link and the spirit inhabiting the mask at the same time. This theory assumes that the Lunar Child wearing Majora's Mask is influenced by or a personification of Majora.

Other theories include that the mask was given either through naivety or insanity, or that the Lunar Child is not Majora, but a manifestation of Skull Kid's gentle inner self, who gives Link the Fierce Deity's Mask so that Link can defeat Majora and save Termina.
