The Final Day is the last of the three total days that Link has before the Moon crashes into Clock Town and destroys all of Termina in Majora's Mask.[name reference needed] From the dawn of this day, the young hero and Tatl only have 24 hours left to complete whatever tasks they have yet to resolve.


Many of the citizens of Clock Town are now aware of the impending doom that is about to befall them, and the environment and theme of Clock Town once again reflect the desperate state of Termina: slight earthquakes begun to unravel throughout the entire land at random times, and the Clock Town music has taken a darker tone along with a frantic rhythm. The majority of the townsfolk already have their plans of evacuation ready, and the Knights, who are being forced to stay at their guard, are urging the remaining citizens to evacuate as soon as possible. However, some people such as Mutoh openly ignore this command and call the townspeople cowards. The daytime sky highly contrasts that of the First Day, for it is now turned a sickly green (In Majora's Mask 3D, the sky is mostly clear with a few purple highlights, and only the horizon turns green) similar to that of a real-world severe thunderstorm containing hail or a tornado, illustrating the depressing and somber fate of Termina. Once night arrives with only 12 hours left, almost all of the shops will be closed, and the majority of the citizens have evacuated out of town, a few to Romani Ranch in hopes of staying safe from the deadly threat of the now dangerously close Moon, turning Clock Town from a lively, cheerful place to a bleak, desolate ghost town (although the few residents of the ranch soon realize it is not any safer there).[1][2] The remaining citizens who have not fled town either refuse to believe the Moon is falling, have given up hope, or are not aware of the situation.[3][4] At midnight, the Eve of the Carnival of Time begins and a dark theme plays all over Termina (except in Dungeons), with the earthquakes becoming more fierce and frequent over time. At this stage, the Clock Tower's bell will toll frequently and progressively faster as the final hours tick down. From 12:00AM, it tolls every 10 Terminan minutes, until 5AM, where it starts tolling every 5 Terminan minutes. Upon 5:30 AM, it tolls every 3 Terminan minutes until time is up and the Moon crashes into Termina, warning the player they should use the Song of Time before it's too late and ultimately result a Game Over.

Link cannot use the Song of Double Time, dance with Pierre, or listen to Granny's stories to advance to the next day. In Majora's Mask 3D, Link can advance until 5AM, the final hour, when using the Song of Double Time.

  • The Moon begins visibly descending in real-time during the Final Day.[5]
  • In the original N64 version of Majora's Mask, the night sky changes to dawn as Termina's final hours tick down. However, in Majora's Mask 3D, the sky stays eerily red throughout the entire night of the Final Day, even if Link calls the Four Giants and halts the moon's descent, as well as in the resulting scenes.
  • In the Japanese version of the game, the Final Day is called "The Last Day".
