Skull Kids look similar to Kokiri, which lends credence to Navi's explanation; the chief differences are that their skin is made out of wood, their eyes are glowing yellow, and they have a beak instead of a mouth; however, in ''Twilight Princess'', Skull Kids do appear to have a mouth. Although Skull Kids tend to like to wear masks over their faces, the majority of them do not. While Skull Kids tend to be friendly towards younger Hylians, they show a fear towards adults and will attack them on sight.

This article is about the race. For the character in Majora's Mask, see Skull Kid (character).

Skull Kids are a race of cursed beings that reappear throughout the Legend of Zelda series.

They are suggested by Navi to be what Kokiri become if they get lost in the woods and can't get back out. However, Skull Kids are not the only possible example of creatures being transformed by the woods; according to a young Kokiri that Link meets on one of his sidequests in Ocarina of Time, Hylians gradually become Stalfos if they get lost in the woods, and in Four Swords Adventures, the Dekus claim that getting lost will turn someone into one of them.

Skull Kids look similar to Kokiri, which lends credence to Navi's explanation; the chief differences are that their skin is made out of wood, their eyes are glowing yellow, and they have a beak instead of a mouth; however, in Twilight Princess, Skull Kids do appear to have a mouth. Although Skull Kids tend to like to wear masks over their faces, the majority of them do not. While Skull Kids tend to be friendly towards younger Hylians, they show a fear towards adults and will attack them on sight.

The most famous member of this race is the Skull Kid that stole Majora's Mask from the Happy Mask Salesman. In Ocarina of Time, another Skull Kid befriends and gives Link a Piece of Heart after he plays "Saria's Song" for him, and later buys the Skull Mask from him. Another pair of Skull Kids will give Link a Piece of Heart if he can complete their Ocarina memory game.
