This article is about the race. For other uses, see Skull Kid (disambiguation).
Skullkids are a race of cursed people that reside within the Lost Woods. According to local legend, if someone from outside the realm of the woods enters the forest and loses their way, they will gradually turn into either a stalfos if they are an adult, or a skullkid if they are a child. Skullkids themselves look similar to small Hylians, except that their skin is made out of wood, their eyes are glowing yellow, and they have a beak instead of a mouth (although the Twilight Princess version of skullkids do appear to have a mouth). Although Skullkids tend to like to wear masks over their faces, the majority of them do not. While skullkids are friendly to 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.
