This page lists secrets and unlockables in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
Alternate Opening Video
When starting the game, right after pressing start, press up. Then press the A button on the options box and then press the B button. Let it save. After the game finishes saving, press the B button again to get back to the start screen and instead of the start screen showing Clock Town, it will show Romani Ranch. Alternatively, watch the regular opening video and wait for the next introductory cycle (Majora's Mask and the Happy Mask Salesman cutscenes).
Deku Spin Attack 2.0
In the 3DS remake, when Deku Link performs the Deku spin attack, he will briefly sprout a spiked tree branch from his hat/head. This change was likely done to give a reason for how Deku Link could damage/kill enemies by simply spinning around and/or was added as part of the game's updated graphics. However, it should be noted that the change is only visual.
Deku Palace Guard Line of Sight
In Deku Palace, the guards in the Inner Palace Gardens will have a line of white orbs in front of them. These orbs represent their line of sight. If Link touches one, his presence is detected, and he is transported back to the front of the palace. This makes traversing the garden by night easier than during daylight.
An Easter egg is a term used to describe a cameo or a brief appearance for someone or something that comes within the game.
- In the Clock Tower, if Link goes under the water in his Zora form, he can see four pieces of algae shaped like Nintendo 64 controllers.
- In the Astral Observatory, if Link breaks a small pot, a drawing of a dolphin is found underneath. This is thought to be a reference to "Dolphin," the original code name for the Nintendo GameCube console.
- A mask on the Happy Mask Salesman's backpack resembles Mario. There are other masks resembling Darth Maul from Star Wars and Elvis. There is also a mask that looks like the face on the Mirror Shield.
- If Link uses the Bremen Mask in the battle against Igos' Servants, they will stop attacking and begin to march around the room, while still avoiding the light. This, however, appears to be nothing more than an easter egg, as Link cannot attack while he is marching, and as soon as he stops, Igos' Servants resume fighting him. It may, however, be used to damage them, if Link attacks quickly enough.
- After defeating Igos' Servants and starting the battle with Igos himself, if Link uses the Captain's Hat a brief and humorous cut-scene will begin. Igos admits he was almost fooled into believing that Link was Captain Keeta, however quickly discovers that was not the case because Keeta is not that "tiny."
- Cremia and Romani both wear brooches in the shape of Bowser's head, though this is likely due to their in-games models being the same ones used in Ocarina of Time for Malon as both a young girl (used for Romani) and an young woman (used for Cremia). In OoT, Malon and her father Talon wore these same brooches. Their presence in the game, is likely a result of the developers reusing Malon's design models from OoT to represent Cremia and Romani.
- Link can find a paper airplane atop the south-eastern most pillar of Ancient Castle of Ikana's courtyard.
- In the northern area of Termina Field, there is a drawing of the Skull Kid on the wall by the stairs that lead to the higher area where Clock Town is. Beneath the drawing are inscribed notes that, when played in the correct order on the Ocarina of Time, will cause Rupees to come out of the Skull Kid drawing. Surprisingly, some of the randomly generated notes that can be played are, in fact, the warp songs from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
- On Termina field, through the use of an emulator and of a code that allows levitation, it is possible to see the same drawing of the Skull Kid drawn on the field.
- On the Mask Select screen, it is noticeable that the second row's alignment resembles characters from the video game series Star Fox. This includes (In order): the Keaton Mask (Fox McCloud), the Bremen Mask (Falco Lombardi), the Bunny Hood (Peppy Hare), Don Gero's Mask (Slippy Toad), and the Mask of Scents (Pigma Dengar).
- On the back of Anju's Grandmother's wheelchair, there is a picture of a tiger, a reference to the pet tiger owned by her Hyrulean equivalent, Granny.
- In the Nintendo 3DS remake, in the corner of Romani & Cremia's bedroom near Romani's bed, there is doll in the form of Ganondorf's Gerudo Stallion from Ocarina of Time.
- In the Nintendo 3DS remake, a stone Wii Remote can be seen in the bedroom of the Goron Elder's Son.
- Looking through the peephole (which allows one to see through the eyes of the Iron Knuckle armor behind the Curiosity Shops counter) in Kafei's Hideout, a toy R.O.B. can be seen on some boxes in the corner behind the counter of the of the Curiosity Shop.
Free Boat Cruises
Link can get a free trip on Old Koume's Boat Cruise in the Southern Swamp by taking a pictograph with the Pictograph Box and giving it to the Guide. The prize for any pictograph is a choice between 10 Rupees and a free boat cruise.
Goron Hammer Drop
As Goron Link, Link can perform a Ground Pound by curling up into a ball and pressing the Pound Action Button. Interestingly, the Ground Pound causes the ground to shake and as a result, it causes Tektites to flip over (unless they are in mid-jump) just like the Megaton Hammer from Ocarina of Time.
Goron Pound 2.0
In the 3DS Remake, while in mid-air during the technique, Goron Link's curled up body hardens and takes on a dark gray stone coloration before falling back to the ground to deliver the earth shaking ground pound.
Goron Quake Fishing
In the Swamp Fishing Hole in the 3DS remake, there is a fish called the Colossal Catfish that is sensitive to earthquakes (which is a reference to an old Japanese legend of a catfish that can cause earthquakes). On the Final Day, a Colossal Catfish sometimes be found in the fishing hole and can be lured out using a Goron ground pound.
If the "Song of Healing" has been learned, Link can play the song to make any wooden sign he destroys put itself back together, just as Zelda's Lullaby did in Ocarina of Time. It is likely this hidden/secret ability was added to the song due to Zelda's Lullaby being absent in Majora's Mask and/or it is a reference to the song's name, as it is capable of "healing" broken signs in addition to its ability to heal spirits and curses.

In North Clock Town, Milk Road, and Mountain Village are a group of bushes that move when Link picks one of them up or cuts one of them.

In the 3DS remake, these cow bobble heads can be found in various establishments all over Clock Town such as the Stock Pot Inn, the Mayor's Residence, Swordsman's School, Clock Town Bank, Bomb Shop, Trading Post, and the Curiosity Shop.
The entrance to the Goron Shrine is normally closed, requiring Link to talk to the door's Goron Gatekeeper to got him to open it. However it is possible for Link to open the door without talking to the Goron, provided he has obtained the Goron Mask. As Goron Link, Link gains the ability to use the Goron Ground Pound and if he uses it in the vicinity of the shrine's door (doesn't matter where as long as it is preformed near the door), it will open. Apparently the door is sensitive to the Goron ground pound as the Shrine's Gatekeeper also uses the technique to open the door when Link asks him to.
Opposite & Unequal Notes
When Link plays the Ocarina of Time, hold the Control Stick down and press C-Left. It will sound like C-Right. Or hold the Control Stick up and press C-Right. It will sound like C-Left. This also occurs in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
When Mikau plays the guitar, rotating the Control Stick will make Mikau move his body (while standing still) corresponding with the direction of the Control Stick. While Mikau is in these different stances, the guitar can still be played with the C-Stick however the notes will sound very different. Also, if Link plays a song that he has already learned, it won't have any effect (Ex. The Song of Time won't send Link back in time). It has to be played in a normal stance.
When Link plays the Ocarina of Time he can add vibrato to the notes by moving the Control Stick left or right. He can also change the tuning of a note by pressing the Z-button to move down or pressing the R-button to move up.
