Help us reach 1 million subs! ► http://tinyurl.com/mrd2ntg More PBG Zelda Month! ► http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBdDvuv4oZE Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is a DARK game! Clearly, one of the game's major themes is death, but just how dark does it REALLY get? Is it possible that this game is all about Link, Nintendo's signature mascot, dealing with his own death? Today on Game Theory, we review the evidence!

My two favorite Youtubers mashing up! Did that sound wrong?
He did not die in majora mask he returned Hyrule but he was not remembered as a hero of time but he was respected knight in Hyrule He died in battle
Jsjsjsj Bsbsnsns (3 days ago)
This theory is false because Nintendo even said in hyrule historian that link came back from terminal and became a knight

Does the lakeside laboratory scientist have the same contemplation of thought when link is in a child and an adult? or does he change I can’t remember

Nitendo already said that this thory is wrong. How can link be a stalfose if he is a kid? Kids turn into skull-kids.

This is a great theory, but like you said, Twilight Princess Link is confirmed (i.e. Hyrule Hystoria) as the descendant of the Hero of Time. Majora’s Mask Link would have had to survive to had kids and grandkids and ancestors to birth TP Link.
KIKA (8 days ago)
Also, Skull kid doesn't actually show any kind of supernatural power until AFTER Link falls. Before that, he just seems normal. He waddles over to link and plays the ocarina, but isn't flying about and using incredible transforming powers until Link first sees him after his fall, making the scenario seem even more interesting and odd. Just a thought. I love this video and I'm actually replaying the game with my husband (since he's never played it) for my 3rd complete time, and I noticed this change in skull kid's behavior in the beginning. ♡
Jime43 (3 days ago)
Actually, the Skull Kid does show a supernatural power before Link falls. When Skull Kid is first introduced, his body is invisible, you can only see the mask, then shortly after, you can see his body fade to be visible. Unless you mean Link falling off Epona?

Edison Mei (8 days ago)
link can't be dead 1) falling on deku flowers negate fall damage 2) the hero of time is related by blood to the hero of twilight. which implies that link had to have a love interest before dying to have children. unless you expect me to believe a ten year old child knocked up a woman and had a kid (BTW's this isn't hate I do like your channel a lot)

do you actually use a theory wheel ? (reference in multiple vids. )
Frezomere Serafimu (10 days ago)
One thing my brother told me about this game that he believed is that Every time Link dies in his journey Majora's Mask occurs for link to either let the moon attack happen and him accept his fate or potentially beat Majora's Mask and prevent the moon attack to continue the original journey

Lol i'd like to see a youtuber play one of the zelda games but have to beat Majora's mask every time they die

Well if last time he was an adult and younger now he died last time. RIP Zelda
George King of England (11 days ago)
I can disprove this theory as the Hero's Shade appears in Twilight Princess, and he is the same link from Majora's mask, and his skeleton is that of an adult.

So link dies and comes back to fight his stalthos form

Shawn Gray (17 days ago)
This is not a good theory......the game continually rejects this theory. One exzampel is sharp the music brother says to you,"this place is not for one as full as life as you are,prhapes you wish to join the dead."this alone let's us know link is not dead.

Even if he did go to purgatory, he could’ve escaped. I’ve temporarily died before while having a seizure and even remember seeing my body on the ground. I didn’t make it to purgatory but i saw enough to understand you can come back if you’re lucky.

Link is not dead in MM... The game is the first chapter of young links timeline post OoT... This video isn't a theory. It fails to follow the cannon of LoZ.

Wait, if all the characters are descendants between games, then Link (and Epona) would have died before they could give life to their descendants, and their spirits would have switched bloodlines.

Hey! At Ikana canion, Sharp says: "this is no place for one as full of life as you", proving that link is alive in "Majora's mask"!

I don't think a cartridge that isn't haunted wouldn't say "you've met with a terrible fate haven't you" or "You shouldn't have done that "

Just something to say to the hella salty people...IT'S A THERORY!!
If Link is dead, care to explain how Twilight Princess Link is born? Termina is not a purgatory it is a parallel universe, Link landed on a Deku Flower, and didn't take damage, The Shell indicates the original form of the Fierce Deity, before he became a God, the pupils on the shell proves that Link is alive, and my next point has nothing to do with that horrific scene from Pinocchio, where the kids at Pleasure Island become Donkeys for making asses of themselves, the adults who foolishly get lost in the Lost Woods, become Stalfos, if Link did die, he couldn't become one, he would have become a Skull Kid, and the Hero's Shade is a spirit, not a Stalfos, that proves that Link is Alive, in Majora's Mask, case closed. https://youtu.be/_0YKrA12C2o
