Majora’s Mask – ‘Terrible Fate’ Fan Film Shows Skull Kid’s Dark Origin Story (VIDEO)

A fan-made, animated short based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has made its way to YouTube. The film, Majora’s Mask- Terible Fate, by YouTuber EmberLab is less than five minutes long, but gives us a look at what a Legend of Zelda based movie could look like.

EmberLab’s description of the animated film is as follows:

A tribute to the legendary game, this short showcases Skull Kid’s dark origin story. Our take on how the Zelda Universe could be realized in film. A labor of love for all those involved, this is a gift to the fans.

The short starts with a black screen. A voice narrates as the infamous Majora’s Mask fades into frame:

“Here, at the end of things, I can still feel its power. When I found it, I could sense the doom of a dark omen brewing.”

As the familiar face of the Happy Mask Salesman comes into frame, we see him sitting at a grand organ inside a clock tower. As he looks in despair at the revolving gear:

“And now, that Imp has it.”

We then cut to a raindrops falling in the forest. Skull Kid is sitting against a tree donning a bird beak mask. Two fairies approach him and mischief ensues. Skull Kid and his new friends have a joyous time playing music, finding rupees, and playing with forest creatures. We get to see a different side of the character than we are used to.

The next scene is that of the Happy Mask Salesman wandering the forest with his backpack full of varying masks. One of those masks being a nice easter egg to another Nintendo fan favorite. The Salesman has set up camp and is sitting beside a fire. In his hands is the mask of Majora. After studying the mask, the Salesman’s eyes roll back and he is left unconscious. Skull Kid soon finds the Salesman and the mask. What happens next is best described by watching the full video below:
