Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Goron Mask is one of four special masks that Link may borrow from the Happy Mask Shop after completing the Happy Mask side quest. It has no special features, and it is only used for comedic purposes, such as inducing various reactions from other people.

The Gorons are seemingly fooled by the mask and say that Link has to eat green rocks to grow up big and strong. The exception is Darunia, who is angered upon seeing Link in the mask. If Link wears the mask in front of a Zora in Zora's Domain, it will say that he doesn't look like he can swim very well, which may be because Gorons cannot swim. Interestingly, if Link wears the mask and shows it to King Zora, he will say that it reminds him of his childhood friend, Biggoron.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

The Goron Mask is one of four Masks that allow Link to transform. It is obtained after playing the Song of Healing to soothe the soul of the ghost of Darmani. When wearing it Link is transformed into Goron Link. In this form, the hero can smash boulders and curl up into a ball to travel at rapid speeds. It is essential to completing Snowhead Temple and defeating Goht in battle.

In the 3DS remake, Link can use it to make Colossal Catfish appear at the base of the Stone Pillar in the Swamp Fishing Hole by performing a Ground Pound on the pillar. It also grants Link the strength necessary to reel in a Grand Swordfish in the Ocean Fishing Hole.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

The Goron Mask, along with the All-Night Mask, Bunny Hood, and Keaton Mask, can be seen on a wall behind Carlov in the Nintendo Gallery.
