- — In-game description
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 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 becomes Goron Link allowing him to smash boulders and curl up into a ball to travel at rapid speeds.
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 Goron Mask appears as Darunia's Mask costume, which can be unlocked in the Majora's Mask DLC Adventure Map. The Goron Mask also appears as one of the Item Cards for the Termina Adventure Map. It is used on switches found on the search screen to reveal enemies
