The Masked Followers are a group that appears in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Their members can be found all over Lorule, though their origins appear to be in Thieves' Town. The Masked Elder is their apparent leader, and he can be found on a large platform in the west of the town, preaching their ideals. The Masked Followers can be easily recognized by the Masks they wear, resembling monsters. They appear to have several members, as almost everyone in the town can be found wearing one. The group seems to be a response to the destruction of Lorule and an alternative to becoming a thief, as many others have. According to the Masked Elder, they believe that they can be saved from "corruption" by becoming monsters and wearing the masks. Their signature phrase is "Mumbo jumbo, mumbo jumbo." Many Loruleans joined the Masked Followers to escape problems they have had in their lives. The Bird-Masked Man put on a mask because his bird friends turned into monsters and he wanted to join them. The Thief Girl also steals a mask from what she claims was an abandoned house, but she simply wants to hide her identity.
