Skull Kid: He's my best friend and I miss him so much


One first interacts with Link in Ocarina of Time, and later plays a major villainous role in Majora's Mask. Skull Kids dress in a red cloak and hat covering an underlayer of clothing composed of a straw-like material, and play a flute, which they can also use as a weapon to shoot projectiles. (Source: zelda.fandom.com A Skull Kid can be found in the Lost Woods in the area directly to the left of the entrance room in Ocarina of Time. Whenever Link approaches, the Skull Kid will disappear from the area. To circumvent this, Link can befriend the Skull Kid by playing "Saria's Song" while standing on top of the stump across from the Skull Kid's position. He will then receive a Piece of Heart as a gift.

A Skull Kid becomes a central character in Majora's Mask. Under the influence of Majora's Mask, which he stole from the Happy Mask Salesman, the Skull Kid becomes a powerful sorcerer. Using this newfound magical might, he wreaks havoc on the land of Termina, ultimately attempting to destroy it by sending the Moon on a collision course with the land. He appears to be the main antagonist through most of the game, though he himself is not evil and is merely being controlled by the powers of Majora's Mask. (Source: zelda.fandom.com)

Long ago, before the land of Termina was split into four regions, the Skull Kid befriended the Four Giants. (Source: zelda.fandom.com Whether the Skull Kid actually "returned to the heavens," or not is merely a hyperbole in this story told by Anju's Grandmother, Skull Kid somehow reappears in Termina prior to the events of Majora's Mask. The two Fairy siblings, Tatl and Tael, stumble upon the Skull Kid taking shelter from a storm in a tree hollow in Termina Field. He tells the Fairies that he has been quarreling with his friends and that they have abandoned him. (Source:zelda.fandom.com))

Along with Tatl and Tael, Skull Kid—now wearing Majora's Mask—ambushes the young hero in a similar way to that of the Happy Mask Salesman. Startled by their sudden appearance, Epona rears up and throws Link off, knocking him unconscious. While comatose, Skull Kid rummages through Link's belongings and finds the Ocarina of Time. Fascinated by the object, he plays with the Ocarina until Link awakens. Once he realizes that Link is awake, he jumps on Epona and rides away with the Ocarina. Link pursues him, falling into the hollow tree trunk that serves as the passageway to Termina. (Source: zelda.fandom.com Though the dubious nature of Termina’s existence has no concrete “true” description, many theorize that upon donning the Mask, a combination of the burdens in the Skull Kid's heart and the evil magic inside Majora's Mask transformed a world into the land of Termina.
