Chosen One of the Day: The moon in Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask Moon

Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series is at times sweet, at times dark, at times strange, and at times absolutely g*ddamn terrifying. We’ve talked about Majora’s Mask, the follow-up to 1998’s critically-acclaimed and much lauded best-Zelda-of-all-time Ocarina of Time, before. It’s a critical darling in its own right, but it is a weird, weird game. 

Ostensibly, you get transported to another world and have three days to save the land of Termina from a hellion of a moon threatening to come down and crash, obliterating everyone. At first, the moon is a threat brought on by a Majora’s Mask-possessed Skull Kid. But then the mask realizes there’s bigger game afoot and decides to possess the actual, literal moon instead leading to this f***ing monstrosity bearing down on you on the Final Day.
