“I wonder… The face under the mask… Is that…your true face?” – Moon Child
It’s human nature to hide. In one-way or another we all wear a mask of some form from time to time. We like to put on personas to hide our insecurities and our shame. We wear faces that aren’t ours and convey personalities other than who we truly are.
The Legend of Zelda is full of messages that are applicable to us all, and when it comes to hiding behind masks, Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask have plenty for us to learn. The Nintendo 64 classics caution us of the dangers that come with hiding our true selves, with the underlying message to just be yourself. -Zelda Informer
