* The ''Hyrule Encyclopedia'' states that all of Termina [[spoiler:is a figment of Skull Kid's imagination, made real by Majora's Mask, and disappears at the end of the game once Link leaves Termina.]] However, that is not where the horror lies, but with the truth that also highlights its brilliance. If you are unable to stop the Moon from crashing on the Third Day (and don't rewind time), the cut-scene of the Moon crashing into Termina plays out. What is the only thing implied to be left, after its destruction? '''Majora's Mask without its wearer.''' In other words, when Termina is destroyed, Majora ''destroys the Skull Kid's mind and body along with it''. In other words, while Termina does disappear, regardless of the ending, the actual game is about saving the Skull Kid from being ''consumed by Majora''.
** This troper is confused - where is it ever suggested that Majora's Mask survives the world's destruction?
** After the moon falls and Termina is engulfed in flames, Majora is seen on a black background, floating away from the screen and into the darkness seemingly unharmed. This implies that it could have survived.

**Also Link can't possibly save everyone or resolve every single sidequest in any single loop, even if he does so collectively across multiple loops. Until the end of the game, he has to live through each cycle and decide who to help and who to abandon until the next. And even after finishing the game, some creatures (possibly including the Deku Butler's son) ultimately can never be saved in the end.

** Or worse, what if her father managed to curse his daughter into a Gibdo also? We don't know how exactly he was cursed into a Gibdo.

** This gets a further subtle CallBack in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'', where the Lorulean counterparts to the Hyruleans are typically differentiated by having purple hair and red eyes.

* The five areas outside Clock Town each feature a father-and-child duo who hold some importance to Link's endeavors: in Southern Swamp, the Deku King's actions toward the imprisoned monkey stem from his worry for his missing daughter; in Snowhead, the Goron elder teaches Link the Goron Lullaby as a means of calming his crying son, who misses him; Cremia reminisces about how she inherited the ranch from her late father, while Romani's and her mother is never mentioned; Mikau in Great Bay gave his life to save Lulu's seven Zora eggs, which the game implies were also his; and Ikana houses a young girl trying to keep her mummified father safe from monsters. Each of these shows of fatherhood likely holds significance to the main protagonist and probably hits him harder than anything else he comes across on his adventure - while Link at least discovered the fate of his mother in ''Ocarina of Time'', who died trying to protect him from war, [[DisappearedDad he never even knew his father.]]
