The Ikana River flowing from the Spring Water Cave
|Related place(s)||Ikana Canyon, Spring Water Cave|
The Ikana River can be found in Ikana Canyon of Majora's Mask. It became bone-dry after Skull Kid convinced the Composer Brother Sharp that only the dead could reign within Ikana Kingdom. Sharp banished all living things with his Melody of Darkness, destroying Ikana's only water source and raising the Gibdos from their graves. Pamela and her father lived in the Music Box House at the time and were caught in the middle. Despite Pamela's fear, her father instantly became dazzled by the Gibdos and started to research. But one day it went too far, and he was turned into a Gibdo himself, shattering the source to repel the Gibdos. Until Link could ease Sharp's soul and get the Ikana River flowing, Ikana Valley would become a barren wasteland.
There is a river outlet at the bottom of the canyon that forms a waterfall into the Southern Swamp.
