Appearances

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the "Song of Healing" is taught to Link by the Happy Mask Salesman after Link, cursed into the form of a Deku Scrub, retrieves the stolen Ocarina of Time from Skull Kid. The notes of the song heal Link's soul, and the young hero returns to his Hylian form. The Deku Mask then materializes and is kept as a memento of his time as a Deku.[1] Link utilizes the song many times thereafter, as it has the capability of healing a soul and giving peace to those who cannot forget.[2]

Frequently, using the "Song of Healing" on tormented individuals yields a mask. The Goron warrior Darmani and the Zora guitarist Mikau each grant Link the use of their mortal bodies through transformation masks in return for his promise to aid their people. The spirits, finally at ease, depart to the afterlife as Link watches over their graves. The "Song of Healing" is also used to heal Kamaro, a dancer's ghost found in Termina Field, and the researcher in Ikana Valley. It can also be played to repair broken signs.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Wolf Link can howl the "Song of Healing" in Death Mountain to summon the Golden Wolf. Once found, the Hero's Spirit then proceeds to teach Link the Shield Attack.

Spirit Tracks

In Spirit Tracks, the "Song of Healing" is learned at the entrance to the Forest Temple. If it is not learnt there, there are other opportunities at the entrances to some, but not all of the other temples. However, the song itself sounds and functions entirely different. Playing it with the Spirit Flute while in a dungeon causes the Spirit of Healing to appear and heal Link completely. Although it can only be used once per dungeon.[3][4]

Trivia

  • In Majora's Mask, playing the "Song of Healing" for Sharp will have him remark that a song like that has no longer effect on someone like him.[5] Also, if the song is played to the Poe Collector in the Spirit House, he will lower the price from 30 to 10 Rupees while commenting that not all spirits can be healed by that song.[6]
  • The notes in the "Song of Healing" from Majora's Mask are the same as "Saria's Song", except they are reversed.
  • When Link plays the "Song of Healing" in the European version of Spirit Tracks, it says that he played the "Song of Recovery."
