Cost(s) 30 Rupees

The Spooky Mask[1] is a mask found in Ocarina of Time from the Happy Mask Shop. It is the third mask sold, after the Keaton Mask and Skull Mask. In order to progress the trading sequence, the Spooky Mask is sold to Dampé's admiring fan, a young boy, at the Kakariko Graveyard. The boy will mistake the masquerading Link for Dampé.[2] After realizing it was just a mask, the boy will buy it for 30 rupees, the same amount that Link paid.[3] After selling the Spooky Mask, Link can return to the Happy Mask Shop and receive the Bunny Hood.

Like all masks, the Spooky Mask can be worn by Link to receive new messages from people, notably by scaring them. It also possesses the unique side-effect of glowing in the dark at night. If Link talks to the scientist at the Lakeside Laboratory while wearing the mask, he will tell Link that it was carved from wood taken from a coffin.[4] Dampé, meanwhile, will ask Link if he knows what kind of mask it is, and why he is still wearing it if he does.[5]

ReDeads have a mask on their faces that is almost identical to the Spooky Mask. This information and the information learned in the Lake Hylia Laboratory have led to theories that the Spooky Mask is a burial mask.
