The new episode of Game Theory, that suggests Majora's Mask is Link going through Purgatory, coping with his death (after falling into a very deep pit, chasing Skull Kid in the Lost Woods in the beginning).

All 5 of the games locations could represent the 5 stages of death.

Clock Town represents Denial - All the townsfolk refuse to believe the moon is falling, and are even preparing for a festival.

The Forest (can't remember name) represents Anger - The Deku King is furious that he can't find his son, and in blind outrage, lashes out at an innocent monkey.

Snowhead Mountain represents Bargaining - The ghost of the old Goron leader literally is trying to bargain with you, hoping you can revive him from the dead. When that fails...

Great Bay represents Depression - You have to help a Zora who has lost her eggs. She's so depressed, she emotionally closes herself from contact & stays in one place.

Ikana Valley represents Acceptance - It's literally a land of the dead (signaling you accept it?), and you help a dead composer come to terms with how he wronged his brother. Finally, link climbs the Stone Tower to acquire the Light Arrows (signifying he has ascended to enlightenment).

Of course, there are other clues that lend to this theory.

  • Termina sounds a lot like Terminal or Terminate (both signify death or destruction).
  • Link sees an array of colorful lights as he falls "into" Termina (Images flying through your mind when you're about to die).
  • Everyone Link meets has a "counterpart" in Hyrule. While there is a technical reason for this, it can also mean Link is seeing the faces of the people he once knew.
  • When you first arrive in Termina, the Mask Salesman says "It seems you've met a terrible fate". While he may be referring to your state as a Deku Scrub, it seems odd they would choose to repeat this line (with the Mask Salesman's laugh) everytime you let the moon fall. Suggesting the line has a more grave meaning behind it.
  • Most shocking, is that Twilight Princess, the next game in that timeline, has clues to back this up. You learn all of your sword moves from a left handed Stalfos which the Hystoria confirms is the spirit of the Hero of Time. He's riddled with grief that he was never able to pass down his technique during life (suggesting maybe he died prematurely?). Also, as he's presented as a Stalfos, it would suggest he died in the Lost Woods, the place where link "warps" to Termina in MM (in OoT it's mentioned Stalfos are what become of people who are lost in the Lost Woods).

There are other clues they mention as well, so you may want to watch (or not). It really goes in deep.

@RR529: It really makes the game seem... really dark. And really philosophical... I dunno if that's what they were going for... but cool anyway! :D

The Lion-Eating Poem in the Stone:

《施氏食獅史》

石室詩士施氏,嗜獅,誓食十獅。
氏時時適市視獅。
十時,適十獅適市。
是時,適施氏適市。
氏視是十獅,恃矢勢,使是十獅逝世。
氏拾是十獅屍,適石室。
石室濕,氏使侍拭石室。
石室拭,氏始試食是十獅。
食時,始識是十獅屍,實十石獅屍。
試釋是事。

Written in Pinyin, it looks like this:

« Shī Shì shí shī shǐ »

Shíshì shīshì Shī Shì, shì shī, shì shí shí shī.
Shì shíshí shì shì shì shī.
Shí shí, shì shí shī shì shì.
Shì shí, shì Shī Shì shì shì.
Shì shì shì shí shī, shì shǐ shì, shǐ shì shí shī shìshì.
Shì shí shì shí shī shī, shì shíshì.
Shíshì shī, Shì shǐ shì shì shíshì.
Shíshì shì, Shì shǐ shì shí shì shí shī.
Shí shí, shǐ shí shì shí shī shī, shí shí shí shī shī.
Shì shì shì shì.

It translates to this:

« Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den »

In a stone den was a poet called Shi, who was a lion addict, and had resolved to eat ten lions.
He often went to the market to look for lions.
At ten o'clock, ten lions had just arrived at the market.
At that time, Shi had just arrived at the market.
He saw those ten lions, and using his trusty arrows, caused the ten lions to die.
He brought the corpses of the ten lions to the stone den.
The stone den was damp. He asked his servants to wipe it.
After the stone den was wiped, he tried to eat those ten lions.
When he ate, he realized that these ten lions were in fact ten stone lion corpses.
Try to explain this matter.

I know Mandarin is a tonal language, but the fact that this is possible.

@SomeBittripFan That is totally mindblowing :o

The only thing is that it uses some obsolete words and the grammar is a little weird, but it's still amazing how coherent it could be. I wonder if that's also possible with some other sound...
