Majora's Mask - inspiration for the Bremen Mask
#1
The Bremen Mask is likely inspired from several things, mostly by the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten (The Bremen Town Musicians); in this tale, 4 animals form a traveling band and encounter thieves whereas in Majora's Mask, Guru-Guru was previously part of an animal troupe and stole the Bremen Mask from the leader.

While wearing the Bremen Mask, Link plays the ocarina and is followed by dogs, the baby Cuccos at Romani Ranch, and Igos du Ikana's servants; this could be inspired by The Pied Piper of Hamelin, another tale, one account by the Brothers Grimm.

Bremen and Hamelin are towns in Germany.

Guru-Guru confesses to Link that he stole the Bremen Mask because he was jealous; this could be reference to Falco Lombardi's jealousy of Star Fox as a second reference to the Star Fox series.
