The Bunny Hood debuted in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as a collectible mask. One of the side missions in the game required Young Link to sell various masks to the citizens of Hyrule. Young Link found the Running Man in Hyrule Field and sold the Bunny Hood to him. In exchange, the running man paid him the maximum amount of Rupees that Young Link's wallet could hold. Once Young Link sold the Bunny Hood, he was able to borrow it from the Happy Mask Salesman at anytime. The Bunny Hood returns as a collectible mask in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. In this game, Young Link can collect the Bunny Hood from Grog. When wearing the Bunny Hood in this game, Young Link's speed and jumping distance increases, whereas it had no effect in Ocarina of Time.

Headgear that hugely improves your jump and movement abilities. True to its name, the hood comes with a pair of cute, fuzzy ears. On the right characters, they're as cute as can be, but on the wrong ones, they're...scary. Of course, that adds to the item's charm. The sudden speed increase you get is responsible for more than a few self-destructs, so be careful.
