Great Bay is an area in the land of Termina. In The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Link went here to free one of the Four Giants who lived in the Great Bay Temple from evil monsters in order to stop the Moon from crashing into Termina and destroying the world. Great Bay also appeared as a stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee, set upon a pier in the ocean housing a laboratory. The Moon plot of Majora's Mask is referenced as the Moon is shown getting bigger in the background until it almost crashes into the earth. The Four Giants then push the Moon back to its normal orbit. The music in the Great Bay stage is from the original Legend of Zelda, while the alternate track, Saria's Song, is from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Great Bay is surrounded by water, which characters fall through and may get KO'd. There are two platforms next to the main pier, and one of them floats and sinks slightly when stood on. The ancient Turtle floats by the pier, and its shell can be used as a platform. Every once in a while the turtle will go underwater, taking any players who happen to be on it with it. Tingle appears on the pier, floating on a small balloon that can be stood on. The balloon can be popped to send Tingle back to the ground, but it causes some damage if the attacker makes contact. Tingle will quickly make another balloon again. If Tingle falls in the water, he will respawn on the pier after a few minutes.
The unlock match for Young Link takes place here.
The stage returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, despite the series now having a swimming mechanic.
