Majora’s Mask 3D optimal equipment guide

This is a no-nonsense, mobile-friendly guide for getting everything as soon as possible and in an efficient order. For description, more guides and feedback, see The Legend of Zelda optimal equipment guides.

This is the 3DS guide. There is a separate Nintendo 64 guide. This guide maintains a natural playthrough order, but everything will be mentioned at the earliest possible moment you can get it. Due to the whole game essentially being timed, you might not be able to follow this guide’s order completely. (The order is somewhat optimized, though not particularly stressful to experienced players.) Items limited by specific times will be labelled e.g. D1 (first day), N12 (first or second nights), or D (any day), so that you can skip a bit back and forth to get time-limited items if you have to. Trading items (which are not permanent) will not be shown in summaries after each game segment.
