In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Young Link can visit the Happy Mask Shop in Hyrule Castle Town and borrow the Keaton's Mask. To sell it, he shows it to the guard standing in front of the path to Death Mountain. The guard says that Keaton is a “popular character” and that all of his son's friends have a Keaton mask, and that his son wants one as well.
A lot of early media mistook this mask to be a reference to Pikachu.
In The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, the Keaton makes a larger role. The Keaton appears when Link wears the Keaton’s Mask while near a circle of moving bushes. After the bushes are gone, the Keaton will spin out of the ground poised to ask Link its questions. If he answers the Keaton's questions correctly, it will give him either a Piece of Heart. or a red Rupee (worth twenty Rupees).

Another kind of keaton who appears is the theif, probably based on the transformed states of theives in Dark World in Link to the Past. They wield swords and bear an “X” on the heads and come in two colors: red and white. They dash at Link when they spot him, and makes him lose both health and Rupees on impact. These Keatons are underdeveloped (noted by the single tail) and under the influence of Vaati's dark magic.
