"I... I shall consume. Consume... Consume everything..
The Moon was directed on a collision course with Termina in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask by the Skull Kid - aided by the powers of Majora's Mask. Within the timespace of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Link has 3 days in which to save the world from the impending doom; at 6am on the fourth day the moon crashes into Termina; specifically Clock Town. Link employs the Ocarina of Time to cause a Time Loop which only he is conscious of (and is able to bring items without consumables through).
The astronomer Shikashi has been in awe of the moon since he was a child and advises Link that it has long been considered a mythical body which was both worshipped and feared by the people.
Link frees the Four Giants from their dungeons and summons them at the top of Clock Tower by playing the "Oath to Order". The giants appear and hold up the moon to prevent the destruction of Termina. Majora's Mask casts aside the Skull Kid and flies up to the moon, taking direct control and pushes the moon harder towards a collision course. Link inevitably follows the mask to the moon and is victorious in saving Termina by beating Majora.
