* How about just the fact that the Triforce appears in the first place? Only one other time did the holy relic appear in the entire series (''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast Link to the Past]]''), and that was in 2D and only in the final cutscenes. You enter the battle expecting nothing more than just a fun battle against the King of Evil. Then Ganon takes out Link and, after 400 years, finally realizes the dream that he narrowly missed out on in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', reuniting the Triforce, which floats there, massive and glowing in all its holiness. The Triforce does little more than just float there before Daphnes makes his wish, the sight of the golden relic in all its 3D epicness is breathtaking.

*** What's particularly awesome about this is that, intentional or not, it's a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] of the BadassDecay and {{Chickification}} that Zelda goes through in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time]]''. In that game, after ninja-esque warrior and Link's mysterious ally Sheik is revealed to Zelda, she is kidnapped by Ganondorf and needs rescue from Link. In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker]]'', it appears the same thing happens when then [[spoiler: the tomboyish pirate Tetra]] is revealed to be Princess Zelda. She almost immediately adopts a more docile and polite demeanor, and is kidnapped by Ganon. Then the above happens, in which she becomes not only the first Zelda to play an active combat role in fighting the BigBad alongside the hero, but an equal role as well. SilkHidingSteel indeed...

* The Light Arrows themselves: powerful, beautiful, and reason enough to keep the magic bar topped up. Watching enemies disintegrate is so much fun!

** Zelda gets one in this fight too when she decides that her other incarnations' method of stepping aside and maybe throwing out a spell at a key moment is for chumps. [[ActionGirl So she commandeers Link's bow and starts shooting Light Arrows]].

** Not to mention he jumps ten foot into the air before [[spoiler:sinking the sword into Ganondorf's skull]] and all this happens in a flooding arena. From the unarmed child beating, the unstoppable badassery of Ganondorf's health destroying sword slashes and unbeatable defense, to the insane laughter as he [[spoiler:kneels on the floor, his head now being used as a swordholder]]... the battle is The crowning moment for Link and Ganondorf.

** But it swings back around to awesome when you consider that yes, he treated Link like a child, but he was forced to do so PERSONALLY. Link disabled Ganon's two dragons (Helmaroc King permanently, and Phantom Ganon temporarily.) This nine year old child took out his base of operations, and forced him to deal with him himself, and that is definitely worthy of praise.

* Just before the final battle, Ganondorf has an unconscious Zelda in his grip, and then zooms forward and beats down Link with his ''bare fists'', knocking the Master Sword away, grabbing an utterly helpless Link, and forcing the pieces of the Triforce to unite so he can make his wish. That's not the awesome part. No, the person to get a crowning moment in this scene is [[spoiler:[[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething King Daphnes]], who shows up ''out of freaking nowhere'' and places his hand on the Triforce before Ganondorf can]]. And his wish? [[spoiler:For the old kingdom of Hyrule to be washed away forever, along with Ganondorf. The King is willing to sacrifice his chance to revive his lost Kingdom ''just to deny Ganondorf his prize''.]]
