* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9lu1V5Wc-0 Light World dungeon music]] starts with a haunting figure in lower strings before giving way to an insistent rhythm in the upper strings, just perfect for trekking into an unfamiliar dungeon. The track got [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuJuDQTC6Ck an awesome violin and piano remix]] for the ''Zelda''-centered DLC in ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OLiPELU1hI This]] little ditty plays at the title as the Triforce came together. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYVygShDvcs#t=1m38s Ocarina of Time]]'' uses it in a more subtle choral form for the moment when the Triforce was created AND the moment when the Sages help Link enter Ganon's Castle. ''Wind Waker'' uses it when a certain princess key to the Triforce is revealed.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uR7doemZD0 Hyrule Castle]], which eventually became one of ''Zelda'''s {{recurring riff}}s.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcT66-1ov1U opening demo]] is the song that DEFINES [=LttP=]. The melancholy feel of it foreshadows the mood of the game ''perfectly.''
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBuBd_7jbYA File Select theme]] became a recurring track for file select screens, its haunting, almost sombre beauty reeling the player into the game before it even begins properly.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uR7doemZD0 Hyrule Castle]], which eventually became one of ''Zelda'''s {{recurring riff}}s. From the opening cymbal crash, to the swooping string figure backed by percussive trumpets and drums, to a climax that brings the strings and brass together before the energy ebbs and the melody moves to the lower strings, every note practically screams, "Hurry, Link! Only you can save Zelda now!"

* The ethereal, string-led [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sx6L5b-ACVk Lost Woods]] theme is perfect for the mysterious, fog-enclosed forest, and may make you wish you didn't have to draw the Master Sword, because after that point, this song is gone forever.



* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5YmTfIEhag Boss Clear Fanfare]]. Nothing says complete victory like this song, specially when you kill the final boss to get the Master Sword or free Zelda to break into Ganon's tower.
