* HijackedByJesus: Basically the ''Zelda'' equivalent of the Holy Trinity.
* TheOmnipotent: They're not characters as much as they are a concept and they are al-knowing and all-powerful enough to forge an artifact of power that turns its owner into a PhysicalGod. They are likely far, far above beings like Hylia, Majora, the Dragons and Calamity Ganon.




to:

* StoryBreakerPower: If they are even half as powerful as the legend depicting their creation of the Triforce implies, they are far and away too powerful for any other character in the entire series to compare to.

[[folder:Keese]]
!!Keese

Bat-like enemies that have appeared in every game since the original. They reside in dungeons or dark places and tend to swoop down upon Link, but they're usually not much of a threat, even in large numbers. They can come in fire or ice variations; they're still not much more of a threat, but they're bigger nuisances, as they can respectively burn your shield or freeze you solid.

* BanditMook: They don't do any damage when they attack, but they steal your shield when they do. There is a variant known as Rupee Like who, you guessed it, steal your Rupees.
* EvilLawyerJoke: Although not referring to lawyers, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' reveals that Like Likes get their name from an old Hylian proverb: "Shield-eaters and world leaders have many likes alike". [[IceCreamKoan Whatever that means.]]
* PoisonMushroom: Their Rupee Like brethren disguise themselves as Rupees, and suck up Link's own Rupees if you fall for them. There's also Life Likes, which just damage Link but hide as helpful hearts. There's usually an easy way to distinguish them from the real things, though.

Added DiffLines:

* InterspeciesRomance: This is more commonly portrayed with them than with any other race. Ruto made a one-sided ChildhoodMarriagePromise to Link in ''Ocarina of Time'', Beth develops a crush on Prince Ralis in ''Twilight Princess'', and in ''Breath of the Wild'' not only do Mipha and Kodah love Link, he can also act as a RomanticWingman between Kodah's daughter and a Hylian guy.

* LargeAndInCharge: Done more consistently with them than most other races. Aside from the AdiposeRex element mentioned above, other royal characters such as Queen Rutela and Prince Sidon are also noticeably taller and bulkier than other Zora. While Prince Ralis and Princess Mipha are shorter than other Zora, that's mainly because they aren't fully grown.
* LongLived:
** This is first implied in ''Oracle of Ages'', where the Zora King is still around 400 years ago.
** In ''Breath of the Wild'', Zora elders can live for at least 200 years.

* PlanetOfCopyhats: Their cultural and physiological attributes are originally from what little was known about Impa in the earliest games. They're devoted to protecting Zelda and guiding Link because Impa did that as Zelda's maid in the NES game manuals, and they have white hair because she was elderly.

* TookALevelInKindness: In ''Ocarina of Time'' and ''Majora's Mask'' they're a race of warrior thieves feared by the other peoples of the land because of their ferocity and tendency to kidnap people. In ''Four Swords Adventures'', in contrast, they're considerably friendlier with non-Gerudo, if a bit standoffish due to Ganondorf's recent actions. By the time of ''Breath of the Wild'', they're no meaner than any other race, with the [[TeamMom motherly]] Urbosa and WiseBeyondHerYears Riju in particular being two of the nicest characters in the game.
