* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The Forest race went through two iterations before settling on the Koroks. Starting wit the Kokiri who were human children in ''Ocarina,'' to a MonsterTown of Deku Scrub's in ''Majora's Mask'' before finally setting on the wood and leaf Koroks in ''Wind Waker.'' Due to the popularity of ''Breath of the Wild'' they may have earned a place as a recurring race finally.

* DubNameChange: Possibly. The English Super Nintendo instruction booklet for ''A Link to the Past'' notoriously made the claim that he was known as "Ganondorf Dragmire" and was also called by his alias "[[UnfortunateNames Mandrag Ganon]]" (supposedly meaning "Ganon of the Enchanted Thieves"), but this information is simply not present in the [[http://www.zeldalegends.net/files/text/z3translation/z3_manual_story.html Japanese Super Famicom version]] and was subsequently omitted entirely from the Game Boy Advance manual. For 25 years straight, this was '''never''' referenced again in any later game or related material until the name Ganondorf Dragmire suddenly resurfaced in an April 2017 update to [[http://zelda.com/online-guide/ Zelda.com]] -- which, while an official website, has a proven negative track record of including [[http://zelda.gamepedia.com/Community:Zelda.com#Bad_reputation_amongst_fans flat-out erroneous details.]] At best, it is currently WordOfDante as of now.



* RetCanon: In the English guide to ''A Link to the Past'', he was given the last name Dragmire, which was never mentioned anywhere else until 2017, when it was canonized as his last name on [[http://zelda.com/online-guide/ the official website's online guide]].

* KnightInShiningArmor: Oh, ''hell'' yes. ''Twilight Princess'' even gives him magic armor that makes him invincible, but eats his money in exchange. He's also recently taken to wearing chainmail under his tunic.

to:

* KnightInShiningArmor: Oh, ''hell'' yes. He has a very strong knighthood motif, and is explicitly stated to be a literal knight in both ''Skyward Sword'' and ''Breath of the Wild''. Normally, he sets aside the literal shining armor for his iconic green tunic and hat, but he can wear plate in both ''Breath of the Wild'' (in the form of the Soldier's Armor and Ancient Armor) and ''Twilight Princess'' even gives him magic armor that makes him invincible, but eats his money in exchange. He's also recently taken to wearing chainmail under his tunic.(in the form of the Magic Armor).



* DyingRace: In a few games, such as ''Wind Waker'' and ''A Link to the Past'', the Hylians are largely dying out, and Link is among their last remaining descendants.



* OurElvesAreBetter: [[AvertedTrope Notably averted]]. They ''look'' like elves, and in some games they're considered a DyingRace, but they're actually just ordinary humans who happen to have PointyEars.



* PointyEars: Although other races have them too, this has come to be the Hylian's defining trait.

* CheerfulChild: As the Kokiri.



* CreepyChild: The Kokiri are normally [[CheerfulChild the exact opposite of this]], but at the end of the day, they are still TheFairFolk, and in some cases they can get very creepy indeed - such as the way one of them [[DissonantSerenity nonchalantly explains]] how the Lost Woods [[BalefulPolymorph transforms any human who enters it into a]] [[DemBones Stalfos]].



** Even in their original, more humanoid form as the Kokiri, they were very different from "grown-ups".



** In ''Breath of the Wild'', Gorons are actually allowed free access to [[LadyLand Gerudo Town]], something which they themselves find confusing, so at the very least, the Gerudo likely see the Gorons as being asexual rather than male.
