** That's not even going into the fact that he's already saved a world once, ends up defeating Ganon ''a second time'', then goes on to wake the Wind Fish. This Link has quite the Badass Resume.

* DieChairDie: You can obtain a ring for destroying 100 different signs, which will invariably lead to this. Or maybe this version of Link just has an irrational hatred for signs. Lampshaded by a character in Subrosia ("the sign-loving Subrosian"), who gets pissed off and fakes giving you a Game Over.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: To the point that he can call upon three of his animal friends [[PowerUpMount to help him out]]: Ricky (a BoxingKangaroo--[[KangarooPouchRide who carries Link in his pouch]]--with great jumping and climbing abilities, as well as the power to summon [[BlowYouAway tornadoes]] when his punches were [[ChargedAttack fully charged]]), Moosh (a [[{{Flight}} flying]] blue bear who can help Link cross chasms), and Dimitri (a Dodongo who can bite and eat enemies and helps Link traverse through aquatic areas, notably strong currents and up waterfalls).

* MythologyGag:
** Din, Nayru, and Farore all make an appearance in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap The Minish Cap]]'', where her charm is a combined version of Din and Nayru's at lower potency. Also, it's only possible to aid two of them; the presumed intent of the developers is to leave Farore alone as before. Her trophy also mentions how much it bothers her that people take advantage of her kind nature; her secret linking gives Link great power and lets him fight the TrueFinalBoss, but she gets no exposure or thanks for it.

* ShoutOut: The battle with his OneWingedAngel form is remarkably similar to Sigma's final form in the first ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' game -- he floats in the background and snaps his claws down at you, you ride them up high enough to strike the gem on his head. The game was developed by Creator/{{Capcom}}, so it's not surprising they'd throw in some kind of reference such as this.

* KryptoniteFactor: An unusual case. The Master Sword pieces his defenses to damage him, without it Link must use a SpinAttack. However, this is not because of any story trait attributed to the Master Sword, but due to his weaker swords not having the power to damage Ganon. If Link wears a ring to boost his sword damage, he can hurt Ganon with normal sword attacks.
