** In ''Blood and Spirit'' chapter 17, Terminus emits a holy light that causes the Interlopers pursuing Zelda pain, forcing them to retreat.
** In ''Wisdom and Courage'', Zelda's Light Arrows, while they can't actually kill her, cause Veran ''horrible'' pain, and during the final battle, the holy glow emitted by the Master Sword actually hurts her.

* The first story (second chronologically), ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8664013/1/Wisdom-and-Courage Wisdom and Courage]]'', is set seven years after ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' in the "Child" timeline. Link and Zelda have become nigh-inseparable friends in the seven years hence, but these peaceful times are ultimately ended by the entrance of Veran, the Sorceress of Shadow (''not'' the same villain from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleOfAges'').
* The second story (first chronologically), ''[[http://http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9474719/1/Blood-and-Spirit Blood and Spirit]]'', is set shortly after the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''. Living peacefully on the surface and watching over the Triforce, Link and Zelda are called to the AlternateReality of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Termina]] by its designated deity, Terminus, who also happens to be [[spoiler: Zelda/Hylia's fraternal twin sister]], to help her deal with the demon Majora and its servant, the Fierce Deity. Unfortunately, Link is injured by the Fierce Deity and filled with Majora's corruption, and the situation is only made even worse when a group of rogue Sheikah, traitorous to Hylia, rise up to take the Triforce for themselves.

to:

* CanonForeigner: Terminus, Veress, Verona, the Sheik of ''Blood and Spirit''... the list goes on.



* DarkestHour: The trilogy as a whole has quite a few of these, but their main ones include:
** ''Blood and Spirit'': [[spoiler: The first half of chapter 34, in which Link has just been completely corrupted by Majora, Zelda is an [[HeroicBSOD emotional wreck]], Sheik is getting battered by Veress, and Terminus's seal on the Triforce is weakening. Also, the beginning of the very next chapter, in which both [[TheHeroDies Link and Zelda have been killed]] also counts.]]
** ''Wisdom and Courage'': [[spoiler: Chapter 33, in which Veran gives Link a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, ultimately prompting the near-broken hero to put the Fierce Deity's Mask on and fall into her control, all while thinking Zelda is dead.]]



** ''Blood and Spirit'' details how Hyrule was founded [[spoiler: by Link and Zelda]].
** According to ''Light and Shadow'', Midna (as well as Verona) are both descendants of the Veran of ''Wisdom and Courage''.



* OrnamentalWeapon: Both the Master Sword and the Bow of Light.



* WhamLine: The trilogy has quite a few of these:
** The establishment of a major recurring theme in the entire trilogy from chapter 22 of Wisdom and Courage:
--> '''Sage of Forest''': The one of the Blood of the Goddess and the one of the Spirit of the Hero... only these two can bring your reign to an end...
** And later on in that chapter, when Veran discovers who these two are:
--> '''Veran''': And if that's the case, then the one of the Blood of the Goddess is the only remaining member of the royal family... Princess Zelda!
** And:
--> '''Sage of Water''': The Hero of Time is the final descendant of the Hylian knights and the goddess's hero: the last link in the bloodline.
--> '''Veran''': Link... But... that's impossible! That foolish boy, he... he... Fine! It doesn't matter either! I will find them and kill them both! Then nothing will stand in my way...
** When the sages tell Link about the only thing that can effectively destroy Veran forever in chapter 23, setting up for a huge plot-point to come into play later on:
--> '''Sage of Water''': It is not of this land... But of a world parallel to Hyrule, the land of Termina. It is the spirit of the Fierce Deity...
** A big one during Veran's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Link in chapter 33:
--> '''Veran''': But even so, everyone has a breaking point. And... I believe you just reached yours...
** The seemingly SadisticChoice the goddesses offer to Zelda in that same chapter:
--> '''Din''': You may choose the restoration of your kingdom or your hero. One or the other. You may not have both.
** In chapter 5 of ''Blood and Spirit'', when Terminus reveals something to Link that will become detrimental to the story later on:
--> '''Terminus''': Majora has found a better vessel to house its powers in... You...
** In chapter 14, when Sheik and Veress's relationship to each other is revealed:
--> '''Sheik''': I... I lost... my best friend... Veress...
** When Terminus tells Zelda about Link's corruption in chapter 17:
--> '''Terminus''': What I mean is that because of the wound that he received fighting the Fierce Deity, Link is slowly but surely being corrupted by Majora, just as my hero was...
** When Hylia begins the {{Reincarnation}} cycle of all of the Links and Zeldas in Zelda's flashback dream in chapter 18:
--> '''Hylia''': Whenever this land is in danger... We shall be reborn...
** The HUGE one that ends chapter 21:
--> [[spoiler: '''Fi''': Master Link... he... he is... he is dead...]]
** When Majora reveals to Link that it has granted him ResurrectiveImmortality as part of his corruption in chapter 22:
--> '''Majora''': Take solace in the fact that no matter how many times you fall, I will bring you back, again and again, until your spirit is finally mine of all time...
** Veress's "proposition" to Link in chapter 22:
--> '''Veress''': All you need to do is one little thing... Give yourself to us...

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Chapter 34 depicts Link on the receiving end of a particularly ''savage'' one at the hands of Veran, who dishes it out partially in an attempt to [[DespairEventHorizon break his spirit]] and partially just because [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming she wants to hear him scream]]. [[spoiler: After knocking the Master Sword out of his hands, Veran first activates the {{curse}} she earlier cast on Link to incapacitate him with pain, then slices him to ribbons with a sword, doing such things as stabbing him in the leg so deep that the blade actually hits his thigh bone, and finally going so far as to ''[[EyeScream cut out his right eye with a dagger]]''. She's only stopped from going any further than that by Zelda shooting her InTheBack with a Light Arrow, and by that point, Link is [[BloodFromTheMouth puking blood]] and literally ''[[AintTooProudToBeg begging]]'' [[AintTooProudToBeg Veran to stop]]]].
