** In ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' all the playable characters that aren't legacy characters or original come from the Adult Link games, ''Ocarina of Time'' (original and popular), ''Twilight Princess'' (popular) and ''Skyward Sword'' (modern). There's an entire mode dedicated to the orginal NES ''The Legend of Zelda'' but outside of these four games most other Zelda games are barley referenced. The ''Majora's Mask'' DLC added content including characters from the Dark Horse game.

''The Legend of Zelda'' franchise is, in essence, a mythos in the classical sense of the word: An evil [[SorcerousOverlord wizard]]/king/thief/[[HumanoidAbomination monster]] named [[BigBad Ganon]] (or Ganondorf, but [[FandomBerserkButton not Gannon]]) has cast a great evil over the [[TheKingdom land of Hyrule]], and a young boy in a sort of green PeterPan[=/=]RobinHood costume must save Hyrule by [[PlotCoupon recovering powerful artifacts]] that rest in [[TempleOfDoom places tainted]] [[DungeonCrawling by Ganon]]. [[BadassPrincess Princess Zelda]] is his resourceful and sometimes [[ImpliedLoveInterest secretive love interest]]. He either must [[SaveThePrincess rescue her]] or is guided by her, if not both at once.

* DivineConflict: ''Skyward Sword'''s backstory, between [[GodOfGood Hylia]] and [[GodOfEvil Demise]]. The game itself establishes that the entire series is this, as on his deathbed, Demise curses Hylia's [[GodInHumanForm reincarnation]] Zelda to forever be in conflict with his own reincarnation, Ganon.

** Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild,'' as the entire game is rift with thinly-veiled science-fiction trappings. To wit: the people of Hyrule used their [[ClarkesThirdLaw advanced technology]] to build four HumongousMecha and an [[MechaMooks army of robot drones]] to protect them from an EldritchAbomination. However, before their weapons could be deployed, the enemy used a ComputerVirus to [[ContagiousAI take control of the machines]] and destroy the land. The hero, equipped with a DataPad (complete with blue TronLines), must now go to various locales to [[PowersAsPrograms download maps, data, and apps,]] [[DuelingHackers regain control of the mecha,]] and [[MagicVersusScience defeat the eldritch horror.]] Just give Link a [[BrainUploading neuro-link]] and he can be a Creator/WilliamGibson character.

** It also appears as though all Gorons are male. Every Goron is referred to as a "brother" by each other and so far, no definitely female Gorons have come forth.

* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Skull Kid has shades of this. He was mostly just mischievous before putting on Majora's Mask. Only when the very evil nature of the mask was a factor did his antics go from pulling pranks to tormenting the world and its inhabitants.
