* 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.

* GodIsInept: [[spoiler:Hylia's plan was to become human so she could use the Triforce to truly defeat Demise, because gods are unable to use the Triforce. So she becomes Zelda and also becomes incredibly weak, nearly helpless, even with a strong guardian in Impa. So she has Link carry on her Triforce plan since she is no longer able to and wishes to strengthen the seal on Demise by entering a deep sleep]].

** The Hylian Royal Guards may very well be one of the worst military forces in this world or any other, at least when Link is around. When they're not being slaughtered in droves by whichever villain the game features, they're either standing around, walking back and forth in pointless patrols, or brainwashed and attacking Link (in which case it's ''Link'' who slaughters them in droves). They have lost every war they have ever fought, and [[StealthMission breaking into and out of]] their [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy "heavily"-guarded]] fortresses is a frequent early-game challenge for child Links. Their ''best'' contributions consist of them acting as meat shields, or getting [[CurbstompBattle slaughtered to a man]] just to delay Ganon's army and buy the sages, gods, or Royal Family a little more time. Their supposed leader, Princess Zelda, by contrast, seems to have gotten more powerful over the course of the series. This eventually leads up to situations like the ones in ''Spirit Tracks'' and ''Twilight Princess'', in which Zelda is a potent sorceress and archer while the guards are incompetent morons whose uselessness is repeatedly lampshaded.

* ColorCodedItemTiers: Rupees, though higher colors tend to vary; the most consistent value is Green=1, Blue=5, and Red=20. Purple is always among the higher values, being worth 50 green Rupees whenever it appears.

** ''The Legend of Zelda: Literature/HyruleHistoria'', a 25th anniversary book that is part ConceptArtGallery and part UniverseCompendium that notably gave an [[WordOfGod official]] [[AllThereInTheManual answer]] to the long-debated timeline ContinuitySnarl.[[note]]Per [[http://www.hyrulehistoria.com/information/ HyruleHistoria.com]], "Though ''Hyrule Historia'' provided the fans with an official timeline, the creators mention that various details had to be overlooked and that [[MST3KMantra fans should just enjoy the series and the new timeline]]. It is said that the order of events and the details within the timeline change according to who is weaving the tales, and additionally, history is still being spun. Therefore, it may be safe to assume that, years down the road, various aspects of ''Hyrule Historia'' may become obsolete as new information could take its place."[[/note]] The book was authored by Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto and Eiji Aonuma.
