* The Weird Egg that Malon gives you hatches into a ''chicken''. Considering all other chicken-like fowl in-universe are called cuccos, an egg that hatches into a [[CallASmeerpARabbit chicken]] really is a ''weird'' egg.

* The first three dungeons lead up to the Triforce. First of all, look at the Spiritual Stones. Don't green, red, and blue usually represent courage, power, and wisdom in the series? Heck, look at the dungeons' items. The slingshot represents courage because it charges headfirst without thinking. That's pretty brave if you ask me. The bombs need no explanation, they clearly represents power. The boomerang is wisdom because, instead of charging into situations, it finds new ways around problems and always returns to the thrower. Talk about {{Foreshadowing}}.

** The only catch is that it's described in-game as being a cool flame, so presumably we're dealing with "ice" that's somehow hot.

* Navi's description of the Beamos is very unhelpful. She says, more or less, "I bet it doesn't like smoke to get in its eye!" Beamos can only be killed by bombs. The description was probably intentionally bad and phrased that way as a MythologyGag to the very first game's [[FeedItABomb Dodongo Dislikes Smoke]], which also refers to "smoke" when you're supposed to use bombs.

** [[spoiler: If Link gets paralyzed by a Deku Nut when Sheik throws it, then why is he able to throw a Deku Nut and not get paralyzed? Answer: If you look at the animation of him throwing one, you can see he is covering his eyes when throwing it.]]

* When Link is sealed away for seven years as a child and Ganondorf takes over the world, this would mean by the time of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', Termina is destroyed by the Moon caused by the possessed Skull Kid in that respective game.
** Not quite. The Skull Kid from ''Majora's Mask'' is the very same one that appears in the Lost Woods, even when you're an adult.

* All of Hyrule's water comes from Zora's Fountain. King Zora has the proud distinction of sitting on said water... Combined with Kakariko's "cannibal well," one has to question the cleanliness of Hyrule's waterways.

* Zelda's Lullaby is played [[spoiler: in the ending to send Link back to being a kid. But remember that Zelda talks about "returning to the way you were supposed to be" and such - playing Zelda's Lullaby by a shattered sign restores it to normal, so why can't Zelda's copious magic power do the same for Link himself?]] Talk about hiding your {{Foreshadowing}} well.

* Many a player has got frustrated with Navi's apparently completely useless advice in the Great Deku Tree - "Yes, Navi, we know how to open a damn door!" Except that there aren't any buildings that ''have'' doors in Kokiri Forest... and if Link was left there as an infant, then he's never actually ''seen'' a door before, thus making Navi's advice... completely relevant and useful for him.
* The rating 'E for everyone' is little off since lets be honest, there are things in this game that still can give a grown man a pretty good scare. Then it hit, Link is the holder of the Triforce of Courage, and true courage is only achieved when one conquers his own fears. So for a little kid playing this, he would be scared out his mind while playing this game to such an extent that he doesn't dare to keep playing any more, because [[NightmareFuel/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime it is so freaking scary at some parts]]. But daring to picking up that controller and meeting your fears head on is truly courageous, and makes a worthy holder of the Triforce of Courage.

* The cuccos are obviously chickens by [[CallARabbitASmeerp another name]] and they act like chickens do. It also makes sense that if you attack a cucco enough, that it will eventually start flying erratically and attack you. This game couldn't get away with much and still keep an "E" rating. Link is actually cutting off the heads of the cuccos when they get angry. The game just doesn't show it. In short, [[StealthPun the cuccos are losing their heads.]]
* The "official" timeline released for the series indicates that all the games that were released before Ocarina of Time took place in a timeline where the Hero of Time was defeated by Ganon...but after Ocarina of Time, we have games based on the two timelines where the Hero won the fight. The previous games were based on Link losing the final boss fight because you, the player, weren't there to guide him to victory. Winning the last boss fight in Ocarina of Time is actually the player ''themselves'' being able to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong for the entire series. This makes more sense in the opening cutscene: Link had a dream of Impa riding away from Ganondorf with Zelda. Later on, Zelda thought Link's name sounded familiar. This means, after Link's defeat and Ganon's sealing, Zelda went back in time with the Ocarina of Time to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, but in the process, she may not remember everything due to the Triforce's completion (while she possesses Wisdom, she no longer has its possession). This also means due to Link having the Triforce of Courage, he was able to remember everything when he finally won his final battle with Ganon. This would also explain why Zelda was ProperlyParanoid.

* When Link is an adult, there will be special ice that can only be defrosted with blue fire. This, at first, just seems like an [[TechnicolorFire aesthetic choice]] but it makes sense that this blue fire is the only fire able to defrost that ice, considering blue fire in real life is hotter than red fire. Now Link's method of getting that fire to the special ice is [[FridgeLogic something else entirely]].
* Whenever Link defeats a boss as an adult, he is transported via being encased in a transparent blue gemstone to the Sacred Realm so he can meet with the awakened Sage. Those same blue gemstones were used again by Agahnim to imprison the seven maidens in the Dark World (the corrupted Sacred Realm) in Link to the Past. No doubt he learned to use that same spell, long after the events of [=OoT=] took place.
* The Water Temple has received much criticism from fans claiming it to be confusing. One of the mini-bosses there is Shadow Link. This troper believes Shadow Link is the developers way of saying that we are our own worst enemy. That it is not the dungeon which is hard, but it is our own mental shadow hindering us.

* ark Link doing a BladeWalk on Link's sword should he attempt to crouch-stab. Why counter this one move so specifically? But the FearfulSymmetry page puts the fight with Dark Link... alongside the one from ''Adventure of Link''. It doesn't make sense from a chronological standpoint, but it looks like the game developers caught on to [[GameBreaker the crouch-stab trick]] from Adventure of Link, and explicitly [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything punished any veteran to Zelda who would think to try the same trick again here]].

* Given that they referred to Ganondorf as "great" and there didn't seem to be any particular difference made when to their lives when you clear the Spirit temple, why do the Gerudo celebrate the fall of their king with all the other races? Well it's mentioned by the Gerudo themselves that there were rumors of brainwashing experiments in the Spirit temple which turn out to be true. The problem that was afflicting the Gerudo was a climate of fear, they had to voice their support of Ganondorf, a single word of dissent could mean being dragged off and forcibly converted into a mindless slave (i.e. Iron Knuckles) and would likely never regain their free will like Nabooru did.

* Stay in Hyrule Field during the night, and wherever you go, an infinite amount of Stalchildren start clawing their way out of the ground to attack you. So apparently, most of Hyrule is actually a mass grave where the angry dead are just waiting for a chance to get ahold of anyone wandering around. Worse yet, a mass grave of ''children''. Then you remember there was a civil war just ten years prior...
