** "Ballad of Gales" appears odd considering the confirmed timeline, but is shares much of its melody with the final part of "Minuet of Forest", the warp song of the first adult dungeon, the Forest Temple, and a connection to Link's childhood friend, Saria.

* It's often wondered why Zant's men took the children of Ordon Village away and kept them hostage, as they do not do that to anybody else in Hyrule. It's possible that OoT/MM Link settled down in Ordon Village (where his descendant, TP Link, lives) and that [[spoiler: Ganondorf somehow knew this]], so it was suspected that one of the children might have inherited the Triforce of Courage. This could explain why TP Link was taken to Hyrule Castle instead of staying with the other children (as his... [[BalefulPolymorph unusual reaction]] to the Twilight pretty much gave himself away).

** When Zant [[spoiler: manages to attack you at Lanayru's spring]] and when he assaults Hyrule Castle, he (albeit temporarily) is in the Light. But he's a native Twili, and if going by Midna's reaction to [[spoiler: being exposed to Lanayru's light]] and the fact she remains a shadow [[spoiler: until Zelda grants her the ability to dwell in the Light]] he should probably be in pain, or not even there at least. The thing is [[spoiler: like when Zelda gave Midna her soul/Triforce piece/whatever she did, Zant had received Ganondorf's ability to live in the Light, and thus was able to be in the realm of Light without harm.]]

** Midna being only partially clothed may also be justified by the fact that, when at full power, she wouldn't need to wear any kind of protective armor as she could simply cast a protective spell of sorts.

* The Hylian soldiers in Twilight Princess have an uncharacteristic level of cowardice compared to other Zelda titles. They're easily scared of Wolf Link whenever he's in town, and when a group of them volunteered to escort the civilians to Kakariko village, they ran away the moment Telma mentions that the path would be filled with monsters. But considering what had happened to them up until now, it's not all that surprising:
** Zant's attack on Hyrule castle no doubt killed several soldiers without them barely being able to fight back. With Zelda surrendering to Zant added into the mix, morale would suffer a devastating blow and not likely to recover anytime soon.

* When ascending the tower of Hyrule Castle [[spoiler: to confront Ganondorf]], transforming into Wolf Link allows one to see [[spoiler: the ghosts of dead soldiers]] at a certain point. [[spoiler: These soldiers probably died defending the castle from Ganondorf, and guide the way in hopes of being avenged]].
* After playing through [[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]], the City in the Sky takes on an entirely new perspective. One can only assume its what is left of Skyloft after all these years. The place looks positively futuristic compared to olden times, but in the end, the place is falling apart, and not just because of Argorok. It's really kind of sad in that way.

* Most dungeon bosses have an eye (which may [[EyeDoNotBelongThere not belong where it is]]) that both functions as a weak point and turns into a Heart Container upon the boss's defeat. This may be a Japanese pun: eye = ''ai'' (love). Which comes full circle when you beat Blizzeta and the Heart Container comes from an expression of ''ai''.

Added DiffLines:

* The Gorons in Castle Town charge moderately more for their items than most other shops. The young one on the ground floor says his dad calls it "regional pricing". Makes sense, as the only other shop in the area charges ''thousands'' of Rupees for its goods, and most potential customers don't teleport. (Of course, then they may end up being a casualty of Malo's buyout, as now they have the highest prices anywhere...)

* Each stage of the final boss tests Link in a different way: [[spoiler:for example Beast Ganon tests his beast form against your beast form, Horseback Ganon tests him on horseback with you on Epona, Spirit Ganon tests Midna's spirit form against his and Ganondorf is a final test of your skill as a swordsman. To me, Possessed Zelda is a test against you as a player, as you must use most of your skills to defeat that which you have sworn to protect.]] The analogy (that [[spoiler:Possessed Zelda]] is a test for the player himself) makes even more sense when you consider this: You are essentially "possessing" Link, as a counterpart to [[spoiler:Ganondorf possessing Zelda]].

** Finally the "Twilight Princess Theme", the theme of Link from ''Twilight Princess'', protege of the Hero's Shade. This was probably chosen to represent the new Link's rise to heroism.

* The FinishingBlow is called the Ending Blow because it is the one that is the one that, in a sense, ends the game by finishing off Ganondorf.

* Among the golden bugs you can find there are two snails. If you check their descriptions, it seems Link is not sure which one is the male and which is the female. In real life, most snails are hermaphrodites.

* Remember that fancy store Malo took over in Castle Town? Remember how the doorman wouldn't let you in unless your shoes were clean? Anyone who wanted to go into the shop had to go get their shoes shined by a little boy sitting near the steps for ten rupees. Malo Mart doesn't have the same restriction, meaning nobody ever actually ''needs'' to go get their shoes shined, meaning that boy has probably lost the vast majority of his one small source of revenue.
** It's a little kid with a little pocket change hobby, he probably doesn't need the money to live. Also, with how much Link has done for everyone, it's possible that, off-screen, Link asked around for a job/family for him. Or there's another Malo Mart we never see because both cannons and teleportation are things, and the kid works there. Or he can move to Ordon Village, with fresh water, fish, and pumpkins aplenty.
