* In a moment that also implements a bit of FridgeBrilliance in an otherwise TearJerker scene: [[spoiler: Despite her best efforts during the ending, all of Zelda's insistence, and the promise of finding a new land to call Hyrule, was for nothing, as the king is simply too distraught over his past failures to let go of his kingdom of old...But then he ''does'' reconsider, albeit briefly, at the mere sight of Link reaching out to him, fighting against the rising current, all without a single word spoken. The relation the two held, their connection to Hyrule, meant nearly nothing to him, but the relationship he'd formed, however subtle, with the klutzy goofball who'd basically stumbled face-first into a heroic destiny, with no notable lineage or experience whatsoever, was enough to make him hesitate.]] Like the above example, this speaks volumes as to the true message of the game - even through the pain of loving something that's long since passed, there's always be something there to make you smile in your future. It's only up to you which one you choose.

* Meta example from the HD version: That fact that people often send Pictographs of [[PermanentlyMissableContent missable characters]] via Tingle Bottle to help others complete their Nintendo Gallery. [[MemeticMutation "Pass it on,"]] indeed.

Added DiffLines:

* Zunari's plotline is a wonderful illustration of the game's overarching theme of "letting go of the past." When he arrives at Windfall, he has only two things of value: his sail, and his Magic Armor, both treasured family heirlooms. He sells the sail to Link, which gives him the money to set up his stall. With Link's help, his business becomes a big success, and eventually he gives his Armor to Link as a token of friendship. It's painful at first, but by giving up the treasures of his past he grows happier than ever, with new friends and a bright new future ahead of him.

Added DiffLines:

** When you arrive on Outset Island intending to obtain Nayru's Pearl, there's also a notable heartwarming moment with the King of Red Lions - after making note of the curse of endless night cast by Ganondorf, he ''insists'' that Link return home to visit his friends and family, and that meeting with Jabun can wait until he's done. Even though he spends the entire adventure up to that point just encouraging Link to achieve the next in-story objective, it shows that he's aware of how this journey might have affected Link, and is willing to put his own interests on hold in order for Link to reunite with his loved ones, however briefly, after such a long time away.

* Honestly, learning that Ganondorf was just a WellIntentionedExtremist who lost his way, only to finally look back and truly feel BAD for all that has happened. He may be evil, he may be the manifestation of Demise's rage and anger, but in the end, his whole reason for doing evil was for the people he had to rule. His final words after going on about how much he hated the wind really just seems to show final, inner peace, Ganondorf now free from all the evil he has done and finally able to rest.

--> Ganondorf: *Has just been stabbed through the forehead. He calmly smiles after a few seconds of Link standing on his head, the Master Sword shoved through him.* Ughnn....Heh heh...The wind...it is blowing... *Turns to stone as Hyrule drowns around him.*
