* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: The end of Shotaro Ishinomori's version of ''A Link to the Past'' is has a rather grim tone compared to the otherwise happy ending of the original game it was based on. Link and Zelda defeat Ganon, but Roam is dead, unlike in the game Link's uncle is not resurrected, Link is permanently separated from his friends in the Dark World, and Link and Zelda are separated in the ending due to their conflicting duties with Zelda expressing feelings of loneliness.]]

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/41lhruvcil.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:250:[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tankōbon#Kanzenban Kanzenban]] edition cover featuring both volumes.]]

* ABoyAndHisX: X being a horse; Link and Epona.
* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:In the game, Volvagia was an ancient beast that devoured Gorons, Ganondorf had resurrected it to use their extinction as an example of those who defy him. Volvagia in the manga was Link's pet dragon, and rather cute and friendly, and only tried to kill him because he was BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Unlike the game, Sheik is a double agent working for Ganondorf. [[spoiler:This is subverted in the end, as Sheik was Zelda in disguise simply swearing loyalty to throw off suspicion.]]
** Due to more information regarding him revealed AFTER this manga was released, Ganondorf is depicted how he was before games like ''The Wind Waker'' and ''Skyward Sword'' gave him a FreudianExcuse and being a TragicVillain, a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]] [[AGodAmI with delusions of grandeur]]. Even with just ''Ocarina of Time'' in mind, Ganondorf's actions are amped up in terms of cruelty as the manga gave tragic backstories to monsters like Volvagia where none exist in the game.
* AdaptationalWimp: Zelda unfortunately gets hit with this, despite her own achievements in the game ([[DistressedDamsel even with its flaws]]). To compare, In the game [[TheSlowPath she manages to survive all those seven years of hardship]] ''by herself'', with the help of Impa, who must have taught her to defend herself, and that's something that ''took'' guts. What does she do in the manga, instead? [[spoiler:She opts to skip all those seven years by letting Impa put her to sleep, allowing a ''male'' mind to do all the hard work for her in her body, instead, in the identity of Sheik]]. In other words, she takes the easy way out, depriving her of any form of character development in the process.
* AdaptationInducedPlothole: The manga skips the Temple of Shadows, meaning that we see Link collecting only five medallions... but when he haves to break the barrier around Hyrule Castle, the sixth medallion appears out of nowhere, along with Impa in the group shot with the other sages.
* AdaptedOut: Bongo Bongo, due to the Shadow Temple being [[AdaptationInducedPlothole mysteriously skipped]].
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Epona behaves much like a dog in this manga.
* BadFuture: A key plot point in the ''Ocarina of Time'' manga, just like in the game.
* {{Bishonen}}: Adult Link is depicted as this in the second volume of ''Ocarina of Time''.
* {{Brainwashed}}: [[spoiler:Zelda, by Impa, to become Sheik, on her own request]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Volvagia]], compared to his canon game version where he was always evil.
** The Gerudo tribe was shown to be brainwashed heavily late in the manga along with Nabooru, to which the original game only subtly hinted at with the former.
** Ingo suffered this as a punishment for losing Epona, whom he had been planning to give to Ganondorf. His original punishment was [[YouHaveFailedMe execution]].
* CallForward: Although not in the Japanese version but rather in the English release, the Stalfos that Link encounters in Hyrule Castle Town as both a child and an adult is named [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Stallord]].
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] with Unlucky Malon. Though at first, she refuses Link's rescue in favor of waiting for her idealized "Prince on a White Horse", throughout the rescue begins to wonder if Link is her prince. [[ShipTease Just as she begins to consider romance with Link]], Zelda is brought up, and Link's reaction makes it clear that his heart is set on Zelda. Instead of moping about it, she gives up on that train of thought and carries on with her life.
* ContinuitySnarl: Despite Zelda explaining that [[spoiler:she was voluntarily put to sleep during all those seven years, the manga still passes it off as if she did it all by herself]].
* DyingAsYourself: [[spoiler:Volvagia, in one of the manga's biggest TearJerker moments.]]
* EnigmaticMinion: Sheik.
* EvilTwin: Dark Link (obviously).
** The Deku Tree gets his own evil counterpart, the Baga Tree, in a bonus story.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Link's fight against Volvagia is presented as this. [[spoiler: It only regains its memories after Link injures it fatally. And by "fatally" we mean ''cutting its head off''.]]
* LogicalWeakness: Dark Link can copy any technique Link has used in the past, but can't account for attacks that Link has seen but not performed. Link is able to bisect Dark Link by copying Impa's flip attack.
* OffWithHisHead: How Link kills [[spoiler: Volvagia]].
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Dark Link can turn his lower body into a copy of Epona.
* RememberTheNewGuy: [[spoiler: Right after Volvagia is introduced, we have a flashback to Link's childhood, when we saw Link buying a newborn Volvagia from Hyrule Market and keeping it as a pet before he picked up the Master Sword, even though it wasn't present in that segment.]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[AvertedTrope Sadly averted]] with Zelda for most of the story, [[spoiler:because instead of being able to help Link by herself as Sheik like she did in the game, she was put to sleep by Impa the entire time, while a male personality did all the work for her in her body as Sheik.]]
* SailorsPonytail: This adaption gives Adult Link one, which he hides under his cap most of the time.
* ShipTease: Link with just about every main female character in his age group: Saria, Zelda, Malon, [[InterspeciesRomance Ruto]] (although he does seem to be leaning towards Zelda). {{Lampshaded}} by Navi:
-->Navi:"You sure are popular with the ladies. That's the third pretty young girl you've got!"
** Even Navi herself got some with him. Her last line is different from the games a bit and seems to portray attraction, which is [[WordOfGod canon in the games]].
* ShootTheDog: [[spoiler:Link's fight with Volvagia is this, due to the dragon being changed to have been a former childhood pet of Link's before being brainwashed by Ganondorf.]]
* ShoulderSizedDragon: Baby Volvagia in flashbacks.
* TapOnTheHead: Sheik knocks Link out and throws him in a gerudo cell.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler:Volvagia]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Inverted, the manga provides an explanation to what happened to the Fairy Ocarina that Saria gives Link, compare with in the game where it just disappears after he gets the titular item. After Zelda tosses Link the Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf attacks Link and attempts to take it from him. However, he grabs the Fairy Ocarina by mistake assuming its the Ocarina of Time and smashes it in rage when he realizes it's the wrong one.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Ganondorf was planning to have Ingo executed for letting Epona escape with Link. Subverted, as Koume and Kotake decided to do something ''[[BrainwashedAndCrazy far worse]]'' to Ingo.
* YouKilledMyFather: The manga makes the implications that is from the original game that Ganondorf murdered Zelda's father during the raid a bit more blatant, where he tells Zelda, upon confronting her in a burning Hyrule Castle that she "will sleep in eternity with her father in this burning castle."

** On the way up to Death Mountain, Link doesn't return to Ordon Village to pick up sumo wrestling lessons from Mayor Bo, as Midna helps out Link during his sumo match against Gor Coron. Link also doesn't pick up the Iron Boots as well, relying solely on the Hero's Bow and arrows provided by Luda that originally belonged to Renado, instead of Dangoro allowing Link access to the bow, to defeat Fyrus.

* {{Expy}}: This version of the ''A Link to the Past'' manga features a knight character named Roam who is basically a Hylian version of [[Manga/Cyborg009 Jet Link]]. Fitting, as this series was drawn by [[SuperSentai Shotaro]] [[KamenRider Ishinomori]].
