* Ironically, the "puzzle solved" sound. It's loud and can make players jump because it sounds out-of-place in a game that otherwise uses more modern video game sounds. It's particularly startling in dungeons, as it runs counter to the eerie calmness of the background sounds and music when there are no enemies around.

* According to Fado, if you get lost in the Lost Woods, you become a Stalfos which is most likely the fate of Grog.

* There's something '''''really''''' creepy about stumbling upon a Peahat in Hyrule Field, [[NothingIsScarier especially when nobody else is around]]. Their appearance is eerily reminiscent of [[Film/{{Alien}} Facehugger Eggs]]. It's even worse when there's more than one Peahat.

** And it is so much worse in the 3DS version. High-quality graphics show realistic yellow-pink blotchy walls, sphincters for doors, and connective tissue in the hallways. Not to mention the disgusting way Barinade dies.

** You're 7-10 and have just bought Ocarina of Time. Ever since your first encounter with the [=ReDeads=], you've been pretty scared but so far, you still press on. Arriving at the Forest Temple, you enter a room and Navi says "Watch for the ''shadows of monsters'' that hang from the ceiling!" You think to yourself, okay sure. Then you see a chest on the wall and go to take a closer look suddenly shivering as an ominous sound suddenly starts up, still not noticing the large shadow below you. Then all of a sudden, a massive hand grabs you and carries you off. All you can do is scream your head off along with Link as you are returned to the entrance of the dungeon (presumably dead) minus one heart. Congratulations! You've just encountered your first Wallmaster! [[SarcasmMode Good luck sleeping after that!]]

** Then if that wasn't bad enough, Volvagia's head crashes right next to Link, wheezes for a few seconds, before finally burning up and leaving a Heart Container behind. The manga adaptation for the game ramps this up to a FridgeHorror by having Volvagia be a dragon Link [[ShootTheDog once had and was forced to slay after Ganondorf turned it into a killer feral beast.]] Those last wheezes are it [[TearJerker mournfully gasping, "Link... Link..."]]
* The Great Deku Tree's death, in which it ''withers.'' Unfortunately toned-down in the 3DS remake.

* Throughout the game's various dungeons, there are treasure chests containing goods to help Link, like a key or some rupees. However, the Spirit Temple has a few chests that once you open them--[[JumpScare POOF!]] [[spoiler: You're trapped in a block of ice for a few seconds while it slowly saps you of your life energy.]] And because it's automatic, you can't prepare for it or avoid it.
* For great measure, there is The Royal Family Tomb. After heading into the graveyard to learn the Sun's Song and get the hookshot from Dampe (whichever you decide to do first), upon entering the crypt, you first have to fight off a slew of Keese, then have to weave around both a team of [=ReDeads=] ''and'' an acidic green pond and learn the song itself in a room filled with skulls and bones of departed royal family members. And since there is only one exit, you have to turn around and face the zombies all over again! Fortunately, the song acts as a tool to freeze them in their place. Also, on both sides of the headstone, there lies the graves of the two composers of the song, the Sun Brothers, but in an [[ContinuityNod eerie nod]] to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', [[spoiler: their Poe-esque ghosts [[JumpScare pop up]] from their respective graves and ''attack you'' if you decide to read their stones! Even worse, due to the improved graphics, they look much scarier than it was in the previous game!]]
* The fight against Dark Link in the Water Temple, or more specifically, what happens after you defeat him. You open the door to find a peaceful, foggy, seemingly outdoors area, that seems to extend endlessly in all directions. Shallow water surrounds a small island with a tree in the center. Upon reaching the tree you fight Dark Link, and after you defeat Dark Link the room with the giant tree in it... vanishes. It's just a normal, empty room with nothing in it. Total MindScrew.

* The various Scrub villains seen throughout the game (Deku, Business and Mad) may startle one due to their appearance and way of attacking; bulb eyes, long trumpet-shaped snouts, shrub-like hair that allows them to hide in the grass, particularly if you get too close and of course those Deku Nuts they shoot at you (although upon defeating the business ones, they'll sell you something to avoid further punishment.) In one corner of The Lost Woods, there's a grotto that's called the "Forest Stage" and which you can wear one of the masks purchased from the Happy Face Salesman to present to the crowd [[spoiler: of Deku Scrubs to get a luck-based reaction out of them.]] The best case scenarios will net you Rupees and an opportunity to carry more Deku Nuts. The worse case scenario? [[spoiler: They'll get angry and mercilessly attack you until you either are killed or leave the area completely.]]
* Wolfos. [[JumpScare They pop up from nowhere- NOWHERE!]]-, have a unexpected loud howl, and are fearfully werewolf-looking with their huge teeth-filled jaws and huge, glowing eyes. Especially frightening the first time you play the game and encounter the first one, at the start of the Sacred Forest Meadow. Soon, you learn that they shows up in forest-themed areas, and after you've beaten the Forest Temple, you are glad that you won't encounter them anymore. But much later in the game, you explore the Spirit Temple, and...AWWOOOOOOOOO!!!
** There's also the one from the Ice Cavern, which serves as the mini-boss/final boss. Oh, sure he's just as easy to defeat as his brothers, but which instead of being a grey werewolf, it's all white, ''much'' bigger and has [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes.]] Their only other appearance is the Gerudo Training Ground where you have to fight a pair them ''and'' a pair of regular Wolfos.

* The Lake Hylia Laboratory seems like a normal lab at first. On closer inspection, we see that the Professor's specimens and other animals are this due to both UncannyValley and SpecialEffectFailure of the crab on his shelf, the giant squid in a tank next to the entrance and a great white shark residing at the bottom of the pool in the lab (even if it is behind a cage with bars). The 3DS re-release takes it UpToEleven by making the shark look more realistic and replaces the giant squid with a (possibly dead or otherwise pickled) [[spoiler:Octorok.]]
