** Most Zelda games from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures Four Swords Adventures]]'' (i.e. since 2004) onwards haven't received an official soundtrack, save for a few promotional disks with a handful of tracks each. Thus many music themes have been nicknamed by fans. Standout examples would be "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVkJW2zAZwQ Midna's Desperate Hour]]" from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' (which was later on officially titled "Midna's Lament" in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]''), "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N21htq8lXQ Link and Zelda's Duet]]" from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'', and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gqd3oCmFgM Romance]]" from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''.

** Most of the Links have one out of necessity. Usually its an abridgment of their hero titles (fanon or canon) - Wind, Sky, Time, Twilight, etc.

* It was revealed in [[http://www.gamekult.com/actu/miyamoto-la-wii-u-et-le-secret-de-la-triforce-A105550.html an interview Miyamoto gave to a French website]] that Link's appearance was, like Mario before him, influenced by the NES's graphical limitations. Miyamoto wanted Link to be easily recognizable, and able to visibly use his sword and shield. The weapons were thus made big and easily visible, and Link was given his trademark pointy hat and long ears so that he could easily be distinguished from his equipment despite the sprite's small size. The pointy hat and long ears, in turn, reminded Miyamoto and his team of elves, most notably [[Disney/PeterPan Disney's Peter Pan]], hence the decision to color Link's outfit green and make his design more elf-like.

*** His name's also doubly appropriate in a BilingualBonus sense: "Links" is German for "left". In the games that don't have motion controls, he's [[TheSouthpaw left-handed]], plus there's also the "Four Swords" games where he splits into multiple Links.

** From the same interview, it was also revealed that Link's name came from an early idea for the series: the Triforce was meant to be a bunch of electronic chips that the hero would collect by travelling between the future and the past. The hero was named "Link" to symbolize the fact that he was the Link between the time periods. Even though the series ended up taking on a totally different approach, the name "Link" stuck ever since.
