** Use Magic Powder on the Cucco hiding in a pot in the house of the white-haired woman that sics a guard onto you in Kakariko. Said [[HumanityEnsues former]] chicken is ''not'' amused, and tells you so herself.

** Due to a misprint in the instruction manual, some fans were led to believe that there was an upgrade to the bow called the "silver bow". This wasn't helped by a unique enemy, Octoballoon, being situated over a bow-shaped patch of dirt.

* MissingSecret: A cave in dark Death Mountain has a screen of narrow pathways in a cross pattern, with two clear exits South and West, and two "bombable wall" tiles North and East. The North passage doesn't lead to much, just some fairies in a pond. The East passage, however, cannot be broken down by any means and doesn't lead anywhere. While not the only case of this happening in the game, other instances are more clearly meant for decoration. Here, the narrow hallway and similarity to other paths in the room strongly suggest it *is* supposed to lead to something.

* CanonImmigrant: The Mirror Shield, as a physical object. The concept existed in [[ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II]] with the Reflect spell, but multiple media associated with it were(understandably) squeamish about depicting Link's Magical Shield with a crucifix on it, and changed it to a triangular shield with a completely flat, already mirrored surface. This kind of shield would go on to become an actual object in the series, starting with this game.

* BladderOfSteel: Admittedly not as bad as some other examples of the trope. But if you want to have a file with "000" for the "Total Games" count, you'd better have a few hours of time set aside. Dying and saving; saving and quitting both increase the count.
** The UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole version makes this task much easier, thanks to save states whenever you quit out of the game using the UsefulNotes/NintendoWii's Home button.
** It's completely fixed in the GBA version. In that version only dying raises the count.

* EarlyGameHell: You only start with three hearts at the start of the game, and there are a scant amount of Heart Pieces you can go out and obtain. Hyrule Castle and the Eastern Palace aren't particularly hard, but after that, there are a surprising amount of enemies that do a whole ''two'' hearts worth of damage. It can be stressful until you've gotten to the Dark World and likely have received much more Heart Containers.

** You can also take the aforementioned talking fish to the Bottle Seller, who will reward you handsomely for bringing him something that he's heard is "brain food."
