* GlassCannon: Red Wizzrobes' spells deal twice as much damage as that of Blue Wizzrobes, but take less hits to kill and have movement patterns that leave them more vulnerable.



* HardLevelsEasyBosses: Barring the {{Breather Boss}}es, the bosses of this game are no slouch when it comes to difficulty, especially in comparison to other ''Zelda'' titles. However, the most difficult moments are dealing with the DemonicSpiders that crowd areas, corner the player, and work alongside other enemy types to cover their weaknesses. In particular, the [[BossInMookClothing blue Wizzrobes]] are one of the nastiest enemies in the series' history, especially so as they appear with [[GlassCannon orange Wizzrobes]], [[InvincibleMinorMinion Bubbles]], and [[MooksAteMyEquipment Like Likes]].

The Japanese guide for a later game, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past features an [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100206235403/zelda/images/6/69/Christianity.png illustration of Link praying in front of a large crucifix.]] The actual game contains a structure known as the "Sanctuary", which many people theorize is actually a church, due to the building's layout and the use of stained-glass windows.

* JesusTaboo: the Bible is translated as "Magic Book" in English. Also, in a case of EarthDrift, all games past the first two no longer feature crosses on the shields.

* CreepyCoolCrosses: All the tombstones in the graveyard have crosses on them, as do Link's shields and the Book of Magic. Apparently, WordOfGod explains that the motif is caused by the fact that the original plan was to have Christianity as the main religion in Hyrule; the [[CrystalDragonJesus three goddesses]] weren't invented until after the two NES games were released. One common suggestion is that religion has waned over the centuries and, with the land quite ravaged, the old Hylian religion was left behind in favor of a CrystalDragonJesus religion.

* WideOpenSandbox: Quite possibly the UrExample. One of the reasons the game was so well liked was that you could go pretty much anywhere from the start.

* SequenceBreaking: Later games carefully worked out where you could find and use keys so that none were left over and no doors were left locked; this one didn't do that, so you can easily clear level 2 with about six or seven of them in reserve, making it even easier to beat some of the later dungeons.

* ExactWords: One of the old ladies in the cave says "Pay me and I'll talk." So, you give her a good chunk of Rupies, hoping for some great information about what to do next... and she says "Boy, you're rich." Well, she ''did'' say that she would talk if you gave her money...

** Theoretically, you're supposed to clear the first two dungeons before obtaining the White Sword, but since what qualifies you to "master using it" is not the number of dungeons you clear but the amount of Container Hearts you have (5), you can easily pick up two free ones in the overworld map using bombs and grab the White Sword before taking on any dungeons at all.

The Magic Sword, meanwhile, requires 12 hearts to obtain, so it can be nabbed right after you beat Level 4 by getting the two remaining Container Hearts on the eastern shore, making Levels 5 and [[[DifficultySpike especially]]] 6 much easier.

** Pressing Up+ A on the player 2 controller takes you to the [=Continue/Save/Retry=] screen immediately, so you can save without having to die. In rereleases on platforms where you can't plug in a second controller (such as the Game Boy Advance version), substitute commands are used instead.

* ClassicCheatCode: Naming your saved game ZELDA (or at least ''starting'' the name with ZELDA, so ZELDARA would trigger this too) starts you off on the second quest.
