** The Compass only shows where the Trifroce fragment is located. Later games would have the Compass show the location of the dungeon's treasure chests and the location of the boss. The Map and Compass in the first game were found by either killing all enemies in the room or were in just plain sight while later games would have the two items be inside treasure chests.

* AbnormalAmmo: This game uses your Rupies as ammunition for your arrows for some reason, most likely technical limitations.

* TheCameo: According to the Japanese instruction booklet, Digdogger and Manhandla are respectively a Unira from ''Clu Clu Land'' and a Piranha Plant from ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros.]]'' (incidentally, Rupies use Ingot sprites from the former). This is removed from localized manuals. The Bubble enemy may also be an allusion to the latter game's [Lava] Bubbles (then known as Podoboos).
* CastFromMoney: Arrows in this game drain Rupies when fired due to a lack of a proper ammo system.

* DiscOneNuke: If you know where to look, are somewhat good at evasion, and willing to grind Rupies for a few minutes, it is possible to get three of the five overworld [[HeartContainer Container Hearts]] and therefore the [[InfinityMinusOneSword White Sword]], ''and'' the Blue Ring before entering the very first dungeon in the first quest. The three extra hearts and the White Sword can easily be gotten quickly and will allow you to breeze through at least the first half of the game, but the ring is ''very'' expensive at 250 Rupies (five away from the maximum) and thus requires more time spent finding hidden rooms in the overworld for larger caches of Rupies if you want to buy it quickly (and without savescumming or Rupie-farming), but it is also a major boon to have itself. (You can also manipulate the money-making game with SaveScumming, which will greatly cut down on the time necessary to farm Rupies). Averted in the second quest where four of the five overworld Heart Containers require special items to get. With the remaining one, you only need the Power Bracelet, but you have to make your way to the graveyard and you are likely to die multiple times trying to get there. At a minimum, you're doing the first dungeon with the Wooden Sword.

** The lowest Rupie units are orange instead of the now-standard green (since Rupies shared their palettes with the enemy characters). Orange Rupees would later resurface in ''The Wind Waker'', but they are worth 100 Rupees in that game.

* ExactWords: One of the old ladies in the cave says "Pay me and I'll talk." So, [[WrongGenreSavvy 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...

* LostForever: In the second quest, some of the old men in the dungeons ask for 50 Rupies, and if you don't have that, you must give up a [[HeartContainer Container Heart]]. Not as in one unit of health, we mean ''one heart of your life capacity.''[[note]]Of course, you can attack the old man and wait for the resulting fireballs from his flames to kill you instead.[[/note]]

* MoneyToThrowAway: The bow works this way, as, rather than having a stock of arrows like in the later games, each arrow you fire costs you a Rupie. If you run out of Rupies, the bow becomes useless until you collect more.

** Gohma cannot be defeated by any other method other than using the bow and arrows. If you run out of Rupies, which act as your ammo for arrows, you're boned. Likewise, Ganon can't be defeated without the Silver Arrow.

* WallMaster: The {{Trope Namer|s}}. These ones are disembodied hands that creep out of the wall and, if they hit Link, drag him back to the entrance of the dungeon. They're also quite generous with dropping blue Rupies and life hearts though, and they aren't that durable, so players who aren't creeped out by them may be happy to encounter them.

* WrongGenreSavvy: One of the caves gives you information if you pay the right amount of Rupies. Video game logic is that if you want the tip that will help you advance, you should [[PathOfMostResistance pay the highest amount available]]. Alas, that results in "boy, you're rich." The second-highest amount is the one that yields useful information.

Added DiffLines:

** Collecting the map only alters the radar at the top of the screen, and doesn't affect the map Link creates in dungeons at all. In order to figure out where they haven't been, players have to actually compare the two.


Added DiffLines:

*UnexpectedlyRealisticGameplay: Every dungeon has two maps: one that Link makes and one that he finds. Unlike later games, the latter will not fill in the former or show where he has been, so the player has to actually compare the two maps on their own.

* BeefGate: The Manhandla that is the boss of Level 3-1. Manhandla is incredibly hard to kill with any weapon weaker than the White Sword - stab it has four different heads to kill, and each one takes four strikes with the Wooden Sword to destroy. If you haven't gotten the White Sword (or don't know about Manhandla's bomb weakness) you aren't going to have an easy time finishing that level. To a lesser extent the Zols that heavily populate 3-1. The White Sword kills them easily, but the Wooden Sword splits them into two Gels and then they respawn every time you leave and reenter a room.

to:

* BeefGate: The Lynels that populate the Death Mountain area in the northwest of the map. They're by far the nastiest enemies you'll find in the overworld, with the orange Lynels taking 4 hits from the Wooden Sword to kill and the blue ones taking about 7, and both varieties shoot a sword projectile that requires the Magical Shield to deflect, while dealing a hefty 2 hearts of damage when they hit. A single one can easily slaughter a beginning player, and you will find swarms of them in the northwest, effectively keeping the player out of that region until they acquire some more hearts, the White Sword, the Magical Shield, and preferably the Blue Ring.

* 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 red Wizzrobes]], [[InvincibleMinorMinion Bubbles]], and [[MooksAteMyEquipment Like Likes]].

However, the most game, they're a breeze compared to the difficult moments are where you're constantly 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 red Wizzrobes]], [[InvincibleMinorMinion Bubbles]], and [[MooksAteMyEquipment Like Likes]]. Then the rest of the bosses are flatout jokes.
