** 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.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures:
** Due to how open the world is, its possible to run out of keys, so the game allows you to buy them at shops so your quest doesn't become unwinnable.

** Upgrading your sword requires you to have your life meter have a certain number of hearts before the old men would allow you to claim your new sword.

** Upgrading your sword requires you to have your life meter have a certain number of hearts before the old men would allow you to claim your new sword. This wouldn't happen again until 31 years later in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' where 13 heart containers are required to pull out the Master Sword.

** Keys were interchangeable, meaning you could use any key on any door in any dungeon, making it possible to run out of keys. Luckily, you could also buy keys from a shop if you happened to run out, though the concept of buying keys would stay in the first game. Starting with the second game, all keys can only be used in the dungeons they're found within.

Zelda II continues this trend, but you can bypass locked doors with the Fairy spell. Starting with the second third game, all keys can only be used in the dungeons they're found within.

** While Faries are around to heal you, there's no bottles to hold them in like the later games did, so you really had to be careful with taking damage. They also only heal 3 hearts.

* InconsistentDub: The English manual translation often doesn't match the in-game version, such as Ruby instead of Rupy ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS later Rupee]]), Whistle actually being Recorder, MagicWand rather than [[MagicStaff Magical Rod]], and ([[FandomBerserButton most infamously]]) Ganon spelled as Gannon.

* 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, Rupees 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).

* 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.
