** At another point, you also have to [[spoiler:shoot a statue with an arrow. Nowhere else in the game do you ever have to do this]].
** The game has comparatively few Pieces of Heart, only 12, but they are ''very'' well-hidden. A couple are hidden behind (unmarked) bomb-able walls in otherwise inconspicuous caves, and one is hidden underwater in a dead-end waterway, but not at the end as you might expect; it's in a random tile along the path.

!!This Game Provides Examples Of:
* OneHundredPercentCompletion: Possible, but with a price. If you want to get all of the pictures in the DX version, you must steal from the shop, even though this will permanently rename you "THIEF" and [[ShopliftAndDie the shopkeeper will kill you if you come back]]. If you want to get the game's GoldenEnding, which can only be achieved with a NoDeathRun, with 100%, you must not steal anything before the bow. There's also two pictures that are mutually exclusive.

* ArtifactTitle: This is the first game in the series where the titular princess doesn't appear at all. She's briefly mentioned in the manual and at the beginning.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The Fire Rod. Easily one of the best weapons in the game, faster than the boomerang (another Awesome weapon) and just as powerful, essentially one-shotting almost anything besides bosses. Unfortunately by that point in the game, there's barely anyone worth using it on, aside from the Hot Head and literally ''one'' phase of the FinalBoss. (And you don't even need it for ''that''!)

Even using the game's various glitches to get it early only makes it slightly more practical, since it kills about half the regular enemies in the game in one shot... and does absolutely nothing to the other half (not even just bosses, mini or otherwise, either).



* BigBad: Link spends the game wandering Koholint Island and defeating the various Nightmares to gain the Instruments of the Sirens. It isn't until the very end of the game where Link finds a particularly powerful Nightmare, Dethl, who's been preventing the Wind Fish from ever waking up. [[spoiler:However, it accuses ''Link'' of being the BigBad for wanting to wake the Wind Fish, thus destroying Koholint Island and depriving it of a place to rule.]]

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: If you steal from the shopkeeper, all that happens is that your save file is renamed THIEF upon exiting the store. If you don't mind the name, this is just a minor inconvenience, making actually ''paying'' for your stuff rather pointless. Actual death can be avoided simply by not returning to the shop after you've stolen from him.

* OneHundredPercentCompletion: Technically impossible. If you want to get all of the pictures in the DX version you must steal from the shopkeeper and later return to the store, despite [[ShopliftAndDie how much of a bad idea that is]]. However, doing this means that you cannot get the game's secret ending, which can only be achieved with a NoDeathRun. In this sense, a "pure" 100% of the game is impossible. There's also two pictures that are mutually exclusive.
