* RottenEasterEgg: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6XMKtjtvaM There is a disturbing and downright depressing easter egg]]. After retrieving the Ocarina of Time from the castle's moat a telepathic message from Princess Zelda tells you to go to the Temple of Time. Just in case you don't understand this message, there is a guard in one of Hyrule Castle Town's back alleys who was told to find you and tell you to to to the Temple of Time. For most players this is unnecessary so they never even look for him, but if you do you'll find the guard, hear his message, then see him die. Most players never knew he was there, so the majority of the time [[DownerEnding he'll die without ever completing his mission and without any hope that Princess Zelda or Hyrule can be saved]].

* BigThinShortTrio: The residents at Lon Lon Ranch: Talon (big), Ingo (thin), and Malon (short). However, this trope does not apply seven years later, when Malon is an adult and equally as tall as Talon.

** Almost every Zelda game does this. Often a cause of some problems for those who don't understand that "Zelda" is the princess' name and not the hero's, given it turns key speeches into yuri slashfics.

** And the rather famous screenshot taken where it shows Zelda with her hands clasped together, with a smile on her face, telling Link [[http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l236/Aurora425/zelda-ok-then-assbag.jpg "Okay, then, Assbag...]]"



* KickTheDog: This is how Ingo in the [[BadFuture Bad Future]] is able to coerce Malon into doing whatever he wants; either Malon does what Ingo says, or Ingo will "mistreat the horses!" (It's never made clear exactly ''how'', probably by refusing to feed them, whipping them, etc.)
* KidHero: Link and Zelda, at first. This is actually a deconstruction; while Zelda is very clever and knowledgeable, her plan turns out to be AwesomeButImpractical and actually ends up aiding the villain because she didn't know as much as she thought she did. And while 9-year-old Link racks up an impressive kill count, Ganondorf painfully establishes that he's still not strong enough in a FinalBossPreview. The kids thought they could be heroes and save the day, but they were defeated by their inability to acknowledge the gaps in their understanding or their delusions of grandeur. Perfectly understandable kid behavior, but because they were playing with forces they didn't understand, the consequences were severe. [[ItsAllMyFault Zelda acknowledges all of this]] when she returns after the timeskip.

* KleptomaniacHero: In classic RPG tradition, Hyrule apparently lacks any laws against casually ransacking a stranger's house just because you can.

** Nabooru promising you as a kid to "give you something special". It seems innocent enough until you're an adult and she says this little tidbit: "If I'd known you would have grown up to look this good, I would have kept my promise."

* BittersweetEnding: You manage to defeat Ganondorf and restore peace to Hyrule, but a lot of people are lost in the future. Ruto, Darunia and Saria become Sages and their friends and loved ones mourn their absence; Zelda says goodbye to Link and sends him back to the past; Navi leaves Link once sent back to the Temple of Time; and the Great Deku Tree is dead.

* [[SheIsAllGrownUp He Is All Grown Up]]:
** Link goes from AdorablyPrecociousChild to hot {{Bishonen}} over the course of seven years, much to Nabooru's delight.
** Malon, Zelda, and Ruto also grow from precious children into gorgeous adults after the seven years.



* [[InvulnerableHorses Invulnerable Horse]]: Because no hit-detection or collision-detection was scripted into the game, Link is completely ''invincible'' while on the back of Epona. Some may consider it appropriate, considering his trusty steed is named after a Celtic goddess.

Added DiffLines:

** The game also contains leftover code for an interesting attack - [[SwordBeam shooting beams from Link's sword!]] Some hacks have partially restored the ability, which can harm or kill distant enemies but doesn't actually appear to hit them: the projectile briefly appears in front of Link and fades away without moving. Also, it is used the same way as a spin attack (holding down the button and charging up), rather than being at full health. It isn't immediately clear if this was intended to replace the spin attack when Z-targeting was used, or why exactly it was taken out.
