The twelfth game in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, and the first completely new one-player ''Zelda'' adventure on the GameBoyAdvance. Despite the fact that it's one player only, it is a prequel to the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwords Four Swords]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures games]], as it goes in depth about the origin of the titular weapon as well as [[StartOfDarkness who Vaati is]]. The game also features a "Kinstone" mechanism, by which Link can collect pieces of medallions and fuse them with {{NPC}}s. These Kinstone fusions unlock secrets, ranging from highly important bonus items, to shortcuts, to rooms full of rupees, to simple chests of more Kinstones.

** Getting all of the figurines rewards you with a large number of Rupees--[[MoneyForNothing but by that point in the game, you don't really need them anymore]]. However, you DO get a Piece of Heart and the sound test. The other example is the "Tingle Trophy" for fusing all the Kinstones. The trophy itself is useless, but you get some form of reward for each Kinstone you fuse.

** The Mirror Shield, which you can only get after you have beaten the game. It does make hunting Golden Beasts (mainly Octorocks because of its reflective beam) easier, but there's no real use for rupees that late unless you are purchasing mysterious shells to use with the figurine sidequest. It does allow you to block the Cyclone Stab that the Red Darknuts and Black Knight use in the final boss gauntlet, but as you've already beaten them before, there's nothing it is really required for.

** The Mirror Shield. The requirements for it is to complete the Goron sidequest (which, by itself, you get a bottle for completing), fusing a Kinstone with one of the Gorons to wake up Biggoron (which can't be done right away), and...beating the game once.

** The ability to shrink with Ezlo alludes to the "Gnat Hat" in the first ''Four Swords''.

** The ability to shrink with Ezlo alludes to the "Gnat Hat" in the first ''Four Swords''. The Minish Cap itself also looks like one.

* CallForward: A musical one. The [[http://youtu.be/sGZBmVe8foI Mini Boss-battle theme]] is actually a remix of the [[http://youtu.be/MaJBwbXVWUk Normal Battle-theme]] of the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink''.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindIdiotTranslation:
** Swiftblade's Swordsman's Newsletter has two errors: First, he claims to have eight brothers, when he actually has six. He also claims moblins drop more rupees than the usual enemy when they don't.
** The ghost in the cemetery is labeled "Spookter" in the kinstone fusion screen. As shown by his figurine and the cutscene after the second fusion, his actual name is "Spekter" and "Spookter" is his brother.
** The moblin figurine claims they mostly appear in Minish Woods. They actually appear in ''Western'' Woods.

Added DiffLines:

* SoNearYetSoFar: The petrified Zelda is kept next to the king's throne in Hyrule Castle, one of the first areas you visit. The rest of the game involves reforging the Picori Blade and upgrading it into the Four Sword in order to free her.

* MessyHair: Link is quite the bedhead before the Minish Cap covers it up (presumably now he has even worse hat hair).

* StealthPrequel: The game introduces Vaati right off the bat and clearly serves as his origin story, but it's not until you've completely reforged and upgraded the Minish sword that it becomes clear you've actually created and are wielding wielding the very [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwords Four Sword]] Vaati is sealed inside in the future.
