* ViolationOfCommonSense: In order to finish all Kinstones fusions you muse fuse with few things that ''try to kill you'' like the cat Scratcher in Hyrule Town.

* ObviousBeta: The European version [[https://tcrf.net/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_The_Minish_Cap#Regional_Differences has some regional differences]] that seem to indicate it being based on an earlier build than the Japanese and North American versions. For example, Eenie's Kinstone Fusion can become LostForever due to a bug, a few minor features are missing (such as the shop's Bomb Bag upgrade), and the Ice Wizzrobe's figurine's description references the Fire Rod, which only exists in DummiedOut form (and doesn't behave as intended if hacked in):

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultyDrop: Compared to the [[Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames previous installment on a handheld console]], this game feels ''much'' easier. In fact, it might be one of the easiest games in the entire franchise (not to mention one of the shortest, if you decide to ignore its many sidequests).

* LostForever: If you don't save a certain NPC early on, you can never get the Light Arrows.

* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: One of the hidden sword skills allows Link to... break pots with his sword. Sure, the technique itself is called the Rock Breaker and it also allows the ability to break rocks, but it doesn't explain why he can't just do what other Links have been able to do without training.

The ''Oracle'' games and ''Link's Awakening'' required Link to have a level 2 sword to smash pots, so it seems to be thematically tied except that the Rock Breaker doesn't increase the amount of damage Link deals.

* BlowYouAway: Strangely, Vaati doesn't do a whole lot of this. So... why did the backstories of ''Four Swords'' and ''Four Swords Adventures'' take such pains to describe him as a ''wind'' mage/sorcerer?
** ''Hyrule Historia'' finally explains this as Vaati no longer remembering being a Minish, and so used his new form to become a sorcerer.

* BraggingRightsReward: 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.

** "Picori" is also the human name ''for'' "[[CallARabbitASmeerp Minish]]".

* EldritchAbomination: If you thought Vaati looked bad in his first boss form, the second and third ones hit NightmareFuel even as the garish colours and flashing screen seem determined to bring on a seizure.

to:

* EldritchAbomination: If you thought Vaati looked bad in his first boss form, the has ''five'' forms (only three of which you battle). First and second and aren't too bad, third ones hit NightmareFuel even as is pretty nasty, and then the fourth and fifth are basically a giant floating eyeball with more eyeballs attached and eyeballs on the inside too. His garish colours colour scheme and flashing the way his magic makes the screen seem flicker seems quite determined to bring on a seizure.



* GiantHandsOfDoom: Mazaal. Also, the Floormasters and Wallmasters.

* GoForTheEye: Vaati's weak spots are his eyes. Sadly, he's got lots of them.

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 simple chests of more kinstones.
