* 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.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Kinstone fusions result in a variety of new things, like treasure chests, gold enemies, opened passageways, etc., and there are 100 fusions to keep track of. Since you can't always drop what you're currently doing to run off and claim whatever new prize has been revealed (or you might not be able to reach it yet), the game places a marker on your map to remind you that it's there.

There's also the gold Kinstone pieces, which only appear in set locations instead of being a RandomDrop like the other colors because these fusions are required to complete the game.

* 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.
