* LighterAndSofter: The art style initially got a lot of flack from the FanDumb for this reason. However, it's debatable if the plot and themes in the game are actually Lighter And Softer as for one, [[spoiler:Hyrule was flooded, leaving only the highest mountain peaks as islands. Also, The Hero of Winds stabs Ganondorf in the head]]. However, Wind Waker has the misfortune of being a successor to [[{{VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask}} Majora's Mask]], a game that dealt with the [[ApocalypseHow apocalypse and total annihilation of every living being]]. ''Any Zelda game'' would have been [[TropeNamer Lighter And Softer]] after this comparison, which is shame as Wind Waker [[SurpriseCreepy has some terrifying moments]].

* SurpriseCreepy: The ''Zelda'' franchise has always been good at this, but the art-style makes the creepy moments stand out all the more. That's without mentioning the rather dark backstory, and [[spoiler:Ganondorf meets his end at the hands of Link via "brain-kebab".]] There's also the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown mentioned above. Unsettling enough on its own merits (how often do you see Link at the ''receiving'' end of those?), the fact that the oldest Link could be is 16 and possibly as young as 9 makes it all the worse.

* RoleReprisal: While Link and Zelda were given new voice actors, Takashi Nagasako would reprise his role of Ganondorf from Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Which makes sense, because Ganondorf is the same person while Link and Zelda are new incarnations.

** The story is a deconstruction of the Zelda series as a whole. Wind Waker was developed in the shadow of Ocarina of Time, and its extremely aware of its predecessor's legacy. Ganondorf fails because he continues the same mistakes he made in the past, and he knows this, but there is a kind of futility in his actions. On the other hand, this Link has no direct connection to The Hero of Time. While everyone in the world waited for the Hero of Time to return, Link was the one to finally step up and become the hero on his own. The ultimate message is about moving forward, not looking back, which is analogous to the struggle between developing a game that satisfies fans of Ocarina of Time and a developing a game with its own identity.
