* SuddenlyVoiced: This is the first game in which Link explicitly uses his voice: "Come on!" and "Meow!"



** Justified however, in that being able to swim forever and therefore go from island-to-island without need of a boat would render sailing pointless.

* SuperDrowningSkills: Link of this game is unique among the 3D title Links in that he can't swim forever; should he still be deep water when the timer runs out, he will ''drown.''

* SupremeChef: Link's grandmother. Her soup replenishes all your hearts, replenishes all your magic, and doubles your attack strength until you take damage. And you get two doses of it per bottle. It even extends to Link's drinking animation! Normally when he drinks a potion beforehand he usually looks grossed out by it like he knows its gonna taste bad. When he drinks the Elixir Soup however, he's excited and happy!

** The game's backstory can be seen as a deconstruction of TheChosenOne premise that the series runs on. Inspired by the legend of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime the Hero of Time]], the people of Hyrule count on a hero spontaneously appearing to save them when evil arises. Because of this, when Ganon returns without a Link to oppose him, the people of Hyrule are unable to defend themselves and the gods must flood Hyrule to prevent Ganon from taking over. This continues into the main story, where the current Link is stated to have no connection to the older heroes and rises to and earns his status as a hero through his own initiative, rather than being automatically appointed at the start of his journey.

This continues theme carries through into the main story, where the current story itself, where, this time, Link is explicitly stated to have no connection to the older heroes and rises to and earns his status as a hero through any past heroes. His actions are done mostly by his own initiative, rather than being automatically and it's only towards the end of his journey, after he's proven his worth on his own, that he gets the Triforce of Courage and is officially appointed at the start of his journey.as a hero.

* FreudianExcuse: Ganondorf, of all characters, has one. His monologue about how growing up in the desert made him a bad person: Ganondorf led a harsh life in the desert, saw the lush and prosperous land of Hyrule, and saw that the people had no idea how good they had it. That made him ''angry.''

* FrickinLaserBeams: The Beamos enemies aim them at Link when he's in their vision range, and also a wall-mounted Moblin statue in the Forsaken Fortress, for some reason.
