** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]''
*** The theme in [[spoiler:Hyrule Castle]] (see above)
*** We hear the title-screen theme when [[spoiler:Tetra's Triforce piece completes in said castle]]
*** The track "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P2HNic7JjI Farewell Hyrule King]]" is a classical cover of the Hyrule Castle theme from [=ALttP=], with a hint of the Dungeon theme from the first game.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN4I1NO7LLA Windfall Island's theme]] definitely takes its cues from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw1O6-LjfeA Kakariko Village]].
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lktCyPMRiSs&list=PL3E7B876342ECE5C0 Ganon's Castle]] is a remixed version of the same. [[note]]--And instead of getting louder as you climb the stairs to the final showdown, it gets ''quieter.''[[/note]]
** The original ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI Legend of Zelda]]''
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTQkeX5IcVI The Hero of the Winds]] song is a remix of the title screen music (aka the first music ever heard in the series).
*** The cutscene before facing Ganondorf incorporates the final dungeon theme.
** Other games/miscellaneous:
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TOZwZIgPtI "The Legendary Hero"]] opening cutscene incorporates the [[BootstrappedTheme series leitmotif]] as it tells of the "Hero of Time."
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsEkEs-OZeQ Phantom Ganon's theme]] takes its intro from [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI the first game]], is primarily based on Ganon's battle music from [=LttP=], and has a second half that incorporates Ganondorf's battle music in [=OoT=].
*** Before the fight with [[spoiler:Puppet Ganon, the way that Tetra is asleep on the bed recalls the way Zelda is asleep during ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II]]''.]]
*** The three statues in the sea that reveal Hyrule are statues based on Din, Nayru, and Farore: the three goddesses that created Hyrule and referenced throughout the series (starting with ''Ocarina of Time'').
*** Though not mentioned in the main game, the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' trophy description for the Helmaroc King state he's the same being as the Helmasaur King. The monsters share the same name in Japan, confirming the connection.



* MythologyGag: Quite a few things from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and its DummiedOut elements. A blond Kokiri named "Fado" was meant to be the wind sage in [=OoT=], but her role was changed to a simple CreepyChild minor NPC with an oddly in-depth personality. This would later be achieved in ''Wind Waker'' with its own "Fado", who is a GenderFlip of the original. There are also a few DummiedOut temples that achieved reality in this game. If you actually look and compare this game with the beta of [=OoT=], it's actually quite similar aside from the storyline, right down to sages powering up Link's Master Sword.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Ganondorf's plans after his return seem to focus on eliminating ''exactly'' the things that caused him to lose in the past. He kills the sages so that the Master Sword loses its power and attempts to hunt down any descendant of Princess Zelda so that he can steal her Triforce. Later during the final boss fight, when he realizes that you're acting as a distraction while Tetra shoots him, he simply jumps over to her and knocks her unconscious.

* VillainBall: For all his DangerouslyGenreSavvy, in the second half of the game Ganondorf makes the mistake of [[spoiler:pursuing Zelda and the Triforce of Wisdom as per usual]] instead of [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just killing Link]], who, unlike in other games, he has no reason to avoid, as [[spoiler:the Master Sword is depowered and this Link doesn't have the Triforce of Courage]]. It is quite foolish of him to obsess over an irrelevant {{MacGuffin}} rather than dealing with an immediate threat, but that gives Link the breathing room necessary to complete the plot.

* MoodWhiplash: Imagine going through a graveyard-like temple full of zombies and reanimated skeletons. Your only companion is a bird girl who you must rely on for helping you, unable to kill the ghosts without her help. Eventually you come to a spiral staircase and must leave your only companion behind, afraid of what is beyond that door. As you enter you come into the arena to find a morbidly obese ghost that you fight with circus music playing in the background. Said music is greatly distorted and twisted in the second fight and in the HD version.

A remade version, ''The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD'' was released for the WiiU in 2013 for two specific reasons: 1) to be a stop-gap game to satiate fans while waiting for the new entry developed on the same console, and 2) to serve as an outlet for the developers to test out what they can do with the new hardware. The gameplay itself has been slightly streamlined, particularly in regards to the sailing mechanics and the late-game FetchQuest. The Tingle Tuner has been replaced with the Tingle Bottle, used to send messages to the game's Miiverse community. The game also includes the more challenging Hero Mode introduced in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', only this time, you can start a new file with it activated rather than have to beat Normal Mode first, and toggle it every time you play thereafter.

* MiniBoss: There's one per dungeon (except Forsaken Fortress, which has two), plus there's Big Octo and Cyclos in the Great Sea. Notably, almost every miniboss in this game is subject to being degraded upon subsequent appearances, to the point that Link will frequently fight them en masse at various points.



** Once again. Why does Link always end up accidentally helping the evil he's supposed to kill? Ocarina of Time, the Oracle games, Four Swords... and now THIS. This time, when getting the Master Sword, he unlocks not only the monsters from their stasis but also [[spoiler:gives Ganondorf his power back. Oh, and the Master Sword lost its power long before Link even pulled it, meaning he can't even fight Ganondorf.]]
** Unlike the previous example, this one isn't explicitly pointed out, but [[spoiler:by assembling the Triforce of Courage to go after Ganondorf, Link gives him the opportunity to get his wish.]]

* OfficialCouple: Anton and Linda. The sidequest to upgrade the Picto Box to its Deluxe version already touches upon the mutual feelings the two feel (as one of the objectives is to take a shot at them during the exact moment they're watching face-to-face). Once the Picto Box can take pictures in color, it'll be possible to start reuniting the two so they can have a date and declare their feelings to each other. [[DidNotGetTheGirl Kamo doesn't take this well]], as he's in love with Linda as well.
