* ButNowIMustGo: Link is this at the end of the game, as he has no time to enjoy the world he save--though he does stick around long enough to slip into Zora form and play with The Indigo-Gos at their concert.

* LowFantasy: Downplayed. Termina seems to be much lower on the fantasy scale than the general Hyrule games, with Link's use of even basic magic fascinating characters and leading them to wrongfully assume he's capable of greater feats like resurrection, and while there is a legend of a hero who can change Termina's destiny, it never specifies that Link himself is the only one who can do it. Indeed, he pulls it off thanks to favorable circumstances rather than any divine plan. Also the game's villain is a child corrupted by forbidden, uncontrolable power rather than the more Sorcerous and Calculated Ganondorf.

* OutsideContextProblem: While they aren't part of the main story, it's still hard to believe aliens existing in a fantasy world like ''Zelda'', even if it's another world.

** Link himself ends up as an Outside Context Solution as he processes magic powers and a small measure of Divine Backing in the world of Termina that treats Legends as children's tales as opposed to Hyrule's heavy emphasis on fate and Legends.

Added DiffLines:

* ArcNumber: The game puts a large emphasis on the number four. There are four transformation masks, four dungeons, four mini-dungeons on the moon, etc. Given the threat of the Moon's fall, [[FourIsDeath this is very fitting.]]

** The Indigo-Gos' hit song is [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening "The Ballad of the Wind Fish"]]. (Though, that's just its title; the song itself is the Sea Lily's Bell theme, also from ''Link's Awakening''.)

* LostInTranslation: The Fierce Deity's Mask is described as being the mask of an oni in Japanese. The scene where you are invited to play "good guys and bad guys" before fighting the final boss involves playing tag in the Japanese script. In Japanese, the game is called "pretending to be an oni", with the "it" player as the oni - i.e., Link is the oni.

In Japanese, the person who is "It" is called the Oni; hence, the entire ordeal is a pun. You're playing tag, and you're "it".

** Gorons cannot swim due to their stonelike weight. If you jump into water while wearing the Goron Mask, Link will instantly [[SuperDrowningSkills drown]], then respawn minus one heart of health.

** Gorons cannot swim due to their stonelike weight. If you jump into water while wearing the Goron Mask, Link will instantly [[SuperDrowningSkills drown]], then respawn minus one heart of health. Though ''Twilight Princess'' would much later seem to suggest they don't ''drown'', per se, so much as ''get stuck with no way out''.



** Several characters will only give you respect in one form. The girl in the treasure chest shop charges different rates depending on which species you are (and only the Goron can win a Piece of Heart), while the Curiosity Shop will only do business with humans.

At least with the treasure shop girl, what mask you wear affects whether and how she flirts with you rather than how much she hates you.
