* BowAndSwordInAccord: Averted! Along with ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II]]'', the ''Oracle'' games are the only ''Zelda'' games with no Bow to speak of.

* BowAndSwordInAccord: Averted! Along with ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II]]'', the ''Oracle'' games are the only ''Zelda'' games with no Bow to speak of. Instead, both games provide an item with which you can use different types of seeds as ammo.

* NamesTheSame: Labrynna (Ages) is the only Zelda game to have both River Zoras (Evil) and Lake Zoras (Good), and explains that they are separate species that don't like each other; though evolutionary cousins.

* LostForever:
** Both games contain an "Advance" shop that can only be accessed when playing on a Game Boy Advance. In the Virtual Console release of the games for the 3DS, the shop cannot be accessed and the items inside cannot be obtained. Said items are merely an early supply of Gasha Seeds and a ring that's a BraggingRightsReward, but players seeking to acquire everything will find themselves a couple rings short simply due to developer oversight.
** If you play ''Ages'' first in a linked game, there's one square on that game's map (an island in the ocean) that you'll never be able to explore.

* [[SequelDifficultySpike Prequel Difficulty Spike]]: Both games are ''significantly'' more challenging than ''Link's Awakening'', with ''Seasons'' being tougher in terms of action and ''Ages'' in terms of puzzles.

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Ambi's lover, the lost sailor, whose disappearance caused her to build the tower and weakened her to Veran's manipulations, is essentially responsible for the entire plot of ''Ages'', despite not even showing up in-game. [[spoiler:Though it does turn out he was the pirate captain in ''Seasons''.]]

* ContinuitySnarl: Even ignoring the question of canonical order within the pair, these games have some issues fitting into the official timeline. ''Literature/HyruleHistoria'' places them in the Downfall branch as interquels between ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]'', all featuring the same incarnation of Link. However, Zelda seems to know Link only by reputation in a linked game. To make matters worse, ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'' seems to offer up yet more contradictions. In the opening animations for the ''Oracle'' games, Link is shown approaching the completed Triforce in Hyrule Castle, yet Ganon somehow came back into possession of the Triforce of Power before ''A Link Between Worlds'' started. The latter game also makes no mention of Ganon getting resurrected successfully since his defeat in ''A Link to the Past''; even discounting [[spoiler:Twinrova's attempt in a linked game]], there still doesn't seem to be a way for Ganon to reclaim his piece while deceased. Add in the inconsistencies with Ganon being dead versus sealed away, and ''Hyrule Historia'' just left more questions than answers about the games' placement in the timeline.
