* LivingShadow: The FinalBoss.
* LostForever: There are some experience bags and a one one-up doll that can be missed because they're in palaces, which become inaccessible after you collect the palace's item, defeat its boss, and restore its crystal (which causes the palace to crumble). Additionally, these goodies only appear ''once''; once you've collected them, they won't appear again unless you revert to an earlier save file. However, not possible with dungeon items (in the cartridge version at the very least), despite multiple rumors. WebVideo/TheAngryVideogameNerd discussed this and disproved it during his review of the game.

FinalBoss.



* NintendoHard: Widely considered the hardest of the entire series, with good reason. [[DemonicSpiders Blue Iron Knuckles]] in particular will have you tearing your hair out. The Eagle Knights in the Great Palace are even worse... until you figure out the trick to beating them [[spoiler: by simply blocking their attacks until they jump over you, then doing an upward thrust to their feet,]] making them incredibly easy.

* OneTimeDungeon: The Palaces become Mountain squares on the overworld map after you beat them, but only after you both insert the crystal into the idol's forehead and collect the required item, fortunately. The only things that can truly be LostForever are a one-up in the sixth palace and some ExperiencePoint bonuses.

The story basically has two threads. On the one hand, Link, after his defeat of [[BigBad Ganon]] in the original game, is attempting to collect the third piece of the Triforce: the Triforce of Courage. Doing this will help wake the sleeping Princess Zelda ([[LegacyCharacter not the same one from the original]]) from her long magical sleep. On the other hand, Ganon's followers are trying to resurrect Ganon, and the only way to do that is with blood shed of the hero who felled him. Thus, there's lots of enemies standing in Link's way as he attempts to deposit six crystals in the six palaces throughout Hyrule and open the path to the Great Palace, where the Triforce of Courage is kept...

* DroughtLevelOfDoom: The game has many caves and areas you must travel through in order to get to various dungeons and temples. [[NintendoHard The game kills you]] [[EverythingTryingToKillYou in such efficient ways]] that you're likely to run out of both health and magic by the temple and dungeon in question, let alone facing [[ThatOneBoss the boss]].
** ''You will not'' reach TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon with more than the shirt on your back. It's not a NoGearLevel thing; the path to it is just that good at demanding everything you've got.

** However, there are four extra lives hidden in the overworld, and one each in the sixth and seventh palaces. Pick these up only when you absolutely need to, and the drought isn't so bad.



* OldMaster / OldSoldier: While [[DownplayedTrope not as old]] as most examples of this trope, there are a pair of Hylian soldiers from the last great war who, despite not being at the peak of their physical ability as they once were, can still teach Link sword techniques.

* IntimateHealing: Every town except Old Kasuto has a woman in a red dress that offers to restore your health if you enter her house with her. Because the game does not show you the inside of the house, or what she is doing with Link, many players have jokingly speculated that they're having sex. Even TheAngryVideogameNerd gets in on this.
