* MonoNoAware: A major theme of the story is how change is not always pleasant, but clinging to the past is foolish. See {{Deconstruction}} above.

* VideoGameStealing: Done in a realistic way. Items stolen from enemies with the Grapple Hook actually disappear from their inventory. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything If that particular item happens to be visible, such as the Moblins' Skull Necklaces, it also disappears from their model.]] The Darknuts and Moblins also react to having their Knight Crest/Skull Necklace stolen too. The latter ones even shout something that sounds like "Me loot!" when you steal their Skull Necklaces

* {{Lolicon}}:
** Tingle really likes some of the little girls in this game. He has a major thing for Medli, who might be [[OlderThanTheyLook older than she looks]]. And also speaks very fondly of Aryll. No excuse for that, unless it's platonic... but whenever he mentions one of them, it is punctuated by hearts.
** Gonzo, when Mako suggests his and Tetra's children.

* AndroclesLion: In the first dungeon, Link saves the dragon Valoo from having his tail tormented by Gohma. Later, Valoo [[spoiler: brings help while Link is captured in the Forbidden Fortress, and blasts Ganon with dragon fire for good measure]].

** The All-Purpose Bait is not only useful for feeding pigs, rats and fishmen; it can also be used to draw enemies nearer. [[spoiler: This includes Puppet Ganon's snake form.]]

** In the HD remaster, without heart drops, the numerous small threats in a dungeon will whittle your life away, but the boss door always has some fairies you can nab before entering, where you mercifully only have one thing to worry about - [[spoiler: [[ThatOneSidequest to take a picture for the gallery]]]].

** The bomb shop owner, who sells his bombs for outrageous costs while being a giant jerk the whole way. [[spoiler: He gets some glorious LaserGuidedKarma when he [[WhatAnIdiot does the same thing]] to Tetra and her pirates; they beat him up, steal all of his inventory, and leave him bound and gagged with nobody visibly coming to rescue him (and you don't get the option to do it).]] He learns his lesson after that experience though, becoming much, much nicer and selling his bombs at a very affordable cost.

** And before that, if you hit the small pigs often enough, they react similar to the infamous killer cuccos.

* DevelopersForesight:
** When you slash the King of Red Lions with your sword, he flinches. If you slash him when [[spoiler:you are taking Tetra to see the king in Hyrule, the boat doesn't do a thing, as his spirit is not currently inhabiting the boat. He also doesn't talk or move]].
** In the original release, the Octorok figurine's description stated that they were the winner of the "Perfect Attendance Award," for appearing in every Zelda game to date. The HD remaster removes this, because they did not appear in ''Twilight Princess''. It was instead given the "Series: Exemplary Enemy" award.
** If you return to the previous dungeons (or the Forest Haven) during [[spoiler:the endless night, it will still be storming in places that are open to the outside, such as the cliffs leading to where you get the grappling hook in Dragon Roost Cavern.]]
** The barrier preventing you from entering Ganon's Tower is ''really'' comprehensive, including it being really high and wide, having a lack of ledges on the path it covers and an invisible wall behind the barrier. For a series well known for it's skips like the infamous Wrong Warp trick in Ocarina Of Time, it seems the developers did everything they could to prevent you from getting to the tower early.
** The sheer number of uses for All-Purpose Bait. It really does deserve that name.
** Using the Forest Water, a magical product of the Forest Haven that purifies evil from plants, on Kalle Demos, the evil ManEatingPlant boss of the Forbidden Woods, will kill it instantly. This is especially crazy because the Forest Water turns into regular water 20 minutes after it leaves the Forest Haven, meaning that it would likely expire during the time it would take most players to go through the dungeon and get to the boss. This trick wasn't even discovered until 2016, ''13 years'' after the game's initial release. It doesn't even have much use for speedruns [[note]]Managing to kill Kalle Demos in one vulnerability cycle with the sword is faster than the bottle animation.[[/note]]; the devs put it anyway because it made the game's world just a little more consistent and logical.

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Among other things that change on the second playthrough, Link wears his Outset Island clothes through the course of the game (normally Link only wears them right at the start before he gets his "coming of age" green tunic). The justification is what he's actually wearing is "[[Literature.TheEmperorsNewClothes invisible except to those of great honesty and virtue]]", so [[TakeThatAudience the player just can't see them]]. (But Ganondorf can see them fine.)

* EternalEnglish: Averted; one of the Great Deku Tree's lines implies that the (barring a NewGamePlus) indecipherable ancient Hylian is simply ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''-era Hylian.

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 [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild 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.
