* AnachronismStew: Hyrule is generally presented as the MedievalStasis world from the games; however, in "Stinging a Stinger," the peddler offers Ganon's {{mooks}} a remote-controlled device in exchange for his freedom. Most of the female characters are depicted as wearing Day-Glo makeup. In "Fairies in the Spring," Link wears a bathing suit reminiscent of TheForties, while Zelda's suit is a modern {{p|rincessesPreferPink}}ink one-piece.

At the beginning of "The Moblins are revolting" Link is reading what looks like a modern day magazine.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Well, it's not like Spryte actually needs them, seeing as how she flies everywhere...



* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Link has a habit of twirling his sword around in his hand. In "The Missing Link," when he's non-corporeal and can't hold the sword, Zelda uses it - and does the exact same thing.

* AccidentalAimingSkills: In [[IncrediblyLamePun "The Missing Link"]], [[spoiler:Ganon uses a special wand that zaps humans to the underworld, with the intent of taking Zelda with him. She uses Link's shield to deflect the wand's magic fireball, which ricochets off the castle walls while Link watches, until it falls onto its accidental target. Although he tries to dodge, parts of the fireball hit Link, but because of the magic being weakened, only his body is zapped to the underworld.]]

In 1989, right around the time of airing of ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', Creator/{{DiC}} had also produced a short series of cartoons based on the NES ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' games. The cartoons include elements of both ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI The Legend of Zelda]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink The Adventure of Link]]''). Like the games, the animated series features Link's continuing adventures in the kingdom of Hyrule, battling the evil forces of Ganon alongside Princess Zelda and a FairyCompanion named Spryte. It shared a number of details in common with the [[ComicBook/TheLegendOfZelda comic book series]] produced by ValiantComics around the same time.

Thirteen cartoons were aired in total, and they would usually run during the Friday afternoon episodes. There presumably would have been more, but when ''SMBSS'' was cancelled, the ''Zelda'' segments went with it. The characters of Link and Zelda, along with their respective voice actors, were then adopted into the cast of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'', where Link had a rivalry-turned-friendship with the titular Captain.

* FairyCompanion: Spryte was the ''first'' character to serve as a fairy companion to Link, predating Navi by very nearly a decade. Interestingly, the inclusion of a FairyCompanion was popular, as it showed up both in an [[Comicbook/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast ALttP comic book]] and a LA manga, as well as in the Valiant Comic. Navi was at best the fifth FairyCompanion Link had, though the first in-game one.
