** Skull Kid has one of these in the form of, you guessed it, his C6. Tatl and Tael will circle around him and deal tons of damage in what feels like seconds. It's fast, it hits from all angles, and there's barely any hinting aside from a subtle animation. Most attacks have some form of hint that tells you to get out of the way; with Skull Kid, not so much. Sure, you can guard against this move, making it much less effective, but if you're on an Adventure Square that makes you unable to guard, then Hylia have mercy on you. And woe be those who tackle the "Divisive Plan" mission in Master Wind Waker that has you dealing with three of them, later up to twelve if you're careless.

** Ganondorf fits the bill in a similar vein to Volga. Despite his heavy build, he's quite fast in both movement and attacks. His C1 when fully charged is invulnerable and deals some of the highest damage possible in the game. His C5 and C6 lets him clear out hordes of mooks in no time and are extremely good at it, with upwards of 70 [=KOs=] being easy to get, and C6 potentially netting over 100 [=KOs=] in one blow. C3 meanwhile has good range and deals good damage on officers, in addition to killing smaller groups of mooks that aren't worthy a C5 or C6. C2 is the designated launcher and can be used to start combos. C4 is a close-range option, though it's biggest usefulness comes from the fact that it charges Ganondorf's gauge the fastest, meaning two uses of it fully charges C1. The fact that most of his moves can be dodge-cancelled on any active frame meaning Ganondorf can get out of trouble with ease and increasing the safety of his moves further helps him out. In the hands of a skilled player, you'll feel like a tank on the battlefield. He was made even stronger in the 1.5.0 update, making his slower moves safer to use and thanks to the Hasty Attacks skill mentioned below, most of his speed issues are as good as gone.

* RelationshipWritingFumble: A lot of people criticize how ReincarnationRomance of Link and Zelda is suddenly now guaranteed to happen every time. While some of this criticism has to deal with it being StrangledByTheRedString as noted below, some criticism has to deal with this. In the games specifically in [[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaOcarinaofTime Ocarina of Time]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]], Link has several ShipTease with plenty of women with people believing Link and Malon got together in Ocarina of Time due to the Hero of Time's grandson living in the ranch and Twilight Princess having Zelda and Link hardly interact with each other with Link having ShipTease with Ilia and Midna the most (for that matter, Zelda in that game has more ShipTease with ''Midna'' than she does with Link!)

** Sheik revealed to be a disguised Zelda, which is so blatantly obvious that even non-Zelda fans would have seen it from miles away, since the very first scene in the game shows Zelda playing Sheik's harp. [[NotHisSled The only bigger surprise would have been that the two of them were separate beings]].

* GameBreakingBug: In ''Legends'', there is one annoying bug that freezes the game whenever you try to rename a fairy you caught (and this happens on both 2DS/3DS ''and'' New 3DS). Most players keep the fairies' default names to prevent this, hoping that it gets patched.



* TakeThatAudience: Most likely unintentional, but some of [[AmericansHateTingle Tingle's]] battle quotes seem to be directed at Tingle's critics.
-->'''Tingle:''' "Hey, Tingle is pretty useful, right? Right? ''[[RuleOfThree Right?]]''"
-->'''Tingle:''' "Appearances can be deceiving, but Tingle is rather tough... Whaddya mean Tingle doesn't look tough?!"

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Great Fairy "weapon" for Link, which allows the player to take control of the Great Fairy herself. She is incredibly powerful, boasting some insanely badass attacks such as raining down massive bombs, summoning Levias to create thunderstorms, and even dropping the MOON upon your foes! However, all of her charge attacks have very long animations that can't be cancelled out of except by using a special attack. This can make trying to finish stages quickly to get A ranks or defending multiple objectives a hassle due to how big and slow she is. On top of that, because of her large size, it's much harder for her to avoid taking unwanted damage (although mitigated somewhat due to having invincibility frames during most charge attacks). So while a very powerful and awesome character in her own right, the Great Fairy falls short in comparison to faster and equally (if not more so) overpowered characters such as Master Sword Link and Volga.

* CriticalDissonance: The reception to this game from most mainstream reviewers, while not entirely negative, is more of a SoOkayItsAverage reaction. [[SoCoolItsAwesome The fanbase and general gamer reception begs to differ]] (though to be fair, this is the best expected reaction for any ''Warriors'' game from Koei, so this is hardly surprising). ''Legends'' takes this a bit further, in that its reviews are slightly worse than the Wii U original but the fandom views it as a superior PolishedPort.

** The lack of any major representative from 2D or handheld entries was criticized, with the roster leaning towards the 3D console entries. Three of the future DLC packs for the game involve ''A Link Between Worlds'', ''Phantom Hourglass'' and ''Spirit Tracks'', and perhaps most surprisingly, ''Link's Awakening'', with the latter pack introducing Marin, a fan-favorite character who hasn't shown up in the franchise again in roughly ''17 years'' (though her {{Expy}}, Malon, has become a mainstay).

Added DiffLines:

** According to Cia, Link and Zelda are stuck in a cycle of ReincarnationRomance. Due to the fact several games have little-to-no onscreen interactions between them, some fans have taken this to instead mean they're destined to be connected in one-way-or-another (be it PlatonicLifePartners, LadyAndKnight, romantically, or just Link saving Zelda), rather than automatically romantically involved.


Added DiffLines:

** While ''Skyward Sword'' helped develop the idea of Zelda/Impa, this game was when many began to ship it. Many fans feel the two have chemistry. It also fits the same ReincarnationRomance themes as Link/Zelda.
