* DeaderThanDisco: ''Faces of Evil'' and ''Wand of Gamelon'' -- plus ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II's]]'' reputation as the OddballInTheSeries -- basically killed any chance of there being any further side-scrolling ''Legend of Zelda'' games. Oddly enough, when these games were first released, they actually had a fair amount of praise from reviewers and the few who actually played them on release. Good luck finding anyone who considers them anything above SoBadItsGood today. It also killed ([[VideoGame/MetroidPrime for a while at least]]), any attempt to outsource any of Nintendo's core franchises to Western studios after this fiasco.

* DiscreditedMeme: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]]; Much like ''VideoGame/HotelMario'', the memes these games produced have been featured so many times in Youtube Poop videos that nobody really uses them anymore. Unlike ''Hotel Mario'', however, the memes are still pretty popular ''outside'' of Youtube Poop on websites like Website/{{Tumblr}}.

* CriticalBacklash: [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/zeldacdi/zeldacdi.htm Some of the people]] who have actually played the games contend that that they aren't as bad as they're made out to be. They say that the poorly-animated cut scenes distract from the OK gameplay, and that they're actually some of the better titles for the CD-i. Considering the average quality of CD-i games, though, [[DamnedByFaintPraise that may not be saying much]].

*** One of the melee weapons in that game is a Wooden Mop, meaning Link too can now scrub all the floors in Hyrule.

** And then we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfAx-8ivBZU a MIDI track]] that was submitted as the Overworld theme for ''Zelda's Adventure'' which actually isn't that (there isn't one, actually), which was remixed by a different composer for VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdIIAssimilation.

* OlderThanTheyThink: ''Zelda's Adventure'' was the first game in the franchise that defined the value of Yellow Rupees to be worth 10 rupees which predates ''Wind Waker'' by eight years.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The gameplay, meanwhile, is considered to be handled a fair bit more competently by some, but not so much as to make the games must-play titles nowadays. What's more, accurate CD-i emulation is notoriously difficult, and CD-i consoles & physical copies of the games themselves can go for up to a few hundred bucks on auction sites, meaning even ''Zelda'' fans who would otherwise be willing to give the CD-i games a chance consider them more trouble than they're worth to actually track down and play. Despite Website/HardcoreGaming101's spirited defense of the games, the sad reality is that few people want to spend $300+ to play something that's only "not as bad as everyone keeps saying".\\\

* {{Mondegreen}}: In ''Faces of Evil'', Ganon offers "I'll make you a face, the greatest in Koridai!", but "make you a face" is commonly misheard as "your face".

* NarmCharm: In all fairness, Ganon's "You ''dare'' bring ''light'' into my lair? YOU MUST DIE!!" is [[EvilIsHammy pretty damn bombastic]].
