* 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]].

** Link's "I'm so hungry, I could eat an Octorok," line is even more hilarious in light of the fact that in ''TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Link can cook the body parts of dead Octoroks to use in elixirs. However, attempting to cook only Octorok parts together to make a whole Octorok will get you Dubious Food.

* {{Asspull}}: At the end of ''Wand of Gamelon'', Link turns out to be have been trapped in Alma's mirror with no explanation whatsoever.

* HamAndCheese: Mark Berry's gloriously hammy performances of King Harkinian and Ganon definitely made the mediocre cutscenes easier to sit through.

* SoBadItsHorrible: On the other hand, one can indeed make the case that the games are as terrible as some might claim - for example, the WebVideo/GameGrumps playthroughs of the sidescrolling games are video-documented examples of two fairly competent retro gamers being driven ''absolutely crazy'' by inexcusable flaws such as HitboxDissonance, level designs that are often difficult to tell which areas are solid ground and which aren't, unfair enemy spawns... The list goes on. They have a proper controller for ''Link: The Faces of Evil'' and they ''still'' consider the game to be near-unplayable.



* UnfortunateImplications: An unintentional example. Militron calls one of his victims a "Worthless Koridian." Due to how compressed the audio is though, it instead sounds like he's saying "Korean." [[YouTubePoop YoutubePoops]] lampshade it a lot.

* 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. That may count as being DamnedByFaintPraise, however.
