** The two Pieces of Heart you get from a Gasha Tree and Maple. It is ''completely'' random when these pop up, so prepare to spend a long time trying to get those. Worse yet, depending on where you run into Maple, there's a chance the Piece of Heart can end up stuck in a tree or rock wall, where you can't grab it.

[[spoiler:The trick to the Gasha heart piece is that only some spots can give it up at all, making it a GuideDangIt instead.]] Maple is still just as aggravating, but both of these heart pieces can be [[SaveScumming save scummed]], provided you manage to snatch Maple's before she gets to it first, anyway.

* [[GoddamnBats Goddamn Keese]]: More obnoxious in this incarnation than in most others. Especially the flaming varieties.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Both Veran and Onox were interesting villains with unique powers, cool character designs, and creative methods. However once again the BigBad turns out to be Ganon. Onox especially gets it bad. Unlike Veran who has plenty of personality, Onox is a FlatCharacter because we don't see him as often.

** Farore thanks to being DemotedToExtra during the development. She's the third Oracle and has her own artwork but she has no role in the story and only exists to get items by giving to her linking passwords. This is especially jarring when the goddess Farore is associated with courage, Link's virtue.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Ricky being a [[AnimalGenderBender male kangaroo with a pouch]] didn't just confuse the fans. The ''Nintendo Power'' writers called Ricky a "he/him" in their first preview only to switch to "she/her'' in the following preview, likely because the FridgeLogic set in. They went back to "he/him'' during their mini-guide, presumably because they had gotten their hands on the game at that point and found out Ricky really was a guy.

* ThatOneSidequest: The Hero's Cave in a linked game. In an unlinked game, it's just a short dungeon in ''Seasons'' that you go through to first get your sword, and it doesn't even exist in ''Ages'', but in the linked games, it's 21 rooms long in ''Seasons'' and 15 in ''Ages'' and in both cases you need to have the equipment from the 7th dungeon in order to clear it.

** Then there's the dice puzzle in ''Ages''. You have to push a colored dice over three color tiles in a room filled with lava. You can cool it down by pulling a lever, giving you only a few seconds to push the dice from one safe area to the next. If the lava starts to boil again while you roll the dice over it, you lose it and have to exit the room and start over from the beginning. To make things worse, you access that room through a warp vortex, and if you fall into the lava, when you re-spawn on top of the vortex, it immediately warps you out of the room, forcing you to start over even if you didn't lose the dice. There really aren't much room for mistakes.

* {{Woolseyism}}: The Uura ("hidden") and Tokagejin ("lizard-folk") races were dubbed as "Subrosians" (from the Latin ''sub rosa'', [[GeniusBonus referring to an old practice in which a rose was placed over a doorway to indicate a secret meeting]]) and "Tokay" (referring to a species of gecko).

** The Ancient Ruins from ''Seasons'' is almost hilariously dickish in is obvious antagonism toward the player and willingness to break ''Zelda'' conventions. It's an already large level which contains multiple pointless rooms full of enemies and hazards. There's a hallway trap unique to the entire series that will send Link to an instant game over unless the player can speed through an obstacle course with almost perfect timing. One puzzle involves two randomized switches; one allows further progress while the other drops snakes on Link's head. The experience concludes with a particularly annoying boss. The fact that it immediately follows [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels the run through Tarm Ruins and the Lost Woods]] doesn't help.
