* HarsherInHindsight: Every single instance where the Master Sword is in a weakened state (''Wind Waker'', for instance) becomes this with the reveal that [[spoiler: Fi is the legendary blade.]] This becomes even more tragic with the reveal of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' and its title card showing a rusty Master Sword...

%%* CrazyAwesome: Ghirahim.

to:

%%* * CrazyAwesome: Ghirahim.Ghirahim, his erratic, effeminate behavior means that he has a few screws loose but he's still one of the series' best villains.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool:
** Ghirahim is a LargeHam MagnificentBastard who steals the show whenever he appears and has some of the game's best boss fights.
** [[spoiler: Demise is a huge, fiery haired demon who is seriously intimidating and has one of the most visually impressive boss fights in the series.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MagnificentBastard: Girahim is a LargeHam who makes the most out of every scene he's in, always seems to know where and when to appear, is incredibly smug with the physical and mental prowess to back it up and [[spoiler: succeeds at his overall goal to revive Demise.]]

** The above-mentioned FandomRivalry this game had with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has become this in light of both it and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' not only both popped up on the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch, but the Switch version of ''Skyrim'' even has some Zelda-themed content made specifically for that version.

** The second and third acts of the story suffer from this. After the focus on trailing Zelda throughout the first third ending with her and Impa traveling back through time, the second third has no important story events up until Link opens the Gate of Time to meet up with Zelda. And while the third act isn't quite as bad about this by virtue of being somewhat shorter, it still takes quite a bit of time until you get to the game's final dungeon, with no important story events happening in between.

** The second and third acts of the story suffer Sacred Flames arc suffers from this. After the focus on trailing Zelda throughout the first third ending with her and Impa traveling back through time, the second third Sacred Fames arc has no important story events up until Link opens the Gate of Time to meet up with Zelda. And while In the third act isn't quite as bad about meantime, the arc consists of a long treasure hunt for three {{MacGuffin}}s. It doesn't help that it is this by virtue of being somewhat shorter, it still takes quite a bit of time until you get to part where the game's final dungeon, with no important story events happening in between.{{Backtracking}} starts to come into play, as this arc introduces the Silent Realms, and even the post-Silent Realm tasks generally revolve around revisiting other previous areas.


Added DiffLines:

** The Song of the Hero arc also suffers from this. While the arc as a whole is much shorter than the "Find Zelda" and Sacred Flames arcs, there is still a marked lack of important story events other than the third breakout of the Imprisoned. There are also no new dungeons in this arc other than the Sky Keep, which itself is at the very end of this arc. The Faron and Eldin portions in particular are yet more [[{{Backtracking}} returns to previous areas]], and you still need to complete one more Silent Realm in order to enter the final dungeon.

** The Imprisoned is notorious for being one of the most despised bosses in the whole series. First, the gameplay design is rather poor; either you have to somehow dodge (or [[GuideDangIt parry]]) his stomp shockwaves to cut his toes, or use the terrain to climb up on his head. While the multiple ways of fighting him sound good on paper, the difficulty of the fight is ultimately lopsided, ranging from frustrating from fighting from the feet to unengagingly easy from fighting on the head. Also, despite being pitched as a nightmarish force of nature by the story, his design is unintentionally comical, with his stubby legs and feet coming off as more adorable than anything. [[spoiler:His true form, Demise, is disliked for different reasons. He is despised mainly for being responsible for one of the game's biggest {{Ass Pull}}s: his curse that brings forth Ganondorf. This combined with his utter lack of presence in the story, with barely any development or characterization to speak of (partially due to him appearing only at the tail-end of the game) makes his existence feel very forced, and when combined with his Imprisoned form, makes him one of the more disliked villains of the whole series.]]

** Groose has quite a lot of popularity among fans due to his CharacterDevelopment from {{Jerkass}} to badass. Even people who dislike or don't care for ''Skyward Sword'' will often say they liked the character.

** Fi. Is she a helpful and [[{{Moe}} cute]] companion with an awesome voice? Or is she a CaptainObvious who's almost as bad as Navi, if not worse? [[spoiler:By the end of the game, though, a lot of people who didn't like her come around because of her sacrifice.]] One particularly divisive moment is in the Sandship, where she [[spoiler:reveals that you can shoot through the vents to reach the giant Timeshift stone.]] Fans are divided on whether this is the absolute example of handholding, ruining what could have been a particularly clever puzzle, or a completely necessary hint for what would otherwise be a completely unintuitive solution.
