* TheWoobie: Link, full-stop. He is trauamtized and sent into peril deadlier than literally any human has ever faced in history, all to save the girl he cares for, all the while being chastised and having his "worthiness" questioned, and it all turns out he was just Hylia's pawn to become a "suitable" hero, and this revelation is crowned by Zelda being sealed away into eternal slumber with nothing he can do about it. And even when he does ''everything right'', even finds the Triforce and ''destroys'' Demise, he returns to at long last be reunited with Zelda, only for her to have her soul consumed by the past incarnation of the very evil he'd beat the odds to end in his own time. Even if he gets his happy ending in the end, both "good" and evil sides toyed with him to get their results.

* WhatTheHellHero: The "heroism" of both Hylia and the younger Impa is questionable at best and purely subjective at worst. As the official prequel manga makes clear, the circumstances the "primordial" Link suffered in being framed and imprisoned ''were orchestrated by Hylia and the heavens'', and despite claiming she felt his pain, ''she does not hesitate to manipulate his immediate reincarnation all over again'', just to clean up ''her'' mess. While Impa is to a lesser degree, it's most certainly deserved for how she'd utterly browbeaten Link when he finally found Zelda again, chastising him for not being an immaculate and faultless hero, when he'd literally just been flung into this situation, manipulated against his will, and all he was desperately trying to do was find the girl he loved who'd been abducted before his eyes. He does everything he can, and all he gets in response is insulted to his face.

* TheWoobie: Batreaux is a minor example. The poor guy just wants to be friends with the townsfolk, but is discriminated against because of his appearance, to the point he desperately wants to be human so other people will accept him. Luckily, Link and Kukiel are nice enough to become his friends.

** Some fans think the game is the best ''Zelda'' ever (although they said the same thing about ''Twilight Princess'' when it came out) whereas others believe it to be the absolute worst of the series, in keeping with series tradition of every new entry being considered both the best and worst of the franchise by different parts of the fanbase.



* ContestedSequel: Standard for the series, especially considering the amount of shake-ups to the series that were introduced compared to some earlier games. However, although it still has a pretty loyal fanbase, this game didn't have a later rise in popularity like all of its 3D predecessors had to different degrees.

** Strangely, ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''[='=]s review got relatively little backlash, despite calling it the worst Zelda he's ever played. Though, they might have thought [[AccentuateTheNegative the outcome]] [[CausticCritic was]] [[ForegoneConclusion inevitable,]] or that it echoed several complaints they had of the game, despite Yahtzee calling out some ''Zelda'' fans as people who see no wrong in the series.

* HellIsThatNoise: The SilentHill-like music that plays once you step out of the circle in the Silent Realm and when you run out of safety time if you don't find another Tear.

** Of course, seeing how [[spoiler:Fi is a rather divisive character]], some people have conversely reported that slamming the Master Sword into walls now gives them a sense of fulfilment.

* 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 [[TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]] and its title card showing a rusty Master Sword...
