* HellIsThatNoise: The ''Franchise/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.
** The scream that wakes up the other Guardians made by the Sky and Earth Watchers if they find you.
** The music that plays during each battle against The Imprisoned in general.

** [[WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}} Egoraptor]] was expecting this trope when he absolutely tore ''Skyward Sword'' apart in a 2-minute AuthorFilibuster about how much he ''loathes'' it. So far, not a lot of people seem too bothered, beyond a few who mention he's overreacting over a fairly inoffensive game.

* MemeticLoser: Ghirahim, due to losing to the novice Link ''four separate times'' throughout the game. Some fans have unfavorably compared him to [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} Team Rocket]]. The game attempts to HandWave it by saying Ghirahim was only toying with Link and did not use his full power until their final encounter, but while [[OneWingedAngel this does appear to be true]], it only makes him look even more foolish and incompetent for repeatedly allowing a weaker opponent to get the better of him.

** The biggest offender, in the opinion of fans, was Gamespot after giving the game a 7.5, the lowest score anywhere. Fans '''[[InternetCounterattack seethed]]''' with rage. Even worse was [[http://www.zeldainformer.com/2011/11/gamespot-amends-their-7510-skyward-sword-review.html the reason for it.]] They said that the reviewer somehow managed to ignore the several times the game tells you how to control it (specifically, he thought it was controlled through the infrared sensor, which might mean he was trying to keep the remote aimed toward the screen the whole time). To top it all off, despite admitting the error, he still stood firm to the score. Gamespot has [[NeverLiveItDown lost every ounce of credibility since then]], and their reviews got worse from there.

** Fi, [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper in fine tradition]]. She often shoots down the player's attempts at exploring by insisting that they go where [[{{Railroading}} the plot specifically wants them to go]]. Her CaptainObvious moments, especially pointing out when your health and battery life are low even with the glowing red indicators on the screen do not help. Neither does her robotic personality. Fi does have plenty of fans, so she isn't a complete scrappy, [[spoiler:[[AlasPoorScrappy and her sacrifice at the end turns some critics around.]]]]

* SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome:
** The sword controls have been extremely well-received.
** Likewise, the Beetle has been highly praised, with some saying it's one of the best items out of ''all'' Zelda games.
** [[RuleOfThree Thirdly]], the Bow's function in this game as more of a SniperRifle has gone down well with fans. It helps that it's found in the [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels Sandship]].

** The Beetle can be this if you want to save your Seeds, Bombs, Arrows, etc. Even more so since it can also reach Rupees, Items, etc., in normally unreachable places.

* ArcFatigue: 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.

** When it comes to sub-arcs, the lead-up to the Fire Sanctuary ''really'' drags in particular. First you have to search for the Silent Realm entry point, then complete the Silent Realm (which itself is just the main portion of the Eldin Province). Afterwards, you can travel to the Volcano Summit and find the entrance to the Fire Sanctuary, but you will likely have to backtrack to the water source to solve the Frog Switch puzzles. But the kicker comes at the Fire Sanctuary's doorway, where after you encounter it, you have to travel all the way to Faron Woods to borrow Faron's giant water bucket and call Scrapper to take it to the doorway. And then Scrapper rushes to the base of the mountain, necessitating that you ''slowly'' have to escort him all the way to the Volcano Summit while protecting him from the Blins that suddenly appear. In short, it takes you a ''really'' long time just to access the final dungeon of the Sacred Flames arc.
