Added DiffLines:

** The leaf clusters on trees are made up of several pulsating and intersecting polygons. This looks good in a stylized way most of the time, but sometimes when you are skydiving above them (especially when returning to Skyloft), they can look like barren trees with thin green Xs over them.

* FandomRivalry: ''Skyward Sword'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[FanDumb and all because of the name.]] Well that, ''and'' both games were released in November of 2011, with both coming from well established action/adventure/fantasy franchises (''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' and ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'').

There's a bit of FriendlyFandoms at play, though, especially considering Eiji Aonuma has stated he's a fan of ''Skyrim'' (to the point that it influenced the more open-world approach he took with ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'').

** Groose has been compared to [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]].

to:

** Groose has been compared to [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]. Both are dimwitted and egotistical guys with a shorter and tubbier lackey and one-sided crushes on the main heroine. Groose even has a similar physique and wardrobe to Gaston's. The chief difference between the two is that while Gaston got progressively more and more evil as he sought to make Belle his own, Groose TookALevelInKindness soon after reaching the Surface and eventually decided that [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Link is better for Zelda than him]].

Added DiffLines:

** You have to collect tadpoles in the flooded Faron Woods to piece together Faron's portion of the Song of the Hero. This makes sense in Japanese since the Japanese word for music note literally means "tadpole," which is why the English translation named them "Tadtones."

* Link, full-stop. He is traumatized 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.

** A strange example, but when the game won Series/XPlay's [[http://www.g4tv.com/videos/56655/best-of-2011-videogame-deathmatch-best-of-2011-winner/ Videogame Deathmatch]] (which was essentially the User GOTY) over channel favorites like ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'' and, most perplexingly, ''[[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers FIFA 12]]'', they [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame called their viewers out as angry Nintendo fanboys]] whose anger was the only reason ''Skyward Sword'' won, and have [[BiasSteamroller a specific air of contempt]] over the eventual winner. Even fans of the aforementioned games besides ''Skyward Sword'' [[EvenNerdsHaveStandards were disgusted by their immaturity.]] It gets even worse when Website/ScrewAttack gave the game their User GOTY over ''Skyrim'', and yet never saw it fit to complain about it either, making Series/XPlay's huge bias even more obvious.

* 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.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:

* 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.]]
