** The helmasaurs look and sound a lot like baby dinosaur-lizards, which makes them unusually cute despite their aggressive nature and reptilian design.

* KillerApp: Like ''Ocarina of Time'' before it, ''Twilight Princess'' was heavily hyped as one of the greatest games of all time, and became one of the best-selling games in the series and helped introduce many newcomers to ''Zelda''; in fact, it was sold with 3 out of 4 Wii systems at launch.

Added DiffLines:

** The City in the Sky, if you're short on time and can't complete the dungeon in one sitting. In any dungeon, Ooccoo will warp you out of the dungeon, where you can save and later reload the game, using Ooccoo to teleport back into the dungeon and pick up precisely where you left off. Unfortunately, the City in the Sky does not allow you to do this; if the player warps to the shop with Ooccoo and saves, the game reloads just outside the shop and causes Ooccoo to forget Link's warp point. Although Ooccoo does say that she can only warp Link to the shop and back (rather than warping in and out of the city), the game doesn't actually warn you that the usual "warp and save" trick won't work here. This can result in a lot of unnecessary and frustrating backtracking for unfortunate players who didn't have enough time to finish the dungeon and thought that they could simply continue later on as usual.

%% ** Many fans feel this way about Zant. Most of his onscreen appearances are usually in flashbacks that only focus on Zant's cruelty and not his character, and he only interacts with Link and Midna three times in the whole game, [[note]]Once at Lanaryu Spring, before the boss fight with Stallord, and finally at the Palace of Twilight[[/note]] thus leaving his character underdeveloped when the VillainousBreakdown payoff comes around. That being said, many fans were quite elated to see him return as a playable character in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'', which in fact plays up his psychopathic traits rather than keeping them a surprise.
%% ** This incarnation of Princess Zelda is barely relevant in this game. She only interacts with Link three times before the final battle with Ganondorf. Of those three, two of them were in Wolf form and she spent most of them speaking with Midna.
%%** Despite being the real BigBad, Ganondorf himself falls into this. He gets even ''less'' screentime than Zant[[note]]Once in the post-Arbiter's Grounds flashback, and at the story's endgame[[/note]], and thus his character gets even less exposure than him.
%% ** [[LaResistance The Resistance]], despite being a cool team of rebels who actually care about Zant and Ganondorf's takeover of Hyrule, do barely anything other than show Link where dungeons are and unlock new areas. Even when Link finally storms Hyrule Castle, they only appear in a brief scene where they take out a small group of enemies Link could have easily handled.
%% ** Dark Link is given a new character model for his appearance in Twilight Princess, but said appearance is as a cameo in a single cutscene.

* CompleteMonster: {{The Sociopath}}ic [[PsychopathicManchild Zant]] is [[BossSubtitles described by the game]] as a [[FakeKing "Usurper King"]]. At first, he [[HijackedByGanon gained power from Ganondorf]], but he had his own agenda. His first heinous act was attempting to murder Midna, the rightful heir to the throne of the Twili. When that failed, he [[BalefulPolymorph transformed her into an imp and banished her and transformed all her people into hideous shadow beasts]] just so he could have zero opposition to the throne. When he took over, his lust for power still wasn't satisfied, so he decided to extend his tyrannical reign to the prosperous kingdom of Hyrule. There he executed the Queen of Zoras in front of them, and froze Zora's Domain, leaving many of the Zoras to die. He then forced Princess Zelda to surrender and uses Twilight on her kingdom of Hyrule, rendering all the citizens of Hyrule as [[AndIMustScream spirits]] who could only watch as the shadow beasts tore up the kingdom. When he's confronted by Link, he attempts to kill Midna and transforms Link into a wolf with powerful magic just because [[DisproportionateRetribution Midna defied him]], and later rants that only he is allowed to rule the world.

** Zant to an extent. While he is the most diverse boss in the game and has an awesome battle theme to go with it, he is not that difficult if one remembers what weapon to use, not helped that Zant doesn't exactly have a vast repertoire of attacks. [[note]]he mainly fires energy blasts and when you get to Blizzeta's phase, he tries to stomp on you.[[/note]] Also, the sword duel at the end was pretty lackluster due to him only having about three attacks at his disposal, all of which are results of his insane breakdown. This possibly counts as an InvokedTrope, however, since Zant's whole gimmick is a combination of "trying to be something he's not" and "taking power from others". His boss battle makes you re-visit previous areas and battles that you've already won, lending further credence to the fact that his power does not come from his own self and is thus false (see: stealing Midna's throne, using Ganondorf's magic to strengthen himself, etc.).
