** Ironically, Dark Link, the final boss, mostly because how brutal the Thunderbird is (though you don't get to heal inbetween fights). The Thunderbird's attacks cause insane amounts of damage and are very difficult to avoid, plus its movement pattern and small target area make it a challenge to hit in return. Not at all helped by the fact just to ''damage'' it requires blowing half your magic bar on the Thunder spell. By contrast, Dark Link is more or less an Iron Knuckle who can jump (though not nearly as much or as high as the Bird Knights) and has more health. And he doesn't beam spam. He becomes even ''easier'' if you know [[spoiler: the trick of positioning yourself in the far left corner on the arena]].

** Lizalfos - one of the series' staple enemies - debuted in this game. Because it wasn't given a name in English, it isn't well known. Additionally, they predate the ''name'' Lizalfos - the original Japanese game called them "Geru" and in fact some fans think Lizalfos and Gerus are two different monsters.

** A lot of fans who discovered the series with ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' are surprised to learn that ''this'' game was the first appearance of Dark Link as well as Volvagia (translated as Barba).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dark Link is surprisingly popular. Some even consider him a character in his own right and give him a personality in fanworks.

* ContestedSequel: Depending on who you ask, the radically different gameplay and extreme difficulty make this game either one of the best or worst in the series.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The seething hate from many ''still'' hasn't died, apparently purely for being a side-scroller.

** The Red Dairas are the prime example of this trope. They are found in Death Mountain on your way to get the hammer. You'll likely have only one heart upgrade and their throwing axes deal a lot of damage, even with the Shield spell up. Oh, you can't deflect their projectiles either because you get that spell ''after'' you get the raft. Even Orange Dairas are miserable to deal with because their axe can't be blocked by your shield and you won't have access to the downward thrust attack until after you've fought your way through them to get the hammer, meaning the only way to kill these guys is by jumping in for a stab, and your timing ''must'' be 100% spot-on or else they'll hit you in the process.

* FanNickname: Zelda is referred to as "Sleeping Zelda" to distinguish her from other Zelda's, especially the previous Zelda.

* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: The Wizzrobe's new design looks alarmingly similar to a Klansman, complete with white robes, pointed hood and a red cross on its face.
