-> '''King Harkinian:''' "Zelda, Duke Onkled is under attack by the YMMV tropes of Ganon! I'm going to Gamelon to aid him." \\
'''Zelda:''' "But father, what if something happens to you?" \\
'''King Harkinian:''' "I'll take the Triforce of Tropes to protect me! If you don't hear from me in a month, send RedLink!"
----
* AccidentalInnuendo:
-->'''Militron:''' "'You must be hardened with fire!''
-->'''Hectan:''' ''YES, Master...''
** And mostly thanks to YoutubePoop:
--->'''Zelda:''' Luckily, my magic pouch can carry as much as you want.
** Link gives us this gem.
--->'''Link:''' Great, I'll grab my stuff!
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: YouTubePoop tends to keep these characters' personalities constantly varied:
** Link can either be a competent hero, a BloodKnight, a PsychoForHire, a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, or a DepravedHomosexual. Or even all four.
** Zelda is, for the most part, depicted as the OnlySaneMan. Whether or not she ReallyGetsAround is the part of her alternate interpretation among poopers, however.
** The King can either be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, a [[BigFun jovial manchild]], [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood abusive parent]], a PointyHairedBoss, or [[TheCaligula a tyrant]]. He also is [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]], talking about dinner and his boy at every given opportunity.
** Ganon can be AffablyEvil, FauxAffablyEvil, or even an AntiVillain.
** Morshu is either a regular shopkeeper, a BadassNormal, or a FatBastard.
** Impa is either a CoolOldLady, a [[DirtyOldWoman massive pervert]], or an EldritchAbomination.
** Thanks to YouTubePoop, the common portrayal for Duke Onkled is a ButtMonkey who betrays the King every other day of the week, which is taken as seriously as his appearance. He's also seen as DepravedHomosexual, often with the King.
* AngstWhatAngst: During ''Wand of Gamelon'':
-->'''Impa:''' ''"Oh, my! Your father has been captured!"''
-->'''Zelda:''' ''"...What about Link?"''
** Justified as the Triforce of Wisdom promises The King will safely return.
** Also:
-->'''Ganon:''' ''"You are my prisoner!"''
-->'''Fari:''' ''"Hey!"''
* AntiClimaxBoss: Every boss is killed in one hit from the weapon they are specifically weakest against. This includes Ganon, the final boss, who gets sealed in a book in ''The Faces of Evil'' and ''Wand of Gamelon''. Even though the weapon he's weak against is only a book in the former.
* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: Perhaps one of the biggest games to fall victim to this trope - the majority of the people who know stuff about this game only know it from game critics, YouTube, YouTubePoop, and people like WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd. Granted, it's pretty easy to say that we weren't missing much by not playing them and experiencing for ourselves how these are...
** Zelda's Adventure is very hard to obtain footage from because it can't be emulated, and demands ''huge'' prices on eBay.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UThXIioyZ5E Militron's "you will die" pose]]. The pose itself and for being amazingly drawn and animated by the game's... standards.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome / EarWorm: Say what you will of the rest of the games, but a lot of the music in ''Wand of Gamelon'' and ''Faces of Evil'' is very cool and catchy, if a bit inconsistent with the Zelda series.
* CultClassic: Of the SoBadItsGood variety.
* DeaderThanDisco: ''Faces of Evil'' and ''Wand of Gamelon'' -- plus ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink Zelda II's]]'' reputation as the OddballInTheSeries -- basically killed any chance of there being any further side-scrolling ''Legend of Zelda'' games.
** Oddly enough, when these games were first released, they actually had a fair amount of praise from reviewers and the few who actually played them on release. Good luck finding anyone who considers them anything above SoBadItsGood today.
** It also killed ([[MetroidPrime For a while]]), any attempt to outsource any of Nintendo's core franchises to Western studios after this fiasco.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Morshu is very popular, despite having only 2 lines of dialogue in the entire game. ''[[{{Catchphrase}} Mmm]]{{m|emeticMutation}}mm''!
** The King is only really important to the storyline of ''Wand of Gamelon'', and not very much at that. He only ever shows up in the intros and endings of the games. However, he's one of the staples of YouTubePoop.
** Militron is one of the most popular bosses of the game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UThXIioyZ5E probably because he actually looks badass]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqmVAFstFg4 Well, at least his armour.]]
* FountainOfMemes: Seems that every line is not only quotable, but it's very easy to remember the entire dialogue of the game when tried.
* HilariousInHindsight: ''Link: The Faces of Evil'' involves [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind a hero being sent by the ruler of his kingdom to a distant island nation to fulfill a prophecy. While there, he uses magical artifacts to save said island from an evil demigod residing in a mountain, who has been transforming the residents of the island into monsters]].
** [[Series/BreakingBad "I won"]]
* HoYay: A [=BDSM=] relationship is implied between the King and Duke Onkled. [[YoutubePoop Poopers]] jump on this quite often with videos such as ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZL6YHLwn9M The King's Secret]]''. Although, to be fair, in that vid ''everybody'' is gay.
-->'''Duke Onkled:''' "Please, Your Omnipotence, have mercy!"
** May be a bit squicky because Harkinian and Onkled are [[KissingCousins cousins]].
* IconicCharacterForgottenTitle: The game starring Link is actually titled ''Link: The Faces of Evil'' not ''The Legend of Zelda: The Faces of Evil''.
* MemeticMolester: Thanks to one of his lines in ''Wand Of Gamelon'' made very questionable via {{Mondegreen}} ("Keep the cunt[[note]]It's supposed to be "the runt"[[/note]] in chains!"), this incarnation of Ganon is seen as one. Not to mention there's the scene where he kidnaps a sleeping Zelda in ''The Faces Of Evil''...
** Ushrom's rather creepy mannerisms as well as 50% of his dialogue in his only appearance of the CD[=i=] games (as well as the entire Zelda franchise) being misinterpreted as something '''''much''''' worse has earned him this status as well.
* MemeticMutation: [[FountainOfMemes Pretty much everything]].
* {{Narm}}: If the creators intended these games to be serious, then ''Goddamn everything''.
* NeverLiveItDown: The game is not all about badly animated cutscenes as you can hear everywhere. In fact, the games actually received decent reviews on their original release, and even contemporary reviewers who ignore the pathetic cutscenes that define the game in the eyes of most find it to be an okay game. If anything, they were CondemnedByHistory.
* NightmareRetardant: Ironically, ''many'' of the bosses in the game fall victim to this. It's hard to be scared of the villains when all of them have Narmful designs, [[LargeHam bombastic acting]] and just plain ''weird'' methods of terrorizing people.
** Hilariously, the ordinary citizens are often truly frightening thanks to [[UncannyValley odd expressions and movements]] and their habit of moving in closer and invading your personal space.
* OneSceneWonder: Many of the minor characters appearances.
-->'''Morshu:''' Come back when you're a little... Mmmmmm... richer!
-->'''Mayor Kravindish:''' This is illegal you know.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Sort of. See SoBadItsGood below.
* SnarkBait: These games are known for being fun to make fun of, especially being SoBadItsGood games from an already otherwise famous series.
* SoBadItsGood: It's ''very'' hard to sit through the [[DerangedAnimation cut]][[OffModel scenes]] without laughing.
* {{Squick}}: The big-lipped blonde woman in ''Faces of Evil'', who seems to be hitting on Link to get him to recover her stolen necklace and briefly feels herself up when he does.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Two of them feature Zelda in the starring role. How awesome would it be to play a competent Zelda game starring ActionGirl Zelda?
* UncannyValley: '''[[UpToEleven GOOD GOD.]]'''
* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted. Nowadays, these games are either flat out reviled or considered SoBadItsGood by the Zelda fanbase. But would you believe that back when these games were first released they actually did pretty well with the game magazine Critics? Critics have praised the games for their animated cutscenes and voice work and thought it was a nice new direction for the series. (And even those who did give the game a negative review back then generally deemed it as SoOkayItsAverage.)
