When Link first meets Marin in Link's Awakening, he mistakes her for Zelda. Zelda's sprite in this game is an edited version of Marin's.
In the intro for Oracle of Seasons, it's clearly bright daylight, while the intro for Oracle of Ages, it has more of a twilight-ish feel to it (observe). In the official timeline, Ages comes after Seasons, the intros to both games having hinted at that.

In "Seasons," the Maku Tree is unable to see the location of the final Essence of Nature in his dreams. That's because it's not in Holodrum—it's in Subrosia.
