TRIVIA / The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

  • Development Gag:
    • You can find homes for two of the oracles, but not the third, a reference to a planned third Oracle game that never got made.
    • You can also find bonus The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past music in the sound files that can be used to recreate the opening sequence in the game. Some of it was used in the game (such as Rainy Mount Crenel), but others (such as the A Link to the Past Title Screen) weren't. A reference to the fact that the Oracle games were planned to be remakes of the original game but were instead made into their own stories.
  • Fan Nickname: The Legolas Brothers for the various sword tutors.
  • I Knew It!: When it was originally released, Minish Cap was believed to be the first game in the timeline. The guidebook Hyrule Historia later reveals that Minish Cap really was the first game in the timeline when it was originally released in 2004 (albeit not for the same reasons why fans thought it to be the case) and it held the position of first game in the timeline until 2011 with the release of Skyward Sword, which was set even earlier.
  • Orphaned Reference: Although the Fire Rod was removed from the game and replaced with the Flame Lantern, the European version of the Ice Wizzrobe's figurine still advises you to "hit them with your Fire Rod!"
