Fado is an in-series example. He shares his name with a female Kokiri from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Gohma. Not to be confused with the first boss of Ocarina, which was an arachnid, not a myriapod.
When you enter Gohma's boss room in Dragon Roost Cavern, if you do not move for a while, the King of Red Lions will tell you "A mighty enemy stands before you!" and give you advice on how to fight Gohma, even if Gohma hasn't appeared yet. Similarly, if you don't attack Phantom Ganon the proper way on your first encounter, the Pirate's Charm will activate and the King of Red Lions assures you that you can strike back his projectiles with the Master Sword's power to repel evil.
