Regardless of whatever your subjective thoughts and opinions are on this game and the Zelda series as a whole. As far as your body is concerned - there is only one objective unforgivable sin the game commits: Getting that Heart Piece from Orca. It goes without saying, that the GameCube controller is designed to near-perfection. It is ergonomically designed to fit oh so comfortably into your hands. But this bastard requires you to hit him 500 times. Your left hand will start to hurt from constant L-targeting while parrying for this long without a break. Especially if this is your 3rd or 4th attempt in a row. Even worse, Orca practically laughs at your cramping pain when you do accomplish this feat. Repetitive Strain Injury... is no laughing matter in the real-world.

What trope does game design invoking actual physical discomfort/injury on the player, go under?

Doesn't the game default to lock-on targeting? Meaning that your issue is more of a Self-Imposed Challenge?

  • Series Continuity Error: The King of Hyrule states before the Hero of Time left Hyrule, he had split up his Triforce of Courage into 8 shards hiding it across the land in chests. This contradicts Ocarina of Time's ending, in that Link took it straight with him to the past to meet with Zelda, (and presumably warn her of future events), thereby creating a different timeline. This also creates a major Plot Hole in Wind Waker's storyline - preventing Ganon from ever being able to reassemble the complete Triforce in the future timeline.

Final Edits feels this isn't error committed by WW, as Twilight Princess retconned it. Discuss.

I explained the reason below. I hadn't seen your message because I took too long to write my post, my apologies.

GOOD GOD. The messaging system is broken. If it ain't broke, PLEASE don't fix it. All I want to do, is respond to a YMMV deletion and query what trope should it go under. And... I can't! It crashes up every time I try to edit the message.

You could deliver the message here, still. The reason why Series Continuity Error was removed is because 1) it's not YMMV (if it was for that alone, I would have moved it to the main page), and 2) it's factually incorrect. The King didn't split the Triforce of Courage like you suggested. The Triforce itself shattered when Link returned to his past era. The reason why he still "has" it in the past is because he's now in the Child Timeline, in which he still has the relic with him. In fact, by that point the Triforce was still split and that's why Ganondorf unwittingly had the Triforce of Power (which is what saved his life during the backstory of Twilight Princess. So there's not really any contradiction to speak of.

The "bloom lighting" thing was deleted because of the So Good, We Mentioned It Twice violation. It's already mentioned under one of the entries in Broken Base. And I have to say that your version of the example had some flaws anyway, such as the unnecessary flowery tone at the end ("It was so intense, it was nearly blinding, washing out the colors too much").

EDIT: Forgot to comment under your example on the Orca minigame. It was deleted because the trope you suggested was about something different entirely. The example in question is already described under That One Sidequest (and please don't edit it if all you want to add is a rant against Orca "laughing at you", or pothole to Unpleasable Fanbase, which is a Flame Bait page, meaning that linking to it is explicitly prohibited).
