** The Majora's Mask Pack comes with two characters: Young Link, the [[LegacyCharacter legendary Hero of Time]] complete with [[InfinityPlusOneSword the Fierce Deity Mask]] as a weapon, and Tingle, a rather [[FightingClown unconventional yet effective warrior]].


** With the release of the aforementioned ''Link's Awakening'' pack, data miners have found the last three DLC characters to be released later this year.

* When Link draws the Master Sword. [[spoiler:Wizzro realizes now may be the best time to get the drop on him, and attempts to kill Link from behind whilst distracted via a blast of dark energy. Link proceeds to NoSell it with an OffhandBackhand via the Master Sword. If an evil sorcerer born from a dark artifact is capable of wetting himself, Wizzro's reaction may indicate he did ''just'' that.]]
* Midna punching [[spoiler:Cia]] in the face is ever so cathartic.

** [[spoiler:It's even more awesome in the penultimate chapter. Following Cia's defeat some time prior, [[PutOnABus all the characters from various eras were sent back]]. Cue Lana being surrounded by a horde of monsters closing in for the kill, desperately trying to defend herself, [[TheBusCameBack and guess who shows up]].

* After Cia returns from the Era of Twilight, [[spoiler: Ganondorf uses his three spirit fragments to restore his physical body then tries to take the Triforce from Cia. Cia's response? To send the pieces of Courage and Wisdom back to Link and Zelda and use the Triforce of Power to seal Ganondorf away once more, all done in a big "screw you" to the King of Evil.]] The BadassBoast she gives makes it all the more awesome.

** Making it more awesome is that [[spoiler:Ganondorf is fine with this, and amasses an army while he's stuck there so he can get the drop on Hyrule when Cia is defeated]].
* This incarnation of Link, canon or not, may be one of the most powerful and most badass Links we have ever beheld. Not only does he have to contend with forces of evil spanning three eras apart from his own -- each taking their own hero to defeat on their own, mind you--and not only does he have to fight literal armies constantly, [[spoiler:but he takes on a Ganon powered by the entire Triforce, and ''wins''.]]

* For an "evil triumphs" variant, [[spoiler:Ganondorf executes a flawless XanatosGambit so that he wins no matter what, and as soon as he revives, gathers up an army and successfully assails Hyrule Castle. The end result? For the first time since [[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaALinktothePast A Link to the Past]], Ganondorf has ''the entire Triforce'' and all of its power at his beck and call.]]
** The cherry on top? For the first playable time in the entire series, Ganondorf [[spoiler: faces Link in open combat, [[TheBadGuyWins and WINS]]. This Link is able to actually use the Triforce of Courage, plus he has an entire army to back him up, and Ganondorf still beats him into submission alongside Zelda and Impa, all three of whom can get battered to a pulp at least twice each during the siege level.]] It's a monumental achievement for the Demon King of Evil, even if it doesn't stick.
** And speaking of Ganondorf, [[spoiler:after being restored to full power thanks to the aformentioned XanatosGambit,]] Ganondorf heads to Gerudo Desert where he summons Zant and Ghirahim as his followers. The awesome part? Without Ganondorf saying a word, without him having to so much ''glance'' at them, the two ''immediately'' bow to him. And when he finally speaks to them, he only says ''one sentence'' and he has their UndyingLoyalty. In other words, despite Zant and Ghirahim being terribly powerful in their own right, Ganondorf's power so eclipses theirs that they know full well to bow to him. Now ''that'' is ''true'' badassery.

** Then there's their whole VillainTeamUp in general, particularly if you're playing in Free Play mode. [[spoiler:Taking over Hyrule with the three baddest villains in the ''Zelda'' universe at your disposal? VideoGameCrueltyPotential at its finest.]]
** ''Zant'' of all people gets one in the Valley of Seers level. [[spoiler: To elaborate, the three of them are attempting to take the Triforce of Power from Lana, but [[TheCavalry Impa]] has arrived and has [[DoppelgangerAttack made clones of herself]] to distract them. What's Zant's response? To advise Ganondorf to attack Lana and some of the Gorons to draw out the real Impa.]] The awesome part is that it was such a good idea that even ''Ganondorf'' compliments this strategy (And it comes from ''Zant'')! It goes without saying that when the King of Evil's giving you props, you ''know'' you're a badass.

** In that same level, Lana shows just how clever she truly is. [[spoiler: First she draws in Ghirahim and Zant, then traps them in separate keeps. Then, when Zant proposes the above strategy, Lana finds a way to remain untouchable, thwarting it. ''Then'', when Ganondorf fights through a horde of Gorons to fight and defeat Lana, it's revealed to be [[DoppelgangerAttack a magic clone]] made to distract him while the real Lana flees. And ''then'' when Ganondorf catches up to her, she splits herself in two (''three'' in the 3DS version) and Ganondorf has to defeat all of them or else he'll lose if a single one of them escapes.]] It's enough for Ganondorf to start bordering on a VillainousBreakdown.

* Princess Zelda herself can be playable for Cia's final fight[[note]][[spoiler: AND Ganondorf's]][[/note]]. The series has been going on for almost thirty years and the princess it's named after gets a chance to shine as the one who takes out the BigBad. It is ''immensely'' satisfying to finish off [[spoiler:Ganon]] with Zelda's Light Arrow finisher. It took 30 years, but the princess can finally take her kingdom back herself.

* Bought the Wii U version? Oh dear, you don't have the fairy companions or the side stories for the new characters, only gaining new Adventure Mode maps, costumes and characters with the DLC.\\
Bought the 3DS version? Lower quality graphics, no 8-Bit Weapons and no Ganon's Fury mode...\\
Buying the Switch version?... When it says ''Definitive Edition''. It's not kidding, the first trailer confirming the fairy companions ''and'' Ganon's Fury mode are both intact, plus content based on VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild, in the form of the latest Link and Zelda.

** Link's victory animation while using Gauntlets has him tossing the Iron Ball in his hand, the same way an average person might toss a tennis ball or baseball, with no effort. Just to drive home how heavy the Iron Ball is (and, as a result, how absurdly strong Link is with the Gauntlets), he then tosses it a few feet away from him, and the resulting impact launches him a few feet into the air.

* The first stage, we are introduced to Link as but an exceptional soldier of the Hyrulean Army. Impressive, but altogether a mere RedShirt. However, when Cia's army launches its attack, he takes a sword and shield and races out there to help them, where he quickly runs into Volga. Link puts up his best fight, but Volga summarily brings him down. Impa, the Captain of the army and far higher than Link is, emerges to defend him, to which Volga responds by engulfing her in a wave of deadly flame...but, at the very last second, Link gets back up and puts himself between her and harm's way. A golden light fills the area, and cue in the ''Legend of Zelda'' theme as this selfless bravery awakens the Hero within, the crest of Courage appearing on Link's left hand.
