* In the first quest, [=NPCs=] can do annoyhing things like take your money for breaking into their houses ("Pay me for the door repair."), trick you into paying a lot of money for nothing ("Pay me and I'll talk." "Boy, you're rich!") or run shady gambling schemes ("Let's play money making game."), but never harm you in direct ways unless you provoke them by hitting them. In the Second Quest, however, there are outright malicious [=NPCs=] in dungeons who threaten "Leave your life or money." Got 50 Rupees? You're fine. No? Assuming you don't just reload your file, you lose a heart container [[PermanentlyMissableContent for the rest of the game]].

* Yuu Mishouzaki's ''Zelda'' [[http://www.glitterberri.com/the-legend-of-zelda/mishouzaki-manga/part-1/ manga]] is notable for its many interesting changes to the source material--unfortunately, one of those changes is [[http://www.glitterberri.com/content/zelda_series/loz/manga/012.jpg the manner in which Ganon is depicted]]. Originally, he was a giant blue pig; here, he's a razor-fanged, bloodshot-eyed, practically-unstoppable [[EldritchAbomination abomination unto nature]]. That image in the link? That's taken from him looming over the first Princess Zelda [[spoiler: right before he kills her]], and he utterly ''dwarfs'' her. And the demons that he leads? They all share those characteristics. ''All of them.''

* For arachnophobes, [[GiantSpider the Skulltullas]] are by nature pure hell. ''Twilight Princess'' was probably the worst they got, but they were still plenty creepy in other 3D games like ''Ocarina of Time'' and ''Majora's Mask'', where they fall on top of you out of nowhere much more often then they do in ''Twilight Princess''. And there's also those gold Skulltulas with super-creepy sounds and movements.

* [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness If you're coming from later games]], it may not only seem odd that this game has no towns, but straight up horrifying if you think about it: All of the [=NPCs=] are hiding in caves, some of which have been camoflauged, or in dungeons. In spite of Hyrule being officially a ''kingdom'', it's a very, ''very'' barren one, [[DeathWorld with most intelligent life in it consisting of monsters]]. Was Ganon's invasion of Hyrule ''that'' thorough? And given the complete lack of infrastructure other than dungeons, caves, a few tunnels, and a graveyard, just how long has he had the land under his rule?

Yeah, this turned out to only be a small neck of the land as shown in [[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink the sequel]], but if you were playing this game in 1986 without that retcon in place, you'd think that you were exploring the site of a long-gone civilization.
