* In thanks for providing flint and saving Isha’s jewelry shop, Cara the assistant jeweler will offer to tell Link various secrets about Isha. One of them is that Isha sleeps in nothing but her “accessories”, to which Cara wonders if she gets cold at night.

* If the player completes the entire Hyrule Compendium, Symin will reward them with the Classified Photo, which is said to be “a photograph of a beautiful young woman of the Sheikah tribe”. The photo cannot actually be seen, but it’s heavily implied to be a picture of [[spoiler:Purah]].


* A literal example: In certain places throughout the world, you can find Koroks, who will give you "Korok seeds" as a reward for finding them. They look like small golden turds, the flavor text mentions their "distinct smell", and Hestu, the lead Korok, is hesitant to discuss what they actually are.

Should the player collect all 900, Hestu will give your their own “seed”, which is far bigger, is said to smell terrible, and is directly modeled after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kin_no_unko Golden Poo]].



* Stay at the Gerudo inn and choose the spa plan. Romah's dialogue and especially the giggling at the end seem to suggest that Link may have gotten [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre more than just a massage]].

* In the game's English manual, the "Fokkeru",enemies in the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Great Palace]] seem to have been misinterpreted as some sort of bizarre alien entity by the artist. If you get a closer look at their in-game sprites, you'll see that they're actually bird-headed [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpies]]... with ''fully exposed breasts''.

* ''[=TriForce=] Heroes'' has the [[FatGirl Stylish Woman]], who comments amorously on Link's attire whenever he tries on a new costume. Her flirts remain innocent enough, for the most part, but then there's the line when he comes out wearing Linebeck's Uniform (which, for reference, allows you to glimpse the contents of unopened treasure chests)

* The mermaid is hiding from you because she's missing her top, which got censored in the American version, changed into a necklace. This is why the narration says [[AllMenArePerverts "L-Lucky!"]] when you find the necklace/top.
* Crazy Tracy sells you potions by ''sensually massaging Link while calling him "big guy" and giggling''. How old Link is in this game is up for speculation, but could be as early as ''preteens''.
** WordOfGod says he's at the very least a teenager, especially since this is ALTTP Link but older.

* The physical appearance of Ruto as an adult and all of the Great Fairies. The fairies are women wearing nothing more than vines and leaves to cover themselves. Some of their positions might be questionable as well. The game developers later were able to change Ruto's design and hide her breasts. The Great Fairies replaced their vines with skimpy leopard skin bikinis.

* To upgrade Link's armor, the Great Fairies (who, for the record, are positively titanic in this game) incorporate various means of flirting with him, culminating in them snatching him up and hugging him close as they retreat beneath the water of their fountains. If that doesn't speak for itself, one of them admits when you first meet her that she was [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller expecting someone bigger]], but that a "slim little lad" like Link will do just fine.

* One 'blink and you'll miss it', The Fairy Queen, who is very wise and repeatedly calls Link child, showing there's a significant ill-defined age gap, says [[NoYay he's her type]]. Link being anywhere between 9 and 12 makes it worse.

* ''Skyward Sword'' has examples as well. This includes Groose getting turned on over the thought that Zelda made the sailcloth, the fact that the sail-cloths description says (just after Zelda has taken it of herself) "...It smells nice too...". WordOfGod confirmed that they tried as best they could to hide in many adult moments while still keeping it an all ages game.
