** Stuck in the Water Temple? Did you remember to check ''behind'' the chest that contained the Longshot? There's a Song of Time block lodged in the floor there, which, when dispelled, opens up a secret passage.
** Speaking of the Water Temple, when you raise the water in the central tower, don't forget to sink down to the bottom to get to the hidden basement floor (and the mandatory key that's hidden there.)

Added DiffLines:


* SuperDrowningSkills: Averted for Link, as he doesn't need the Flippers in this game. However, some enemies, such as Stalchildren, will be destroyed the moment they go into deep water.


''Ocarina of Time'' is the fifth entry in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, originally released for the Nintendo 64. It is the first 3D game in the series and the first [[UsefulNotes/TheFifthGenerationOfConsoleVideoGames Fifth Generation]] title, and it set the standard for all the later games in the series, with its then-unheard of style of cinematic presentation and introduction of many mainstay elements of the franchise.

''Ocarina of Time'' is the fifth entry in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, originally released for the Nintendo 64.64 in November, 1998.

The game had a [[VideoGameRemake remake]] produced by Grezzo for the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS, titled ''The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D'', which updated the visuals and controls, but left the story, music[[note]]save for a newly orchestrated piece over the porting team's half of the end credits[[/note]], world, and even some of the [[AscendedGlitch glitches and bugs]] intact. The ''Master Quest'' version of dungeons was also an unlockable in the 3DS remake[[note]] It's unlocked once one game of classic ''Ocarina of Time'' is completed and Ganon is defeated [[/note]]- this time adding extra twists by flipping the entire game world horizontally in the tradition of the Wii version of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', but also doubling the damage Link takes from enemies and obstacles.

Added DiffLines:

* PaintingTheMedium: Zelda's Lullaby is the song of Hyrule's Royal Family, and must be played at Triforce symbols around the game to solve puzzles. The notes of the song form a Triforce on the musical staff, and the buttons to play it on the 3DS version are also in a triangle.


* NiceJobFixingItVillain: We can't believe we're saying this, but thanks for being a prick and not letting us see the Great Deku Tree without a sword and shield, Mido! While Mido was doing it just to be a pest to Link and bar his way like a schoolyard bully, the sword and shield ''do'' turn out to be necessary both to kill the Deku Babas on the way to the Great Deku Tree and to kill the enemies inside of the Great Deku Tree.

* VillainousBadlandHeroicArcadia: Ganondorf hails from the harsh Gerudo Desert, while Link spent his whole life in the idyllic - albeit somewhat muted -- Kokiri forest. Sure enough, when Ganondorf takes over Hyrule, it turns into a wasteland of death. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'': Ganondorf admits that his initial reason for wanting to conquer Hyrule was the the land was green and fertile with winds that brought life while in the desert the wind brought nothing but death.



** The King is mentioned in the cutscene where you meet Zelda for the first time and later by Darunia (who refers to him as his "sworn brother".) The soldier in the Back Alley tells Link that Ganondorf betrayed the King. He's never mentioned after, not even in the context of what happened to him when Ganon took over.
*** Akira Himekawa decided that Ganondorf killed the King in his coup d'état. Considering that's what Agahnim did in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast his gig]], it's a relatively safe bet.

Added DiffLines:

* CompanyCrossReferences: There are several references to ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''. For example, Malon and Talon have brooches of Bowser's head, and portraits of Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, and Bowser can be found in the Castle Courtyard.

* ContinuitySnarl: The game itself is possibly the biggest retcon in the franchise, and one that greatly affects the whole timeline. The backstory of ''Videogame/ALinkToThePast'' establishes that Ganondorf got the whole Triforce and that the Master Sword remained unused until the arrival of Link, who is implied to be the very first incarnation of the character. ''Ocarina of Time'' is based on that backstory but introduces a predecessor Link who did wield the Master Sword, and ends with Ganondorf being sealed away with only the Triforce of Power in his possession. The incompatible nature only got worse when new Zelda games such ''Videogame/TheWindWaker'' and ''Videogame/TwilightPrincess'' are established as direct sequels to ''Ocarina of Time'' but diverts further away from the setting of ''A Link to the Past'' and the NES games. It's only when Nintendo creates an AlternateTimeline where the Hero of Time is defeated that ''Ocarina of Time'' is finally reconnected to ''A Link to the Past'' as the prequel it was originally intended to be.
