  • No Backwards Compatibility in the Future: Incompatible OSes have rendered the only official release unplayable without a phone that hasn't been updated in some time, meaning the only way to play it in English is, once again, piracy.
  • Urban Legend of Zelda: There was a rumor about a sadistic Easter Egg in the game that resetting the game had a one-in-whatever chance of bringing up a screen that made an ungodly buzzing noise and filled the screen with a phrase that could be interpreted as either "Turn it off immediately" or "Kill yourself". The game is so rife with disturbing imagery that most players believed it. This rumor was so prolific that it took a member of Aeon Genesis, the group who fan translated the SNES version of the game, Gideon Zhi, admitting that there was no such code embedded in the game before people started realizing that it was just a rumor.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The artbook had designs of demons that did not make the final cut.
    • Originally the game was only meant to start in Tokyo and then to take place on a global scale before ending in Israel.

How well does it match the trope?
