Other mistake: One of the most notorious bits of dialogue from the game who became part of pop culture is the character in Ruto that tells link "I am Error." Since it stands out as a strange name, it is often believed to be a mistranslation, but it's actually correct, and the mistranslation lies in another character of similar appearance near Saria who tells Link "Bagu is my name. Show my note to the River Man." He is supposed to be named Bug, not Bagu, to make a pair; Bug and Error.

Continuity mistake: The game begins and ends in the same room, with the sleeping princess Zelda. There is a difference though: in the beginning she is on a bed sided by 2 braziers, which are gone in the ending - that's because they are an addition for the NES version. The 'in-game' version of the room was extended with columns all the way, and added those braziers. The ending loads the original Famicom Disk System version of the room, without them.
