Revealing mistake: After defeating the giant Tin Suits, Link catches Zelda while she's falling from the air. In this shot, you can see where a trap door will open up in the floor below Link. Now, it is pretty normal to see doors or other objects that will move being a slightly lighter color than the surrounding things that are the same color in older cartoons, and that in itself is not a mistake. However, this time it is so blatantly obvious because the lighter area on a gray ground is a light pink.
Continuity mistake: After Zelda touches the first giant Tin Suit statue and it comes to life, she and Link quickly back away from it and then stand their guard. They are standing quite close together. It cuts to a reverse angle just before the Tin Suit kicks Link and they are suddenly further apart from each other.
Continuity mistake: Trying to track down Ganon and King Harkinian, Link and Zelda enter the front area of Ganon's lair. There are 3 giant Tin Suit statues in the opening room. Link and Zelda walk between them and are a good distance from any of them. It cuts to a different angle as they draw near and suddenly they are much closer to the one on the left, Zelda now in arm's distance.
Continuity mistake: The Tin Suits kick the King into a circular room and close a metal door behind him. Then Ganon teleports into the room and the angle changes. When this happens, the door has vanished. The King is also suddenly further back from the center of the room between shots.
Other mistake: In Ganon's lair after he is captured, King Harkinian is standing by two Tin Suits that are guarding him. They have an X shaped red strap thing across their chest. The one on the right has his not completely drawn. The strap that meets towards the middle on the back layer towards his upper right has one of the lines not fully connecting. As the Tin Suit turns a little, it suddenly connects to be complete, but then he turns back and the line is broken again.
Continuity mistake: After Ganon captures King Harkinian, he is seen in his lair gloating over his victory and holding his Unicorn Pegasus. The "Evil Jar" is behind him and the stand is bright orange. It cuts to a close up of Ganon with his horse and the leg of the Evil Jar is still visible, but suddenly changes to a dark brown.
Continuity mistake: Falling to his doom, Link is plummeting face first towards the ground after Ganon zaps the bats that Link was holding onto. The shot just before Zelda saves him again shows him falling face first. But it changes to him hitting the wheelbarrow of hay and suddenly he is falling back first.
Continuity mistake: Link first tries to rescue King Harkinian from Ganon in the beginning of the episode and takes down three of Ganon's bat minions right off with his sword lasers. Then three of the remaining four grab him by the arms. Between shots, the position of the one on the bottom right's hands changes position on Link's arm. Link also changes from looking right to looking left.
Revealing mistake: As it first shows Ganon on his horse with a rope around the king, look closely at his leg. For the first second or two, it is disconnected from his thigh and below the horse's wing. It then suddenly jumps up to where it's supposed to be.
Continuity mistake: After the King gives Link some flowers to help him get Zelda to kiss him, the King wishes him luck and slaps him on the back. This causes Link to lose his balance and fall to swing before he was ready. He shouts and holds out the flowers with his right arm as he falls. The next shot shows him swinging towards Zelda's window, but suddenly both hands are on the rope and the flowers have vanished. Then it cuts again to him swinging though the window and his right arm is extended again holding the flowers.
Continuity mistake: After Link crashes down on Zelda's table, he is lying flat and the window he just came through is right there beside him. But when Zelda leans in during a close up to try and give Link a kiss, it is suddenly just solid wall on that same side of Link.
Continuity mistake: When the King first hands the flowers to Link, the detail on them is not drawn out very much. The peddles and center look like almost one solid pink piece. But a couple shots later, and being from the exact same angle and distance, the details on the flowers as Link holds them is suddenly much clearer. Individual peddles are visible, and the centers are more pronounced.
Continuity mistake: When Link is looking down at Zelda, her larger window is separated into two parts by a column between them. When Link swings in and it shows an interior view of that window, the column is suddenly skinnier. The window itself is also smaller.
Continuity mistake: When Link explains to King Harkinian that he is going to swing into his daughter's window to get her to kiss him, the King tells him he should take flowers. He picks 3 flowers from a nearby flower arrangement. But the 3 flowers he ends up with are much larger than any of the flowers that were in the arrangement.
Continuity mistake: As Link is talking to King Harkinian about giving Zelda flowers so she would kiss him, shots of Zelda through the window show a blue table behind her cot. There is a brown book on it beside a light blue vase. It is slightly difficult to tell, but by judging the thickness of the book, there is only one book there. But when Link swings in and lands on the table, just before the book flies away, you can see it is actually two books stacked on top of each other, and the height of them together is much higher than when seen previously.
Continuity mistake: Link is holding onto a rope and about to swing into Zelda's window. The angle from behind Link shows him holding the rope up high with both hands close together. It then cuts to a front angle as King Harkinian walks up behind him and Link's hands are suddenly spread far apart along the rope, one high by his head, the other lower to his belly.
Continuity mistake: When Link is about to swing in through the window of the tower Zelda is in, there is a blue table next to her cot. But in an earlier shot where Link first sees her through the window, the table is not there. It is not the angle, as it is close enough to her cot in the second shot that it should have been visible in the first.
Continuity mistake: When Link comes out on the balcony and looks down to see Zelda reading, there is a window behind Zelda's head. There are some vines growing up the side of the castle wall towards that window, but in this shot, they are not totally there yet. A few moments later when Link is about to swing in through a different window, that same window is shown again, but this time the vines are very heavy around the base of the window. Then when King Harkinian pats Link on the back real hard and causes him to swing before he is ready, the window is shown again and now the vines are less around the window, but still different from the first time.

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot, the camera is closing in on Hyrule Castle. The crescent moon is large and visible behind the castle. It then cuts to a closer view of one of the towers and suddenly the moon is a slightly different shape, and it appears to be a little smaller.
Continuity mistake: Just before the rope bridge, Link gets into a fight with two centaur like creatures. As he zaps them, one of them drops a magic whistle. There is a shot showing Link by the bridge and Zelda and Zing going on the bridge. You can see a large portion of the ground by Link's feet, and there is no whistle there. It cuts to a close up of Link and he looks down at his feet, bends down and picks up the whistle.
Continuity mistake: Ganon has his minions push King Harkinian into the round room and the door is shut behind him. The King does not move from that spot as Ganon appears and talks him. Ganon vanishes and then the light appears. The King only takes a few steps back and then there is a bird's eye view. Suddenly the King is much further away from the door than he was and is now much closer to the opposite wall.
Continuity mistake: When Link is falling through the air above the castle, he grabs a hold of the legs of two of Ganon's bat like creatures. Between this shot, and the close up immediately following, Link's hands change positions on the creatures' ankles, and his arm and the creatures get closer together.
Factual error: After Ganon captures King Harkinian, he takes him to a circular room and says that Link and Zelda have one hour to surrender the Kingdom of Hyrule and the Triforce of Wisdom or the King will fall a very long time. After he says this, a bright light shines up from the center of the room and begins expanding, it being a hole. However, it is expanding WAY too fast to take an hour to make the King fall to his doom. At the rate of expansion, it would be to the edge of the room in probably just over a minute if not less.
Plot hole: Link goes after Ganon to save the King and winds up hanging on the tail of his Unicorn Pegasus in the air. Zelda was in her room in a high tower when Link used the diving board to get out to an even higher tower. Ganon blasts Link off his horse, and Link begins falling to certain doom towards the castle grounds. But miraculously, Zelda is there with a hay cart and saves him. She was all the way up in her tower and Link wasn't even out of the room for 2 full minutes. Yet somehow she was able to make it all the way down to the castle grounds, grab a hay cart, and be in just the right spot to catch Link.
Continuity mistake: After Link and Zelda hear King Harkinian scream when Ganon attacks, Link throws a broken table at the window and then a dresser to weigh it down to make a diving board. When the dresser is put on it, the board is angled up at 45 degrees and stuck that way. But then Link runs at it and suddenly the board is perfectly horizontal level, even with one side supposedly pinned to the floor by the dresser.
Continuity mistake: When Link hooks a rope to the top of a tower so he can swing in Zelda's room, her father King Harkinian walks up behind him and suggest he take flowers if he wants a kiss. As the King is moving around, during the same shot even, the jewel on his crown keeps fluctuating in size and even move around a little.
Continuity mistake: Link walks out shortly after King Harkinian says his first lines of the episode and talks about how he is still not sure why he is living in the castle. He walks to the edge and sees Zelda and says he is trying to adapt. When he first walks up, he goes to the center of a circular ledge with a wall, and there is an empty plant spot to his left. It cuts to show Zelda in her room reading then back to him saying he is trying to adapt. Suddenly he is much closer to the plant holder near the edge of the circle ledge, and now there is a plant in it.
Audio problem: Right in the beginning, King Harkinian is walking about at night on the wall of his castle. He comments about the night air and how there is nothing like a good meal. During the last half of that, the shot changes to a side view as he walks to the edge and stops. His lips are not moving until he stops and you can see them move when he says the word Meal.
