The Chris Houlihan room (how to get there can be found under the "Cheats" tab) is named after a real-life gamer. In 1990, Nintendo Power held a contest where you had to take a picture of the Warmech boss in Final Fantasy, and send it in. After that, they randomly drew one person to win the grand prize - a cameo appearance in the next Legend of Zelda game.

In the instruction manual of the game's Western release, Ganondorf is given the last name Dragmire. This was the result of Nintendo of America's translation team wanting to make their own contribution to the story. This is the only instance where Ganondorf is given a last name.

During development, inspired by Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, Shigeru Miyamoto wanted to have a number of characters aside from Link that the player could use. He had specifically wanted to do so with the third game in the series ever since the first was released, and wanted Link, a magic user, and a girl (likely a fairy) to be used. This idea was left out during development, keeping the playable characters limited to Link.
