Which is it?



It could be primarily because my first Zelda game was The Wind Waker, which goes with "Big Key", but I just think "Big Key" is a more appropriate term, if you compare it to "Small Key", after all...Plus, "Big Key" did technically come first, in A Link to the Past. But then Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask switched it to "Boss Key", and the games have been flip-flopping ever since.

I get the feeling most people subconsciously think of it as a boss key, nonetheless. And I won't lie and say I don't fall victim to that myself, but I do think, if that's what the game goes with, they could at least change "Small Key" to just be "Key" if there's not going to be a connection.

Nope. Small keys somtimes appear inside the shrines, but Big/Boss keys don't appear at all.
