The cry that Chuchus make during battle in this game is actually an argument between two Japanese men that has been sped up and then played in reverse. At the start, a man says "At least I'm not balding", and the other man insults him back, saying "At least I don't look like a monster!"
After the first trailer for The Wind Waker was released, many Zelda fans criticized the game for being too cartoonish, seeing as how footage of Link battling Ganondorf from SpaceWorld 2000 portrayed a more realistic and mature Zelda game.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker had a somewhat rushed production that required the team to cut several dungeons they planned to include. This influenced the whole Nayru's Pearl arc of the game; turns out that Greatfish Isle, where the Pearl and the dungeon containing it would have been located, has been torn apart by Ganondorf by the time you reach it, and locating the Pearl requires you to instead explore the previously-visited Windfall and Outset Islands.
The scene where Link jumps on a chandelier in the E3 announcement trailer for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was animated specifically for the trailer. The chandelier exists in the game files but isn't a solid model.
In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, one Pro-Action Replay cheat code enables the player to hold a button to levitate. This can be done indefinitely (unless you crash the game). When climbing Dragon Roost Mountain, the player will pass through several doors that actually load new maps at the top of the mountain. Thus, if the player levitates up to the top of Dragon Roost Mountain from the overworld map, they'll find that the top of the Mountain isn't actually animated at all from above, and it's just a hollow, glitchy tube that allows the player to see all the way through to the ocean.

The statues of the goddesses seen on the Triangle Islands resemble several Pikmin from the series of the same name. Nayru's statue, the blue one, has a thin mouth like the blue Pikmin; Farore's statue, the yellow-green one, has ears like the yellow Pikmin; and Din's statue, the red one, has a nose like the red Pikmin.
