    1. Getting sent back to the start anytime you "Game Over."

    2. Getting stuck between the 8-bit nightmare that is the Blue Fokkas.

    3. Having to trek back upstairs every time you get pushed off the Moldorm platform.


    4. Realizing you have to beat the whole game without saving.

    5. Punching your Gameboy when you die.

    6. Hitting every single button in the process.

    7. Discovering there is actually a way to save the game.

    22. Trying to do all the steps to get the couple's mask within the three-day cycle.

    23. Trying to get literally anything done within the three-day cycle.

    24. Realizing the Couple's Mask does nothing.

    34. Then getting enough to get Hero Keys.

    35. Getting reminded how much each rupee is worth every single time you pick up a rupee.

    36. Accidentally hitting "no" when you mean, "Yes, I did understand the saga you just made me read."
