The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was one of the first games to hit the Wii, as well as one of the last for the GameCube. This game returns to the more realistic style art-wise and also has one of the darker stories of the Zelda series.

Revisional Differences

The initial North American Wii release of the game contains the most glitches. The following examples were fixed for the GameCube release, as well as later Wii versions.

Cannon Glitch

If you go to the cannon room in the basement of the sanctuary in Kakariko when Shad is present, save your game and quit. You will be permanently trapped in the room upon reload, without the ability to warp out or leave. This is because saving and quitting causes Shad to warp to the top of the stairs, but the game still thinks he can see you, preventing you from warping the cannon out and continuing with the plot.

Cave of Ordeals Debug Routine

See the relevant section on the Debug Content page for further details.

Eternal Game Over Glitch

If you try to warp while underwater at the same moment that Link is about to drown, the game gets stuck on the Game Over screen. This bug was fixed in later versions by not allowing you to warp underwater.

Map Glitch

In the early Wii releases of the game, Link's warp sequence could be interrupted by reading something or talking to someone and opening the map at the same time, which caused Link to perform the former action instead of warping. This process disabled most triggers in the map, such as those that determined loading zones and out-of-bounds areas, making various sequence breaks possible. One example was that it became possible to ascend Snowpeak without first obtaining the Reekfish Scent.

In later releases, the glitch was fixed, so disrupting the warp sequence no longer had the aforementioned side-effects.

Players of the original GameCube release were able to disrupt the warp sequence by pressing D-Right and Z at the same time. This caused Midna to pop up and interrupt the warp sequence after a warp was selected. This was later fixed in the Japanese GameCube release.

Snowpeak Glitch

If you stand next to Yeto and hit a specific section of the nearby tree with the Ball and Chain, Yeto initiates a conversation with Link that triggers the snowboard race. The game then freezes right as the race begins.
