Many of the items, enemies, quest rules, DMap Mechanics, Screen Flags, etc. in Zelda Classic and ZQuest are references to many of the games in the Legend of Zelda series, including the two Japan only BS Zelda games. We will not be covering any information about any other spin-off titles in the Zelda Series, including Link's Crossbow Training, Hyrule Warriors, the Tingle Series, and the infamous CD-i Zelda games, as there are no references to them in Zelda Classic.
