Link encounters many characters and hazards from the Mario series during his quest.
At the beginning of the game, you meet Tarin, who is based on Mario. According to the Link's Awakening manual, Tarin "loves mushrooms and often goes to the forest in search of some for his dinner."
The Yoshi Doll that you can win in the Trendy Game starts a trading sidequest.
The friendly Chain Chomp is known as "BowWow," which is a direct translation of his Japanese name, "WanWan."
Wart is known by his Japanese name, "Mamu." Mamu helps you out by teaching you The Frog's Song of Soul.
Some side-scrolling areas have stone Bowser heads that you can shoot your hook into.
- Piranha Plant
- Shy Guy (known as "Mask-Mimic")
Link's Awakening also introduces two Thwomp variants called Mega Thwomp and Spiked Thwomp.
