This game features "Hero Heart Fragments" that can increase the player's maximum energy when four are collected. This is clearly a reference to the Zelda series, that has Pieces of Heart serving the same purpose.

Another reference is when the supporting robot P-Star first mentions the secret entrances to Kahkoo-regah, he says "It's a secret to everybody" quoting the Friendly Moblin's line from The Legend of Zelda.

Additionally Operation 005 of the game takes place in "The Lost City of Lowrule", a play-on-words of Hyrule. Coincidentally, Lorule is also the name of the alternate Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Also if the player slices all of the grass in the first level of Operation 005 they earn an achievement.


The creators of The Wonderful 101 held no right over Nintendo's Zelda, but they only included minor references to the series.
