    Back with kitty Zelda forever :D
    i played every 3d zelda games except WW and theres something i noticed in botw
    its the first 3d zelda game that uses color-based ennemies.
    noticed the moblin?(i think they are moblin) there are red one and blue ones
    blues are more powerful than red.
    so far ive only seen those as color based ennemies.
    maybe there are more...

    have you liked the system of color based ennemies?
    i think ive seen three color so far, red blue and gold
    many ennemies used them(moblin, araknon, octorok, and more)

    It's more noticable in the old 2D Zeldas. In new ones it's harder to notice because the difficulty is reduced and it's fun to kill mobs with an explosion at the end.

    ah the classic palette swapping (ie: were too lazy to design a new enemy so here is the same exact enemy in a different color and more hp)

    lol, been like this since nes days with Zelda link to the past.
    There was some green ones and blueish purple ones that where harder.

    I think most zelda games have this it might not be there full color but something else on them

    Back in the day that was usually not the case since games were very limited in terms of size and processing.
    Now it is, but it seems to me more of a throwback to the original Zelda, where blue enemies were stronger than their red variants.

    Reminds me of Grandma's Boy where JP steals the idea to change the sprite colors. Can't find a video reference, but it's a great movie!

    The first Zelda ever released had color swaps for enemies...
    Bubbles, Darknut, Goriya (the boomerang throwers), Keese, Lanmola, Leever, Lynel, Molblin, Octoroc, Tektike, Wizzrobe. And probably more

    Hasn't this been the case for like every zelda ever since then?
    Ocarina of time has Ice Keese and Fire Keese. Red and blue Tektike. Red, blue, green, white bubble. etc.

    It seems you didn't

    The Bokoblins in Twilight Princess come in blue and red, with the blue ones having more health.

    Over your shoulder
    No, they were different strengths. The thing is, the difference in strength was not as much with OoT as it was with Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, or Skyward Sword. Based on sword damage numbers, the Master Sword is stronger than the Kokiri sword, so enemies HAD to be stronger to even be the same difficulty, and if you fought the same enemy as Child Link, you were in for a longer fight.

    Not the first, not the last. Every 3D Zelda has done this massively. If you didn't notice the difficulty, it's because you're used to beating them up and aren't noticing it.
