Mastered! One of the best Games Eva! Overall a really easy Set. OoT was harder. Maybe a Revision in the Future? :-D

I submitted a Bonus set with some hard achievements and easter egg achievements that JAM will be reviewing and publishing since I'm retired.

Shouldn’t a lot of these be marked with (M) as they’re no harm bosses? Or something I’m not remembering?

Mastered!

@Kamikoopa right now marking missable as [m] is optional and decided by the developers whether they want it to be included with their achievement set or not but you are correct yes, all damageless bosses aside from Ganon are missable.

I've apparently never posted it here but for the people interested, an achievement guide for this game is available over at the RetroAchievements GitHub wiki! https://github.com/RetroAchievements/guides/wiki/The-Legend-of-Zelda,-A-Link-to-the-Past-(SNES)

I just so happen to be (currently) ranked 355 on the site while playing game ID 355. Incidentally, on most other websites my name includes the numbers 355. So that's a thing.

The icon is from the Japanese box art of the game (Kamigami no Triforce for the Super famicom).

Pretty sure the artwork in the icon is in the game's english manual too.
