15Transform Into A Painting

via technobuffalo.com

Nintendo tries to differentiate each Zelda game by introducing some new gimmick or mechanic each time. Twilight Princess had Link transform into a wolf, Majora's Mask had Link transform into everything, and Wind Waker had the whole seven seas thing going for it. In A Link Between Worlds, Link is

cursed by Yuga and can, from that point, transform into a painting at will.

While this seems extremely pointless, this new form allows Link to traverse certain gaps and reach certain areas that he couldn't before. It also enables him to travel to the mirror dimension of Lorule. While not the most exciting thing on paper, Link's transformation into a painting led to some creative dungeons and overworld design in A Link Between Worlds. And to think that the game was almost a remake of A Link To the Past.
