In the original Zelda things were wildly different on your second playthough. I always wanted to but never managed to keep a NES/Zelda cartridge/battery long enough to go far enough past a 2nd playthough to look for more cool changes.

Did I miss anything?

I could swear before I was old enough to really remember I saw something before I got the NES or Zelda at someone's house that I never found playing it through about 2.5 playthroughs.

    At least in the NES version, you can name your character Zelda, and start immediately at the second quest, without having to beat the first quest. – Adeese May 30 '11 at 17:43
  • To skip to the "Second Quest" immediately, you need to name your file "ZEDA" (all capitals is required!) – Bing May 3 '15 at 9:46

No. To my knowledge, the third playthrough is identical to the second.

The exception is if you're playing the PC clone Zelda Classic, which does indeed have a third quest.
