— Ganondorf, in
Ocarina of Time
Ganon, also known equally
Ganondorf, is the main antagonist in
The Legend of Zelda
series. He has been present or at least referred to in each of the first five games in the serial, and has later been in three more afterward. Throughout the series, Ganon has had several deaths, both confirmed, similar in
The Legend of Zelda, and unconfirmed, every bit in
Twilight Princess. Ganon possesses the Triforce of Power, which contains the essence of the Goddess, Din. This divine ability makes Ganon unimaginably potent and grants him boundless ability, making him the largest threat to Hyrule in all its history. As stated in the prophecy of Hyrule, the only one capable of defeating Ganon is the Hero chosen by the Goddesses.
Throughout the games, Ganon's intentions have non changed. Taking the Triforce of Power or earning it and spreading darkness over Hyrule, and he ofttimes kidnaps Zelda in the process. Only his appearance has changed. He is a blue pig-monster in
The Legend of Zelda, while in
Ocarina of Fourth dimension, he is the Rex of the Gerudo and has the power to turn into a giant, green monster. From that point on, Ganondorf tends to refer to the villain's human or Gerudo persona, while Ganon is the abomination, creature or demon version of Ganondorf. In
Ocarina of Time, he is the only Gerudo male built-in in that current century, automatically making him their king.
The Prince of Darkness has 3 "northward"s in his name in the original
The Legend of Zelda, making his name
G-A-Due north-Due north-O-N. Still, in all other games, he is known as
(two "due north"s). Newer fans have used the single "n" form as the catechism one, simply older fans who first played
The Legend of Zelda
back in the twenty-four hours still spell it "Gannon".
Ganondorf has gone from a cold, heartless individual to a sad individual and back again. In older games, he seems to exist bent only on controlling Hyrule, merely in
The Wind Waker, players see a different side of Ganondorf, where he also yearns for the render of Hyrule in its absence. Mostly, though, he seems only aptitude on evil things.
The Legend of Zelda
- Master article: Ganon (The Fable of Zelda)
The Fable of Zelda, the character appears as a giant, humanoid sus scrofa-monster, Ganon. The intro of the game tells of how Ganon
the Triforce of Power, and was rumored to be after the Triforce of Wisdom too.

She then sent Impa, her nursemaid, searching for a hero to collect all eight pieces and destroy Ganon. Impa comes across Link, and asks him to take this quest. This begins the game.
In one case Link has obtained all viii pieces, he tin travel to Expiry Mount and face up Ganon. This battle is quite difficult, every bit for the most part, Ganon will be invisible while shooting fireballs at Link. Ganon can only exist hurt if Link strikes his invisible form with his sword. Once Ganon has been striking, he will be visible for a moment, and and then disappear again. Once Ganon has been hit plenty times with the sword, he will plough a brownish color, which shows he is vulnerable. This is Link'southward opportunity to finish him off with a shot from the Bow using a Silver Arrow. This will defeat Ganon, leaving behind his ashes and the Triforce of Power. Link can now continue into the door directly above and relieve Princess Zelda. If Link does not shoot him with the Silvery Arrow in fourth dimension, Ganon will flash before turning invisible again, returning to full force.
The Run a risk of Link
Ganon does not appear in
The Take a chance of Link, still dead later his defeat at the hands of Link in
The Legend of Zelda.
Despite his physical absence, many of his minions remain and his corrupting influence over Hyrule is still very potent.[two]
Should his followers succeed in defeating Link and sprinkle his claret over the ashes of their master, Ganon will be revived.
Ganon's menacing silhouette simply appears if Link perishes, and presumably completes his conquest and devastation of Hyrule.

They are of grade referring to Ganondorf. They continue to tell Link Ganon'due south backstory, which includes Ganon beingness the leader of a band of thieves who tried to control the Sacred Realm, the location that the Goddesses left the globe.

Ganon is finally confronted by Link at the very end of
Twilight Princess, where he is physically seen for the first time. This confrontation happens at the highest belfry of Hyrule Castle, in the Throne Room. Ganon tin can be found sitting on the throne, with Princess Zelda levitating above him and the sword one time used to execute him in his easily, in the heart of the Triforce statue. He arrogantly introduces himself past welcoming Link and Midna to
Subsequently a dramatic scene of Ganon standing up, Ganon begins his voice communication by making fun of Midna'southward people, saying it was very pathetic that they defied the gods with
magic only to be cast aside.[xix]

bled across the void
and awakened him.
He explains why, in his opinion, Midna'southward people did not succeed; it was because they lacked truthful power.
The kind of power those chosen past the gods wield.
He continues by proverb that someone with the type of power would make a suitable king, while at the same time holding upwards his right paw, which has the marker of the Triforce of Power.

Ganon redirects their attending to Zelda, who he refers to every bit their
He uses Twilight-magic to possess Zelda, and this begins the epic iv-phase boxing that concludes
After Link completes the four and terminal stage of the boxing by stabbing Ganon in the eye of his chest with the Master Sword, Ganon states his final words. He says to Link to non recollect that this is the terminate.
He explains that the history of light and shadow volition be written in claret.
The scenes go on by showing the Triforce of Ability get out Ganon, at which point Zant volition appear, in more of an image rather than physically. He leans his head to the right, with a crack.

Twilight Princess, just it is unconfirmed if he died or not.
Although Ganondorf does not make an appearance, he is mentioned in the prologue, which is a summary of

When Calamity Ganon finally breaks Zelda's seal, its grade is incomplete. It resembles an enormous spider equipped with a diverseness of weapons. It has captivated the ancient Sheikah relics used to attack information technology one hundred years ago, and utilizes a beam attack that is not dissimilar a Guardians light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation."
Ganon appears in
Breath of the Wild, and is referred to as Calamity Ganon. Calamity Ganon is known every bit a primal evil that has appeared throughout the history of Hyrule. Ten thousand years before the story'southward events it appeared and attempted to destroy the world. To deal with this threat, the aboriginal Sheikah race built an ground forces of mechanical constructs chosen Guardians to aid the chosen Hero and Princess. These protectors were aided by four massive creatures known as the Divine Beasts (too congenital by the Sheikah) that were used to weaken Ganon. With this regular army, the Sheikah and Hylians sealed Ganon beneath Hyrule Castle, where information technology lay fallow for a millennium. In jiff of the wild information technology hibernates inside a cocoon, it attempted to regenerate a physical form later link awoke only was forced to confront him in an incomplete state.
A century before the present day, a prophecy was made foretelling the imminent return of Cataclysm Ganon.

The creature fights with a combination of the attacks used by the blights he created long ago, and puts up a considerable fight even against the Master Sword's power.
Once Link destroys this incarnation, Ganon's spirit escapes to Hyrule Field and manifests into its true course: Dark Beast Ganon. A pure embodiment of Malice and Hatred, it is a gigantic boar similar to Ganon's advent in
Twilight Princess. Princess Zelda reveals that Ganon has given up on reincarnation to create this form, intending to release the full force of its wrath upon the earth. Now that it is free from the prison of Hyrule Castle, Ganon will do exactly that unless stopped.
Granting Link with the Bow of Light, Zelda entrusted this chore to Link. While riding on his horse around the Brute's massive figure, Link uses the Bow to pierce several weak points on Ganon's body. He so fires ane concluding shot into the core of beast, which releases Zelda from her century-long imprisonment. As Ganon makes ane last effort to set on, Zelda uses the power of the Triforce to finish it off for good.
While Ganon seemingly disappears subsequently its defeat, Princess Zelda indicates that Ganon is just 'gone for now'. Though Ganon can no longer take a physical grade, it is notwithstanding able to render in the future.
