Ganondorf (Ocarina of Time)
My only mistake was to slightly underestimate the power of this kid... No... it was not the kid's power I misjudged, it was the power of the Triforce of Courage! But, with the Triforce of Wisdom that Zelda has... When I obtain these two Triforces... Then, I will become the true ruler of the world!!

WW Ganondorf
My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world. And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came, the wind carried the same thing... Death. But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin. I coveted that wind, I suppose.

Your people have long amused me, Midna. To defy the gods with such petty magic, only to be cast aside...How very pathetic. Pathetic as they were, though, they served me well. Their anguish was my nourishment. Their hatred bled across the void and awakened me. I drew deep of it and grew strong again. Your people had some skill, to be sure...but they lacked true power. The kind of absolute power that those chosen by the gods wield. He who wields such power would make a suitable king for this world, don't you think?

I never imagined a boy like you could give me so much trouble. It's unbelievable that you defeated my alter ego, Agahnim the Dark Wizard, twice! But I will never give you the Triforce. I will destroy you and make my wish to conquer both Light and Dark Worlds come true without delay.

To know Calamity Ganon's true form, one must know the story from an age long past. The demon king was born into this kingdom, but his transformation into Malice created the horror you see now. Stories of Ganon were passed from generation to generation in the form of legends and fairy tales. But there was also...a prophecy. "The signs of a resurrection of Calamity Ganon are clear. And the power to oppose it lies dormant beneath the ground."
~ King Rhoam describing Calamity Ganon

Ganon1
The source of the darkness that has appeared time and again throughout Hyrule's history. It's been called many names, from "Great King of Evil" to "Calamity." Hibernating within a cocoon, it attempted to regenerate a physical form after Link awoke but was forced to confront him in an incomplete state.
~ The Hyrule Compendiums description of Calamity Ganon

Ganon2
After Ganon was defeated by Link, the remaining Malice pulled itself together to form this bestial creature. Its appearance and fiendish magic earned it the name of Dark Beast. This form is considered to be Ganon's original, although in this state, his awareness has been consumed entirely by Malice, and all he knows is a desire to rampage and destroy.

Summary

Ganon, also commonly known by his original Gerudo form Ganondorf, is the main antagonist of The Legend of Zelda series. Ganon is often in possession of the Triforce of Power, a piece of the golden power imbued with the essence of Din, which grants him godlike strength and magical power as well as makes him immortal, making him one of the greatest threats to not only the kingdom of Hyrule but also the rest of the world. As the manifestation of the Demon Tribe's hatred for the gods and the direct reincarnation of the Demon King Demise himself, Ganon can never truly be destroyed and will eternally resurface in some form to pursue his goals of world domination.

The original Ganondorf was born as the sole male of the Gerudo tribe in a hundred years and due to tradition was made their king. Raised by the twin witches Koume and Kotake, Ganondorf grew into a powerful and feared warlock who desired to expand his kingdom beyond the sands of the desert and sought after the Triforce to achieve his ambition. Depending on the timeline he either sneaks into the Sacred Realm after the child Hero of Time unlocks the Door of Time, receiving the Triforce of Power after failing to obtain the completed Triforce due to his imbalanced heart, or he is sentenced to execution for his crimes and by a "divine prank" receives the Triforce of Power just before he succumbed to his fatal wounds.

At some point, Ganon, who was becoming increasingly more furious with each defeat, gives up on world conquest and instead focuses his efforts on completely destroying it instead, becoming more of a force of nature than a person, and was henceforth known as the Calamity Ganon.

Resistance to Sealing (Zelda couldn't properly seal him away prior to the events of Breath of the Wild, however, he was still limited and tethered to Hyrule castle for 100 years) and Existence Erasure (Ancient Arrows only damage him as opposed to erasing him). As the Dark Beast Ganon, he gains Large Size (Type 1), Breath Attack, and Resistance to Time Stop (Zelda states that due to his body becoming entirely made up of Malice none of Links attacks will work on him, including his Stasis Rune which has no effect on Ganon should Link try it)

Attack Potency: Multi-Continent level (Immensely superior to the young Hero of Time and knocked him down with a single casual blast, was able to fight against the Hero of Winds who wielded the Master Sword) | At least Large Planet level (Stopped the planets rotation to create an endless night across the Great Sea, should likely be comparable to his Calamity Ganon incarnation due to his possession of the Triforce of Power), likely Large Star level (Superior to Zant who likely warped the entire Twilight Realm, and even as a soul he overpowered Fused Shadow Midna), several of his abilities ignore durability | Universe level, likely Universe level+ (Possesses and is empowered by the completed Triforce, meaning he should be superior to an unrestricted Majora), several of his abilities ignore durability | Multi-Continent level (Stronger than Twinrova who possesses the combined power of Koume and Kotake, and was stated to be powerful enough to destroy Hyrule) | At least Large Planet level (Even while being suppressed by Zelda his soul can move the moon closer to the planet and back to its proper orbit at high speeds), higher as the Dark Beast Ganon (Immensely stronger than before to an unknown degree), several of his abilities ignore durability

Lifting Strength: Class T (Far superior to monsters like Gohma, who can casually lift up and move large chunks of bedrock, should be no weaker than his botched resurrection state) | Class E (Physically stronger than the Hero of Time who has the power of the Golden Gauntlets), Class Z via Telekinesis (Was able to causally keep his castle and a small island floating in the air, and his telekinetic abilities should be comparable to his Calamity Ganon incarnation) | At least Class E (Immensely stronger than before), at least Class Z via Telekinesis | Class T (Far stronger than the likes of Onox and Veran) | Class E (Stronger than his botched resurrection state), higher as the Dark Beast Ganon, Class Z via Telekinesis (Capable of easily moving the moon)

Striking Strength: Multi-Continent Class | At least Large Planet Class, likely Large Star Class | Universal, likely Universal+ | Multi-Continent Class | At least Large Planet Class, higher as the Dark Beast Ganon

Durability: Multi-Continent level (Wasn't threatened at all by the child Hero of Time, took strikes from the Master Sword) | At least Large Planet level, likely Large Star level (Capable of tanking his own magical attacks) | Universe level, likely Universe level+ (Empowered by the completed Triforce, should be far more durable than the likes of Demise and an unrestricted Majora) | Multi-Continent level (Able to trade blows with Link who overpowered Twinrova) | At least Large Planet level (Can tank his own attacks), At least Large Planet level, likely Large Star level as the Dark Beast Ganon (Completely unaffected by the Light Arrows given to Link by Zelda, only being harmed by them when Zelda creates weak spots on his body)

Stamina: High, should scale to other well-trained Gerudo who can fight with and train for long periods of time without fatigue | Incredibly high, he can continually battle with various incarnations of Link while ignoring and laughing off fatal wounds and showing no signs of tiring and kept his castle floating dozens, if not hundreds, of feet in the air for several years nonstop with his magic and wasn't fatigued by this in the slightest | Incredibly high | Very high | Incredibly high, wasn't worn out in the slightest by his 100 year-long struggle with Zelda

Range: Standard to Extended melee range (He's a 7'6 tall man who has often wielded swords the size of normal men), Tens of kilometers with Magic (Can create storms reaching out to the horizon), Cross-Universal with Dimensional Travel and BFR | Physically the same range as before (Although his beast form would have extended melee range by virtue of size). At least planetary with magic (Cursed the entire Great Sea with an endless night and rainfall, could sense and watch Links battle with Phantom Ganon despite being on the opposite side of Hyrule, while dead his heart caused chaos across Hyrule, and he should have comparable range to his Calamity Ganon incarnation), likely interplanetary (Should have superior range to Zant), Cross-Universal with Dimensional Travel and BFR (He can easily travel between the Light World and the Dark World, and he can send his targets into the Dark World or banish them to the gap between dimensions) | Extended melee range (His size alone warrants this, carries a trident almost as large as himself), interplanetary with magic and reality warping (Able to affect the entire Sacred Realm), Cross-Universal with Dimensional Travel and BFR | Extended melee range (Via his size alone, his trident is almost as large as himself), Thousands of kilometers with Magic (Should have superior range to the likes of General Onox), Cross-Universal with Dimensional Travel and BFR | Tens of meters in all his forms (His soul is comparable in size to large portions of Hyrule castle, his physical form is well over triple the size of grown men and wields weapons comparable in size to himself, and his Dark Beast form is the size of a building, and dwarfs the likes of Link dozens of times over), Planetary with magic (Able to affect the moon and pull it over 100,000 kilometres closer to the planet), Cross-Universal with Dimensional Travel and BFR

Standard Equipment:

  • Triforce of Power: A piece of the golden power created by the Golden Goddesses that he possesses in most of his incarnations, the Triforce of Power enhances his physical and magical strength to godlike levels, making him nearly invulnerable to most forms of damage in the Zelda series and granting him immortality. It also protects him from the effects of his own corruption magic.

Optional Equipment:

  • Dual Blades: A pair of swords that Ganon keeps hidden in his selves during the events of the Wind Waker. Both blades are over a foot long greatly increasing his melee range and are crafted well enough to even clash with the Master Sword.
  • Sword of Six Sages: A blade originally used to try and kill Ganon during his execution, he tore it out of his own chest and kept it as his own during the events of Twilight Princess. Being comparable in size to grown men it gives him much more reach in close quarters combat and the sword also possesses the ability to somewhat negate regenerative powers as it left a massive wound across Ganon's chest that he was never able to heal from.

Intelligence: Genius. Despite his reputation as a thief and being known by most of the races of Hyrule to have placed curses on people to get his way he still gained and maintained the trust of the king of Hyrule while also running his own country in the desert to the west, managed to deduce that Link held the means to open the Door of Time with what little interaction he had with him and secretly followed him into the Temple of Time in order to enter the Sacred Realm and claim the Triforce, used Zants insanity and desperation to his advantage by falsely posing as a god and granting him a portion of his power in order to try and create a new world by merging the Twilight realm with Hyrule and escape his imprisonment in the Twilight realm in the process, and is a highly skilled warrior who can match various incarnations of Link in swordsmanship. However, in games such as the original Legend of Zelda his intelligence has devolved to below-average levels, although he can still organize and command an army of monsters | Genius | Genius. Even more intelligent than before due to his possession of the Triforce of Wisdom, orchestrated a plan to free himself and his army from the Dark World by creating an avatar of himself to gain the trust of the people of Hyrule and use the 7 Maidens as a sacrifice to break the Wise Men's seal keeping him in the Dark World | Below Average, due to the ritual to resurrect him being botched he came back in an incomplete state barely able to form sentences, but he still retains some knowledge on his magic and fighting skills | Likely still Genius. He expected Hyrule to use the Divine Beasts and Guardians against him and launched a preventive attack where he corrupted and took control of the Guardians, also created and out four very powerful phantoms to the Divine Beasts to corrupt the large machines and they were successful in killing the Champions who piloted them, made several monsters repeatedly stronger in order to slow down Link and buy more time for his resurrection. Animalistic as the Dark Beast Ganon, has been driven to madness in this form and only knows a desire to attack and destroy anything he sees, and only attacks his opponent via a large beam of Malice

Weaknesses: He is extremely arrogant and is sometimes blind to any threats to himself, which almost led to his death at the hands of the sages prior to the events of Twilight Princess, his invisibility technique only affects his body while leaving his magic visible and if he gets hit he unwillingly becomes visible again, his intangibility only works if he can sustain his darkness and a significant amount of light will force him to become tangible again, and his Illusionary copies will disappear if he takes fatal damage | Possesses the same weaknesses as before, he is weak to holy and light based magic and weapons which can either stun him or heavily damage him | Possesses the same weaknesses as before | Possesses the same weaknesses as before, is highly unintelligent | His regeneration needs time in order for him to create an ideal body and regenerating too quickly can drive him insane, he is weak to holy weapons and magic, he doesn't appear to possess the ability to fly in his incomplete and Dark Beast states, and his Dark Beast form is incredibly sluggish and uses the same attack over and over again

Note: Ganon's twilight magic abilities and the Sword of Six Sages only apply to him during the events of Twilight Princess, as such if his Triforce of Power key is used in a vs thread it should be specified if it's his Twilight Princess incarnation or not.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Ganondorf can unleash waves of darkness at his opponents.
  • Ganondorf can shoot bolts of energy at his opponent and engage in Dead Mans Volley.
  • Ganon can create and absorb a large energy ball before releasing several homing shots.
  • Agahnim can pull people into the Dark World with him.
  • Ganon can create portals to banish his targets to the gap between dimensions.
  • Ganon can create a ring of fireballs that turn into blazing bats that fly towards his opponent.
  • Ganon can create a single blazing bat that encircles the surrounding area.
  • Ganon can quickly send out a blazing bat towards his opponent.
  • Ganon charging forward with his summoned spectral knights.
  • Ganon can create white orbs that summon his spectral knights to battle.
  • Ganondorf can cast supernatural darkness to make himself invisible and intangible.
  • Agahnim can create "real" illusions that will fight alongside him.
  • Ganon can warp the surrounding area into a distorted vortex that inverts his opponents motor functions.
  • Ganon can create a barrier of fire and coat it around his body.
  • Ganon can shoot out a fireball that homes in on his target and explode on impact.
  • Ganon can create several tornadoes that surround his opponent.
  • Ganon can create spears of ice that he will throw at his opponent.
  • Waves of Darkness: Ganon will show off the Triforce of Power before releasing large waves of darkness that stun his opponents and leave them stuck in place. He can also use these waves as an invisible aura around himself that keeps much weaker opponents from physically approaching him.
  • Energy Blast/Dead Man's Volley: Ganon charges up energy in his hand before releasing a bolt of energy at his opponent. There are two variations to this attack, one where he simply shoots a single energy bolt and another where he charges a large ball of energy over his head before absorbing it and shooting out several homing shots. If the opponent is able to reflect the attack they will enter a "game" of Dead Mans Volley where Ganon will continuously reflect the attack back until either he or his opponent dodge or fail to reflect the attack.
  • Illusionary Doppelgangers: Ganon will create a pair of illusions of himself that possesses his abilities, despite the copies being illusions they can physically damage the damage with their attacks.
  • Blazing Bats: Ganon creates a ring of several fireballs around himself that he can expand outwards to attack his opponent, after creating the fireballs he will transform them into flaming bats that will then fly towards his opponent while leaving a trail of fire behind them. He can also quickly send out a single bat if he so chooses without the need of creating several fireballs.
  • Inversion Room: Ganon will warp the surrounding area into a distorted blue vortex that reverses his opponent's movements, making up-down and left-right as examples of the effects, disorienting them so he can much more easily attack them as they struggle to coordinate their movements.
  • Banishment: Ganon will banish his targets either to the gap between dimensions or into the Dark World, a twisted version of Hyrule that passively transforms any who enter it into a reflection of their heart and mind. The Dark World can also occasionally drive people insane or erase their consciousness if they remain in the realm long enough, and is filled with demons and monsters loyal to Ganon who will attack people on sight (It should be noted the Dark World only exists during the events of A Link to the Past, making BFR to the realm and its effects only applicable to his completed Triforce key)
  • Spectral Knights: Ganon will shoot out several ethereal orbs that summon ghosty knights on horses to aid him in combat, and should any of them be destroyed he can continually summon more to replace them.
  • Technique of Darkness: Using this technique allows Ganon to cover the surrounding area in supernatural darkness that renders him both invisible and intangible, becoming intangible even to Link who can attack and destroy ghosts. However this technique has a major drawback in that a sufficient amount of light will negate the effects of the darkness and forcibly render him tangible and visible once again.
  • Flaming Barrier: Ganon will create a large red hot forcefield around himself by coating his entire body in some kind of fiery substance. The coating greatly boosts his durability and even protects him from holy weapons and attacks.
  • Homing Fireball: Ganon will create a fireball that will home in on his opponent's location. Once it makes contacts with anything solid it erupts into a massive explosion.
  • Tornadoes: Ganon will conjure up several tornados around his opponent.
  • Ice Spears: Ganon will use his ice magic to create massive spears of ice that he will either use for short- or long-range distances, tossing them at his opponent.

  • Ganon turning himself into Twilight particles.
  • Ganon as a swarm of particles entering Zeldas corpse to possess it.
  • Ganon disappearing into the Twilight Realm.
  • Ganon reappearing via a Twilight portal and bullrushing Link and Midna.
  • Ganon making use of several portals to disorient Link.
  • Twilight Deconstruction: Can deconstruct himself into twilight particles granting him a form of intangibility and allowing him to enter the body of others to possess them. He can likely also deconstruct other beings and objects much like Midna can, turning them into twilight particles and sending them to another location.
  • Twilight Portals: Ganon will enter twilight portals and disappear from his opponent's sight before emerging from another portal in an attempt to take them by surprise and bullrush them. He can also create fake portals before he reappears to disorient his foe.

  • Calamity Ganon spreads his Malice and corrupts a Guardian.
  • Dark Beast Ganon shoots out a large beam of Malice.
  • Malice Possession Calamity Ganon will shoot out large amounts of his Malice, that upon contact will corrupt and possess his opponents bringing them under his control, and has been shown to work on the undead and even on machines.
  • Malice Beam: In his Dark Beast Ganon state he can fire massive beams of Malice from his mouth at his opponent. Unfortunately, he has to spend a handful of seconds charging up the attack first before he can fire it.
