Real Name: Ganon
Search for 'Ganondorf' on Amazon

Ganon (ガノン?), anglicized Gannon in early Japanese materials, and also known as Ganondorf (ガノンドロフ Ganondorofu?), is a fictional character who is the primary antagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. He is the final boss of most games in the series. He was first given a back-story in A Link to the Past. The English version of the A Link to the Past instruction manual adds the surname Dragmire and the alias "Mandrag Ganon," which means "Ganon of the Enchanted Thieves."[1]
In the games, Ganondorf is the archenemy of Link and the leader of the Gerudo, a race of desert brigands, until he embarks on an evil quest to conquer the kingdom of Hyrule, and seeks godlike power in facilitate this.[nb 1][2][3][4][nb 2][5] His specific motives vary from game to game, but most often they include capturing Princess Zelda and planning to achieve the domination of Hyrule (and presumably the world beyond it). To this end, he seeks the full Triforce, a powerful magical relic, which will grant whatever wish the bearer desires, and usually manipulates several other villains to accomplish his plans and ambitions. In most games he already possesses the Triforce of Power, which gives him godlike strength and boundless mystical power and makes him invulnerable to all but the most powerful holy weapons such as the Master Sword. However, Ganondorf's lust for power can never be satisfied, and he seeks the complete relic to grant his wish of world domination.
In general, Ganon has been well received by critics and fans. Ganon was the runner-up in GameFAQs' "Got Villains?" Character Battle, losing in the final to Final Fantasy's Sephiroth.
