Character Description

Ganondorf is the leader of Gerudo Valley, and commonly portrayed as the incarnation of pure evil, greed, and power. He is ruthless, cold, and calculating, seeing all others as either tools to be used or enemies to be destroyed. One of Ganondorf’s most defining traits is his unquenchable lust for power. Ganondorf has black magic powers and is a skillful swordsman. He can also transform into Ganon, a fearsome boar-like beast and stampede anything in his way. Despite being cruel and vicious, Ganondorf shows a code of honour during every of his fights.


Ganondorf is a heavy, fast falling, very slow character with slightly above average range, very strong attacks, including more than one of the strongest attacks in the game. All of Ganondorf's attacks, weather charged or uncharged, are extremely powerful. Almost all of his moves have above average knockback and can KO as well. However, Ganondorf's extreme power and heavy weight are counter-balanced with many factors. Because of his very slow ground speed and slow attacks, he can be a very easy target to hit. He also has very bad air speed and air game. Many of Ganondorf's smash attacks and tilts have been changed, including his Up Special Move.
