* WickedCultured: Ganondorf is evil, but he has cultural flair to his evilness. Dressed in regal robes and retaining his human form for the entire duration of the game, he comes off as unusually civilized compared to his beastly and crude army. Additionally, his speech towards Link contains a poetic flair, especially when he compare Hyrule and Gerudo Desert through the touch of their winds. This is more explicit with the Japanese version, where his monologue style draws from classical poetry and archaic Japanese from the 19th century.

* NayTheist: He acknowledges the existence of the gods of Hyrule, but only so he can curse them for burying Hyrule under the sea. [[spoiler:Even the Triforce, the thing that Ganondorf desires the most, is not safe this vengeful mindset as Ganondorf tries to kill Link and Zelda in a last spiteful attempt to deny the wish-granting relic of the gods from granting King Daphnes' wish.]]

%%* TheDragon: To Ganondorf.

to:

%%* * TheDragon: To Ganondorf.Ganondorf. While the other bosses (except Gohdan) are always the minions of Ganon, the Helmroc King stands out for being the catalyst of Link's adventure (for kidnapping Ayrll) and directly serves under Ganondorf rather than being positioned in a secluded area.



%%* BigBad:

to:

%%* BigBad:* BigBad: As per usual. He is the reason why the Helmroc King has been kidnapping young girls with pointy ears, and much of Link's quest is undoing Ganondorf's machinations and preventing the King of Evil from assembling the Triforce to resurrect Hyrule in his own image.



%%* FreudianExcuse:

to:

%%* FreudianExcuse:* FreudianExcuse: In a surprising form of CharacterDevelopment, Ganondorf reveals that his desire for the Triforce and Hyrule is not just mere greed for power. He explains that his home country was a DeathWorld while Hyrule was a paradise beyond his imagining, symbolized by the differences of their winds. Even though Ganondorf still intends to rule this paradise under a reign of darkness and terror, his solemn expression suggests there may be some truth in his words.



%%* GeniusBruiser:

to:

%%* * GeniusBruiser: Ganondorf is just as cunning and intelligent as he was back in ''Ocarina of Time'', if not more so. He had [[spoiler:cut off the Master Sword's power to repel evil long before Link would find it]], and only reveals it to the young hero when it was nearly too late. In addition to his powerful dark magic, Ganondorf is also a skilled swordsman with fast reflexes and brute strength, as Link finds out in the final battle.



%%* {{Leitmotif}}: Same one he always had.

to:

%%* * {{Leitmotif}}: Same one he always had.had since ''A Link to the Past''. It is more melancholy and quiet than usual (best heard at Ganon's Tower), reflecting Ganondorf's status as a TragicVillain from the long forgotten era



%%* SealedEvilInACan: Until he got free.

* LastVillainStand: When [[spoiler:Daphnes wishes on the Triforce for Hyrule to be washed away by the Great Sea and for Link and Tetra to have a future, Ganondorf suffers a VillainousBreakdown and starts gleefully LaughingMad before drawing his swords and engaging Link in a final showdown.]]

* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: Implied by the quote above. He initially set out to conquer Hyrule because he envied its idyllic nature while his people lived in a harsh desert... but when he laid hands on the Triforce, seven years later all he'd changed is that now the rest of Hyrule is even worse than the desert while he chased the missing pieces of the Triforce.
