-->'''Zant:''' You speak of magic? Still your tongue for a moment, whelp, and I will tell you of both magic and the oppression of ages...The people of our tribe...a tribe that mastered the arts of magic...were locked away in this world like insects in a cage. In the shadows we regressed, so much so that we soon knew neither anger nor hatred...nor even the faintest bloom of desire. And all of it was the fault of a useless, do-nothing royal family that had resigned itself to this miserable half-existence! I had served and endured in that depraved household for far too long, my impudent princess. And why, you ask? Because I believed I would be the next to rule our people! THAT is why! But would they acknowledge me as their king? No! And as such, I was denied the magic powers befitting our ruler. It was then, in the thrall of hatred and despair, that I turned my eyes to the heavens...and found a god. My god had only one wish... To merge shadow and light...and make darkness!

Played up to be the BigBad of ''Twilight Princess,'' and later HijackedByGanon. He bonded himself to Ganon, whom he believed to be a god, and used his power to take over the Twilight Realm. At the opening of ''Twilight Princess,'' he is spreading Twilight all over Hyrule, and has invaded Hyrule Castle.

* VillainBall: For most of the game Zant zigzags between being smart and bouts of BondVillainStupidity, but near the end of the game, he ends up holding this as he curses Link to remain as a wolf instead of killing him, and shatters the Mirror of Twilight to stop them from reaching him, but doesn't actively stop them from reclaiming the fragments.
