His logic behind this is that if he can't have a big dick, then he shall '''BECOME''' one! To quote the Great Deku Tree, "You see, Ganondorf's penis is so small that the only way to compensate for it would be to obtain the powers of a god and [[WorldDomination conquer the entire kingdom of Hyrule".]]]]
