There are many brilliantly designed, dynamic boss encounters in the Zelda franchise. When discussing Zelda boss battles, however, no enemy can quite hold a light to Link’s arch nemesis and the third piece of the Triforce, Ganondorf. The principle antagonist of the entire Legend of Zelda franchise, the Gerudo king Ganondorf, or, in his beast form, Ganon, is one of the most iconic villains in video game history, perhaps second only to Bowser of the Mario series. No title quite captures the menace of the wielder of the Triforce of Power quite like Twilight Princess. By revisiting and revising familiar mechanics from the series’ history, while implementing new and unexpected twists and turns throughout, the final encounter with The Great King of Evil in Twilight Princess remains one of the most memorable in Zelda history.
