Ganondorf is the main antanogist of the Zelda series. He is known as a demon thief of the Gerudo. One male is born in Gerudo every 100 years. In Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf is shown in Link's dream stealing Zelda. He is trying to get the Ocarina of Time so that he could open the path to the Sacred Realm. Zelda entrusts the ocarina to Link. Link accidentally opens the Sacred Realm for him. When Ganondorf tried to retrieve the Triforce it became three pieces and he only got the Triforce of Power. Hyrule became a land of darkness, but Link eventually saves it and defeats Ganondorf 's beast form.
In Twilight Princess, Ganondorf is banished into the world of Twilight. It is here that Zant thinks of Ganondorf as his god. He possesses Zelda, turns into a beast, gets on his horse, and then finally battles you sword to sword.
Ganondorf also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl serving the Subspace Army. He is later turned into a trophy. Later, he is revived by Link and Zelda if you rescue them with Kirby.
