Ganondorf: My Country by FBK Ganondorf: My Country by FBK

My country lay within a vast desert.
When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world.
And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes.
No matter when it came, the wind carried the same thing.. Death.
But the windes that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin.
I coveted that wind, I suppose.
It can only be called fate.


- Ganondorf; The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (pre final battle)

____________________________
The first time I heard those words it made me feel Ganondorf isnt really evil but misunderstood. And his rough experience in life made him act a little bit berserk.

I was pissed off when they made Ganondorf tragic. He's the king of evil, so he shouldn't have a tragic past. He wasn't tragic in the previous games, so why make him tragic in WW? He was evil in OoT. He ruled Hyrule with an iron fist. Also his surrogate mother is evil. So how can you grow up good, when you were raised by evil? what's worse is that people are saying that he was the good guy and Link was the villain. Turning an evil villain with no back story, into a tragic villain with a sad past is ruining the character. Could you imagin if they did that to Darth Sidious, or Darkseid? I'm really sick an tired of people saying that Ganondorf was tragic, because he shouldn't be. He is evil incarnate. He's a monster. He's ruthless. HE'S THE KING OF FUCKING EVIL!!!!!!

Having a tragic past didn't ruin him at all. A villain who is evil just to be evil...is pathetically generic. Ocarina of Time showed us how far Ganondorf was willing to go to spread the suffering of his people to all of Hyrule. Wind waker had sealed his spot as the ultimate villain. He had a real personality, he showed he was a great character, with a lot of personality and creativity in his design. Evil incarnate? Yes, but he can still have his reasons. Monster? He is a lot more than a monster. Even with a tragic past, he can still be ruthless. And for fuck's sake, he is not a Mary Sue. He is the king of evil, but he can do it HIS way.

This is what disappoints me. In Twilight Princess, Zant is the real villain, and then you get tossed into a new objective to kill Ganondorf, who to TP Link is just a random punk who is brought up in the end. No plot. Literally, it is just "The game designers wanted Ganondorf in this game so I'm not the real final boss! Now go, and beat up the random villain who has nothing to do with this game, if you want to save Hyrule! Trololololol"

The tragic past never made Ganondorf pathetic or weak. It made him a more original character with actual characterization.

Actually... This could give out reason for his evil. He's also a Machiavellic villain, statement that can be backed on the "the end justifies the means" Machiavellan statement. And the "feral" version of him (Ganon) is actually pointed out to be some sort the form of Ganondorf's ego (described in LttP) trastorned by the Triforce. He's still evil in WW, only that he's given a reason to be evil.

I don't like Ganondorf being a tragic villain. I liked him better being evil for the sake of being evil. After all, he's the King of Evil, not the King of Sorrow. This is why I prefer the Child Timeline, because Ganondorf is still evil, and still loving it.

A tragic past does not make him an emo king of sorrow. He can still be a true villain and have a tragic past. He doesn't shed a tear, he doesn't show sorrow when he says it. Unlike certain characters like Cloud, Ganondorf moves on and does what he does best rather than brooding. And unlike Sephiroth A.K.A. Video game Justin Bieber, Ganondorf is not just some random pretty faced generic piece of trash.
Say what you want. The king of evil can be a ruthless monster and more. Hating him for having a tragic past which separates him from every other king of evil just proves you don't even care about the plot. You just like mary sues.

''Don't you see? All of you... YOUR GODS DESTROYED YOU!'' - (My fav quote from WW)
I loved his TP look but his development in the wind waker. I hope he is in skyward sword and that they give him both a great look and excellent character development.

Thanks for the fav, and yeah Ganny is the best in quotes =p
He was the ranked the No.1 Villain of all time on IGN.com <3

WW is an amazing game, the amazing part about it is how Nintendo neglected the graphics to add more story <3

Wind Waker Ganon had developments.
Which covnerted me to an even bigger crazed Ganondorf fangirl.
But he wasted his breath, I hate how Link had little to no reaction to this development.
Wait-Link has little or no reaction to ANYTHING.

I so agree with bot both of you.

WW Ganon was what converted me into a Ganon fangirl.
I mean, I'd always has a thing for big n' bad, powerful bad guys,
but now he actually had a point of view.

And he definitely is misunderstood.
I understand misunderstood.

What kind of hero is that?
Shouldn't the player know what he stands for?
Whats important to him?
What he fights for?
Most of the time it seems like he's just BULLIED into saving the world!
Is Link really a hero?
This should be a fan challenge. :D

...er...you're welcome.
Sorry I just freaked out on you.

But then again, what do you expect from a hero that can spin with his sword, carry a load of items in his bag, beats bosses more than 5 times his size and yet... he does not have the ability to speak.
What I'm trying to say is that link is "special" and let's look at the story the "special way" =p

:) I always loved ganonodorf as a bad guy. The ending of ocarina of time is still by far the single best closure to a videogame that I've ever seen and I somehow doubt that will ever change. ;)

I always most liked his look in OoT but meh, things change. XD

The thing I like most about him is looking at his two different versions. :) when the timelins split in ocarina it made the "proper" ganondorf, from wind waker, and the ganondorf who was foiled at the last moment in twilight princess.

That's why they're so different, in my mind. :) also, in my mind the Twilight ganondorf is the only one who used allies, so that helps in organising the two timelines, I think. ^^

I love seeing different people's views on him, this is absolutely great! :D

Ganondorf is meant to be a bad person, and obviously his look in OoT is the best, since its his very first appearance as the human Ganondorf!

You gotta give credit to Nintendo for making him appear so differently in many games, in OoT you have the entire evil in him and you know why they call him the Great King of Evil, in WW you see his softer self trying to explain his side of the story for once and in TP.. well to me kinda looked more bad ass =p cause he has much heavier equipment, in OoT he looked abit skinnier... anyways everyone has his own opinion =)

and thank you for the :+fav:!!!!

:D oh well I think he looked more badass in TP, but way more deadly in OoT because he had the whole "evil omnipotence" thing going on. he never got to that point in TP because his plan didn't work out. OoT forever, his longer hair timesed it all by 9000. XD

My pleasure! 8D

Ganondorf was insane in the Wind Waker, though not quite evil. In all of the other games he still is evil.

Don't fool yourself. He's evil. Evil people are perfectly capable of compassion. What makes them evil is the fact that, they don't care who gets hurt as long as they get what they want.

This is why I liked Wind Waker better then Twilight Princess. I loved how Ganondorf was portrayed in that game. TP got him back to his master manipulator roots but nothing will ever beat his Wind Waker self. Instant fave.
