Ganondorf is the humanoid form of Ganon, who is the main antagonist of the The Legend of Zelda franchise, and archenemy of Link and Princess Zelda. Ganon, the beast form of Ganondorf, has appeared since the beginning of the series, but it was not until The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that directly introduced his original Gerudo form. Originally the King of the Gerudo, a predominantly-female race of desert brigands, he acquired the Triforce of Power in Ocarina of Time. Since then, he has become the king of darkness and used his powers to obtain domination over Hyrule through a variety of means, particularly by obtaining the other two pieces of the Triforce. He has appeared in most titles as Ganon, with the Ganondorf form only appearing in four titles, not counting spin-offs such as Super Smash Bros..
