Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ghirahim, full title Demon Lord Ghirahim, is one of the primary antagonists in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword who appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was first announced in a Miiverse post by Masahiro Sakurai.[1]

Ghirahim attacks primarily through his sword and by throwing projectile diamonds when jumping. He constantly moves around while attacking and, if he falls off the stage, teleports to the edge. If enough damage is dealt to him, he will stagger before disappearing; otherwise, he will simply go away after a period of time.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Ghirahim appears as a spirit, which depicts his The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword artwork.

Extremely confident, he encourages Link to use his title, Lord Ghirahim, when they first meet. Is he truly powerful, or does he use eloquent words to distract you and gain an advantage?
Flag of Europe.png No one has a higher opinion of Ghirahim than Ghirahim himself. You may call him Lord Ghirahim, by the way. Link is the thorn in this Demon Lord's otherwise flawless side, and though he might seem calm and collected, he'll start to lose his cool if he doesn't get his own way.
