Demise is one of the two main antagonists of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a demon who was defeated by the goddess Hylia and sealed in the form of a monster known as The Imprisoned. During the events of Skyward Sword, Demise's servant and living weapon Ghirahim sought the now-mortal reincarnation of Hylia, Zelda and use her life force to release Demise and restore his true form. While Ghirahim succeeded, he died fighting Zelda's friend Link and was sealed within the Master Sword to erase him completely. However, Demise vowed that his malice towards Link and Zelda would be incarnated into one who will make their descendants and reincarnations suffer for years to come.
