Ganondorf (ガノンドロフ, Ganondorofu) is a playable character and the true main antagonist in Hyrule Warriors and the major antagonist of the Legend of Zelda series. Born from the Gerudo Tribe, the malice of an ancient demon incarnate, Ganondorf sought the omniscient Triforce to grant his wish of conquering the entire world. But he only acquired the Triforce of Power and gained near-immortality, allowing him to cheat death as he made many attempts to conquer Hyrule. But Ganondorf was eventually defeated with his soul splintered into four fragments that were sealed in different eras of Hyrule's timeline. However, Ganondorf corrupted Cia into warping time and space so that he can reconstitute himself and resume his campaign for the Triforce.

- Focus Spirit: Temporarily provides a dramatic increase to his speed, and to a lesser extent his attack power and toughness. When the technique's time runs out, Ganondorf releases one final, powerful attack.
- Focus Spirit Attack (Greatswords): A giant shadowy silhouette of Ganondorf emerges from the earth behind him, mimicking him as he savagely claws and punches at enemies in front of him.
- Focus Spirit Attack (Trident): Stabs diagonally into the ground with the trident, shattering the earth and creating a burst of blue flames, before gathering an energy orb together in both hands and hurling it through all enemies in front of him.
- Special Attack (Greatswords): Ganondorf raises the sword in his right-hand skyward, summoning a bolt of lightning from the sky. Several more lightning bolts strike in a line ahead of him, then he slashes horizontally, firing the collected lightning ahead.
- Special Attack (Trident): Ganondorf throws his Trident forward, hitting the group of enemies right in front of him and dragging them along. He then hovers, taking altitude while charging a ball of lightning energy in his hand, which he then throws into the trident, causing a huge explosion. This attack hits enemies immediately in front of Ganondorf, and also those caught in the explosion.
