Demon King Prince of Darkness Gerudo Lord Demon Thief Ganon
Ganondorf, or Ganondorf Dragmire is the collective name referring to the incarnation of the main antagonist of the Legend of Zelda series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto. Ganondorf is the name given to the male Gerudo born every 100 years, wielding the Triforce of power. However the lineage of Gerudo Kings is cursed by the God Demise, where his greed will motivate his desire to pursue all three pieces of the Triforce, but his fate is intertwined with the other weilders of the where he is destined to be defeated by Link and Princess Zelda.
Ganondorf is also known as a pig-beast, Ganon. This form is usually taken when Ganondorf enters the Sacred Realm, as all beings take an animal form in the Sacred Realm, but he, however, remains as Ganon when he is resurrected.
In PR/Sentai series named PR: Zelda, he is descendant of Demise, the first Gerudo tribe because of the Timespace Breakout incident.
Ganondorf is one of the only reoccurring villains in the Legend of Zelda series, and is considered to be one of gaming's greatest villains.

In Wario & Geno: Saviour of the Stars, Ganondorf is the true villain in the game. Only King Dedede was aware of his plans, and as such he took over Star Road before Ganondorf and scattered the Star Spirits so that Ganondorf couldn't get them, stole Wario's money so that Ganondorf couldn't awaken the Black Jewel and kidnapped Mona to protect her from Ganondorf. However, Wario and Geno went ahead completely foiling Dedede's plans, allowing Ganondorf to begin his takeover. However, in the end Ganondorf was defeated as well.
Despite having been killed with the Master Sword during the events of The Wind Waker, Ganondorf miraculously survives and is revived during the events of The Legend of Zelda: Ghost Tracker. Although he has only the Triforce of Power, he is able to use the chamber to communicate and effect the upper world.
He was antagonist in PR: Zelda and based on Ocarina of Time model.
