This article is about Ganondorf's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For other uses, see Ganondorf.
His new design matches his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time! Now he uses his sword for all of his smash attacks. He's a bit slimmer than he was before, but his Warlock Punch is devastating! For his Final Smash he transforms into Ganon, the Demon King and quickly charges forward.
