Link's archenemy in the Zelda series of games. Although not the center focus of some of the earlier Zelda games such as Zelda I, or the recent Zelda: Majora's Mask, Gannandorf took center stage in Zelda 64 and Zelda A Link To The Past.

As is popular with all Zelda bosses, Gannondorf always has a secret weakness. In Zelda 64, you have to shoot him in the face with light arrows in order to stun him, then hit his tail with the Big Goron Sword or the Megaton Hammer.

In Zelda A Link To the Past on the SNES, while Gannondorf was still Agnihm, and after Link had got the three pendants, he would shoot energy beams at Link that could be reflected with the master sword. It is a little known secret that the Bug Catcher's Net can also be used.
