Villain Overview

I am the Demon Lord who presides over this land you look down upon, this world you call the surface. You may call me Ghirahim. In truth, I very much prefer to be indulged with my full title: Lord Ghirahim. But I'm not fussy.
~ Ghirahim introducing himself to Link

Demon Lord Ghirahim is the central antagonist of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He is an extremely powerful and flamboyant being born from The Demon King Demise's sword and the evil counterpart to the Goddess Sword's spirit Fi. He aims to capture Zelda, the Goddess Hylia reincarnated, and use her to free Demise from his current imprisonment.

He was voiced by Anri Katsu in all of his game appearances.



In his usual form Ghirahim is a tall, pretty, slender, humanoid with a slim muscular build, pale, greenish skin and white, sleek short hair styled into an asymmetrical bob, with the longer half of his bangs covering up the left side of his face. He has no eyebrows or eyelashes, purple eyes, one rounded ear and one pointed ear and a small black diamond shaped tattoo underneath his left eye, perhaps his most distinguishing feature would be his alarmingly long and skinny tongue which is extremely flexible.

He wears a white, off-shoulder, spandex, sleeveless jumpsuit with diamond-shaped cut-outs all over with an even bigger diamond shaped hole at the chest, white opera style gloves with similar diamond cut outs running up them, two golden bangles on his upper arms a golden belt with a red gem around his waist, a red, forked high-collared cape with a black interior covered with golden diamond motifs closed via gold chain, and a blue diamond earring on his right ear. He also wears large amounts of makeup the most prominent of it being his heavy lilac eyeshadow, black eyeliner and white lipstick.

When Ghirahim strengthens his arms, his skin turns black and metallic, with black streaks on the rest of his body. At full power, he becomes much taller much more muscular, his clothes disappear, both of his ears become pointed, his hair and skin becomes metallic and the skin also turns reddish-black, with white lines covering his body, a diamond-like core on his chest and a smaller one on his forehead, and his eyes become glowing and pupil-less.

Under such aspect, he looks similar to Link's sword spirit Fi, fitting his nature as Fi's evil counterpart. Indeed, after his last defeat, it is revealed that like Fi, who is the spirit of Link's Goddess Sword, he is in fact Demise's sword given life. His sword form looks similar to the Master Sword, only black, spiked and a lot bulkier, with the Triforce motif pointing downwards. There is also a maroon aura coming from Ghirahim in this form.


At first glance, Ghirahim appears as someone calm, poised and collected, although very flamboyant: He acts with grandiose gestures and over-the-top theatrics, he likes to dance and to hum (his own theme tune) when happy, and he displays the disturbing habit of coming too close to people and invade their personal space, to toy with them or to intimidate them.

Ghirahim acts in a dignified and well-mannered way. However, this calm exterior is but a facade he keeps to hide his cruel, vicious, violent and sadistic temper. To his core, Ghirahim enjoys bloodshed, as seen when he licks his lips at the prospect of violence, when he licks his foe's blood off his blade, or when he relishes in his foes' torment. He describes someone’s agony as a "great stress reliever".

Ghirahim's mood can snap at the drop of a hat, from relaxed and playful, to focused and brooding, to angry and violent. He is considerably easily to anger and he lashes out loudly, yet he most often keeps it at bay in favour of his refined facade. During their first encounters, he acts rather friendly (albeit in a creepy way) towards Link, but the more Link meddles with his goals, the more irked he gets, becoming increasingly furious each times he sees him, promising him gory punishment which he describes with lots of details.

Ghirahim is extremely dedicated to his goal. He hates anything standing in his way, and he is abusive and unforgiving towards his underlings. He is very conceited and frequently evokes his high position of authority, which he describes as the reason behind his dignified manners and his "mercy" towards Link.

Finally, Ghirahim is hugely haughty and arrogant. He exhibits intense narcissism, evidenced by how he praises himself and his looks. He scorns humans too much to remember their names, instead using derisive nicknames, and feels outraged that a mere human could best him at every turn, no matter how hard he tries to kill them. He refuses to acknowledge Link's worth to the very end, rejecting all evidence and claiming that his successes are only due to his magic sword.

Powers and Abilities

Ghirahim is an exceptionally powerful and dangerous fighter, with immense speed, spryness, strength, and skills with weapons or hand-to-hand combat; being able to perform long dashes or incredible acrobatics with no effort, or burst his way through a huge mass of boulders in a single strike.

Being a living weapon, it comes as no surprise that he is a master swordsman who can wield different type of blades to the point of perfection. He can strike with great precision, telegraph sword strikes with little effort, or catch his foe's blade and to pry it from their hand and throw it at them.

He mostly fights with rapier-like sabres and short-swords, either one of them or both, but can use an enormous claymore when he goes all-out. The more he reveals said true form, the mightier he becomes. Under his true form, his steel-like skin makes his body impervious to attacks and his limbs like weapons.

In battle, he can conjure diamond-shaped daggers floating in formation around him, which he uses as both a defensive barrier, and hurls toward his foes when he snaps his fingers. He can also send powerful pillars of energy crash onto the ground and infuse his hands with purple energy to increase the might of his blows.

Ghirahim possesses tremendous powers, and extensive knowledge of magic. He can sense people's presence, teleport, perform telekinesis, conjure objects out of thin air, animate things into autonomous beings, summon monsters, control the weather up to conjuring a giant tornado, raise barriers of energy, and so on and so forth.



At some point in the past, Ghirahim existed solely as the sword belonging to its wielder, the great Demon King, Demise (It's unknown if Ghirahim was alive inside the sword or not). After Demise was defeated and sealed away by the goddess, Hylia, Ghirahim took on his "human" appearance and proclaimed himself as a Demon Lord. He became obsessed with releasing his master from his confines by whatever means necessary while leading the remainder of his master's forces on the surface.

He then learns that Hylia had reincarnated herself as a mortal girl named Zelda, and hatches a plan to kidnap her and use her lifeforce to restore his master to his full form.

Skyward Sword

Ghirahim encounters Link several times, as the latter is trying to rescue his childhood friend Zelda (in fact the human reincarnation of the goddess Hylia). In the beginning of the game, as Link and Zelda are riding Link's giant bird, Ghirahim conjures a tornado to make them fall to the surface. He goes to the Skyview Temple where Zelda is to capture her, but she is taken away by Impa. Ghirahim then encounters Link and decides to pummel him to calm his anger, but he is defeated (it must be noted that Ghirahim held back).

As Link is traveling the world to empower the Goddess Sword, Ghirahim goes to the Earth Temple after hearing that his monsters cornered Zelda there, only to find that Impa thwarted him again at the last minute. When Link arrives, he releases the monster known as Scaldera, but Link destroys it. Later, in the Ancient Cistern, he animates the gold statue Koloktos, who also gets defeated.

Ghirahim eventually catches up with Zelda and Impa in the Temple of Time. Impa conjures a magic barrier, but cannot hold him off for long and is nearly killed. Fortunately, Link's interruption allows them to escape through the Gate of Time, which Impa destroys to prevent the Demon Lord from following them.

When Link ventures in the Fire Sanctuary, he meets Ghirahim again, who just found about a second Gate of Time from the rooms illustrations. When Link arrives, Ghirahim offers to let Link go in exchange of the location of the Gate of Time, which he knows, but Link refuses. The two do battle and despite fighting much more seriously, Ghirahim is once again defeated.

After Link makes his wish with the Triforce to destroy Demise, Ghirahim barges in and takes down Link and Zelda with a pillar of energy. He makes quick work of Link's friend Groose and Impa, kidnaps Zelda and take her into the past (where Demise is still alive) through the Gate of Time. There, he starts a ritual to use her soul to release Demise from his imprisonment in the Sealed Grounds.

Link follows Ghirahim into the past and battles his way through the hordes of Bokoblins and other monsters sent by the Demon Lord to buy him time (Ghirahim knows full well that his minions stand no chance but could not care any less). Enraged by Link's meddling, Ghirahim fights Link at full power but ends up defeated for the third time. Alas, the battle took enough time for the ritual to be finished, and Demise is reborn.

Once his full power is restored, Demise transforms Ghirahim back into his sword; with Ghirahim laughing maniacally all the while, hinting that this is what the Demon Lord wanted all along. After Link defeats Demise, the sword dissolves into a dark essence that is blown away in the wind, leaving his exact fate ambiguous.

First Battle

Ghirahim calmly walks towards Link, who must strike away from his raised hand to deal damage, otherwise, he catches his blade between two fingers; if Link does not strike at the Demon Lord, Ghirhaim will damage him with a backhand strike. If Link does not pry his sword from his grasp, Ghirahim steals it, mocking his predictability, and strikes him with it. Blocking his blow with the shield sends it flying, enabling Link to take it back. If Link is a distance away, Ghirahim will throw the sword at him.

After taking enough damage, Ghirahim fights with a rapier-like saber and starts teleporting, striking, launching dash attacks, conjuring waves of five daggers that can be struck and sent back at him, and parrying Link's blows. Link must use well-timed attacks from unprotected angles to bypass the Demon Lord's guard until he wins the skirmish.

Second Battle

The Demon Lord fights like he did before, but he is faster, spryer and can conjure up to four daggers, which he uses as defense, to block Link's blows, and offence, when he fires them. Link must destroy the daggers before attacking, but Ghirahim can and will still catch his blade if Link does not catch him off-guard.

After taking enough damage, Ghirahim fights with both a sabre and a sword. He also becomes faster and has better defense, making him even more dangerous than before. He teleports, deals normal strikes, double strikes, two strikes in succession, and dashes. When he jumps before teleporting, Link must run away, because he will reappear in the air doing a powerful diving stab. Ghirahim can conjure a ring of daggers around him to send three successive waves, that can still be sent back, or around Link to be fired at once, forcing Link to destroy them all with a whirling blow.

Third Battle

Ghirahim creates two platforms of energy floating in the sky, where he fights Link for the last time, under his metallic form. He fights with punches and high kicks, and if too close to the platform's end, can catch Link to switch positions. He blocks blows with his forearms, or his hands infused with purple energy. Link must strike him repeatedly until he falls to the platform below, and follow him to land a Finishing Blow while he is down.

After doing it thrice, Ghirahim returns the platform to the ground and fights with a sabre. He teleports, lands stabs and downward strikes, fires energy discs from his blade which can be struck and sent back to stun him, and conjures a wave of daggers one after the other that must be blocked with the shield. Link must bypass his guard to strike his damaged core, but this proves quite uneasy, so stunning him with Shield Bashes when he strikes is advised. After taking enough damage, the Demon Lord conjures a massive Zweihander, which increase the range and strength of his strikes, and which he uses to block all of Link's attacks. Link must strike the undefended side to destroy the Zweihander, and attack Ghirahim when he restores it, until the Demon Lord is dealt with once and for all.

Hyrule Warriors

Ghirahim in Hyrule Warriors

Ghirahim serves as one of the main characters and a playable warrior in Hyrule Warriors. He acts as the main antagonist of the Skyward Sword era, the deuteragonist (alongside Zant) of Ganondorf's March, one of the secondary antagonists (alongside Zant) of Grand Finale, a minor antagonist in Linkle's Tale and a supporting protagonist in Cia's Story.

He is summoned from the Skyward Sword era by the Black Witch Cia via the Gate of Souls, and although he is disinterested at first due to being busy trying to focus on reviving Demise as he does in Skyward Sword he decides to form an alliance with her after a battle upon sensing Ganondorf's essence within her, impressing him as its something he recognises as belonging to Demise. Ghirahim partners himself with Cia's vicious subordinate Volga in order to protect the Gate of Souls located in Skyloft. Together, Ghirahim and Volga plot an attack on Skyloft, releasing armies of monsters to prevent Link and Fi from reaching the Gate of Souls and deactivating it.

Both Ghirahim and Volga are temporarily defeated, but Ghirahim manages to escape to the Sealed Grounds where he personally protects the Gate of Souls. As Link and his followers arrive, Ghirahim summons The Imprisoned, Demise's depowered form, to destroy them, though The Imprisoned is destroyed instead. As a last resort, Ghirahim fights Link once more but ends up being knocked through the Gate of Souls and sealed away.

Following Cia's death, Ghirahim is freed by Ganondorf along with Zant, and employed to serve him during his quest to obtain the Triforce. Ghirahim pledges obedience to Ganondorf, recognizing him as Demise's successor and acts as the muscle for the trio. He and Zant assist Ganondorf when he takes over Hyrule and ultimately they succeeded in getting all three pieces of the Triforce allowing Ganondorf to rule over Hyrule while Zant and Ghirahim head back to the Gerudo Desert instead. Here the two command Ganondorf's forces and although they nearly succeeded in defeating the retaliating Hyrulean forces they are ultimately bested.

While in the original Wii U release Ghirahim was only unlockable in Adventure Mode he was made available from the start in the 3DS and Nintendo Switch re-releases.

Super Smash Bros. Series

Ghirahim appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. When summoned, he will teleport towards opponents and attack them by slashing his blade or by throwing daggers.

Ghirahim later returns as an assist trophy and a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Said spirit is a grab-type primary that can be obtained through a spirit battle against Corrin with increased melee power and agility on Skyloft. Ghirahim can also appear as a hostile trophy. He also appears during The Imprisoned's spirit battle, where his assist trophy appears to defend his master (here depicted as a giant King K. Rool) and fight the player.


Look who it is... I thought that tornado I stirred up would have tossed and torn you apart, yet here you are. Not in pieces. Not that your life or death has any consequence. It's just the girl that matters now, and I can sense her here... just beyond this door. Yes, we plucked Her Majesty from her perch in the clouds, and now she's ours. Oh, but listen to me. I'm being positively uncivil. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Demon Lord who presides over this land you look down upon, this world you call the surface. You may call me Ghirahim. In truth, I very much prefer to be indulged with my full title: Lord Ghirahim. But I'm not fussy. [Link draws his sword] Did you really just draw your sword? Foolish boy. By all rights the girl should have fallen into our hands already. She was nearly ours when that loathsome servant of the goddess snatched her away. Do you have any idea how that made me feel inside? Furious! Outraged! Sick with anger! This turn of events has left me with a strong appetite for bloodshed. hardly seems fair, being of my position, to take all of my anger out on you. Which is why I promise up front not to murder you... No, I'll just beat you within an inch of your life.
~ Ghirahim to Link before their first fight in the Skyview Temple.
Well... You put up more of a fight than I would have thought possible out of such a soft boy. But don't clap for yourself quite yet. That sword of yours is the only reason you still live. I fear I spent far too long teasing and toying with you. The girl's presence has all but faded from this place, which means there's no reason to linger here. Good-bye, sky child. Run and play this time. Get in my way again, though, and you're dead.
~ Ghirahim to Link after their first fight.
Oh, it’s you. Let me see… No, that’s not it. This is so very embarrassing, but I seem to be at a loss for your name. Not that it matters, really. To tell you the truth, I’m feeling a bit frustrated and right now I just need someone to vent to. I hear my underlings had finally captured the spirit maiden, so of course I rushed over here. What can I say? I was excited. Flustered, even… But what did I find when I arrived? That agent of the goddess… She had once again… You see, what I’m trying to say is… That goddess-serving dog escaped with the girl! I MUST have the spirit maiden in order to resurrect my master! I MUST HAVE HER! …I got a little carried away there, didn’t I? I don’t deal well with… complications to plans I’ve laid out so carefully. It’s a character flaw of mine. Ah, but something good can still come from this day! I’ve had all this bottled-up anger smoldering inside me, and now I can release it. There’s someone special I’d like to you to meet. Oh, don’t be shy! I need to vent all this unhealthy anger, and your agony is such a great stress reliever. It won’t take more than a few moments with my friend before you’re charred to a satisfying crisp. And let me tell you, that will put a spring in my step!
~ Ghirahim to Link in the Earth Temple before summoning Scaldera.
Now you’ve done it, Link. I blame myself. I should have reprimanded you the last time we’ve met, but instead I was… soft. I’d take pleasure in punishing you, but I have no time for recreation. But next time, I’ll do more than just beat you senseless. I’ll make the affair so excruciating, you’ll deafen yourself with the shrill sound of your own screams.
~ Ghirahim to Link after Zelda escapes through the Gate of Time.
You certainly are persistent... I'm terribly busy trying to find clues that will help me revive the demon king. Your incessant buzzing around my head like some irksome gadfly when I'm THIS busy is... Well, it’s making me very disagreeable.
~ Ghirahim to Link in the Ancient Cistern before summoning Koloktos.
…Oh, hello there, Link. I see you’re still among the living. Fancy meeting you here. We seem to bump into each other time and time again. Oh, it’s no coincidence, though, is it? You and I, we’re bound by a thread of fate. Look at these old drawings! Until I found these, I was… upset about that little stunt the goddess’s guard dog pulled at the Gate of Time. What was that twig’s name again? Impa? Well, never mind that, because these drawing suggest the existence of a second Gate of Time. This news has just filled my heart with rainbows! I’ve been a busy boy, searching here and there and everywhere for another Gate of Time. And yet, I couldn’t even find a single clue. Since I know I can be honest with you, I’ll admit I got a little sulky. It was frowns all around. The thought of never getting my hands on that darling young girl again was… well, more than I could bear. But then… Then I found this place! The prospect of a second Gate of Time has made me positively giggly! That girl… Your adorable friend… She will be instrumental in bringing about the revival of my master. And though I feared she was now quite beyond my reach, I despair no longer! …But before we talk any further on that subject, there’s still the outstanding matter of your punishment, Link. Do you remember when I told you that the next time we met, I’d make your ears bleed from the sound of your own screams? Well, I’ve been thinking… Perhaps corporal punishment is a touch harsh. I might be willing to forgive and forget if you’ll strike a deal. …All I ask is that you tell me where I can find the other Gate of Time. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Oh, and don’t you play coy with me. I know that you know, so why not let me in on the fun? [Link readies for battle] Such behavior. A mischievous boy like you needs to be dealt with firmly. I must warn you, I won’t go easy on you this time. [Ghirahim takes off his cape and hardens his arms] Lovely, aren’t they? You’ll find the supple skin of my arms tougher than any armor. Doesn’t their shape just leave you… breathless? Behold! Such beauty! Such a pure form! Such an exquisite physique! Such stunning features! Yes, I’ve pretty much got it all. Though there is one teensy, tiny thing I lack… Namely, mercy. Come to me, Link. You and I, we’re bound by that thread of fate. Destined to fight. So come close, Link! Meet me in battle, and the thread of fate that binds us will be soaked crimson with your blood!
~ Ghirahim to Link before their second battle in the Fire Sanctuary.
…Enough of this foolishness… I am Ghirahim, Demon Lord! It shouldn’t matter how powerful your sword is, you are still nothing… Not just a human… A human child! And yet you prevail! You filthy scamp! You have awakened a wrath that will burn for eons! I swear to you, whatever it takes, I will drag you into an eternity of torment!
~ Ghirahim after being defeated again.
This is all very touching, really, but I’m afraid I have to cut this emotional moment short. It’s best for everyone if you forget about your friend. The little goddess is mine now! My master may have perished in this age, but in the past he lives yet! I’m taking the girl back through that gate to help me revive the demon king! You’ve been so adorably dogged in your quest to get in my way, and as much as it has delighted me, I can no longer tolerate you nipping at my heels. (Zelda: ...Link...) [Link gets up and readies for battle] …You know, boy, you’ve really pushed me too far. The moment I sweated and bled for is at hand. I don’t even have the time to grind my heal into a worm like you. Not now. [Ghirahim teleports in front of the Gate of Time with Groose and Impa in his way] …Stand down. You’re in my way, and the sight of your appalling hair makes my gorge rise. [Ghirahim kicks Groose and Impa out of the way, activates the gate and turns back at Link] You’ve done a fine job of spoiling my plans to revive the demon king in this age, so I see no point in dawdling here. But the past…oh, the past… So full of possibilities. I shall resurrect him there with the divine soul of this golden-haired girl!
~ Ghirahim as he captures Zelda and escapes through the Gate of Time to revive the Demon King.
Hear me, my hordes! The spell is nearly complete! The demon king returns! Until then, you WILL keep that whelp from interfering with my ritual. I don’t care if the whole lot of you get on the end of his blade. You will buy me the time I need! Do not fear him… Fear my wrath if you fail me!
~ Ghirahim summoning an army of minions to defend him against Link as he prepares to sacrifice Zelda.
You’re far too quick, boy! [Link approaches with sword in hand] I realize a simple child like you knows nothing of magic, but spells like this take time and a steady hand! Can’t you wait quietly like a good boy? HMM? You petulant brat… You’ve pushed me too far. I’ve waited my whole existence for this! This is my moment! You know what? Fine! If you’re so intent on hurrying to your grave, I’ll be happy to show you the way! [Ghirahim levitates Zelda out of the way] This time there will be no heroic escape. I was a fool to toy with you and let you walk away with your life before, but I won’t make that mistake again. That, I promise!
~ Ghirahim to Link after he defeats his horde.
If only I’d put you in your place from the very beginning. Show a human a little mercy and next thing you know, he thinks himself your equal! Given my station, I had to maintain some semblance of dignity, so I let you run with your life… Twice, even. Such a guilty pleasure… But instead of scurrying away like any creature with a basic instinct to survive, you just kept coming back. Again… and again… and again. I’ve let a mere boy make a fool of me for the last time. You stand before a demon… or should I say, a weapon without mercy! For you, boy, I’ve prepared a most appropriate and humiliating death. I even have a pet name for it—I call it the endless plunge! First, I will take my time bludgeoning you, and when I grow bored of it, I will drive you to the edge and deliver a last strike and send you falling to your doom! I’ll delight in casting your body into this pit and snuffing out the flame of your life! Your broken body will serve as a fine sustenance for the demon king!
~ Ghirahim to Link before their third and final fight in the Sealed Grounds of the past.
This… This is preposterous. Driven to my knees by a simple child of man. Laughable! No matter how many times we clash, I can’t prevail! You think I can’t defeat you? You think I can’t win?? Boy… what are you? [Ghirahim begins laughing] Ah… But never that. Victory is still mine to savor. While we fought the ritual I started continued… At last, it’s complete! The demon king shall devour the soul of the goddess and resurrect in his full glory! [The Imprisoned appears and devours Zelda's soul] Don’t you see? It’s all over! You and your kind have lost! This world and everything in it now belong to darkness! They belong to my master!
~ Ghirahim after being defeated by Link for the third time.
Welcome back to us, Master.
~ Ghirahim greeting Demise; also his final words before being turned back into a sword.


  • In Ghirahim's first two forms, his right ear is pointed, whereas his left ear is round. However, in his final form, both ears are pointed. It is likely that the designers shortened his ear in the first forms to make animating his hair easier.
  • Ghirahim acts as an evil counterpart of Fi, as they are both the humanoid forms of swords. Ghirahim's weapon form resembles a dark version of the Master Sword. In addition, Fi is generally regarded as calculating and emotionless, while Ghirahim is very open and dramatic about his emotions.
  • When seen beginning the ritual to revive his master, Ghirahim can be heard humming his own theme music.
  • Ghirahim's ultimate fate after vanishing following Demise's defeat is uncertain since it is ambiguous whether or not he was actually killed. He has not appeared in any future events in the timeline, although there are some theories his identity could actually belong to other villains appearing within the series such as Vaati and Majora, but this remains unconfirmed.
  • It has been theorized by some fans that Ghirahim has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a personality disorder characterized by attention seeking behavior and mannerisms and a feeling of superiority to others.
