Demise is the antagonist ofLegend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He tried to grasp the Triforce in his hands and change the fate bwtween himself, Link, and Zelda. However, in this end, Link managed to defeat the great Demon lord but, as consequence, Demise died cursing the destinies of Link and Zelda. Thus, gave birth to Ganondorf.

The Galactic Usurper

Demise appears in the Galactic Usurper Story Mode as an Boss and a general in the mechanical islands army.

Demise attacks opponents first with a couple lighting strikes from his sword. He fires at least 8 of them randomly. They have unlimited range and can strike any opponent from any distance so it’s best to avoid them. They deal upwards to 20% Lightning damage so avoid them at all costs. During his lighting strikes, he will pause so continue to press forward during this time.

He will then charge at the players and start swinging his sword. Avoid his attacks and dodge them to tire him out. This will happen after 8 seconds. he will start to stagger and slow down. At this point, it is best to attack him and pommel him. After taking enough damage, he will begin throwing electrical strikes again but even stronger ones. deflect, shield, or avoid these as before.

It is a fairly straight forward battle but it befits a master swordsman like himself.

Boss Sphere

Demise is unlocked by completing The Galactic Usurper story mode and then locking him during a Boss Battle with a empty Boss Sphere.

When summoned, Demise comes up from the ground with darkness wrapped about him and laughing manically. He will begin firing Lighting strikes at opponents. A hit from these does 10% Lightning damage and stun grounded opponents/can ground airborne opponents. After 5 hits, he will rush at opponents and begin hacking away at them. Each hit does 15% and has high knock back.

After 15 seconds, Demise roars and a blast of darkness envelopes the stage and deals 40% Dark damage to all opponents. The darkness fades and he starts to laugh hysterically as he fades away.

My Thoughts

I was originally going to make a Demise a playable character (not liking Ghiraham too much) but I decided to make him a Boss instead due to his likeness to Ganondorf. Still, he makes a powerful and evil addition to the game. I based his attacks off his Skyward Sword fight; especially the lightning strikes.
