Top 10 Video Game Villains

3) Ganon

Ganon is sort of like a bad rash, no matter how many times you beat him he keeps coming back, just as nasty as ever. Ganon, also referred to as Ganondorf, appears as the main villain in nearly every single Zelda title and he is obsessed with one thing: power.

As you play through a typical Zelda game you'll come to realize that Link has slim odds of surviving against, let alone defeating, this legendary tyrant. But time and time again Link seems to overcome the odds. Throughout most Zelda games you know you're working towards a final climatic battle with your eternal foe. The boss battles with Ganon never disappoint. Ganon always throws everything he has at you including magical abilities powered by dark magic and sometimes the Triforce of Power. If you manage to defeat him he will often come roaring back stronger than he was before.

I'll never forget the first time I managed to beat the mad king in Ocarina of Time and there are undoubtedly legions of gamers out there who also hold this memory dear. Any top villains list without Ganon simply isn't complete.
