The Legend of Zelda


 

It’s taken over 30 years, but Link’s archnemesis Ganondorf finally has a full name: Ganondorf Dragmire.

It’s a last name that appears in a lot of fanworks, so it may come as more of a surprise to fans that up until now, it hasn’t been canon. The Dragmire name, however, appeared only in the 1992 game manual for A Link to the Past. It was never mentioned in any of the actual games, and didn’t show up again in 25 years’ worth of other official sources.

Now, though, it’s up on Nintendo’s official Legend of Zelda website (via Eurogamer).

“Once known as the King of Thieves, Ganondorf Dragmire used the power of the Triforce to become the beast, Ganon,” the website’s description of the character reads.

Whether you’re a fan of the Dragmire name or not, one thing’s for certain: Given Nintendo’s record with names, it could have been a lot worse. As hilarious as it would be, it’s probably for the best that we’ll never see a showdown between Link Link and Ganondorf Ganondorf.
