Event Match 29: Triforce Gathering is the 29th event match of the 51 event matches in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

The player controls Link and must win a stock match against a CPU Ganondorf on the Temple stage. Link is joined by a CPU Zelda ally. The CPU Ganondorf's artificial intelligence is set at Level 8, while the CPU Zelda ally's artificial intelligence is set at Level 7.

When the match starts, Link will spawn on the left side of the center of the stage, while Ganondorf will spawn on the topmost platform and Zelda will spawn on the right side of the stage. Link and Zelda will start with 1 stock while Ganondorf will start with 2 stocks. If either Link or Zelda is KO'd, it will result in a loss.

If Ganondorf has not already been unlocked, completing this event match will trigger another battle against Ganondorf, where defeating him will unlock him.
