Ghirahim (ギラヒム, Ghirahim) is a major antagonist from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

Ghirahim appears in Super Smash Bros. 4 as an Assist Trophy. He attacks fighters with both his sword and his knives, and traverses the stage primarily by teleporting. He can be flinched if he's attacked. If he is knocked off the stage, he can teleport back; attacks also cannot interrupt Ghirahim's attacks, and he can also reflect any projectiles thrown at him.

Trophy information[edit]

Ghirahim's trophy appears in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U it is part of the Skyward Sword Characters Trophy Box.

Ghirahim
North America Link encounters Ghirahim repeatedly during his adventure. Extremely confident, he encourages Link to use his title, Lord Ghirahim, when they first meet. Is he truly powerful, or does he use eloquent words to distract you and gain an advantage?
Europe No one has a higher opinion of Ghirahim than Ghirahim himself. You may call him Lord Ghirahim, by the way. Link is the thorn in this Demon Lord's otherwise flawless side, and though he might seem calm and collected, he'll start to lose his cool if he doesn't get his own way.

Origin[edit]

Ghirahim first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword as a mysterious antagonist. A demon befitting his self-proclaimed title "Demon Lord", Ghirahim has a rather cool and flamboyant personality that quickly changes to angry, irritated, psychotic and remorseless when his plans do not go accordingly. He wields powerful magic, embellished with diamonds that are similar to the ones on his clothing, capable of teleportation, summoning monsters and even unleash his true potential.

When Link first meets him early in his quest to find Zelda after she falls from Skyloft by a tornado, it is revealed that Ghirahim was the one who stirred up the tornado to kidnap her. Link valiantly beats him, but Ghirahim retreats as he continues to pursue her.

Throughout the game he causes many problems for Link, Zelda, and Impa by taunting and harassing them. The reason for this is eventually explained; Zelda is the physical reincarnation of the goddess Hylia, and Ghirahim was solely after Hylia's divine essence, it being the sole thing capable of reviving his master, the Demon King Demise. Though Link successfully eradicates Demise with the Triforce in his time, Ghirahim manages to kidnap Zelda and travels back in time via the last Gate of Time, returning to a point when Demise was still alive and successfully reviving him. Ghirahim is revealed to be merely the spirit within Demise's Sword as Link's ally Fi is to him. Link defeats and seals away Demise permanently, Ghirahim's fate as of that point remaining unknown.

Ghirahim uses attacks similar to facing him in the second phase of his first and second encounters, in which he uses darts and his signature rapier. These attacks are also used in his Hyrule Warriors appearance.
