Ganondorf vs. Bowser is a What-If? episode of Death Battle.


Legend of Zelda VS Mario Bros! Two of Nintendo's most iconic villains and princess kidnappers will finally duel to the death! Whose sheer power and magic will win the day?


Wiz: No matter how many times their adversaries seeminly vanquish them, these two villains are always sure to return and wreck havok.

Boomstick: And kidnap their princesses, like Bowser, the King of Koopas.

Wiz: And Ganondorf, the King of Evil.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick...

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.


Wiz: Bowser is the archenemy of Mario, stealing Princess Peach as much as he can. But this reptilian dragon-turtle doesn't only specialize in capturing, as he can sure fight on his own.

Boomstick: Being based partly off of a dragon, Bowser has the infamous fire breath! He can burn opponents to a crisp with it, and he never runs out of fire fuel!

Wiz: And Bowser sure knows how to use his hands. His punches and kicks are devastating, not to mention his claw scratches.

Boomstick: He also has a Koopa Kart! With it, he flys around! But Bowser doesn't only need this to go high! Bowser can jump amazingly high, and he hardly takes fall damage! But it is presumed that if he falls from a REALLY high place, it'll probably hurt. This is shown in New Super Mario Bros. DS, where in the final battle, Mario/Luigi makes him fall from a pretty big height, and he was left passed out. If the fall had been bigger, he'd be dead!

Wiz: Anyways, along with his normal orange fire balls, he can shoot pink fire balls that are stronger and faster. Not to mention, he also has ground stomps like Mario. He also has extras like barrels that he can throw.

Boomstick: Bowser's a plan maker, but the plans aren't always the best. Sometimes he even ends up fighting ALONGSIDE Mario instead of just fighting Mario. But Bowser is a real brute!

Wiz: But this isn't what Bowser only has. After being struck by lightning, Bowser turns into his ultimate form. Giga Bowser. Giga Bowser is way bigger than Bowser, and his moves do way more damage. Sadly, he still can take damage. Still, his attacks in his form are amazing, and some even freeze foes.

Boomstick: Buuuuut, Giga Bowser has a time limit of 13 seconds. Still, Bowser is AWESOME!

Wiz: It really is no doubt the Bowser is fit to take on fiction's toughest characters.

Bowser: Show time!


Wiz: Born as the only Gerudo male in one hundred years, Ganondorf Dragmire was not like the others.

Boomstick: Ganondorf wanted to rule over he world, not just Gerudo valley, so he ran to the pyramid of power one day.

Wiz: Ganondorf got what he was looking for; the Triforce of Power. And so, he gained the King of Hyrule's trust, than destroyed the Hyrule castle town as a surprise attack.

Boomstick: Yeah, he gets beaten down by Link a lot, but Ganondorf is extremely powerful! He has many incarnations over the Zelda timeline, and we're using every single Ganondorf in one!

Wiz: Ganondorf is a skilled magician. No, not the card trick kind of magician, but he can use magic very well, like with energy blasts, and flying techniques.

Boomstick: He's also really good with swords, and he's had a lot of them! Like the Sage's Sword, a sword Ganondorf obtained by literally KILLING the Sage of Water, than stealing it. This sword is extremely powerful in combat, even though it was supposed to be used by the Water Sage for execution.

Wiz: And he has duel katana. These help him deliver quick swift attacks, faster than the naked eye can see. Than that brings us to speed. Ganondorf is extremely fast, as he can block attacks just as they are used.

Boomstick: Not to mention, even when he's in heavy armour, this guy can just all over the place, block quick attacks, and deliver fast attacks of his own.

Wiz: And if you want to take from Super Smash Bros., Ganondorf also has dark magic to use as melee attacks, like the Warlock Punch, which is basically just a slower more powerful Falcon Punch.

Boomstick: But, when even all this doesn't do the trick, Ganondorf uses his last resort. By using the power of the Triforce of Power, Ganon will transform into a beast feared by all. Ganon. Ganon

Bowser was a large monster. Everyone feared him, and if they didn't, they'd be killed. This King of all Koopas loved kidnapping, for reasons only Bowser himself knew. Did he like the company? Maybe, but he can always get company with his child Bowser Jr. But that was the problem. Bowser Jr. had been killed the other day by a small tunic-wearing blondie with a sword. The death of Bowser's son was gruesome, and what was even worse was that Bowser saw the whole thing on a hidden camera. And Bowser was bored. MARIO was even dead.

Like stated before, Bowser really does like his kidnapping. But recently, he's been trying to get back at the blonde swordsman. So, instead of stealing the graceful Peach, he stole Zelda, the queen of Hyrule. She was calling for help in her dungeon, and Bowser was listening to her talking.

"Please... Anyone... Can anyone hear me? Help..." Zelda was on her knees in the prison, hoping that somebody, ANYBODY, would respond. Her wish was granted.

"I can hear you, princess." A voice responded. 'It was the tunic guy!' Bowser thought. But Bowser was wrong. The voice speaking to Zelda was rough and harsh, almost evil.

"Please... I'm in Bowser's castle. In one of the prisons." Zelda explained. The voice than started to laugh creepily. "Ganondorf! So I've been talking to you this whole time!" Zelda suddenly found out. Than the evil voice of Ganondorf disappeared. Bowser turned off his camera, and thought for a bit. Who was Ganondorf? Oh, right. Bowser knew. It was the guy Zelda was normally taken by. Bowser had a feeling that Ganondorf was coming to his castle, so Bowser got off his throne, and stomped out of his tower. The King of Koopas stood in front of the Moat, and waited for this Ganondorf guy to show up.

Sure enough, about ten minutes later, a cloaked man on a dark black horse rode up to Bowser. Flames followed the horse. The man steadily got off of his stead, and uncloaked himself. A green-faced man with crimson hair stood in front of Bowser, smirking. The man wore think armour, and had a glowing sword in its sheath.

"I am Ganondorf. I have come to escort the Queen Zelda out of her prison cell." The man's smirk grew.

"Fat chance of that happening, troll-head!" Bowser clenched his fists. At the snap of his fingers, Ganondorf sent his horse away, and he took a few steps back.

"Okay, fine. We'll fight. The winner gets the Queen. The loser gets… death." Ganondorf made the rules, and pulled his long sword out of its sheath. "I'm gonna make you into turtle soup."

"Show time!" Bowser yelled, baring his claws.


Ganondorf's sword and Bowser's claws collided. The two pushed hard, trying to win the clash, but it seemed hopeless. Being the tactician that he is, Bowser took a deep breath in, than released fire from his mouth. The bright orange flames disappeared, leaving Ganondorf's face seared and blistered. Ganondorf kicked Bowser in annoyance, than slashed Bowser's face. Bowser hopped backwards, and shot a huge pink fireball. This fireball traveled fast, but fortunately, Ganondorf sidestepped it. Ganondorf threw three energy blasts at Bowser. The King of Koopas blocked with his shell, than whipped a barrel at the Gerudo King. The Dark Lord Ganon destroyed the barrel with a slice, than picked up one of the barrel splinters, and stabbed it into Bowser's arm. Bowser fiercely yanked it out, than jumped high into the air, and ground stomped. Ganondorf was crushed in the chest, and he gasped, but the King of Gerudo stood back up, and shot Bowser in the face with an energy ball. Bowser spun Ganondorf swiftly around, grabbed him by the cape, and threw him into the castle wall. Ganondorf fell into the moat. Bowser laughed manically, than began to stomp away. But he was stopped, as Ganondorf flew out of the moat. Ganondorf flew in front of Bowser, than launched a fully-charged Warlock Punch. Bowser was smashed into the dirt, and weakly climbed out of the crater he created. Bowser sighed, pulled out a Bob-Omb, and quickly tossed it over to Ganondorf. Ganondorf grabbed the item in confusion, than it blew up, sending he Dark Lord into a tree.

"You are a fool!" The Dark King Ganondorf yelled, pulling out his twin Katana, and slashing Bowser in the cheek. Ganondorf followed it up with a slice to the chest. Unfortunately for the Gerudo King, Bowser slashed him back, than punched him hard into the air. "You're the fool, green-face!" Bowser jumped in his Koopa Kart, and flew up to follow King Ganondorf. Bowser punched Ganondorf even harder, sending him higher and higher. Ganondorf ended up leaving the atmosphere, and he fell into an odd star. The star launched Ganondorf onto the moon! Bowser followed, and this battle became out of this world. Bowser jumped out of the Koopa Kart, grabbed Ganondorf, jumped high into the sky, than body slammed Ganondorf into the moon. Bowser was certain it was over know. But… Bowser heard panting. Moon rock exploded everywhere, and Ganondorf burst out of the rubble, showing his right hand. This right hand contained the Triforce of Power!

"Pant... Pant... You can't beat me… stupid turtle... Not while the Triforce of Power is in my hand!" Ganondorf screamed, and was surrounded in blinding red light. The light dissipated, and Ganondorf was replaced by the giant best Ganon! Bowser knew it was time, so he got struck by random lightning, and turned into Giga Bowser! The two exchanged blows, until Ganon slashed Bowser hard in the cheek with his Trident. Giga Bowser punched Ganon back, than froze Ganon in place. After getting wailed on, Ganon broke out of the ice, and slashed Giga Bowser a few more times. Giga Bowser charged up his strongest attack, as did Ganon. The two released, causing the Galaxy to flash bright white. When it cleared, the moon was now all but rubble. Giga Bowser was now Bowser, and Ganon was once again Ganondorf. The two were screaming. Why? Becuase they were falling back to earth! The two hit, causing a massive explosion. Blood was everywhere. Bowser and Ganondorf both were laying in a giant pool of blood.

"Is it over?" A king asked. He sat up from the blood bath, and ran his hand through his bloody orange hair. But, both Bowser and Ganondorf have orange hair, so who won? The victor rubbed his head, which was also dripping blood. He than checked his body. He was fine. The surviving king then……… pulled out his glowing sword, and smirked.


Ganondorf captured Zelda from Bowser's castle.


Deadpool: Just explain how I beat this asshole-... Wait a second. I'm not in the right battle, am I?

Wiz: Get out, Deadpool.

Deadpool: Alright, Ben. DEADPOOL OUT!

Boomstick: Uhhhh... Anyways... It actually wasn't too close. Ganondorf was more skilled in weaponry, ranged combat, had more experience, and was faster. Ganon was even better than Giga Bowser. All Bowser had on him was power, close combat, and durability.

Wiz: Bowser has always been one to try and overpower his foes. He'll barrage enemies with a ton of fireballs, whip barrels at them, and strait up chase the opponent down if hurt enough. Ganondorf on the other hand, has proven to be as skilled as even Link, and can even trick opponents with his swordsmanship.

Boomstick: Ranged is a no-brainer. Bowser hardly uses any magic, and even if magic has been used in his boss battles, it was preformed by Kamek. Ganondorf on the other hand, can use ranged combat wisely by flying to stay back, while conjuring up magic blasts.

Wiz: Ganondorf by far has the most experience! Bowser has been fighting as long as Mario's been alive, and he has been in more games than Ganondorf, but we dug deeper than that. Looking at the official Zelda timeline, and using common Zelda sense, we know that Ganondorf is basically immortal. Every time he is defeated, he comes back hundreds of years later. The Zelda timeline spans across about 1000 years, meaning Ganondorf had that much time to practice. 40+ years of practice < 1000 years of practice.

Boomstick: Ganondorf is definitely faster. Sure, Bowser can jump high and run pretty fast, but Ganondorf is still better in this category. Ganondorf can easily swiftly dodge quickly used attacks. And as seen in Wind Waker, Ganondorf was light on his feet and blocked an attack just as the attack was preformed.

Wiz: Finally, Ganon is better in every single category compared to Giga Bowser. Well, except for speed and durability, but that's really it. Plus, Giga Bowser has a time limit, unlike Ganon.

Boomstick: Actually, Bowser being better in durability is technically wrong. Sure, Ganondorf takes more damage from hits…, but nothing Bowser has could ever actually KILL Ganondorf. Yes, Ganondorf can be hurt, but not killed. It is a commonly known fact that Ganondorf can only be killed by Holy Weapons. For one, Bowser obtaining the Silver Arrows and/or Master Sword would be outside help. And secondly, Bowser could never really even USE or HOLD the Master Sword, due to him not being pure of heart. And thirdly, Bowser has never once used a single holy weapon. This is the greatest reason on why this battle wasn't close by a long shot.

Wiz: I agree. Bowser CAN possibly destroy Ganondorf's body, but once again, we dug deeper than that.

Boomstick: Malladus is clearly another incarnation of Ganondorf. Malladus has the ability to control bodies when he's in soul form. If Bowser destroyed Ganondorf's body, Ganondorf's soul would simply go in Bowser's body, force Bowser to kill himself, get out of Bowser's body, than wait thousands of years until the Triforce of Power reformed his own body again. But, if you don't believe that, just think about this. Bowser has nothing that can hurt souls. Ganondorf would be waiting with Bowser for a hundred years, until his body returned! And if you say "Well, Bowser can do the same, right?", than you're wrong. If Bowser COULD have his soul linger on earth when his body is destroyed, and have his body regenerate, like Ganondorf, it wouldn't matter. Ganondorf CAN hurt souls. My proof? Twilight Princess, Ganondorf killed the deity spirit known as the Water Sage in Ganon's OWN execution. Simple as that, folks. Things only like the Master Sword, Silver Arrows, Light Arrows, and Dragon Ball Z's Spirit Ball can kill Ganondorf's body and soul. "Oh, but Boomstick, what if Ganondorf isn't actually an incarnation of Malladus?" Well, that really doesn't matter. Even if Ganondorf COULDN'T posses bodies when he's a soul, he still can regenerate his body through the Triforce of Power. So, Ganondorf's soul, and Bowser, would just be waiting around for Ganondorf's body to regenerate, and then Ganondorf would destroy Bowser, because the Koopa King would be really old by the time Ganondorf regrows his body.

Wiz: "Oh, but Wizard, can't Bowser hurt spirits?". Yes, Bowser can hurt Boos. True. But, that is, once again, countered. For one, Boos are stereotypical ghosts. They aren't really "ghosts". They are clearly visible, and only turn invisible when looked at. BUT, Boo are solid when not looked at. Proof? Super Mario 64, Mario punches Boos when they aren't looking. It is CLEARLY OBVIOUS, that Mario, Bowser, and others, would NOT be able to hurt ghosts. And here's some more proof for you. Can Mario and others hurt Boos while they are invincible? No. Can Boos travel through walls while visible? No. Boo are solid, and can turn invisible at will. REAL spirits, on the other hand, are basically the equivalent of Boos when get turn invisible. Ghosts aren't visible sometimes, are they? No. Can you touch ghosts? No. Ganondorf would be like one of these normal ghosts. Yes, Poes can be hit in Zelda games. Does Ganondorf turn into a Poe when dead? No. Is this the same case as with Boo? Yes. If Bowser destroyed Ganondorf's body, which I doubt would happen, Bowser would not be able to even hurt Ganondorf's soul.

Boomstick: Man... Mario fanboys aren't even here and Wiz is getting mad...

Wiz: I'm not getting mad! 

Boomstick: Suuuuuuuuuure you're not...

Wiz: AHEM! Anyways, don't try to pull that whole "Bowser survived a supernova" crap on us. In case you still think that's true, let me tell you something. A GROUP OF LUMA PROTECTED EVERYONE FROM THE FREAKING BLAST. Not to mention, if that feat was correct, it'd mean that the freaking Honey Bee Queen has the defence great enough to survive attacks from Superman himself. Yeah, no. "Oh, but there were no Lumas there?!" I guess, you can say that. But to counter it... Bowser and others were killed by the supernova. They only came back because the universe was reset.

Boomstick: Yeah, okay, sure, Bowser has lava resistance. Does Ganondorf have any lava to his disposal? No. Plus, the lava resistance thing is ALSO bull crap, because it burns him down to the bone, almost like humans. Than it takes a magic pot to regrow Bowser's skin. ALSO, after he turns into Dry Bowser, he falls apart REALLY easily after he falls from just about 20 feet. Yeah, and Mario characters are able to fall from heights like 20 feet easily. And I'm sure if you dropped a human skeleton from that height, it really wouldn't break as much as Dry Bowser. Really guys, don't underestimate the Legend of Zelda.

Wiz: Exactly, Boomstick. Now we better watch out for the Mario Fans.

Boomstick: Looks like Ganondorf's having scrambled turtle tonight!

Wiz: The winner is, Ganondorf.


Description=Super Mario Bros VS Legend of Zelda! Nintedo's two most iconic villains fight to the death! Which powerful, evil, super strong, ridiculousy durable, princess stealing King will truly meet death today?



Wiz: Nintendo's two most iconic and most powerful evil kings. No matter how many times the human hero seemingly kills them they always come back to cause more trouble and steal the kingdom's princess.

BoomStick: Bowser, the king of the Koopas and arch-enemy of Mario.

Wiz: And Ganondorf, the king of evil and arch-enemy of Link.

BoomStick: He's Wiz and I'm BoomStick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win a death battle!!!!!!

Bowser VS Ganondorf fight image



Wiz: Bowser is the king of the Koopas possessing an army of various minions. The infamous Bowser is feared greatly by the residents of the Mushroom Kingdom and well he is a giant, fire-breathing, spiked shelled monster so... that fear is well justified. Despite this, instead of going around terrorizing/murdering everyone as you'd expect a monster like him to do, he instead always kidnaps the Mushroom Kingdom's leader Princess Peach.

BoomStick: For obvious reasons heh heh. But, other times he's tried to take over the entire universe too. But, he's always stopped by that damn Italian plumber Mario! Seriously, how does he always lose to a damn plumber?

BACKGROUND .Age: 50 . Height: 8 feet .Weight: 400 pounds . King of the Koopas . Owns his own castle . Breathes fire . Spiked shell . Alternate forms . Mobile flying clown car armed with weaponry

Wiz: His trademark and most powerful ability is of course his fire breath. Bowser takes great pride in his fire breath and he should! Bowser's fire breath is very powerful able to reach temperatures of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit! Bowser's fire breath can be shot in large streams or shot out as individual fireballs. He also even has meteorite breath to breathe meteors!

BoomStick: And his fire breath is so powerful it can even work underwater! Now, that's badass! Screw you science, I'm Bowser!

Wiz: Also, since he is a Koopa he is able to get into his shell and spin around. He can use this as an attack as well.

BoomStick: But, it's far more deadly when Bowser does it since his shell is covered in spikes! He's also even able to turn it into a double sided shell with spikes all over. Speaking of his shell like other Koopas it's practically indestructible. And for someone of his weight he's surprisingly agile able to jump extremely high in the air and he can pound the ground so hard that it creates shockwaves or even dark energy waves. Bowser can also morph his body into a boulder to roll around and crush opponents, and summon giant rocks from above. Not to mention long distance teleportation, levitation, poisonous green gas, and even has an inhale ability like Kirby's! But Bowser's doesn't copy abilities sadly.

Wiz: But, he doesn't rely solely on these powers. Bowser is able to traverse the skies and outer space using his personal vehicle the clown car.


Bowser in clown car

BoomStick: Oh yeah! That thing, while it does look stupid it's super helpful. Bowser uses it as a mini-helicopter to fly at extremely fast hypersonic speeds. Plus, it's durable made of hard steel. It's also armed with weapons like dozens of Bob-OMBs, 2 bullet bill blaster cannons, Mecha Koopas, spiked bombs, freakin bowling balls, and even a cannon inside of it's mouth that shoots rapid fire laser beams!? This thing's got it all! I want one!

Wiz: Back to Bowser himself, he also possesses phenomenal strength. He's able to obliterate stone statues and break down walls with 1 punch! However, those are are only his standard strength feats. Bowser can easily punch castles knocking them far away or lift them.

BoomStick: Yeah, his strength is pretty impressive but what's REALLY impressive is his durability. He just refuses to die! Bowser has survived falling in lava countless times, being crushed, shattered, his entire castle falling on top of him, being sucked into a black hole, and even FALLING DIRECTLY INTO THE SUN!!!

Wiz: Well, this is a bit of an exaggerated misconception much like DK's moon punching feat is. You see it wasn't THE sun, not our earth's sun. It was just A SUN. This is confirmed since the planet that Mario and Bowser were fighting on was surrounded by many suns. The sun Bowser fell into was an average orange sun. An average orange sun at it's highest temperature is 6,499 degrees Celsius/ 11,730 degrees Fahrenheit. At it's lowest temperature it is 4,000 degrees Celsius/7,232 degrees Fahrenheit. So, Bowser tanked a temperature anywhere within this range unscathed.

BoomStick: So... still pretty damn impressive! Plus, he already tanks 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit lava on a regular basis which is the same temperature as his fire breath! Speaking of lava when Bowser falls in it... well you see y'know how the undead version of a Koopa is a dry bones? So, when Bowser falls into lava he becomes Dry Bowser!


Dry Bowser skeleton

Wiz: Wait, hold up! Lava melts him to bones BUT when he falls into a sun he is unscathed?!

BoomStick: The power of inconsistency Wiz!

Wiz: Indeed. Anyway, As Dry Bowser his fire breath increases in power able to shoot blue fire instead of orange fire. Blue fire is twice as hot as orange fire so since Bowser's standard fire breath is 2,000 degrees Farenheit his blue fire breath is 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Also he gains the regeneration of a Dry Bones, able to re-form if broken into pieces.

BoomStick: However, this form i'snt nearly as durable as Bowser normally is and he can be killed if the pieces are separated far enough or just by dropping a high enough height.

Wiz: Dry Bowser just like Dry Bones's is immune to fire attacks. He also has even higher jumping ability and can make lava rise just by roaring!

BoomStick: Cool form but that's nothing compared to Bowser's ultimate, most powerful form... BEHOLD THE BADASS GIGA BOWSER



Wiz: When Giga Bowser he is a much more gigantic size and as you can see a much scarier look.

BoomStick: Complete with a shell of new, gold,razor sharp-spikes and everything! But, there's way more to Giga Bowser than just size and intimidation. He's way stronger and more durable by massive levels. His fire breath is upgraded to fiery lava breath, along with a bunch of other new powers. He's got dark matter punches, can freeze enemies into icicles by spinning his shell, can electrocute them by hitting them with the spikes, and will cause an explosion when he does a headbutt. Plus, he has a regular giant form of himself which makes him strong enough to lift Princess Peach's entire castle.

Wiz: Overall, Bowser is a formidable foe... when his mind is set straight.

BoomStick: Yeah, he's kinda a total dumbass. This is the reason he keeps losing to a damn plumber. He keeps falling for his own switch traps. He's easily tricked.

Wiz: Technically, he has defeated Mario once but it wasn't legitimate. You see, Bowser stole the star rod, an all powerful weapon which grants any wish so Bowser wished to make himself invincible so he could beat Mario.

BoomStick: Yeah, but he at least he does manage to get his hands on Mario's girl a lot. Come on Wiz, I think we all know what he does with Peach behind the scenes hehe... he wins in my book.

Wiz: ... Shut up. Anyway, overall when Bowser gets his act together you don't want to mess with him.

( Shows Kamek using magic on Bowser when Bowser falls into lava. Several seconds later, a giant Bowser pops out of the lava killing Kamek. Bowser roars in anger and starts clawing and breaking down walls trying to get to and kill Mario.)



Wiz: In the kingdom of Hyrule,it's hero Link fights all sorts of monsters but none compare to Hyrule's ultimate threat, the beast Ganon.

BoomStick: But before he became this fearsome beast he was once only a man named Ganondorf who was born the only male Gerudo in over hundreds of years.

Wiz: Ganondorf sought power and went to Hyrule's King to gain the triforce of power to make him have the power of a demon by being infused with dark magic and yes he was still in his human form.

BoomStick: But of course as we all know the hero Link always defeats him with the power of the triforce of courage and various powerful weaponry.

Wiz: Though, Ganondorf is still extremely powerful. First off, he has light magic able to shoot light magic energy balls but they can be reflected.

BoomStick: But what's way better is his dark magic! With his dark magic Ganondorf can summon a large dark energy ball, produce an explosion of dark energy, a wave of dark energy that can immobilize foes (but strong foes can will themselves out of it) dark energy shockwaves, and even dark energy infused punches and kicks.

Wiz: But he has many more powers beyond these energy attacks. Ganondorf can summon large streams of electricity through a sword, teleport short distances, levitate, fly, has a fire ring, summon ghostly horse knights to assist him in combat, trap foes in a crystal, and can create force shields.

BoomStick: Ganondorf also has weapons like his swords. First are the swords of demise. They possess a dark elemental attribute, can summon sword beam-like projectiles, which can be fired whenever he wishes, and Ganon is capable of channelling dark magic into the blades. Best of all, thanks to the dark attribute the more consecutive hits Ganondorf gets in, the more powerful his attacks become. And the Sword of Sages, a sword originally owned by the Sage of Water that was intended to execute Ganon. Instead, Ganon was merely temporarily sealed and he took the sword as his own when he was freed. It is powerful with evil-slaying properties.

Wiz: But finally this is all trumped by Ganondorf's ultimate much more powerful and giant form of himself, the beast Ganon.



BoomStick: Alongside a stat-boost, this form lets him teleport, breathe fire, shoot fireballs, create flaming bats from said fireballs, fire a scattershot of energy blasts from his trident, create portals to various dimensions, fire projectiles from the tusks on his shoulders, and charge a sphere of dark energy and release it. Also, he can suck light out of areas to limit enemy sight.

Wiz: Ganondorf/Ganon is strong enough to collapse Hyrule castle, durable enough to survive getting crushed by it, getting stabbed through the heart by the sword of sages and the master sword, and fast enough to dodge light arrows and keep up with Link while he has the Pegasus boots. Overall, he is an extremely powerful demonic being who is very cunning and clever.

BoomStick: You better be sure you're strong enough when facing off against the ultimate demon King.

( Ganondorf is shown fighting Link shooting energy balls at him.)


Wiz: Alright, the combatants are set! Let's end this debate once and for all.

BoomStick: It's time for a death battle!!!!!!!!



Bowser is sitting in his throne room with some Koopa and Goomba minions. Suddenly a Goomba walks in holding a piece of the triforce of power. However, suddenly a rip of dark energy forms around it and a demonic man emerges from it none other than Ganondorf. Ganondorf shoots an energy blast disintegrating the Goombas and Koopas. This makes Bowser angrily jump up roaring but the triforce energy blasts Bowser through a concrete wall falling down on a platform surrounded by lava outside his castle. Ganondorf jumps down landing in front of Bowser. Ganondorf picks up the triforce piece and connects it back to the triforce symbol on his hand regaining his full power.

Ganondorf: This piece belongs to me, you shouldn't have taken it fat turtle.

Bowser: I don't care, that doesn't mean you destroy my army members! Go crawl back underground ugly zombie.

Bowser clenches his fists and prepares fire breath as Ganondorf is glowing with dark energy.

Real deal

Bowser blasts the stream of fire breath while at the same time Ganondorf shoots a large dark energy ball at Bowser. Ganondorf is engulfed and burned by the fire while Bowser is hit by the blast and shows he is hurt but doesn't flinch. Bowser then gets in his shell and rams at Ganondorf jabbing him with the spikes on his spiked shell. But Ganondorf then blasts a dark energy wave all around him immobilizing Bowser and then produces a small dark energy explosion knocking Bowser back and shoots a dark energy shockwave hitting Bowser as well. Ganondorf then proceeds attack by running at Bowser and hitting him with dark energy punches hurting him but Bowser counters by punching back multiple times hard with his extreme strength knocking Ganondorf down.

Bowser then throws Ganondorf towards the castle and Bowser gets in his clown car flying back with him back into the castle throwing him but Ganondorf teleports to the nearby chandelier to their left as Bowser flying in his clown car starts shooting bullet bills, mechakoopas, bowling balls, spiked bombs, and laser beams all at Ganondorf but Ganondorf shields from it all with a force shield. Ganondorf then throws a dark energy ball at Bowser knocking him out of the clown car as Bowser teleports onto the right chandelier.

Ganondorf starts shooting light energy balls but Bowser easily punches them reflecting them back hitting Ganondorf with his own attack which hurts him a lot. Bowser then breathes a meteor hitting, burning, and exploding on Ganondorf while shooting a spike from his shell at the chandelier's chain causing it to detach from the ceiling sending Ganondorf plummetting down with it. Bowser laughs.

However, Bowser is suddenly hit with a blast of electricity electrocuting him. This was from a now flying Ganondorf in front of him who then starts jabbing and slashing him with the swords of demise causing bleeding. But Bowser then rips the chandelier he is standing on from it's chain and in mid-air he smacks Ganondorf hard with it sending him to the ground and then throws it at Ganondorf crushing him underneath it. Bowser laughs again.

However, the chandelier suddenly explodes to bits from dark energy eruption as Ganondorf gets up now in his new form as Ganon. Ganon breathes a stream of fire as Bowser shoots a stream of fire back. The fire collides with each other at a standstill until Ganon soon stops and fires a sphere of dark energy hurting Bowser and proceeds by repeatedly hitting him with a barrage of energy blasts. Ganon then runs up and rams at Bowser but Bowser transforms into a boulder and crashes into Ganon hurting him. But Ganon then angrily Rams Bowser in his face which is not Boulder protected knocking him out of Boulder form with his tusks smashing him through a nearby wall leading outside once more. Ganon then rams Bowser harder knocking him up in the air as he sets up a portal which Bowser falls into and another portal that is above the lava pit. Bowser falls down screaming and then landing in the lava as Ganon laughs.

However, suddenly roaring is heard as the lava quickly rises upwards which Ganon dodges by flying upwards. Bowser is now Dry Bowser who jumps up in his skeletal form landing on the bridge. Dry Bowser shoots multiple blue fireballs at Ganon as Ganon tries to counter with his own fireballs but the blue fire overpowers it hitting and burning Ganon. Ganon gets annoyed and blasts another dark energy ball which blasts Dry Bowser to pieces. Ganon laughs again.

But, the pieces start reforming as Dry Bowser is entering a new form becoming gigantic and horrfying looking with a razor sharp spiked shell with gold spikes. This is Giga Bowser. Giga Bowser jumps up and grabs Ganon slamming him to the ground. Giga Bowser breathes lava breath on Ganon melting some of skin. Ganon retaliates, breathing fire on Giga Bowser's face hurting him, blasts energy blasts at him, and then jabs him with his tusks knocking him back a little.

Ganon then tries to ram him but Giga Bowser punches Ganon with a dark energy punch and then head-butts him causing an explosion. Giga Bowser then implaes Ganon with his razor-sharp gold spikes severely hurting him and then Giga Bowser picks Ganon up and with all of his might and strength rips him in half! Giga Bowser then breathes lava breath all over his two-halves disintegrating Ganon comepletely.



BoomStick: Bowser, we now crown you the new king of evil.

Wiz: Ganondorf/Ganon's dark magic may be pretty powerful but he was ultimately outclassed by Bowser's advantages in strength, speed, and durability. When comparing strength Bowser has has lifted Peach’s castle, punched his own castle knocking it far away, even destroyed it, lifted and physically overpowered a mechanized version of his own castle, pulled an entire island to shore, chucked a massive cannonball ball several times bigger than he is into his own fortress. This cannonball is generally estimated to weigh within the range of 13,000 to 40,000 tons and Bowser had overpowered the combined strength of his minions while pushing a giant statue against them.

BoomStick: Ganon is considered to be physically stronger than Link putting his strength at over 1,000 tons but still nowhere near Bowser's level. What are Ganondorf's greatest strength feats? He only simply collapsed Hyrule castle and destroyed a large chunk of a tower and both of these he was in beast form.

Wiz: In speed Ganondorf can dodge light arrows and keep up with Link when he has his Pegasus boots but Bowser can travel around planets and galaxies at faster than light speeds especially with his teleportation which allows him to travel a lot farther than Ganondorf's.

BoomStick: In durability, Bowser has survived falling into a miniature sun, falling into a black hole, his entire castle falling on him, multiple massive explosions, hell the guy has even casually taken a bath in acid. Ganondorf has also survived his castle falling on him and has been stabbed through the heart by the master sword and sword of sages but nothing like a sun or a black hole. Hell, he barely survived the master sword stab.

Wiz: Ultimately, the difference in strength, speed, and durablity is abundantly clear...

BoomStick: But wait! "Can't Ganondorf only be killed by holy weapons?" - Inevitable stupid comment.

Wiz: ... NO! That is a BS NO LIMITS FALLACY! Holy weapons are simply just his weakness which is the best way of killing him. There is no proof that he can't be killed by other things plus he has been beaten to near death by non-holy weapons like the megaton hammer and biggoron hammer.

BoomStick: Yeah, the holy weapons thing is really a huge load of shit. Be honest, if Pre-Crisis Superman punched Ganondorf with a 10 octillion megaton infinite mass punch do you really think Ganondorf would survive just because it i'snt a " holy punch?" If you answered " yes" see a doctor.

Wiz: Ultimately, Bowser's far superior strength and durability surpassed Ganondorf and Ganon, plus combined along with Bowser's many more versatile abilities all made this really impossible for Ganondorf or Ganon to win no matter how many magical abilities he had.

BoomStick: Ganon got sent to shell.

Wiz: The winner is Bowser.
