Ghirahim (ギラヒム, Girahimu) is a playable character as well as a villain in Hyrule Warriors. Players can unlock him in the game's Adventure Mode. He originally appeared as a villain in Skyward Sword.

Role in GameEdit

Though sealed away in ancient times, he was revived with others evils into the current setting. Ghirahim schemes to validate his title once again.

Character InformationEdit

DevelopmentEdit

An interview with Game Informer reveals that Ghirahim was originally intended to be a non-controllable character until fans expressed a strong interest in playing as him.

PersonalityEdit

Elegant and prideful, Ghirahim is passionately in love with himself. His true ruthlessness and cruelty is unleashed when and if he is provoked to anger. In contrast to Fi, Ghirahim is flamboyant, emotional and expressive. Many of his attacks are accompanied by sinister laughter.

At the end of Chapter 14 ("Ganondorf's Return"), Ghirahim comments that Ganondorf reminds him of his master, Demise. This references Ganondorf being said to be the reincarnation of Demise at the end of Skyward Sword.

Y, X, X, X: Does an uppercut slash with two swords that launches enemies upward. He then performs a flurry of jabs at the airborne enemies. He then makes a symbol on the ground to telekinetically slam enemies into a magic ceiling above.

Y, Y, Y, X, X, X: Ghirahim raises his sword skyward and ignites it, and then sends a fiery energy wave forward. He then makes causes shadow swords erupt out of the ground around him, then summons Bokoblins to charge forward while swinging their weapons wildly.
Y, Y, Y, Y, X: Ghirahim rises into the air on a magic platform, and comes down, smashing the ground with his fists powered by demonic energy, creating a large shockwave.
Y, Y, Y, Y, Y: Ghirahim slashes the enemy, fires two rounds of knives forward, slashes the enemy three more times while teleporting around, makes a cross-slash with two swords, and finishes with an overhead smash from his broadsword which creates a shockwave of dark energy.

Red Thread Attacks
These attacks will remain mostly the same as the normal moveset, albeit with an added effect. Only the added effects will get listed here.
X: Ghirahim fires off knives that home on to his linked enemy.
Y, X, X, X: During the upward slash, a large black sword erupts from underneath the linked target, sending it flying towards Ghirahim. He then finishes his attack like normal.
Y, Y, X, X, X: At the part where Ghirahim transforms into his sword form, columns of light will surround the linked target and bind it, rendering it immobile.
Y, Y, Y, X, X, X: At the part where the shadow swords erupt out of the ground around Ghirahim, another large flaming shadow sword will erupt from underneath the linked target, dealing damage and knockback.

Fighting StyleEdit

Ghirahim is a tricky character to use. He can morph his body at will to attack with a variety of blade sizes and sword styles. He changes his position using teleportation and may bombard his foe with magic spells or summon demons to assist him. His heavy attack allow him to focus his attacks on a singular enemy, so players must learn to juggle between crowd controls and duels.

Homages
  • When Ghirahim activates Focus Spirit, he transforms into the form he used in his final battle with Link in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
  • The thread used in his Strong Attack is a reference to a line spoken by Ghirahim to Link in their second encounter, "You and I, we're bound by a thread of fate".
