Ghirahim is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with the other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. 4 on June 30, 2016. Anri Katsu provides the role for Ghirahim, using voice clips recycled from Hyrule Warriors in this fighting game.


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 unleashing 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. Link successfully eradicates Demise with the Triforce in his time, but Ghirahim kidnapped 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.
