Vaati is both a playable character and a boss character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. As of September 6, 2019, he now appears playable in his base form from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. His final form appears as a Level 3 Hyper Combo and a hidden boss after defeating Abyss in the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 style and Galactus in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 style. Mitsuki Saiga provides the role for Vaati in his base form of this fighting game.
Peace returned briefly to Hyrule as Vaati was presumed dead, until he one day reappeared to terrorize the land once more. No longer remembering his days as a Picori, Vaati kidnapped many beautiful maidens and brought them to the Palace of Winds in the sky that he had taken. At that moment, a hero wielding the legendary Four Sword appeared. Using the sword, he split his body in four to defeat Vaati and seal him away inside the Four Sword in the Four Sword Sanctuary.
The seal on Vaati was apparently weakened over time, and a long time later Vaati managed to break out of his prison within the Four Sword. In order to commemorate his return, Vaati kidnapped Princess Zelda and took her to his palace to become his bride. After traveling over three different lands and the dungeons they contained, the four Links confronted the wind mage in the Palace of Winds, the seat of Vaati's power. After an arduous battle between the sorcerer and the heroes, Link was able to reseal Vaati into the Four Sword's blade.
Vaati has two forms in this game. The first is Vaati possessing a statue of himself, encased in armor, similar to the Vaati's Transformation form from later in The Minish Cap, and the battle is very much like the battle against Cyclok in the later Phantom Hourglass. In the second form, he appears as he does in the opening cutscene.
