Ganondorf (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Medium humanoid (gerudo), neutral evil
Saving Throws Str +7 (with advantage), Con +14 (with advantage), Wis +10, Cha +11
Ancestral Arms. Ganondorf has a +1 bonus on damage rolls with scimitars (included in the attack).
Dark Brute. A melee weapon deals one extra die of its damage when Ganondorf hits with it (included in the attack), which deals necrotic damage instead of the weapon's normal type. Ganondorf's weapon attacks are magical.
Ganon (1/Day). While he has access to the Triforce of Power, if Ganondorf is reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, he immediately transforms into Ganon. His statistics, including hit points and alignment, are replaced with those of Ganon. He does not regain magic points or uses of Legendary Resistance, however. This transformation absolves him of all conditions, poisons, and diseases other than death and petrification. This transformation persists until he uses an action to end it, he is killed, or he loses access to the Triforce of Power.
Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If Ganondorf fails a saving throw, he can choose to succeed instead.
Spell Resistance. Ganondorf has advantage on saving throws against spells.
Spellcasting. Ganondorf is a 16th-level spellcaster, and has 94 magic points. His spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with spell attacks). Ganondorf knows the following witch spells, which he can cast without material components:
Multiattack. Ganondorf makes three scimitar attacks, or two attacks otherwise.
Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (1d12 + 7) bludgeoning damage plus 6 (1d12) necrotic damage.
Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (1d6 + 8) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) necrotic damage.
Moblin Spear. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 21 (1d12 + 15) piercing damage plus 6 (1d12) necrotic damage.
Ganondorf can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. Ganondorf regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.
Attack (Costs 2 Actions). Ganondorf makes one unarmed strike.
Cantrip (Costs 2 Actions). Ganondorf casts one cantrip.
Ganondorf, former gerudo king, is the most infamous humanoid in all of Hyrulean history. Through the Triforce of Power, he has attained near-immortality. Over millennia, he or his other incarnations has sought to violently overthrow the Kingdom of Hyrule, oppose the will of the gods, and even destroy the entire Light World. Every time the heroes of Hyrule seem to have stopped his plans, slain him outright, or even turned him into solid stone, he finds a way of returning to become the scourge of Hyrule once again.
These statistics assume Ganondorf has the Triforce of Power, and will transform into Ganon when his hit points are under half. For a version of this character without such capabilities, see Ganondorf, Dethroned (5e Creature).
