Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom – How Demise Could Return
Fans of The Legend of Zelda probably know Ganondorf as the series’ most famous bad guy, but in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (also known as BOTW 2), Demise, the series’ most powerful bad guy, could make a comeback. The main bad guy in The Legend of Zelda, Demise, first showed up as the final boss in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He was later revealed to be Ganondorf’s father and Hylia, Link, and Zelda’s first main enemy. Demise gave up his body so that his hatred could be reborn along with the hero and Hylia’s reincarnation. His hatred takes the form of Ganondorf (or Ganon) in all of the Zelda games where he shows up.
Even though Demise was defeated at the end of Skyward Sword, that doesn’t mean he’s gone for good. In the Zelda series, there have been many times when bad guys have come back. Ganondorf is probably the most well-known because he has been in so many games, but he is not the only one in the series. Vaati, a wind mage, has also shown up in games like Zelda: Four Swords (which would be great to bring back for Switch) and The Minish Cap, even though he seemed to have been defeated by an earlier version of Link. Nintendo has shown that it’s okay to bring back enemies that have already been defeated, and Breath of the Wild 2 could be where some unexpected bad guys come back, maybe even Demise.
Even though both The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Breath of the Wild take place in Hyrule, it’s not always clear which version of Hyrule they are in. At one point, Skyward Sword was the first game in the series, but that was before Breath of the Wild came out. There are Easter egg items from Skyward Sword that can be found in Breath of the Wild, but there are also other Easter egg items that make it hard to use these items to figure out where the game fits in the timeline. Considering that Tears of the Kingdom could take place before Skyward Sword or even in a timeline where Skyward Sword never happened, it is possible that Demise is still alive and well.

Aside from the confusing timeline, it’s also possible that Demise could come back to life during Tears of the Kingdom. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Zant tried to bring back Ganondorf. It’s possible that some small-time bad guy is trying to find a way to bring back Demise right now. When Hylia sealed Demise away for the first time, he became the Imprisoned One, and his servant Ghirahim from Skyward Sword freed him in the end.
Nintendo has kept most information about BOTW 2 close to the vest, even after they announced the game’s name. This makes it hard to know what they have planned. If the reincarnation process is broken, Ganon becoming Calamity Ganon could mean that Demise will come back. Fans will just have to wait until May 13, 2023, when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom finally comes out.
