Ganondorf appears as an unlockable character in Super Smash Brothers Royale. His immense power throughout his moveset allows him to turn the tide of the match at a moment's notice.
Changes from Brawl to RoyaleEdit
- Walk and dash speed notably faster.
- Almost all of his attacks have less starting, ending, and landing lag. The re-addition of L-cancelling helps as well.
- Ganondorf now uses his sword, giving him much more reach. Most of his new sword attacks are less laggy.
- Grab range increased tremendously.
- Down aerial is much faster.
- Back and forward throws have much higher knockback.
- New dash attack is slower and less powerful.
- Because he has a new down special, he can no longer perform the Flight Of Ganon.
- Rolls and spot dodges are slower. Rolls go less distance as well.
- Darkness effect is generally more prominent in his attacks.

Special moves Edit
Neutral Special: Dead Man's Volley - Shoots a ball of lightning forward. Cancels out any projectile hitbox, but can be deflected by any non-projectile hitbox infinitely. Re-using the move will deflect the ball back. 10%.
Side Special: Flame Choke - Rushes forward and grabs the opponent by the face, then slams them into the ground. In the air, it is a potent suicide KO move. 12%.
Up Special: Dead Man's Drift - Floats, gaining a lot of horizontal, but average vertical distance. Slow, but good recovery.
Down Special: Red Ice - Imprisons his opponent in red ice. Very slow, but an excellent set-up move, can be comboed into almost any of Ganondorf's moves.
