He is one of the four phantoms (known as the Blight Ganons) of Calamity Ganon that took control of the Divine Beasts.[2] He is found either atop the Divine Beast Vah Medoh or in the center of Hyrule Castle if he is not already defeated. Windblight Ganon is responsible for the death of Revali.[3]

Link will need protection from the cold to resist cold damage during this fight. The battle with Windblight Ganon atop Medoh has two main phases. During his first phase, Windblight Ganon will fly and teleport around the area, shooting a gun at Link that fires powerful blue energy. Revali warns Link that his aim is spot on.[4] He will also sometimes send a large tornado at Link. Link must shoot arrows at Windblight Ganon to inflict damage while he is in the air. Link can use one of the many air ducts in the area to glide up and shoot Windblight Ganon from the air. He will occasionally land on the ground where Link can use melee weapons on him. Once Link gets his health halfway down, the second phase will begin and Windblight Ganon will change his strategy. He sends four small objects into the air which charge blue energy between each other before shooting at Link. Link must avoid these attacks as well as Windblight Ganon's attacks. If Link manages to shoot one of the floating objects with an arrow, Windblight Ganon will fall and become temporarily disabled. If Link shoots Windblight Ganon with an arrow enough times in quick succession, he will fall to the ground and become stunned for a short period of time.

Once Link has defeated him, Windblight Ganon will explode and Link will be rewarded with a Heart Container.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Windblight Ganon appears in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, filling roughly the same role he did during Breath of the Wild. Unlike his appearance in Breath of the Wild, he now bears a second and larger hand cannon where his original left hand used to be, and he now has four malice tubes plugging into the arms from the back where its options used to stay when inactive (one tube on the right arm and three tubes on the left). He also sports purple glyphs signifying his elemental affinity with wind and has a red eye instead of a blue one.

Windblight Ganon first appears in the "Air and Lighting" Scenario after Calamity Ganon was revived. Windblight Ganon fights with Revali on top of Divine Beast Vah Medoh for the control of the Divine Beast. Before the fatal blow that should have killed Revali had struck, a portal opened out bringing the Rito warrior Teba from 100 years into the future. After Link, Zelda and their allies had saved Urbosa from Thunderblight Ganon they arrived on Divine Beast Vah Medoh to assist Revali and Teba, only for him to retreat. He later reappeared trying to stop both Rito warriors in their tracks while they are destroying enemy camps with Divine Beast Vah Medoh before finally being vanquished.

Windblight Ganon, along with the other Blight Ganons, was later revived by Astor using the souls of a number of Yiga Footsoldiers. Astor then uses the Blight Ganons in the "Each Step Like Thunder" Scenario, aiding him in the Siege of Fort Hateno when trying to end the lives of both Link and Zelda. Windblight Ganon along with his brethren overpowered Link while the knight was stalling the Blight Ganons for Zelda and Impa to escape, but Zelda ended up awakening her powers which temporarily stunned all the Blight Ganons. Windblight Ganon appears again trying to stop the heroes from activating a device made by Purah.

Later, when the heroes lay siege on Hyrule Castle, Windblight Ganon is summoned one final time along with the other Blight Ganons trying to defend Hyrule Castle but is felled by the heroic forces along with his brethren one final time.
