Ganon is a cranky pig villager who first appeared in the Animal Crossing series in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. He originates from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series, where he is the recurring main antagonist of many games. Ganon can be brought into the player's campground and invited to join the village by scanning the amiibo of either Ganondorf, 8-Bit Link, a Bokoblin, or a Guardian. His birthday is the same day the original The Legend of Zelda first released in Japan.
Ganon is a blue pig with glowing, pupil-less yellow eyes. He wears a small, spiked red cap on his head. Out of Ganon's appearances in The Legend of Zelda series, in Animal Crossing he most strongly resembles his designs in the original The Legend of Zelda, the Oracle series, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. His initial outfit is the Ganon Outfit, which is based on his armor from these three games.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Ganon is a cranky villager, meaning he is mature, bitter and adult-like. He appears somewhat rude at first, but is very reliable and friendlier when befriended. He gets along well with most snooty villagers and other cranky neighbors, but will sometimes offend jock and peppy villagers unintentionally, as he does not clearly understand their lifestyle. Ganon has a harsh sense of humor, but is very hospitable and kinder once the player enters his home.
In New Leaf
Ganon's house is themed after The Legend of Zelda and is decorated with the Hyrule Wall and Zelda Floor. It has two Thrones, two Bombs, a Hyrulean Treasure with a Rupee in it, a pile of bones, and two golden screens.
