Ghirahim is portrayed as a flamboyant, seemingly calm, overconfident opponent whose only goal is to capture Zelda and use her to revive Demise, his master. His mannerisms are exaggerated and theatrical, speaking in an eloquent, flashy style when addressing others. Ghirahim is also conceited and vain when it comes to flaunting his own appearance, which he regards as "stunning," "exquisite," and "pure." He acts formally and politely towards Link, at first claiming to be "uncivil" since he had not yet properly introduced himself to the young hero when they first met. Despite this, he is not above insulting others and calling them juvenile names, mocking them at any chance he gets. Since he considers himself to be superior to humans and an honorable fighter, he at first chooses not to murder Link immediately as it would be unfair for the young hero.Nonetheless, Ghirahim enjoys toying with others and making them suffer until he has been satisfied.
However, when things do not go the way he plans, the Demon Lord loses his composure and becomes an erratic, violent fiend who seeks to take out his anger on someone else while satisfying his "strong appetite for bloodshed." In reality, Ghirahim shows himself to be a merciless, uncontrollable lunatic who merely hungers for battle and the brutal massacre of his enemies. This is demonstrated several times throughout the game; he first claims that he will beat Link to "within an inch of [his] life", then promises to deafen his ears with the "shrill sound of [his] own screams", and lastly says that he will beat Link senseless to deliver a final blow, thus "snuffing out the flame of [his] life." Despite all his disturbing and ruthless threats, Ghirahim can never best Link and becomes incredibly frustrated, outraged, and aggravated at the fact that a mere human could defeat him.Tutorials: Commission by ~rturner1313.
