and if you do know his stuff you have probably already seen it. (cuse he uploaded it first)

I love it!
No matter how many time this scene get's reinterpretated, it stays awesome and one of the best Final Bosses in Video Game History!

GO TETRA, GO LINK! KILL 'IM!!! ><

I was super shocked at how badass that last attack was, especially seeing as it was Nintendo and a zelda game. I really didn't expect link to go right for ze brains :)

Jup, when I first saw this scene I was all like:

"O.o... I'm so freakin' glad I didn't play this game when I was 10..."

I mean, OK, it being a Nintendo game wouldn't have thrown me off, but Zelda was always like, you know... Link slashes a few times and the enemy goes POOF. No blood, no wounds, no nothing.

And then suddenly, in The Wind Waker, of all games, Ganondorf gets the most explizit wound possible! THE STABBING WOUND! ><

And there I was thinking Aerith's death or Sora's(termporary) death in Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts were brutal...

But no, brain-stabbing is way, way, WAY worse than back-stabbing and chest-selfimpalement.
WAY WAY WORSE.

Exspecially given that a 12 years old boy is the one doing the stabbing. ><

God, it was awesome...

hahaha indeed even the slash, backslash, stab in the face of Ocarina of time does not approach the wind waker ganon finishing move :)

Wow, that looks cool. I love the flexible poses of them, the coloring style and the expressions. Also, the background adds much to the mood.
Nice work!

Thanks, I liked the game, but the ending let me down a bit story wise. Stupid teefy king of hyrule.
