“Ganon Style” is a “Gangnam” Parody

ChristinaNovember 26th, 2012 by Christina

Korean pop star, Psy, captivated the world with his upbeat and catchy song, “Gangnam Style.” With it recently becoming the most watched video on YouTube ever, it’s no surprise that fans all over are making their own versions of the song. One fan in particular–YouTuber ChuckeMadness–has created a parody titled “Ganon Style.” He tells the story of Ganondorf and his quest to conquer Hyrule all while dancing around with various other characters from the series. If you are curious to know more, make the jump and watch the video.

The first time I heard this song, I thought it was silly. I never thought it would gain in popularity like it has, but I like “Ganon Style”; it’s a fun, new way to look at the story. The only thing the video leaves me to wonder about is why Majora was in it. Ganondorf wasn’t even in that game, but I guess he wanted to add a diverse amount of characters to the video.

Do you guys like “Ganon Style?” Are there Zelda characters left out of the video you would have put in, or was someone in there that you would have taken out? Let us know in the comments!

  • Mcgee

    This is a super geek comment, but, they used masks from the only Zelda game that doesn’t have Gannon in it….

    • Gerry

      First, it’s Ganon. Next, Ganon wasn’t in either oracle game (except when linked), Zelda II (ending screen doesn’t really count), Four Swords, Minish Cap, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and Skyward Sword.

      • Zero

        And Link’s Awakening

      • Linkfan99


        (Link’s Awakening)

      • Zelda is the Bomb!!!

        It can spelled either way

        • Cosmo

          No it can’t. Gannon was a mistake that has since been fixed.

          • The Hylian Monolith

            It’s not a mistake, that’s just how it was. Like the TP bosses, they all have the word “Twilit” in their titles, not “Twilight”.

          • Linkfan99

            It was a mistake. It was an improper translation from Japanese, it was spelled “Ganon” in the manual, but it was misspelled “Gannon” in the game. It was then corrected in future games.
            “Twilit” is intended to be spelled like that. Think of it like this:
            “Light” is a thing. When something is “Lit”, it is affected by light. They did somewhat of a play-on-words to make it “TwiLIT”, instead of “Twilight”.

          • SwordMaster

            Curse you, I was about to comment nearly the exact same thing before I saw this… the only thing different I was going to say is many people think of (or refer to) gannon as a seperate person to Ganon/Ganondorf

          • billy

            same here haha

          • The Hylian Monolith

            I know that, but some DIDN’T READ THE MANUAL, so they spell it differently for nonstalgia. They’re allowed to. even if it is a mistranslation, and even if that was a typo, I say that anyone can spell it however they want.

            And I totally know about the Twilit thing. I was just using an example. I was half-asleep. A better one might be the bird statue in front of the Skyview Temple. It’s called the Forest Temple, even though the dungeon barely has a forest theme. Better now?

          • Linkfan99

            Not to argue, but it was titled “Forest Temple” because it was a temple IN a forest. And also, spelling Ganon that way may be intentional, but it does officially count as a reason to be GANNON BANNED.


        • Linkfan99

          NOPE. Not true.
          GANON BANNED.

      • The Hylian Monolith

        It’s spelled Gannon in the original Zelda. Some fans that began with the original are like that. And it’s “Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, OR Skyward Sword” when you put it like that.

        • ralphpotato

          Actually, it was a translation error only from the story in the NES version on the main screen. Ganon was spelled properly in the Famicom version (which was in English), and it was spelled properly in the manual.

          “Gannon” is an error.

          • TrollfaceTriforce

            “I second that!”
            “Sit down, Mr Yateman!”

          • The Hylian Monolith

            Thank you. Thank you, very much. I stand for you.
            I stated my reasoning above, I don’t need to retype it all.

        • Linkfan99

          Nope, the proper english translation is Ganon.

          • The Hylian Monolith

            Your point is? I explained it above.

            Oh, go ahead. Thunbs-down me. I’m from the Green Court, and I feel that there is no feeling like the hate of a very large group of people all diretcted at a single person. Ahh…so refreshing. I love getting a lot of dislikes some days.

          • Linkfan99

            So… disliking a silly comment is now classified as “hating” someone? Wow. I never thought someone would take it like that. And also, that wasn’t even me who disliked your comment. Seriously, look at my “votes” in my profile. And wow. So now if someone simply “dislikes” a comment, it classifies as “hating” the person themself. I’ll take that into consideration next time I think about “thumbsing” someone down, which I didn’t in this case.

          • The Hylian Monolith

            Well…no. But it is a dislike, which compressed and compacted could totally pass for hate. And I get a lot of hate at Ren Faire, so I like it. I was kind of exaggerating there to be humorous, and it’s all right if I fail. Someone might thumbs-down me. Take that in…I love the smell of dislikes in the late evening.

            But no, a dislike is just a disagreement. Here’s to disgareeing people!

    • Gerry

      Also, the zora and goron masks were also in Ocarina of Time.

      • http://www.facebook.com/drake.wietstock Drake Wietstock

        You mean Majora’s Mask, I believe.

    • Linkfan99


    • Linkfan99

      “ONLY Zelda game”?

      1. Zelda 2 Adventure of Link

      2. Link’s Awakening

      3. Oracle of Seasons

      4. Oracle of Ages

      5. Four Swords

      6. Minish Cap

      7. Spirit Tracks

      8. Skyward Sword

      May I point out that that is (including MM) over HALF of the zelda games that don’t have gaNon in them?

      • Kyle Rogers

        actually when u die in zelda II it says return of ganon so that counts right?

        • Linkfan99

          Well, he’s not actually in the game, he’s just in the ENDgame. But nevertheless, my point still stands.

      • Gaseous Snake

        According to SS, Demise created all evil. Therefore Ganon, Vaati, and all of the others are of the same being.

        • Linkfan99

          yes, but GANON himself isn’t actually in those games, just some other form or entity of the same evil.

          • faror

            i agree. its like saying pokemon red and pokemon yellow are the same.

      • zombie_eat_flesh

        You forgot Phantom Hourglass…

        • Linkfan99

          Don’t you mean “You Phorgot Phantom Hourglass”???

          …Never mind. That was…. just…. no.

      • Guest

        I think what he means is MM is the only GOOD Zelda game with no Ganon.

        • Aaron hill

          the only good ZELDA game with no ganon that is not true

          • Raphael Felipe

            The Oracles do have ganon and link’s fight against link when you link the games is part of the official chronology, so he does appear.
            And also, appart from “Four Swords” that i didn’t had the oportunity to play yet, every single Zelda game listed by Linkfan99 is awesome, including Zelda 2, when you get the hang it becomes awesome, still hard as hell, but awesome.

          • Aaron hill

            i agree with your final estimate

        • Linkfan99

          No way.
          Skyward Sword is amazing, Minish Cap is great, Zelda 2 was awesome, Spirit Tracks was good, and how DARE you call Link’s Awakening bad???

        • Linkfan99

          No. Just no.

      • Turtles!

        Well, if you play the linked ending for the Oracles series, you fight Ganon.

      • Caleb Lauth

        Ganon is a reincarnation of Demise. Ganon appears as a final boss in Link’s Awakening. He appears in the begining of PH. He appears in Oracle of Seasons AND Ages via a linked game. Problem?

        • Linkfan99

          Yes, the Oracle games linked is more of a sub-game, not the separate games themselves. In Phantom Hourglass, that is just in the introduction, not in the part of the actual story. Also, Ganon does not appear in Link’s Awakening. One of the forms of the Nightmare somewhat resembles him, but you can’t tell as he is just a shape, and that is not Ganon himself. Also, yes, Ganon is a reincarnation of Demise, but that does not mean that Ganon is the same as Demise. So yes, you could say I do have a problem.

    • Linkfan99

      mask”S” ?
      The only mask that was in a game without Ganon is the Majora’s Mask, all the others are in OoT.

    • Kyle Rogers

      thats just lame dude.

    • chaoswanderer

      The masks weren’t meant to represent the masks from Majora’s mask, but represent the different races.

      • Chuck-E Madness

        YUP!!! nailed it with that comment…and majoras mask is in it because i absolutely love that mask and had to have it in there! The moon is also in the video, surprised no one said anything about it yet

        • chaoswanderer

          The Zora though didn’t seem as enthusiastic in her dancing as everyone else though. I was wondering what that mask was but I was only half paying attention as I was busy.

        • http://www.facebook.com/drake.wietstock Drake Wietstock

          I did.

  • MsNerrrrrd

    This is random yet awesome at the same time! Brilliant!

    That’s so cheesy, but hilarious and awesome at the same time…

    Heeeeeeeeeeeyy, sexy fairy!

    Hey hey listen hey listen hey hey…

  • RubyDragonCat

    This is the most awesome thing in the world. I wouldve put Twinrova or Nabooru in it, but that’s just me…

    • Hylia

      They mentioned Nabooru in the part about the sages.

  • Person

    I’m a fan of the Ghostbusters/Gangnam Style video, but this is AWESOME.

  • http://twitter.com/Serialmom1964 Anastacia Burns

    So great!!! I wish their costumes were a little better, but the funny lyrics and silly dance moves make up for that!

  • nikki

    love it !!! was funny :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Thompson/100000355411389 Steve Thompson

    As funny as this is, I am defiantly sick of seeing gangnam style being talked about. Its become worse than the portal cake.

    • Amee

      I’m just happy to see a Korean pop song make it into the mainstream, even if it is only for its novelty and fun dance. Now if only more Korean (or Asian in general) acts can make it over here. It would be nice if the Western world can acknowledge that Asians can indeed make good music, and that it isn’t all stereotypically “weird” stuff or all sung by middle-aged chubby non-threatening business men.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Thompson/100000355411389 Steve Thompson

        OH I’m happy its gone mainstream and all. As someone who likes aisan stuff I am happy for that fact. I just got sick of hearing people talk about it everywhere I go. It will eventually happen to everyone just like the cake is a lie. I’m sure people are sick of everyone saying that.

        • http://www.facebook.com/drake.wietstock Drake Wietstock

          You spelled,”Asian” wrong.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Thompson/100000355411389 Steve Thompson

            who cares Mr.Nazi? Seriously I think I hate you people more than Gangnam style.

  • littlemissgleek

    Well, they should’ve had Ghirahim, Dark or Vaati in it. But other than that it was freakin epic. They did an awesome job with the masks and the Link costume was really cool :D

    • The Hylian Monolith

      Oh, I wouldv’e loved to see Nabooru doing that one part…well, I mean. And Girahim would’ve done well in it, too. But it was still awesome.

      • littlemissgleek

        It sure was :)

        • The Hylian Monolith

          Technically, it WAS an OoT video… However, Majora was in it, who says that out pal Girie couldn’t have been in it too? Extra awesomeness, and it wouldn’t exactly have made fans furious, outraged or sick with anger.

          “You got a black horse, part of the Trforce…

    Born in Gerudo Valley around a bunch of women
    One man born every 100 years, how does that even happen?
    It probably drove him crazy and made him go insane
    So he broke the bridge and trapped them in there

    And with the sages’ aide: Saria, Ruto, Impa, Darunia, Nabooru’s aide
    I will defeat you in your castle with the sages’ aide
    They built a rainbow bridge and it..it looks strange but that’s ok
    I sware that it’s ok

    You’ve got a black horse, part of the Triforce, and you want more
    You want it all (Hey!)
    I won’t let you, so I will guard you
    I said no, I said no, you will never ever ever get Hyrule

    Just the lyrics, if anyone wants them.

    • RubyDragonCat

      Nice, but I remember something about the water temple in there too :)

      • Hylia

        That’s later in the song, during the bridge. This is only the first verse and chorus.

        Also, instead of “how does that even happen”, I think it’s “how’d that even happen”. Correcting myself here.
