Wizzro is a villain in Hyrule Warriors. Before his current form, he was a ring that became powerful over many centuries by luring in numerous people and absorbing the powers of his wearers. Cia used her dark magic to give life to the ring, being reborn in the form of a wizard.[1] As a result of her being his creator, he pledges allegiance to Cia. However, Wizzro has a tendency to follow those in power due to his previous experiences. Being a master of disguise, he can change his appearance at will.[2]

As a result of being a wizard, Wizzro uses spatial and dark magic to attack.[3] Similar to Gohma, a magic bullet-like pulse can be emitted that takes advantage of the power of darkness. Wizzro can create a large hand from under his robe and try to snatch warriors, and he can also call upon creatures from the darkness to pounce on enemies.

Story

Spoiler Alert! This section describes a subject that is sensitive to plot development.

Wizzro was awakened by Cia inside Eldin Caves, where he joined her willingly. However, Cia was suspicious of his motives as he joined too willingly. Her suspicions were eventually confirmed when Wizzro decided to aid one of the King Dodongo's used by Volga's forces to attack Cia and Hyrule, forcing her to fight and defeat Wizzro. Afterwards, she had placed Wizzro and Volga (whom she had intended to recruit in the first place) under her dark magic, deciding that their free will would prove to be troublesome for her. Wizzro commands the force of monsters Cia sends to attack Hyrule Castle at the beginning of the game. Following Volga's retreat and the awakening on Link's Triforce of Courage, the dark wizard summons King Dodongo to distract the Hyrulean forces while he abducts Princess Zelda. Unbeknownst to either side, Zelda slips away in the confusion, disguising herself as Sheik.

Wizzro returns in the Eldin Caves, trying to stop Impa and Link's forces from reaching Faron Woods. He personally joins the battle when the Hyruleans send a pair of Bombchus to clear the path to the exit, but he is defeated and forced to retreat to his base in Faron Woods. When the Hyrulean Army - now merged with Lana's troops - comes to Wizzro's lair in Faron Woods, the dark entity flees once again, leaving Gohma to attack the heroes.

When Cia opens the Gate of Souls, Wizzro travels to the Era of Myth. Disguising himself as Zelda, he goes to Death Mountain and incites the Goron leader Darunia to violence against the Zora people. By the time Impa and Sheik bring Darunia to his senses, Wizzro has taken over the Water Temple in Lake Hylia, forcing the Gorons and Hyruleans to enlist the aid of Princess Ruto to open the way to "Zelda's" base. Wizzro used his disguise to lower the Hylian forces' morale, although Sheik and Impa manage to dissuade their doubts. When his main base is breached, Wizzro summons the local version of King Dodongo to attack Darunia and Ruto's forces, leaving Impa and Sheik to battle him. After defeating the evil sorcerer, Sheik uses the Mirror of Truth to break Wizzro's disguise and force him to retreat again - in the process, the mysterious Sheikah is also revealed to be the true Princess Zelda.

Wizzro makes one final attempt to stop the Hyrulean Army at the Temple of the Sacred Sword, the resting place of the Master Sword. Using his dark power, the evil wizard takes control of the ghostly soldiers defending the temple, leading them against Zelda's army in the guise of Lana. When Link defeats the fake to break its control over the Ghost Soldiers, Wizzro flees to the depths of the temple, allowing Link to claim the Master Sword. He makes a final attempt to kill the hero as he draws the mystical blade, but the sacred power proves too much for him, forcing him to retreat to the other side of the temple and summon reinforcements. After being defeated before his army can slay Princess Zelda, Wizzro directs the Hyrulean Army to the Temple of Souls, warning them that his master, Cia, will not be pleased by his defeat.
