When Skyward Sword was released, many wondered who the main villain of the game would be, as it took place pre-Ocarina of Time and before the time of Ganondorf. Demise was alluded to by his servant Ghirahim throughout the game, but it wasn’t until the end that we were able to witness his true form.

The final battle with Demise is one of the most epic boss battles the Zelda series has ever put forth, taking place in the realm of Demise, which gives him the upper hand. Link becomes victorious, but Demise puts up a tremendously difficult fight.

Today’s pick for Fanart Friday, “VsDemise” by R-SRaven of DeviantArt, is a drawing depicting this battle which so large in both size and scope. Being one of my personal favorite battles in the franchise to date, this is why I picked “VsDemise” by R-SRaven for today’s Fanart Friday.

    That was a difficult battle. I forgot to use the lightning to charge the sword, the 1st time I played it. My left arm got tired from using the shield. It was an epic Boss fight. I loved it.
    This picture is epic, too.

    VERY awesome. I loved this fight too. Yeah it gets easier when you know the tricks (like in any video game) but the atmosphere puts it right up there with OoT’s ending

    That fight was so hard, my wiimote kept glitching on me… But it was absolutely epic.
