The final battle in A Link to the Past is one the most classic final bosses in the entire Zelda series. Ganon finally reveals himself, and Link fulfills his destiny as the Legendary Hero and defeats him once and for all, claiming the Triforce as his own. Today’s choice for Fanart Friday by loboborges of DeviantArt depicts this epic battle in full, perfectly capturing the atmosphere and essence of the final fight.
As a six-year-old when the game came out, I was enthralled by the world of A Link to the Past and the challenges it presented. A Link to the Past was the first Zelda game I owned for myself and it holds a very special place in my heart, along with some of my most cherished childhood memories. The final battle epitomized the challenge of the game for me, and this painting by loboborges perfectly depicts the battle as I remember it, which is why it is my pick for today’s Fanart Friday.
