Demise is the final boss in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.


Long before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Demise led a hoard of monsters through the earth and led a conquest for the Triforce. Soon after the invasion began however, he was defeated by the goddess Hylia, and was sealed in the Sacred Realm.

Years later and during the events of the game, he attempts to escape in the form of The Imprisoned. However, he is repelled by the combined strength of Link and Groose.

Eventually, Link gets the Triforce, and defeats Demise for good.

Later, His faithful servant, Ghirahim, forces Zelda to come back in time with the Gate of Time. There he begins a ritual to revive Demise. However, Link shows up and finishes Ghirahim, but he is too late to stop Demise. Demise begins to suck up Zelda's soul, but he notices Link and duels him to the death. To his great surprise, Link defeats him, and with his dying breath, he lays the following curse on Link and Zelda:

"Extraordinary. You stand as a paragon of your kind, human. You fight like no human or demon I have ever known. Though this is not the end. My hate... never perishes. It is born anew in a cycle with no end! I will rise again. Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero... They are eternally bound to this curse. An incarnation of my hatred shall ever follow your kind, dooming them to wander a blood-soaked sea of darkness for all time!"

After Demise's death, he is locked in the Master Sword for all eternity.
