The Legend of Zelda comic
Ganon as he appears in the Valiant Comics.
In the Legend of Zelda comic published by Valiant Comics, Ganon is usually depicted as a man in a heavy dark blue hooded cloak with no visible face for several issues, although later on he would be sometimes portrayed as the familiar pig-faced monster. Since this comic takes place after the events of The Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link, it is told that Ganon led his minions to attack Hyrule and thus allow him to steal the Triforce of Power. Ganon dwells in the Underworld, with his lair being in Death Mountain, just like in the original The Legend of Zelda. Using the might of the Triforce, Ganon strives to destroy Link and Zelda, steal the Triforce of Wisdom, and take over the kingdom of Hyrule. Ganon goes to great lengths to accomplish his goals, such as manipulating the citizens of the Water Town of Saria into going against Link and Zelda, and disguising himself as Impa to defeat the young hero once and for all. Although his minions follow his every order and are loyal to him, Darknut Prime reveals that they hate their "pig-nosed master even more" than Zelda and Link do.
In The Power, Link manages to steal the Triforce of Power from Ganon and uses it to severely damage the Prince of Darkness with it. Knowing that he is powerless against the might of the Triforce, Ganon barely manages to escape back into the Underworld. However, after Link catches up with him, the young hero traps Ganon inside a cage hanging over a bottomless pit. Ganon then begs Link to let him have the Triforce of Power back so that the two of them can defeat Zelda together, but Link ignores him and says that the Triforce of Power is his forever. Once Link realizes what he has become and decides to throw away the Triforce of Power to keep his soul intact, the cage that was holding Ganon disappears and sends him tumbling down after the Triforce.
