Crafting the Greatest Final Boss

Not all stories have characters. Those that do do not always have an antagonist. However, a villain is often found in certain genres, and particularly in epics. This is where we enter the realm of Zelda—a high fantasy that, since its birth, has centered squarely upon a single narrative: the emergence of evil and the subsequent rise of a hero to quell it. We've seen it in many shapes and forms, but some things remain constant—there is only ever one great villain, and there is only ever one hero. (Nintendo DS, The Legend of Zelda, Wii U)
