Welcome to the Temple of Courage, where various characters from the Legend of Zelda series battle out on a semi-weekly basis! You, the people, are the deciding factors in these matches. Functionally, all of these battles are popularity contests and not "battles" as such. For instance, in a boss vs. boss fight, we suggest that you vote for the one you like the most rather than whether or not one enemy would beat another in a legit fight. This is only a suggestion, though.
If you have an account and have at least 50 mainspace edits, you can suggest a fight or vote or comment on others on the suggestions sub-article.
You may vote for your favorite or who you think would win in a competition between the two combatants that week.
You may vote only once.
If you are a user, please include your vote in the user section. If you are not a user, please include your vote in the anonymous section. However, any votes in the anonymous sections will count as only a half vote.
When a new fight is created (the process should take no longer than a week, give or take a couple of days), the votes from the last fight will be counted and the winner decided.
Please sign your vote (unless you want to be counted as an anonymous vote) with a link to your username after your voting text.
Don't try to rig the votes by entering multiple votes; these pages are regularly patrolled and you WILL face consequences if you are caught.
Don't use talk templates.
Refrain from using inappropriate language.
If your vote is placed below the warning line, it will be removed and you will be alerted of it.
LLLLLLLLLLAAAAADDIIEEEESSSS AAANND GGEEEEENNTLLEMMEENNNNNN!!! Welcome to the 175th battle in the one and only TEMPLE. OF. CCOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUURRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGE! This week, with the triumphant return of the Temple of Courage, in a very special dodransbicentennial match, we have two somewhat disturbing (and slightly effeminate) antagonists bent on reviving their respective demonic rulers! Let's take a closer look!
In the yellow corner we have the demon lord of the Surface! He kidnaps Zelda from the Sky with a black tornado, setting Link's quest to the Surface in motion! He clashes with Link on several occasions, his frustration growing each time! Do you know how that makes him feel? Furious! Outraged! Sick with anger! THIS. IS. GHIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAHIIIIIMMM!
In the purple corner we have the Lorulean adviser to Princess Hilda! He comes to Hyrule searching for the Seven Sages and turns them one by one into paintings with his paintbrush-like staff! He may wear makeup, but don't be deceived! This sly sorcerer has plenty of tricks up his incredibly flamboyant sleeves! THIS. IS. YYYYYUUUUUUUUUUGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Without any further ado, LLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEET'S GET RRRRRREEEEEEEAAAAADYYYYYYY TOOO RRRRRRRRRRRRUUMMMMMMMMMBBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEE!!!
Votes for Ghirahim
Ghirahim was just a better villain, in my opinion. He was creepy as opposed to ridiculous. —CeilingMaster 15:40, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Yuga didn't really seem that original, whereas Hyrule Historia shows that a lot of work went into Ghirahim's character. Not to mention Yuga-Ganon is possibly the most hideous thing the world has ever seen. HH 17:23, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Ghirahim was just so much cooler. The dude was a maniac who visibly put Link on edge. Yuga might have been the actual final boss but he was still a pretty two dimensional character (see what I did there) who ran around doing nothing. Ghirahim might have been working for someone else but the dude was totally comfortable with that aspect of himself and made no effort to hide it. OniDark Link 20:07, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Yuga had no backstory, no personality, and was not even remotely intimidating. Ghirahim could at least be entertaining and somewhat menacing. ~~SirReal
I kinda like Yuga (at least he's not Vaati, right?), but he is in no way, shape or form as FABULOUS as the Demon Lord himself. Like a proper recurring boss should, he tests how well you've mastered the game's combat system, and will hand you your sauteed hindquarters if you wave that sword around like Michael J. Fox trying to sign an autograph. So, pretty much the closest Zelda's ever gotten to a Metal Gear Solid boss. Also, you've gotta be pretty badass to dance like he does in public, and live to tell the tale. Take notes, Final Fantasy... this is how you do a villain with effeminate traits nobody asked for right. --AuronKaizer! 17:52, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
Yuga as a character failed to engage me in any meaningful way. His boss fights are an interesting twist on the corresponding Aghanim/Ganon fights, but more entertaining fights exist. Ghirahim has so many things going for him in both his characterization and his boss battles -- not the least of which is that he's the only recurring boss in the series I look forward to battling again. Not that all the others are bad -- they just normally aren't worth a second (or third) bout. Jedimasterlink (talk) 10:14, June 25, 2015 (UTC)
Votes for Yuga
Ghirahim was just Demise's pawn. Yuga was working with Hilda, but decided to then turn on her Unoriginal, but Ghirahim was more unoriginal. Ghirahim was a good villain, but I just like Yuga better -CitrusJelly (Talk)
Truthfully, I have not yet beaten Skyward Sword and not even started A Link Between Worlds. However, Skyward Sword always rubbed me up the wrong way and I could never get into the hype surrounding Ghirahim's character. He tries too hard to be like Zant, and to be honest, Zant had the cooler helmet. -Starstalk 16:41, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know what it's like for everyone else but my browser no longer has an edit section button and it really sucks, especially for something like this. OniDark Link 20:07, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Mine still does. Also, your vote somehow removed mine and HH's... —CeilingMaster 21:15, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
