Delve into Ganon’s lesser known pig-man backstory

They’re making pig-men, Jerry!

Since Did You Know Gaming has covered basically every classic series ever at this point, they need to start to work into the more granular type stuff. You know, breakdowns of characters and the like.

But this actually works well with Nintendo games, as their tireless development efforts and attention to detail allow for some interesting case studies. Such is the case for Ganon, the low key pig-man enemy of Link and Zelda that has a surprisingly robust backstory, both in and out of the games themselves.

He’s also half-man half-bear half-pig, and makes a cameo appearance in Seinfeld.
