In a simple but impactful Tweet on the social media platform, Matthew Mercer lifted the lid on his latest role:

Mercer, who found fame acting in various animated productions, has voiced the likes of Jotaro Kujo, Leon Kennedy, Cole Cassidy, Tim Drake, Jack Cooper, Luke Skywalker, and Cor Leonis – among many, many other names.

Now, he’s portraying Ganondorf in Tears of the Kingdom, and fans are worried – because the antagonist himself is super sexy. Those aren’t my words, I promise – it was summarised better over at

In follow-up posts on the platform, Mercer revealed that he has been a Legend of Zelda fan since he was a child, and he even took the opportunity to share charming images of him dressed as Ganondorf that are well over a decade old.
