Game: The Legend of Zelda
What Makes Him Bad: The Dark Lord wishes to conquer the entire world. How original.
What Makes Him Cool: Whether he's Ganon or Ganondorf, he's ruthless and peerless.
Ganondorf has always been around to ruin gamers' plans and to keep Link and Zelda apart, but look at him. He practically oozes awesome. Living in the desert certainly hasn't dulled his sense of style, and he's not afraid to look fly while wrecking your business.
