Sorry that I took so long, but after several requests, I made the final one to complete the Zelda trinity. The Gerudo King Career. Yes, ladies and gentlemen... this is the Ganondorf career!

It has all the usual requirements: it's own GUID, custom icon, completed chance cards, EP compatibility, custom carpool, and custom reward.

Once again, this career is mainly based on Ocarina of Time, and is intended for a specific character. However, it's set for the gals, too. So whether you have a Ganondorf sim or a Nabooru sim... you're covered.

One more thing, I do NOT intend to make a teen version of this one, since Ganondorf is never seen as a teenager.

The custom carpool is once again Hexameter's Ridable horse, converted by FennShysa, as Ganondorf isn't ever seen riding anything else. If you've downloaded my Hero of Hyrule career and its carpool, you already have it. If not, get it here.

And the custom reward is the Fused Shadows! As to why I chose this particular item... well... there weren't many other choices. And there are many theories going around that the Twili in Twilight Princess are descended from the Gerudo... and there are some vague hints in the game that seem to support this theory. However there are several other theories, so I cannot advocate this one as the correct one. This object is created by TheJim07 and is a buyable item here.

Career Levels:

King/Leader of the Gerudo Thieves

M-Sa 7am-7pm §1000 (Yes, the pay starts pretty high. But after all, he does start out as a King.)

The Gerudo are a tribe of desert dwelling thieves comprised of all women... except for you. As the lone male born every one hundred years, Gerudo law declares you to be their King. But ruling over a desert wasteland is certainly not enough to satisfy your ambitions... you seek more. But if you want it, you’ll need to gain the power to take it.
(In the female version, she is refered to as "Leader" when no male is available to be King.)

Evil Sorcerer/Sorceress

M-Sa 7am-7pm §2000

You have researched and trained heavily in dark sorcery. During this research, you have found information pertaining to a power that can make all your dreams come true... the Triforce! The sacred golden triangles left behind by the goddesses that created the land of Hyrule that can grant the wishes of mortals. You have found your destiny. You will take this sacred power and conquer Hyrule... no... the WORLD! Keep exercising those magical skills. You’ll need them to make an invincible army of horrible creatures to invade Hyrule.

Insincere Emissary

M-Sa 7am-7pm §2500

Even though you now have a magically created army of terrible monsters at your command, you realize that to invade Hyrule outright would not be practical… yet. So you decided that stealth and treachery will be the best ways to go. So you approach the King of Hyrule under a flag of peace. Your goal is to gain the King’s confidence by assuring him of your “sincere” intentions of a Gerudo alliance with Hyrule… so keep working on your diplomacy skills.

Deceitful Ally

M-Sa 7am-7pm §4000

You have gained the King’s trust and he has officially declared the Gerudo as allies of Hyrule… and he has given you free rein over the castle. Now you are free to roam the corridors and search the libraries, looking for any information to where the Triforce is located and how to gain access to it. You’ll have to be careful, though. The King may be convinced, but you’ve noticed that Princess Zelda doesn’t seem to be, and she’s watching you with a critical eye. She might very well be on to you. So keep working on your charisma to try to convince her otherwise… or at least keep her unaware of your plans.


M-Sa 7am-7pm §5000

Now that you’ve learned the location of the Sacred Realm where the Triforce is located, and how to gain access to it, now the time is right to attack. You gather your magically created troops and prepare to overpower the King’s armies and take Hyrule Castle. You realize that Princess Zelda has set a plan of her own into motion, but you are prepared for that. If you work it right, her plans just might fall into line with yours.

Captor of Hyrule Castle

M, F, Sa, Su 9am-3pm §7000

After a massive battle between the King’s soldiers and your monsters, you have captured Hyrule Castle and killed the King. However, you have miscalculated Princess Zelda’s resourcefulness and she has escaped! You curse yourself for allowing this… but then you remember something. That green-clad boy she had been seeing lately ever since you first arrived seems to be a very important key to her plans. So you decide to follow him.

Raider of the Sacred Realm

M-F 9am-3pm §7500

You were right. It seems that Zelda had indeed sent the boy out to gain the keys to the Sacred Realm... all in an attempt to secure the Triforce before you can get your hands on it. You have to give her credit… it was a bold plan. Just as the boy opens the door to the Sacred Realm, you step out and shove the boy aside. You feel great anticipation as you see your dreams about to be realized.

Thief of the Triforce of Power

M-F 9am-2pm §8000

With great exhilaration, you lay your hands on the sacred Triforce, but something you had not anticipated happens. The Triforce suddenly breaks into its component parts and disappears. As you contemplate what could have possibly gone wrong, you suddenly feel an incredible rush of power. You see the mark shining through your gauntlet and realize that you have gained the Triforce of Power! Seeing that all is not lost, you claim your victory for now. In the reveling of your newfound power, you decide not to kill the boy. After all… you owe it all to him.

Invincible Conqueror/Conqueress

M-F 10am-3pm §9000

Now armed with the Triforce of Power, there is nothing that can stand against you. You send your evil monsters forth to crush any resistance that might have the foolish nerve to present itself. Not that it would matter anyway… you now have enough power to crush any army that might stand against you all by yourself.

Hyrule’s Great King/Queen of Evil

T-Th 11am-3pm §10000

Your minions have secured the surrounding lands and crushed any remaining resistance. You now officially lay claim as Hyrule’s new King and the people now genuflect to your malevolent power. Even though you have only gained a portion of the Triforce, you are satisfied with this… for now. However, you plan to eventually gain the other two Triforce pieces and gain total control of the world. You now only have two concerns… the princess is still at large, and that green-clad boy you decided to spare has been seen wandering around Hyrule, defeating your monsters one-by-one.

KNOWN ISSUES: It has come to my attention that my career seems to crash the base game. After extensive testing by uninstalling my game completely, then reinstalling the base game, then testing after installing each expansion pack, I have found that my Zelda careers with these carpools require Pets to run properly. So you will need at least Pets to use these careers.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

A fun idea! As a long time Zelda fan I read your job descriptions with interest. It looks well written ; my ONLY quibble is the salary - it is still a shade on the high side, Ganon or not.

It was a little troubling to me, too. But I figured that a king of thieves would be getting a lot of money already, and he would be getting more as he conquered. I didn't see any way around it.
