Since Tears of the Kingdom arrived, Legend of Zelda fans have spent an incredible amount of energy relentlessly exploring the picturesque plains of Hyrule and enjoying what they have to offer.

While some players have dedicated their time to speedrunning the game or tearing its worldspace apart in order to fuse together creations that keep getting more and more impressive, others have already given the game a makeover using mods.

No matter whether you’re looking to add a bit of randomness to Tears of the Kingdom or wield some classic Zelda weapons, modding has had you covered. Now, though, there’s a mod for those who just want to tell Ganondorf what they really think of him.

Ever wanted the power to send Ganondorf a powerful message in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

The mod in question is called ‘F*ck You Ganon!’, and is the latest work of modder Lintenso. Some of their previous projects have given Link his own Gloom Hand and the chance to feel the Hylian sun on his bare bonce.

This time, they’ve decided to replace the warrior’s ‘thinking’ pose, activated by pushing the thumb stick downwards, with something a little more spicy.

“That's right, it's payback time with a twist of attitude,” declares the modder in their description. They continue: “Embrace the power of profanity and flip your way through Hyrule, one middle finger at a time. No more playing nice – it's time to give Ganon a royal salute he'll never forget!”

They’ve even made sure Link adopts a suitably stern expression, just so that his Gerudo foe knows that the gesture isn’t to be taken lightly, even if it doesn’t come from behind the controls of a terrifying mech made from a ramshackle assortment of wheels and railings.

If you also want a new emote to whip out when faced with something you do approve of, you’re in luck, as another modder, Jjiinx, has already made a compatibility patch that’ll allow you to use this new mod with another Lintenso creation.


This second mod is ‘Thumbs Up, Hero!’, which, as you might imagine, adds a cheeky thumbs up to Link’s arsenal.

Regardless of which Tears of the Kingdom characters you plan to flip off, make sure to follow us for a bunch of helpful guides that can show you how to find the secret Gerudo shop, grab a Hylian Shield or unlock Skyview Towers.
