Ganondorf Qualitative Moveset Analysis and Usage Tips - Some tips on how to properly utilize the king of disrespect at a casual level

All hail the king of disrespect! Ganon is definitely one of the most fun characters to use. However, to win with him, you need a solid understanding of his mechanics and moveset. Otherwise, you'll end up just getting tossed around and not accomplishing anything.

The guide is intended for low-intermediate level players looking looking to polish a weapon to disrespect their friends. Ganon especially fits this group because of his low tech skill requirement (basically none). Personally, I...

Dair only 2/10? Man you really hate Ganon spikes.
Personally, I find Ganondorf's dair an excellent tool if you're comboing lightweight, low damage enemies like Fox or even Marth. Remember, ganondorf can spike with it even up to his chest since the hitbox is huge. Also remember the shortjump-dair combo works wonders since their up in the air while you get out of lag and can bring out a upair or upsmash.
Otherwise I agree with you on a lot of your statements.

Warlock punch works as a recovery option when you're launched to the top corner of the screen. Double jump > reverse B > turn around punch (towards the stage) gives a boost of air mobility.

Grounded up B has more range than standing grab so it can be used when you're a bit too short.

Down B can be edge canceled.

If you ledge hop bair or up air you can side b back to the ledge and instantly snap.

Grounded warlock punch can be used to punish bowser's dair and down B.

Full hop dair can hit tall characters like Bowser, Rosalina, DK, Zelda, Ganon, Samus, Zss, Marth, Ike, D3, Rob, CF and Shulk. But it has to be a cross-up. (Maybe bayo but I don't have her)

Full hop fair landing lag can be canceled with a special move. Side B and down B being the most recommended.

Umm dair can kill at near 0 from a spike, allows footstool combos, and can spike from a ledge trump on some characters. It is also very easy to get off of a tech chase from flame choke. It combos into grab, tilts, aerials, and smashes on the ground, and is an awesome jab lock setup. It is an amazing move with tons of reward. How is it so low?

Not to mention it can also be auto cancelled on platforms using double jump and on minor slopes with short hop.
