Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has a ton of unlockable playable characters, and Calamity Ganon himself is one of the game's secret characters. You won't unlock Calamity Ganon just by playing the story like most players. It's locked behind an additional challenge that you can only complete after completing the main campaign. If you have not completed the game, there is MAJOR SPOILERS for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity below. Here's how to unlock Calamity Ganon in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
How to Unlock Ganon in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
To unlock Calamity Ganon, you must first complete the main story mode. After that, you need to unlock Terrako as a playable character by completing the mission called “The Return of Terrako”. Then, after reaching level 74, a new challenge called “Versus Calamity Ganon” will appear in the southwest region of the map. Completing this mission will unlock Calamity Ganon as a playable character.
This challenge is a boss fight challenge that pits you against three of the toughest enemies in the game. You must defeat Astor, Harbinger Ganon, and finally Calamity Ganon, all within 12 minutes. Healing items also don't spawn in this mission, which makes the whole thing much harder. If you manage to succeed, you will unlock Calamity Ganon, Hatred and Malice Incarnate, as a playable character.
Calamity Ganon has a very unique moveset compared to the rest of the roster. His attacks produce Malice, which can then be spent to enter as a Calamity. He's a very powerful character, which is fitting given the tough criteria required to unlock him.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is now available on Nintendo Switch.
