Zant (pronounced /ˈzænt/ zant), the Usurper King, is one of two main antagonists in Twilight Princess. He is the self-proclaimed King of Twilight, although Midna claims he is the King of Shadows. He is a member of the Twili who usurps the throne of the Twilight Realm from Midna before the events of Twilight Princess. He regularly appears wearing a helmet that conceals his face, but removes it before his battle with Link. He is a powerful sorcerer and minion of Ganondorf.
