Prophet of Doom
~ Astor's banner.
I will crush you beneath my heel... That is... MY FATE!
~ Astor before sending Harbinger Ganon to attack Link and Zelda.

Astor is the central antagonist of Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity. He is a magical prophet who believes that he is destined to bring forth the return of Calamity Ganon and the fall of Hyrule.

He is voiced by Jonathan Lipow.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • He willingly allied himself with Calamity Ganon, knowing full well that his return would spell doom for Hyrule.
  • He manipulated the Yiga Clan into working for him and defeating Hyrule's combined armies.
  • In the EX Guardian of Remembrance DLC, he was not even phased when he sees his fellow cultists dead on the ground and completely disregards one of the members who implored him to stop the ritual immediately, showing that absolutely everyone is nothing more than a tool to be used and later discarded or an enemy to be destroyed.
  • He made several attempts on Princess Zelda's life, both to eliminate her as a threat, and to prevent her sealing powers from surfacing.
  • He betrays and harvests the souls of several members of the Yiga Clan so as to resurrect the Blight Ganons, before attacking Master Kohga and Sooga with a Link Hollow, as well as having it presumably kill Sooga, after Terrako’s efforts in summoning the future counterparts of Champions Mipha, Daruk, Revali, and Urbosa to aid them in keeping the Divine Beasts under Hyrule’s control along with additional help from Link and his comrades to take out the Blights. This action makes Kohga and the remaining Yiga Clan members forge an alliance with Zelda against him.
  • He lays siege to Hyrule Castle and has Calamity Ganon take control of it.
  • He attempts to kill Link, Zelda, and the rest of Hyrule's combined armies.
  • He attempts to take control of Calamity Ganon and uses him to bring Hyrule's end. In response, Ganon instead engulfs his body with malice and uses it as an avatar for his "Malice Incarnate" form.


  • Out of all the Pure Evil villains in the Zelda games to not be canon to the games, Astor is the only one to come from a video game rather than a manga adaptation.
