Gerudo Desert is a stage in Hyrule Warriors. It contains "Ganondorf's Return" and "Enduring Resolve," the fourteenth and seventeenth Scenarios in Legend Mode, respectively.

It greatly resembles the Gerudo Desert from Twilight Princess, as it includes portions of the Arbiter's Grounds and surrounding Bulblin's Camp.

Scenarios

Ganondorf's Return

After Link and the Hyrulean Forces defeated Cia and her army at the Valley of Seers, peace was believed to return to Hyrule. However as a result of the Master Sword's removal from its pedestal earlier, Ganondorf's final spirit fragment was released and his body became whole again.[1] Upon his return, Ganondorf's first objective was to return to the Gerudo Desert, the center of his power. As he arrived, he summoned the spirits of Zant and Ghirahim from their imprisonment to serve him in his conquest.[2] With a whole army behind him, Ganondorf marched into the Desert to claim its stronghold as his own, which is controlled by the Monster Forces.

As Ganondorf and his Force enter the Desert, Zant makes the suggestion they demostrate their army's might. Ganondorf agrees to this idea, and resolves to conquer the village Keeps to the west. As Ganondorf and his troops fight their way, they also encounter Darknuts and Stalchildren imprisoned in cells, known collectively as the Imprisoned Forces. Upon freeing them, the monsters willingly side with Ganondorf and fight alongside him. However as Ganondorf's Forces advance to the settlement, its front gates are closed as the Monster Forces' leading Lizalfos schemes a counterattack. The oasis Keeps within the Desert center are opened as monster troops pour out to fight back. Ganondorf's Forces however are unmoved by this display, and Zant suggests they claim these Keeps to draw out the settlement.

As planned, by conquering the central Keeps, the Lizalfos commands the settlement gates be opened as more troops arrive to avenge their fallen allies. Using this opportunity, Ganondorf and his Forces immediately advance to ravage the settlement. In response to this, the Monster Forces proceed to open the Keep gates in the northeast. Zant and Ghirahim seek to claim these Keeps, however the Lizalfos and Aeralfos of the area grow wary to their presence. In their deseperation to protect their territory, the Monster Forces summon King Dodongo onto the battle field. Zant and Ghirahim however are not concerned by it, and insist that they must dispatch the main group first. Whether King Dodongo is defeated first or not, Ganondorf eventually reaches the Arbiter's Keep in the north where he is trapped as the gate closes behind him. The commanding Aeralfos immediately sends its monsters onto him, but Ganondorf resists as he fights back, eventually defeating the Aeralfos and reopening the gate.

Refusing to accept defeat, the Monster Forces then summon the commanders Gohma and Manhandla as a last resort. Impervious to their appearance, Ganondorf instead sees a victorious opportunity in eliminating them. He hurries back to the central Desert where he combats the Giant Bosses one-by-one, eventually defeating them both. With both commanders defeated, the Monster Forces fall as Ganondorf and his army seize command of the desert stronghold. They then resolve to take the Triforce pieces.

Enduring Resolve

After losing the Battle at Hyrule Field and the Triforce is lost to Ganondorf, the Hyrulean Forces plan a counterattack by attacking Ganondorf's stronghold in the Gerudo Desert. With Ganondorf vanished from sight, Zelda hopes that if the remaining Hyrulean Forces could defeat his generals Ghirahim and Zant, there may be a chance at finding him.

As the Hyrulean Forces march into the Desert, they are immediately faced with Ghirahim's and Zant's troops. Although their strength is overwhelming, the allies promise they are not about to flee. Zelda (or Proxi speaking on behalf of Link if playing as Zelda or Sheik) orders that they must first locate and take down Ghirahim in the Southern Desert. Lana (or Link if playing as Lana) however warns everyone that they must be careful as the Desert Heat is overwhelming, and will take a toll on their stamina. Lana quickly starts to succumb to the heat as she begins to feel dizzy, decreasing her health. Ghirahim uses this opportunity to surround his enemies with his troops, and a Big Poe advances towards Lana. The Hyrulean Forces can save her by capturing the North Oasis Keep, providing her a safe, cool area. As Link fights Ghirahim, he suddenly abandons the fight and flees. The Hyrulean Forces are skeptic by his unusual actions, and wonder if it is wise to follow him. Link pursues him as Ghirahim makes his way to the Arbiter's Keep. Link soon defeats him, but Lana expresses that his defeat seemed too easy. At that point, Zant appears in the Southern Desert. With the Hyrulean Forces now scattered as a result of Ghirahim luring them away, he orders that the gates in the northeastern section of the Desert be shut. Should Link be in the northeast, he finds himself trapped. Lana panics as she realizes she is separated from the others and has fallen into the enemy's trap. Her Morale lowers as a result.

Zelda stresses that they must reunite with Lana immediately. Proxi realizes that the doors in the Clifftop Keep are partially closed. She tells Link to defeat the enemies there to open them. In the mean time, Lana desperately tries to move for the Allied Base, but quickly finds herself surrounded by enemies. She however refuses to give up, and her Morale improves. Link eventually defeats the Shield Moblin in the Keep, thus opening its doors. He hurries to Lana's aid, however he is still unable to get to her as the Hyrulean Forces have hastily closed the settlement gates to prevent Zant's entry. Zant has also closed the Central Desert gate to prevent Link from rejoining his allies. He says he shall only reopen them if he is defeated. However as Link fights him, Zant teleports to another part of the Desert. Zelda fears he must be stalling, and presses Link to defeat him immediately. Link defeats him, and the Central Desert gate is opened. Despite Link's victory, Zelda feels that something is wrong as the enemy troops refuse to relent, even with Zant and Ghirahim defeated. She stresses that everyone must reunite immediately.

Link hurries back to Lana's side, where she and the Hyrulean Forces are fighting off hordes of enemies. Finding themselves overpowered, Lana uses her book to summon their allies Darunia, Ruto, Fi, Midna and Agitha back from their ages. (Although only Darunia, Midna and Fi participate in the battle.) With their new help, the Hyrulean Forces gain the upper hand. However Ganondorf's Forces receive more reinforcements as the gates to the northeast and southeast reopen. From all around the Desert, enemies advance towards the Allied Base. Midna and Darunia leave to fend them off. Zelda observes that even without Ghirahim and Zant, the enemy appears to be surprisingly well organized and has even increased. Lana believes there must be someone else commanding them. She also points out that Zant and Ghirahim were acting very unusual. Zelda begins to wonder if the Zant and Ghirahim they fought were only imposters, and that the real ones must be somewhere else.

Zelda stays behind to guard the Base and orders everyone else to search for them, and Link searches through the Desert Keeps. Zant and Ghirahim realize they have been found out, and send an all-out attack on the Allied Base. Link eventually finds them at the Sacred Grounds Keep, and faces them both in battle. Despite being outnumbered, Link defeats them and the Hyrulean Forces win the battle.
