He could just be usin' that bloody sword of his ffs. Ganondorf is known for fightin' in three different fashions: as ye olde Ganon, using magic, or swingin' a sword. The latter two show up in literally no way within his moveset. No projectile, no levitation, no swordplay, just punches 'n kicks. Outta all the clone characters that were, Ganon is clearly the easiest one to de-clone. His moveset's got options for days.
