Midna and Zant know each other because both are members of the Twili race who are from the Twilight Realm. Zant was supposedly next in the line for the throne but Midna was given the position instead. He was envious and is later manipulated by Ganondorf to usurp the throne. He manages to weaken Midna and turn her into an imp. Zant then turns the rest of the Twili into Shadow Beasts and eventually starts to take over Hyrule by covering it in twilight.
Midna is against Zant's actions and wants to save her people. She seeks the Fused Shadows in hopes that they could beat him and aids the hero Link in his quest to save Hyrule from him. After all of the Fused Shadows were gathered, Zant steals them from Midna and attempts to sway her to his side. She refuses which prompts him to expose her directly to the light spirit Lanayru. This severely injures Midna but she is saved when Princess Zelda transfers her soul into her. Midna and Link eventually make it into the Twilight Realm and defeat Zant.
Midnant has a small amount of popularity in the Zelda fandom. It is not super popular because of the fact that Midna and Zant are enemies and many prefer to pair Midna with Link. However, there are also many others who like to pair Link with Zelda so many pair Midna with Zant so that Midna can have a relationship without interfering with Zelink. Some fans like to speculate that there was once something between the two until Zant turned on Midna and the rest of the Twili. They also point out the fact that he showed his mouth in one scene while moving close to her.
- In the fan-made game Hyrule Total War, Zant and Midna were once engaged.
