A strange, parallel world to Hyrule, the Dark World is home to many shady creatures and beings. It is rumored that this place used to be part of the Sacred Realm.


The Dark World once turned its visitors into a form reflected by their nature if they lacked the Moon Pearl. The influence of the Multiverse has somehow changed this effect, and most visitors will still retain their original form during their stay.

Was once the Golden, or Sacred Realm, a realm created by the Goddesses. Once Ganondorf was imprisoned here by the Sages at the end of the Banishing Wars, his evil influence tainted the world until the very trees will attack people. The land is shared by peaceful and dangerous monsters, much like any other place.

Multiverse Timeline[]

The Dark World has been left to its own devices. Many vanquished evils from Hyrule have found their way here. An unknown evil has taken possession over the Pyramid of Power and plans to rule the realm. There are agents against this rule: the Oracles of the Dark World.

Ganondorf traveled here soon after arriving in the Multiverse. He killed the Sage of Light, Rauru, and gained the allegiance of the Oracles.
