The article covers the alternate realm featured in Four Swords Adventures. For the Level in the same game, see The Dark World.
The Dark World is a location in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. It is a parallel dimension in Hyrule that Link first encounters when his quest takes him to the Village of the Blue Maiden. Things and people in the Dark World appear only as shadows in the Light World, but their actions sometimes directly or indirectly affect things in the Light World. Typically, the Dark World can only be entered by means of a Moon Pearl and a Moon Gate, although there are exceptions where Link can, or must, enter by other means, such as falling through a certain pit or being pulled in by a Floormaster. Shadow Link has the unique ability to freely travel between the Light and Dark Worlds as he pleases.
