Er, no, it's not working for me either (I'm using the Gamecube version, so I don't think it matters in terms of what version it is). When I extinguish my lantern, I can't even see the mirror, much less my reflection. Is there a trick here I'm not getting, like a certain distance or angle or something?

Hmmm...maybe it's like with Ocarina of Time? You know...only some versions of that game (with different builds and subtle changes) include the bug where one can save and start a new game after Link loses the Master Sword in the battle with Ganon, allowing him to use items while on horseback and suches?

And for the record, I have the GameCube version and I tried it. Nothing really happened. So that would be my suggestion. Perhaps it only works on select releases of the game?

should it really be there. its just link in a dark room. theres abosolutly no reason it has to be dark link. Oni Dark Link

There's definately a reflection in the mirror, but it doesn't look like Dark Link. You just barely see Link's silouhette, and the only clear thing are his eyes, which you can just see the whites and the pupils of. I have a Wii, so it's not a console thing, it's probably that some of the newer versions might have it removed. User: Iriadinh, Hero of Air

I'm not sure if it's because my eyes aren't that great (even with my glasses on), but the only thing I can see in the mirror is Link's eyes, and they are most definitely NOT red. His silouhette is nowhere to be seen. Diachronos (talk) 20:09, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, that's entirely a matter of what timeline theory you believe. If you believe a theory in which Dark Link only appears in games from one timeline, he only appears in that timeline. If you believe a theory in which he appears in games split up between both timelines, he appears in both.

this is probably a hotly debated thought, but I haven't found it before so I wouldn't know. well where did this being (if he is in fact an actual living being) come from in the first place? I theorize that it may actually be an enchantment or spell of some sort. It could have been a trap created by one of the seven sages in ocarina of time, in order to guard the invaluable longshot. This could be evidenced in Oracle of ages when Veran summons a few Dark Link replicas to aid her.

Nobody really knows. Some say that, like you said, he is an enchantment or spell. Some say that, because the Master Sword repels evil, when Link drew the Master Sword, it caused his "dark" half to split from him, creating Dark Link. There are a whole bunch of other theories, but from what I've seen, those appear to be the strongest.

The end."
Hmm, I noticed me some weird information here. It appears that the Four Swords appearance contains the same information as the A Link to the Past appearance section. Also, the image used in the section reminds me quite a lot more of ALttP than Four Swords, graphically. Do the Dark Links and the Palace of the Four Sword appear in both games? Or is there some kind of confusion here? Haven't played FS meself.

Additionally, I'm a bit unsure on whether or not to use an enemy box, as we do now, or change to a character box. A character box usually helps fill out more detail, and he is not an enemy in all appearances.

the only game he isnt an enemy is in twilight princess and he doesnt really have any known character histroy or personalty (unless we base it wholy on shadow link). as for the four swords the dark links in that arent real dark links just darker coloured tunics of links (as far as i know). four swords adventure however he plays an important role in the story and doesnt eem anything like the link to the past one.

A Link to the Past and Four Swords

Ak brought this forward a while back but it was never resolved. The way the article is now suggests four Dark Link's appear in both the A Link to the Past and Four Swords section of the gameboy advance game. I havn't played four swords either but I can only find videos of the fight in A Link to the Past and dont believe he does appear in Four Swords but its againest my policy to remove things from a game I havn't played. And on that note those Dark Link's appear to be the final boss of the optional dungeon so they should have their own page. Can some one who has played Four Swords clear all this up? Oni Dark Link 17:54, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Removing Theory

I think the origin theory in the theory section should be removed. It requires the the Master Sword separate a person's inner evil from them, something that it's never been implied to do. Also, the OoT Dark Link's origins are implied to be related to that creepy room in the Water Temple by the various things that happen there. If Dark Link were "separated" from Link when he puled the Master Sword, one would not expect him to later have health directly proportional to Link's at the time he encounters him in the Temple. One wouldn't even expect him to be an adult necessarily. The theory pretty much refutes itself with Rauru's implication that you can't touch the sword in the first place if you have any significant evil in you.

Bottom line, the supporting evidence (Master Sword can separate someone's inner evil) is made up and week, and there's plenty of refuting evidence. I occasionally leave extremely unlikely theories up if they are well known and their flaws need to be pointed out, but this one I've only heard this once.

I suddenly got the image of Link brutally beating up a dark version of himself as a child with six hearts. Yeah I vote removal Oni Dark Link 23:43, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

The article always refers to Dark Link as "it" instead of he. Is that correct? I mean, it's a dark form of Link, Link is male, shouldn't Dark Link be male as well thereby referring to him as "he" instead of "it"?

I see no reason why this should be the case. Dark Link is not a clone of Link, and while I more often use male pronouns to describe Dark Link, it is, at the end of the day, a shade of a man, and not a man itself. Furthermore, we don't really know what Dark Link is, exactly. For all we know, it is merely an enchanted construct made to fight Link, in which case it can't really have a gender. Bottom line is that there's no solid evidence suggesting that Dark Link is actually male and not just made in the shape of a male individual. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 04:06, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Shadow Link is referred to as a he in Four Swords Adventures, whether or not that has any effect on what he should be called here depends entirely on how much you view Shadow Link as Dark Link Oni Dark Link 12:14, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Considering we have a separate article for Shadow Link, he should, at least in the wiki-wide sense, be considered a completely different entity. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 19:34, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
