The Temple of Darkness is the third Dungeon of Dark World in Four Swords Adventures.[1]

Themes and Navigation

After wandering through the various locations taken over by the darkness, the four Links reach the final location of Dark World. This Temple was said to house the Dark Mirror. In Kakariko Village, they were told to swear allegiance to a great king,[2] who the loitering Deku Scrubs reveal to be none other than Ganon.[3] At the end of the Temple of Darkness, the White Maiden and the four Links learn that someone has stolen the Mirror.[4]

The Boss is Phantom Ganon, who is more powerful than before. After defeating him, the Red Maiden is rescued.
