The Dark Mirror as seen in-game
|Game(s)||Four Swords Adventures|
|Comparable Item(s)||Mirror of Twilight|
The Dark Mirror makes its first and only appearance in Four Swords Adventures. According to the White Maiden, it is said to reveal the evil that lies within a person, bringing it to life. This is true, as the Dark Mirror used to spawn the Shadow Links which plagues Hyrule and Link throughout the game.
When first mentioned by Dampé, the mirror is revealed to have sealed away a Dark Tribe a long time ago. The Mirror was then hidden away in a temple in the Forest of Light, in order to seal it away from the world.
Upon inspecting the Temple of Darkness, it comes to the Links' and the maidens' knowledge that the mirror had been stolen. They believe it to be Vaati's doing, but clues of the culprit, Deku Scrubs chanting the name Ganon, brings them to the desert, and their suspicion is confirmed by the Red Knight.
Upon arriving in The Dark Cloud of the Realm of the Heavens in the final clash against Shadow Link, Link and Princess Zelda finally manage to retrieve the mirror. This in turn leads to the end of Shadow Link's havoc in Hyrule.
- ↑ "That mirror reveals the wickedness within a person and brings it to life." — White Maiden (Four Swords Adventures)
- ↑ "Legends speak of a mirror in which a Dark Tribe was sealed away long ago. I understand it's supposed to be hidden now somewhere in the Forest of Light." — Dampé (Four Swords Adventures)
- ↑ "Long ago, a dark tribe invaded Hyrule. They were defeated and imprisoned within the mirror. The tribe's mirror prison was then secreted away and hidden in the forest temple to sever its connection to this world." — White Maiden (Four Swords Adventures)
- ↑ "We still have no clear idea of who stole the mirror. However, there is something that disturbs me. When those...things...first entered my woods, they spoke of their dark lord. "Ganon, Ganon," they chanted. It was as though they were...worshipping." — White Maiden (Four Swords Adventures)
- ↑ "Ganon... I've heard that name before. No wait... It was Ganondorf... But, no... That man was of the Gerudo tribe. I can't imagine these creatures worshipping some desert nomad. There's a Gerudo village in the desert. I doubt there is any connection, but it cannot hurt to check the village." — Red Maiden (Four Swords Adventures)
- ↑ "The man that defeated us is also the same man who created that shadowy imp. A man from the desert wastes... He is not Vaati." — Red Knight (Four Swords Adventures)
