Skyward Sword Reference?
I dunno about you, but i've always noticed the two S's in the background. Maybe this is a reference to Skyward Sword before people knew its name? What do you think, should it be added to trivia, or ignored? Nicktheslayer 06:58, 10 September 2010 (EDT)
- A swirl in the background of the Spirit Tracks Dark World as an SS reference? That seems extremely silly, especially since the Zelda games do not have a trend of foreshadowing the names of future titles. I definitely think this is a case of forcing something that isn't there. ;) — ciprianotalk 17:41, 10 September 2010 (EDT)
- Okay, i just thought id ask, because before Skyward Sword was even announced, i had noticed how much they stood out, when they couldve just used a generic circular swirl, instead oddly placed "SS", in what looks like a sky. Anywho, ill be on the lookout for other easter eggs. can you check out the Water (Terrain) page for me? i told you what i changed in the discussion, its my first big change, i wanna make sure i did nothing wrong Nicktheslayer 19:13, 10 September 2010 (EDT)
Dark Realm and Malladus
Malladus was not imprisoned in the Dark Realm. The Dark Realm is the location of the Demon Train, which Cole used to free Malladus from his prison:
The Demon Train comes from the Dark Realm. But even Cole didn't know its exact location at first. He had me build a compass using the spirits' power to find the Demon Train in the Dark Realm.
I have been searching for the Demon Train. That's the train that Malladus used to escape.
Malladus's spirit is kept in the altar of the Tower of the Spirits, as said by Zelda several times:
Does this mean we stopped the Demon King's resurrection? At any rate, we should go to the altar at the top, where he's imprisoned.
The Tower of Spirits is back to normal! Now we can get to the altar where the Demon King sleeps.
...so right now this article contradicts that. Thus, the Dark Realm doesn't really have anything to do with the Spirit War, which means that section needs to be removed. If you guys don't mind, I'll go ahead and revamp the article so that it doesn't contradict the game. Dany36 00:27, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
- Actually, it is said in the beginning of the game that Malladus was imprisoned deep underground, and the altar is merely the place where he can be revived. However it's implied he was imprisoned within the Dark Realm according to my understanding. I could be wrong, but I could swear I have heard that he was imprisoned in the Dark Realm and that it is his underground prison. It even shows in the opening intro that he was sealed underground by the Tower of Spirits and the Spirit Tracks. So I question the interpretation of those quotes above. Do what you will with it, but it is my understanding that the Dark Realm was indeed Malladus's prison under Hyrule, and that the altar atop the Tower of Spirits was the only place he could be revived, not necessarily the place where he was actually imprisoned.

I think that the Dark Realm and the Twilight Realm may be one and the same, just in different time periods. Over the years, the light in the Twilight could've slowly faded away, chaninging it into the Dark Realm. Possibly due to the presence of an incredibly powerful dark being, whom I believe may be Majora (not the Majora we see within Majora's mask, but the TRUE Majora, the Demon Lord himself, who is much, much more powerful), who was imprisoned there a long time ago by the Gods. Again, this is a theory, but it seems like it could be plausible.HyruleBiologist 07:37, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
After reading the Spirit Tracks appearances section of this page, it seems to go into too much detail about the battle between the Demon Train and Malladus and not enough on the Dark Realm itself. In my opinion, the introduction and a little bit of the Spirit Tracks section is sufficient for this article. This seems to be one of the last musings of Chris that we've yet to focus.

Does anyone know the Japanese name of this location? Namely, the question is whether it is called Makai or Yami no Sekai, implying that it would possibly be the Dark World in some fashion. Cue endless "Demon Train is Ganon" theories, but yeah, just out of curiosity mostly. Fizzle 20:41, 3 October 2011 (EDT)
- It took a little digging, but the Japanese name is Yami no Sekai. I went ahead and added it to the article. - ＰａｋｋｕｎT S C 21:52, 3 October 2011 (EDT)
- Sorry, slow to reply on this, but wow, it IS the Dark World? Should it be merged? The Evil Realm isn't a seperate page, after all. Or perhaps the Dark World from ALttP deserves its own page as, like this game, its an actual physical location you visit. Plus its probably got more than enough to make up its own page. Hmm.
