Dark Link is an antagonist and boss character in the Legend of Zelda series.

He debuted as the final boss in Zelda II: Adventure of Link (1987) and returned

in Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998) and multiple other Zelda games.

Dark Link is probably made of Dark Magic.

He is basically a test for Link since he has to beat himself and his own strengths and abilities in the fight with him.

He looks usually like an almost completely black version of Link but has glowing red eyes.
