Dark Link (The Adventure of Link)
Dark Link, also known as Link's Shadow, first appeared in The Adventure of Link as the final Boss who guards the Triforce of Courage inside the Great Palace. He serves as the final test created by the King of Hyrule before Link can obtain the Triforce of Courage. He is considered the hardest boss in the game. Before the battle begins, the lights in the room go out, Link's shadow jumps away from him, and the duel against himself starts. His primary weakness when it comes to mimicking all of Link's moves is jumping. This flaw can help defeat Dark Link. To defeat Dark Link, Link can run all the way to the left of the screen, crouch, and just keep stabbing toward Dark Link. Link eventually defeats him without taking much damage this way. After Dark Link is defeated, Link obtains the Triforce of Courage and then proceeds to awaken Princess Zelda.
