Dark Link (ダークリンク Dāku Rinku?) is the final boss in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Link is forced to fight him after he defeats the Thunderbird in order to win the Triforce of Courage. Dark Link copies all of Link's abilities, as he is Link's own shadow. He is defeated by Link, who, after the ordeal, receives the Triforce from the Triforce Keeper and revives the original Princess Zelda. Dark Link is never described as one of Ganon's servants; it is more likely that he was a final test left for Link made by the King of Hyrule who hid the Triforce of Courage, possibly evidenced by the Triforce Keeper's actions.
