Concept art of Dark Lord.

Dark Lord (シャドウナイト, Shadounaito?, lit. Shadow Knight) is one of the two main antagonists in Final Fantasy Adventure. He is the ruler of the Glaive Empire who seeks to gain eternal power from touching the Tree of Mana.

Appearance and Personality

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Dark Lord resides in Glaive Castle on Mt. Illusia. He captures and enslaves numerous people from the world below, including Sumo, forcing them to serve as gladiators, fighting monsters for his entertainment.

Dark Lord enlists the aid of his adviser, Julius, whom he raised from an orphaned infant. Julius tells him that the tree lies in a shrine atop Mt. Illusia's waterfall and that a mysterious girl can help him reach the shrine. Dark Lord has Julius capture the girl from Sumo while his pet bird, Garuda, recovers her pendant.

Dark Lord is ultimately defeated in battle by Sumo. However, he is revealed to have a fake pendant in his possession while Julius has the real one and proceeds to use it for his own quest to get the power of Mana. It is likely that Julius betrayed Dark Lord by switching the pendants to fulfill his own plans, but the precise details are never revealed.

Spoilers end here.


Dark Lord moves around very fast, attacks the player has fast, and hits hard as well. He has a good defense from the front.




  • Before the battle with Dark Lord in the Japanese version, Sumo once again vows to avenge Willy. In the North American translation, Willy is never mentioned again after Sumo's escape, despite the fact that they were friends.
