Dark Keese are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. They are a more powerful type of Keese that are found in many regions, including the Fire Sanctuary. Like Fire Keese, Dark Keese can dodge Link's sword attacks more often. Dark Keese often gather in colonies and are active at night. When a Dark Keese comes in contact with Link he becomes jinxed. When defeated, Dark Keese occasionally drop Evil Crystals. Like Cursed Bokoblin, they appear to be an undead variety of Keese as they have a skeletonized appearance.
