The Dark Agon Wastes are a twisted version of the Agon Wastes, located on Dark Aether. Its atmosphere is the least poisonous, compared to Dark Torvus and the Ing Hive. However, many Ing and Inglets still thrive there. The area is saturated with Light Crystals and Light Beacons, so traversing without the Dark Suit is not difficult. It is also the location of the Guardian of the Space Jump Boots, the Jump Guardian. The Dark Temple's guardian is Amorbis, and it rewards the Dark Suit upon defeat, offering Samus more protection.

Areas and main rooms[]

Like its Light counterpart, this sector can be divided into two areas:

Open area[]

This area, unlike the Light version, has very few enemies and very little sand.

Main rooms[]

Caverns area[]

Like its Aether version, this area is mainly caverns. Unlike it, it has a lot of Phazon in some rooms, which interested the Space Pirates, leading them to construct their hideout in this area's Light counterpart.

  • After Samus removes the planetary energy from the Dark Agon Wastes, its sky turns red (like other areas of Dark Aether after their energy is removed) and lightning begins to plague the area, though it never strikes Samus. Nearly identical lightning occurs frequently in the Agon Wastes on Aether before Samus returns this energy to the Energy Controller there.
