|Map Type||Large, Looping|
It is an extremely dark, openly-looping world that is difficult to see without using the Lamp effect to light it up. Doing so reveals the intricate floor patterns that can be used to navigate. The patterns on the floor mostly resemble designs of Aztec or other Mesoamerican masks, and the music is ominous but relaxing.
Once the map is fully lighted, the Knife effect will be much easier to find here. It is picked up off the ground between the two floor patterns that look like hands near the center of the map. A white gate to the Wilderness can be found, contrasting with the darkness. There are three Pissipissini that roam this world; they are barely visible in the darkness and barely react to the player. A ghost named Follony is also found here, but unlike the other two ghosts (Nopperabou Ghost and Fleebie), it does not give any effects, but will follow Madotsuki erratically if it sees her.
In previous versions of the game up until version 0.09, the floor patterns are gone and Fleebie is found in the area, giving the Triangle Kerchief effect. Additionally, a purple gate leads the player to the Face Carpet Plaza.
Nexus → Dark World
- The tiny Knife rests on the ground in this unlit, looping location of massive size. Some fans thus suggest that Madotsuki wanted to hide it away.
- The fact that the somber Dark World is available to be entered from the Nexus, while various mellow dream locations are harder to reach, has led to speculation regarding Madotsuki and her personality, backstory, or mental state.
- In previous versions, Fleebie could be found wandering the area and would grant the Triangle Kerchief effect upon being interacted with.
