Dark Force

See Main Article: Dark Force (Phantasy Star)

PstarIV darkforce2

Dark Force (first appearance)

Dark Force is the "god" worshipped by Zio, and at whose command he wreaks havoc across Motavia. The recurring enemy of the [[Phantasy Star series]], Dark Force is a physical manifestation of the hate-filled spirit of the Profound Darkness. The weakening of the seal caused by Palma's destruction enabled four separate incarnations of Dark Force to appear.

Profound Darkness

The Profound Darkness is the final boss of Phantasy Star IV and the main antagonist of the original series.

In ancient times a spirit life form, consumed from within by conflicting desires, split into two separate entities. For reasons unknown, these two beings fought one another until one emerged victorious. The winner, which became known as the "Great Light", banished the loser in an alternate dimension, sealed by the existence of the Algol Solar System. Over the course of thousands of years, the vanquished being became consumed by anger, and eventually embodied hatred itself. Thus did it become the Profound Darkness, and send into Algol a portion of its hate-filled spirit every 1,000 years in an attempt to destroy what the Great Light had created and to ultimately free itself from bondage.
