Battle of the Dark Sides is the 7th Co-Op Event Match in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Player 1 controls Link, while Player 2 controls Samus. This is the same as the solo event Dark Link Duel, only now Samus is on Link's team and Dark Samus is on Dark Link's team. Each player has 200 HP of stamina. You win by dropping both the CPU's stamina to 0 HP.
- This event alludes to Dark Link, whom is a boss/mini-boss in the Legend of Zelda, and Dark Samus, whom is the antagonist in the Metroid Prime series. However, Dark Samus appears very differently (blue, not black) in her original games.
