The Demon Shaft is a dungeon in Dark Cloud that is unlocked after defeating The Dark Genie. It consists of 100 floors with the boss on the 100th, and due to its nature as a bonus dungeon, it has no story and does not belong to a town. The item needed to enter the back floors is the Crystal Eye. This is also the largest dungeon in the series with 100 floors, with the Zelmite Mine's 38 floors coming in second. Floors 1-20 (Fire Zone) is the only part of the Demon Shaft not to have Mimics or King Mimics.

Although this dungeon does not exist in the original Japanese version of the game, a popular theory for its existence and continuity in the Dark Cloud timeline is that it is an incredibly old tower or palace originally built by the Ancients mentioned in Dark Cloud 2.

  • The monsters in the Demon Shaft come from various other parts of the game, and there are only a few monsters unique to it.
  • The monsters in the Shaft change every 20 floors, except for Gemron, who every 20 floors changes its elemental weakness.
  • The elemental weaknesses of each monster change every 20 floors as well. Monsters previously fought in other parts of the game have different weaknesses here as well.
  • The Demon Shaft is not present in the Japanese version of Dark Cloud. This was allegedly put in the game to make up for the inability to enter the back-floor of the Gallery of Time.
