Dark Keese are a skeletal, undead form of the regular Keese. Like other undead monsters, they possess the ability to Curse Link when they come in contact with him, rendering him unable to use his items, including his Sword and Shield. They are mainly found within the Eldin Province, including the Fire Sanctuary, Eldin Volcano, and the Volcano Summit, but can also be found in the Sky Keep. They will drop Evil Crystals when defeated every so often.
Dark Keese appear to reprise the role of Bubbles in Skyward Sword, which are absent from the game. Like Bubbles, Dark Keese share their skeletal appearance and curse.
