Dark Trains are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.
Dark Trains were originally normal trains that became possessed. They attack by crashing into the Spirit Train, exploding on contact and destroying it with a single hit. Dark Trains can either be evaded or temporarily halted by through the use of the Cannon.
When two Dark Trains are on a collision course, they will both stop short of colliding and then turn around, rotating on their bases. Dark Trains destroy anything on their path, including enemies like Bullbos, Tanks, and Flaming Boulders. However, they will not explode when hitting anything besides the Spirit Train.
