The Dark Elves are one of the two species of elves from Alfheim, thought from Svartalheim until Mimir revealed they were not from Svartalheim at all. They are also the antagonists of God of War (2018) and God of War: Ragnarok.

t's unknown which race of Elves came first, and its such lack of knowledge what sparked the conflict between the Dark Elves and their luminous counterparts for the dominion of the Light of Alfheim.

Because of their nature, the Dark Elves seek to conceal The Light and plunge their whole realm into darkness.

Despite the eternal conflict in their home realm, the Dark Elves seem to have had some notable presence in Midgard. One of the lands in the dominion of the Dwarf King Mótsognir, Veithurgard, was under constant attack of the Dark Elves, who eventually created an outpost near the land.

The tide of their war against the Light Elves was turned against them when the Vanir leader Freyr became the Lord of the Light Elves, giving them the control of The Light for the longest they ever had. Freyr mysteriously disappeared, however, and without his aid, the Light Elves were on the losing side of the war for The Light. Led by Svartáljǫfurr, the Dark Elves took over Freyr's Temple, encasing it with a sentient plant of sorts and then proceeded to slaughter all the remaining Light Elves.

When Kratos and Atreus arrived at Alfheim, the Dark Elves welcomed them with hostility, attacking the father and son with wave after wave of soldiers. They defeated them, however, with the Light of Alfheim being returned to the Light Elves and their King killed in battle but telling them that they've made a grave mistake which questioned Atreus of helping the wrong side. When Atreus asked Kratos is the war for Alfheim is over, the Spartan replied to his son that there are surviving Dark Elves proceeded to hide, waiting for a better chance to counterattack which Mimir agreed to Kratos' thoughts.
