In Adventure Mode: World of Light, several spirits have overworld effects that allow for the traversal of certain obstacles on The Light Realm map.


Once obtained (either through Spirit Battles or other methods), these spirits have an ability that will affect certain areas in The Light Realm. As The Light Realm map is complex and has many paths to choose from, certain spirits in different locations share the same effect. Other effects are exclusive to a single spirit.

  • Only three of these spirits are specifically required to beat World of Light: Lapras is needed to access the Rathalos boss fight, a spirit with the Base Entrance effect is needed to access the Galleom boss fight, and a spirit with either the rain conjuring effect or Great Fox repair effect is needed to reach Galeem.
  • As he has two spirits, Kapp'n is technically the only character to have two exclusive effects.
    • If different incarnations of Link are counted as the same character, then he and Kapp'n are the only characters with more than one overworld effect.
  • Spirits that are in the Gym, Dojo, or are Exploring are still able to use their overworld effect, despite those activities normally preventing spirits from being used in battle.
  • Great Fox repair is the only overworld effect with interchangeable spirits to only use spirits from a single universe, being the Star Fox universe.
