Temple of Light (光の神殿, Temple of Light) is a sub-world found in The Light Realm within Adventure Mode in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is located on the northwest corner of the map and can be entered once each of the three of the colored buttons is pressed (green in the Kongo Jungle area, pink in the Heart Pool Mountain, and blue in the Cliffside Rapids). Clearing this area will remove the light breach, allowing access to the east half of the Light Realm, which includes the Forest Hill and thus Rathalos. The area is based on the depiction of Skyworld in Kid Icarus: Uprising, though it shares the name of the Temple of Light from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The area's background music is Destroyed Skyworld.


The spirits found here are generally associated with the mythology of their own series or are otherwise found in sky-themed areas. Spirits are ordered by when they are encountered in the sub-world.
