Dead by Daylight Wiki

The Upside Down is one of 8 known sub-realms to the Entity's Realm in which Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png takes place.


The Upside Down is used exclusively by The Demogorgon IconHelpLoading demogorgon.png, other Killers do not have access to it.

The Upside Down is on a different plane of existence from the other realms, marked by near pitch-black darkness, with the exception of Auras IconHelp auras.png The Demogorgon may read while traversing it.

The Demogorgon can place Portals throughout the Trial Grounds using his Power Of the Abyss IconPowers ofTheAbyss.png, then choose to traverse the The Upside Down from one Portal to another.
The Portal that is being travelled to will have a red, bright glow under it.

Traversing The Upside Down is an automated action, The Demogorgon cannot move through this sub-realm on its own accord.

Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png have no means to enter The Upside Down.


Upon traversing The Upside Down, The Demogorgon is granted the Undetectable IconStatusEffects undetectable.png Status Effect for 3 seconds, the duration of which may be increased using certain Add-ons.


  • Before and after traversing The Upside Down, The Demogorgon roars.
    This roar can be heard all across the Map.
  • The time it takes to traverse The Upside Down may vary between 1.5 and 3 seconds, depending on the distance that is traversed.
    • The Demogorgon traverses The Upside Down at a speed of roughly 20 m/s without the use of Add-ons.
  • It is still possible to hear noises from your surroundings while traversing The Upside Down.
  • Dead by Daylight's The Upside Down does not quite resemble the Upside-Down from Stranger Things.
