The Upside Down is one of 6 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  , other Killers do not have access to it.

The Upside Down is on a different plane of existence to the Entity's Realm, marked by near pitch-black darkness, with the exception of Auras   The Demogorgon may read while traversing it.

The Demogorgon can place Portals throughout the Trial Grounds using his Power Of the Abyss  , then choose to traverse 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   have no means to enter the Upside Down.


Upon traversing the Upside Down, The Demogorgon is granted the Undetectable   Status Effect for 2 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 17 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 Upside Down doesn't quite resemble the Upside-Down from Stranger Things.
