Known spells

Spell of Eternal Darkness

The Spell of Eternal Darkness was used by Zarok to raise an army of the dead to take over Gallowmere.[1]


MediEvil / MediEvil: Resurrection

Some time after Dan's death, Zarok came into possession of this book of Black Magic. Using the spells within it, he plunged the land into eternal night, brought life to the dead and inanimate and robbed the people of Gallows Town of their souls.

In MediEvil, Daniel can find the spell book lying on a lectern in The Entrance Hall level. He can only inspect its content page, however.

MediEvil 2

The spell book turns up again in 1878, when Lord Palethorn and Professor Hamilton Kift locate some of its pages within an old tomb. Palethorn uses it in 1886 to bring the dead back to life, but because he's missing some of the pages, he doesn't possess full control over the undead.[2] Daniel is awakened by the spell and manages to defeat Palethorn.

In one of the endings, Daniel and Kiya travel to an alternate timeline where Palethorn used the spell book to travel back in time and rewrite history.[3]
