Murky Cave (Japanese: やみの どうくつ Dark Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team that contains 20 floors.

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

After the player's team rescues Medicham from Wish Cave and clears Stormy Sea, Gengar will visit the Team Base to ask to be escorted up Mt. Freeze. Once at the peak, Ninetales will tell Gengar to go to Murky Cave. This unlocks the dungeon, though Gengar must be escorted through it before it is possible to visit alone.

Gengar will give the player the Mobile Scarf as a reward. The morning after this dungeon is completed for the first time, Gardevoir will appear in Pokémon Square, asking to join the rescue team.

This dungeon is one of two in the original Mystery Dungeon games where food items will not spawn under normal circumstances.
