Event Domains are domains that are available during a time-limited event. Some event domains are accessible in the overworld, identifiable by its unique doorway entrance. Other event domains are accessible via the event menu. All "Test Run" domains are event domains. 10 Domains match the category selection:
Some domains can be completed in Co-Op Mode. This involves pressing the "Match" button in the Domain entrance screen to invite other players to one's world or join other players' worlds. After that, the host can invite other players in their world to join a Co-Op session to complete the domain or boss fight.
If a player falls in battle within the domain, they can enter spectator mode and will be able to rotate the camera view to see the other players battle in the domain.
- Domains probably got their inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a 2017 open-world adventure role-playing game released by Nintendo for their Switch console. In that game, players could enter "Shrines" to complete puzzles and fight monsters in exchange for spirit orbs. Trounce Domains are most similar to Breath of the Wild's "Dungeons" or "Divine Beasts", where puzzles must be solved in order to fight off a spirit of Calamity Ganon.
- The challenge domains contain a petrified tree at the exit after clearing them. According to Albedo, these trees are considered to be young, with ancient trees being one or two miles in height with a unknown spider species living in its roots. These have yet to appear in-game.
