- "This is the world between worlds. The Negative Space."
- ―Alice Hartley
Negative Space is a region in between all universes, but not a true universe in itself. The space allows access to the entire multiverse, and its destruction would cause an end to all of existence. Bear and a human companion would serve as the guardians of Negative Space, opposing the Darkness and his chaotic sister, Tegan.
In 2013, Alice Hartley and the "5th Boy" were trapped in Negative Space for a long time. Alice assisted the boy in escaping the space and defeating the Darkness, but she eventually turned against him and escaped herself, where she was discovered by her sister. The "5th Boy" managed to defeat the Darkness and escaped to his father in the Alternate World.
At Andy's return, Alice Hartley and Phoebe Hartley took his place. They were returned back to the Real World after Tegan's chaotic events, when "Bear" decided that the multiverse would exist long after him.
At one particular location, Negative Space has the appearance of a large, gloomy, warehouse full of endless rooms and corridors. Everything appears to ripple and seem blue as if it is in water. The place is emphatic, and events that occur can be influenced merely by thinking or feeling. According to Andy, the world does not follow the known laws of physics, and it is governed by magic rather than science. "Bear," a child who resided there, also explained that the Negative Space has feelings. It also seemingly requires a known human conscience present at all times, in order to balance it's restoring power. In a secret location of Negative Space, there is a room full of portals that lead to every universe in existence.
Outside of the warehouse, Negative Space is almost synonymous with Bremin. An individual known only as "the 5th Boy" once got trapped in a location not dissimilar to the Bremin Ranges National Park, needing to find a way out in order to once again meet with his father. The Darkness was in control, and attempted to get rid of the 5th Boy.
- The term "Negative Space" first appeared in the TV guide and the game, and wasn't used in the show itself, although it does get named in the film, Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows.
- At the end of Season 2, Alice gets sent there once again, along with her sister Phoebe.
- The Negative Space shown is not the entire area. As seen in Episode 25, the space we see Andy in is the same as the warehouse the other boys are in. Negative Space is an alternate, empty version of the entire Bremin and possibly the world, as revealed in the game.
- The Darkness was once active there and had taken over the space at the time The 5th Boy and Alice Hartley were trapped there.
