The 1984 Embassy World Darts Championship were held from 31 December 1983 to 7 January 1984 at Jollees Cabaret Club in Stoke-on-Trent. Eric Bristow made up for his 6–5 defeat against Keith Deller in the 1983 final by defeating the number three seed Dave Whitcombe in the final by a crushing 7–1. Bristow never even lost a set throughout the championship apart from the one Whitcombe got in the final. Keith Deller, the reigning world champion and number 6 seed, suffered a shock first round defeat to Nicky Virachkul, 1978 World semi-finalist.
