Dark is one of the two new elements that debuted in Skylanders: Trap Team. This element is associated with the colors of indigo, dark purple, and teal, the latter also frequently given metal texturing or effects.

History

The Light and Dark were elements that were even unknown to Master Eon himself. However both were cut off from Skylands when the Core of Light was destroyed, leaving the Skylanders of the Light and Dark elements stranded in their respective realms.[1] They would later return to Skylands when the immense explosion that destroyed Cloudcracker Prison broke open the very foundation of Skylands, officially revealing the presence of the two new elements.

Dark Skylanders, such as Blackout, know of their sinister origins, but show bravery, compassion and honor nonetheless.

Abilities

Dark Skylanders use the power of the darkness and its mysteries to overpower their foes, and like their Light counterparts powers relating to celestial bodies such as black holes. In toy form, they stand on pedestals of black smoke.

In Skylanders: Trap Team's turret challenges, Dark Skylanders have the ability Black Hole, which immediately destroys most enemies on the screen. In Kaos Doom Challenge, they can summon a dark orb atop a small elaborate pillar, which itself summons smaller orbs that home in on enemies.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Dark-aligned Portal Master Powers include a life-draining shadow aura and a damaging curse. Those are distributed in several conditions, and the names are as follows:

  • Shadowy Shell
  • Shadowy Entrance
  • Cursed Strike
  • Curse of Darkness
  • Shadowy Desperation

Trivia

  • Despite their "Dark" title, the Dark Edition Skylanders and most of the Dark Edition Vehicles are not included in this element, as they are already associated with other Elements.
    • The only exception is Sea Shadow, which is the only Dark elemental entity to also have a Dark Edition counterpart.
  • This is currently the only element without any Legendary counterparts.
  • Light and Dark have the lowest number of Skylanders in the entire series, excluding the Kaos Element.
  • In SuperChargers, with the addition of Nightfall, this was the only element to have more female than male Skylanders.
    • However, in Imaginators, two male Skylanders were added, making the majority male, like in all other elements.
  • As of Imaginators, all Dark Skylanders have blank eyes with no irises or pupils. Most of them are white, with the exception of Hood Sickle.
  • This, Fire and Water are currently the only elements to gain a villain from another element.
  • Currently, only its two debuting Skylanders, Blackout and Knight Mare, have visible mouths. This makes it the element with the lowest amount of Skylanders whose mouths are visible, apart from the Kaos element.
    • Currently, it is also the only element in which Skylanders with visible mouths are the minority.
