The major members of the Dark Matter species.
Dark Matter are a hostile, extraterrestrial species that are the true main antagonists in Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of Darkness, where the species made it's debut. The species' homeworld, Planet Dark Star, was destroyed by a asteroid 20 years ago prior to the beginning of the series and their homeworld's destruction is what eventually set off the Dark Matter Cataclysm.
Due to that Drawcia and Kyle, the main antagonists of Kirby: Behind the Scenes and Kirby: Behind the Scenes 2: Drawcia's Return and Revenge respectively, were just disgruntled people due to their parents being murdered because of Kyle being possessed by a Nidoo, the Dark Matter species are the first true antagonists in the Kirby: Behind the Scenes series as they are responsible for a majority of the events that has happened in the series.
Much like in the games, Dark Matter is led by 0.
Despite all of Dark Matter are the same species, members of the species look very different than the other in terms of their physical appearance. Some such as 0 are floating balls while some are more complex looking such as the Dark Matter Knight. They can also come in other shapes as well, such as Dark Nebula, who is shaped like a star. Dark Matter do also have blood, which is purple for most members except 0, who has red blood.
All members of Dark Matter are capable of generation energy and using it to attack their enemies and they are also capable of withstanding being in outer space, much like in the games. Dark Matter are capable of communicating telepathically with each other, even with Dark Matter that are unable to speak such as Mariel, Nidoo, Minion Matter, N-Z and Miracle Matter are capable of communicating telepathically with other Dark Matter. Due to the distance Planet Dark Star was away from Stella, the sun of the Stella System, Dark Matter have long lifespans.
They also all share the ability of possessing other beings, controlling the possessed person against their will and though they can tolerate being out during the day, Dark Matter prefer to be more active during the night as Planet Dark Star was almost in a constant night when it was still around.
Dealing with Dark Matter possessionEdit
Fighting against someone possessed by Dark Matter can be very difficult as attacks will hurt the possessed person instead of the Dark Matter inside him/her. This means that the possessed person is used as a meat shield by the Dark Matter that possessed the person's body and the person can possibly be killed by others trying to help the possessed person.
The possessed person is also forced to fight against their will as well and another sign of possession is that the possessed person's pupils become darker in color. However, knocking the possessed person out will end the possession.
All Dark Matter are vulnerable to Pure Crystals as it makes them back off and leave a possessed person's body without harming the person though it may render the possessed person unconscious for a bit.
Known Dark MatterEdit
Dark Matter CreaturesEdit
These creatures were native animals of Dark Star before the planet was destroyed and they are a part of the Dark Matter species.
These creatures were created with the DNA of Dark Matter.

Relationships with other speciesEdit
Dark Matter are usually hostile to other species and they are known to attack with little warning and no provocation. They are shown to be cruel and uncaring as they seem to kill others just for fun. They are considered the Fairies' arch-enemies, as they invaded Planet Ripple Star 20 years ago.
Many species of Planet Popstar greatly fear Dark Matter due to their rampage that they caused 20 years before the start of the series.
