The major members of the Dark Matter species.
Varies on the variant species
Dark Matter are an extraterrestrial species that are the true main antagonists in Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of Darkness, where the species made it's debut in the original and first digital versions of the series, but the species now has it's debut in the series' 2nd installment due to a cameo.
The species' homeworld, Planet Dark Star, was devastated by a asteroid 20 years ago prior to the beginning of the series and their homeworld's devastation is what eventually set off the Dark Matter Cataclysm. They are the oldest species in the Stella System, existing since the era of the dinosaurs.
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. However, not all Dark Matter are bad.
Much like in the games, Dark Matter is led by 0.
Dark Matter are known to come in many different variant species, each with their own unique appearance. While many of the Dark Matter from the games do appear in the series, a lot of new variants appear in the series and they are based on dinosaurs seen in the real world. These dinosaur-like Dark Matters are known as Dinomatters
Dracomatters are the dominant race of Dark Matter and as their name suggests, they are Dark Matter dragons and they are technically Dinomatters as well as they are the theropods because they possess sharp teeth and claws. Because of these traits, they were the apex predator of Planet Dark Star.They have dragon-like bodies with stubby feet like most other characters of the series have, light black scales, anywhere between 4 to 5 osteoderms on the back of their head, clawed hands with 3 fingers and a thumb.
Their bodies end with a tail and they can have anywhere between 1 to 4 tails, 1 tail being the most common and 4 tails being the rarest. Their claws and osteoderms are either some shade of red or purple in color. Their scientific name is Dracodontosaurus horridus.
Average Dark Matter AbilitiesEdit
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 back when it was still inhabitable.
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. However, as the series is meant to be like a cartoon, the Dark Matter will leave the person's body once the possessed person is knocked out or beaten up enough. 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.
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.
