Dark Lord is a race of creature in the Darkness Civilization.


While being predominately a Darkness race, a mono-Fire Civilization creature with the Dark Lord race exists with Mad Romanov, the Wicked God.

They are most well-known for the Romanov line of creatures that is shared with the Knight and Zombie Dragon races, which also include the Mad Rock Chester group of God race creatures.

In Revolution, a creature version of Terror Pit, which Death Hands, Misfortune Emperor belongs to this race. It also resembles the aforementioned Romanov creatures as well.


Dark Lords make up the governing class of the Darkness Civilization. This race practices secret arts, including genetic engineering, and has achieved something close to immortality.

The Dark Lords were responsible for the creations of the Chimeras, Death Puppets, and Demon Commands.

However, as the leading Dark Lord of the Darkness Civilization, Tyrant Black Monarch is a Demon Command as well, it is possible that they and the Demon Commands share the same lineage.

Dark Lords control the territory's energy resources, toxic gas proliferation, and the cures for disease—enjoying total power over the welfare of other races. In return, they demand unconditional dedication and absolute obedience.

While Dark Lords appear to resemble humans, it is unknown what lies behind their masks. Rumor has it that their faces are horribly disfigured as a result of secret experiments, or that the mask simply covers an unfathomable darkness. These masks are deceptively beautiful, modeled like humans’ death masks, eyes peacefully closed.

Using weapons made of shiny metallic artifacts that look like condensed solidified darkness, Dark Lords have the ability to absorb life and regenerate. They influence their enemies through psycho-kinesis and heighten their abilities by sacrificing their prey.
