Exedra was the Legendary Soldier of Darkus, until he gave his attribute energy to Percival and then the Bakugan evolved to Knight Percival.


Darkus Bakugan have a large variety of G-Powers and Ability Cards so there are many ways to use them. The strongest Bakugan of this Attribute is a Scaboid with 1300 Gs. The current Soldiers are Alpha Hydranoid, Knight Percival, Linehalt, Infinity Helios, Orbeum, and Skytruss.

Relation with Other Attributes

Bakugan Dimensions Fighting Styles

On Bakugan Dimensions, Darkus is unique because its gate cards are stackable; so if you play one on top of another, the first one will not be dispelled. Most of these gates also boost the power of Darkus attacks.


The symbol of the Darkus attribute is derived from the Han character for darkness, (yami).
