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 Romanoff, the Wicked God as well as a few multicolored creatures such as Nero Gryphis, Mystic Light Emperor or Sir Albides, Noble Deathknight have also appeared.

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


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.

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.
