Dark Matter did not originate from fanon, and more information can be found on their respective wiki(s). You may read more about it on the following wiki(s):


A small piece of Dark Matter.

Dark Matter is an evil force in the Kirby series. The entity is a massive black cloud that possesses or corrupts unsuspecting individuals. Dark Matter can also split into smaller entities with the appearance of an eye. The master of Dark Matter is Zero.


Dark Matter has the ability to possess a living, or in some cases non-living, creature. The creature becomes subserviant to Dark Matter, and may even gain some new dark abilities. In ancient times, Dark Matter simply corrupted living beings, rather than fully possess them. It has also been reported that Dark Matter can coagulate into bigger, more powerful beings.


Kirby: Onslaught

In the fourth installment of the Dark Matter saga, Dark Matter again takes control of several planets. However, the action is spearheaded by Demons under the control of Mind Matter. It is also revealed that Dark Matter is very ancient. The latest incarnation of Zero, the Iron Soul, is defeated by Kirby and friends.

Dark Matter once again returns, but this time reaching out from the most remote regions of the galaxy. The evil force desperately searches for artifact, which it can use to become more powerful.

Kirby Fusion

Dark Matter reappears in Kirby Fusion and possesses Meta Knight. Kirby luckily with the Ability Shards then forces out the darkness then battles the dreaded darkness in it's sword form.

Kirby and the Alternate Dimension

In a similar vein to Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, multiple peaceful lands have been taken over by Dark Matter, however, this time, the overtaken areas are instead in an alternate dimension. Despite that, Dark Matter seems to be slowly infiltrating through portals in order to reach Pop Star. This is implied to have happened in the bad ending, as the exit portal appears to be overlooked by a gigantic blob of Dark Matter. In the final main world (Articulated Airship), it is shown that Dedede has once again been possessed. In this game, Dark Matter-infested creatures are shown to have a single eye instead of two eyes (in Dedede's case, he appears to be sleeping, though there is an eye within his stomach, similarly to Kirby's Dreamland 3). Another reincarnation of Zero appears in this game, known as Dark Zero.

A witch tried to resurrect it. She failed.

It appears as a collectable trophy in the game.
