The Dark Surfer is an evil clone of the Silver Surfer and a major antagonist during Season 21. He assists Yami Bakura by capturing the Heroes of Legend and imprisoning them. However, Dark Surfer is outsmarted by the heroes and loses the Infinity Sword and Infinity Gauntlet. Later, Dark Surfer begins looking for the Infinity Sword and Infinity Gauntlet, but when he sees Zombie Wasp become Dark Wasp, he decides to watch as she creates the Shadow World, and winds up with the Silver Surfer after Dark Wasp scatters the heroes and villains across the Shadow World. In Season 22, The Dark Surfer is forced to compete in the Neo Smash Champion Tourney due to Meta Knight crippling the villains' plans. Despite this, the Dark Surfer keeps an eye on Wiseman rather than fight other teams, due to Wiseman's mysterious nature. After being sent to Earth-TRN028, the Dark Surfer temporarily joins the Heroes of Legend in order to stop Wiseman and the Dark Heroes of Legend. Later, Dark Surfer battles against Zombie Wasp to determine who will keep the Infinity Sword, but is pulverized by the corrupted heroine. When Dark Surfer tries to attack Zombie Wasp after she becomes Dark Wasp again, he has his neck broken and has a hole blasted through his gut before being thrown in the water. The Dark Surfer is revived at the end of Season 22 when Gohan and Bowser cleanse the Smash Core, and appears to be purified of the Infinity Sword's corruption. In Season 26, the Dark Surfer becomes a Hero of Legend at Mutabrid's suggestion. In Season 30, the Dark Surfer sacrifices his life along with Anubias, Sellon, Zenthon, Zenthon Titan, the Nonet Bakugan, and the Bakugan and Mechtogan belonging to Anubias and Sellon in a last ditch effort to defeat Mechtavius Destroyer. The Dark Surfer is revived in Season 31 when Naruto Uzumaki and Drago go back in time and fast foward to the present, negating his death.
The Dark Surfer is nearly identical to the Silver Surfer, except that he is darker in color and wears the Infinity Gauntlet on his arm.
After being revived, the Dark Surfer looks exactly like the Silver Surfer, except his eyes are still green. He later reverts to his original appearance.
