Dark Matter is one of the primary antagonists of the Kirby series, appearing in three games to date, namely Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It has many different forms, one of its most common appearances being a shadowy sphere encircled by small orange or purple balls, and sporting a single eye. It is capable of possessing other life forms and making them bend to its will, an ability that it frequently takes advantage of to possess Kirby's friends and rivals (notably King Dedede), often forcing them to fight him. While being possessed by Dark Matter, some creatures obtain enhanced and sometimes bizarre abilities. In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Dark Matter attacks Ribbon and later possesses Waddle Dee, Adeleine and Dedede. Dark Matter also shows up in Kirby Mass Attack's Kirby Quest Sub-Game as the final enemy encountered in the sub-game's final chapter, Chapter 4. Its appearance is similar to that of its Kirby's Dream Land 2 incarnation, but is bigger and has orange balls as opposed to purple.

A clone of Dark Matter in its original sword-wielding form is fought as a surprise boss in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is faced near the end of Meta Knightmare Returns, and in The True Arena.
