I'm Darrius. There are many in the Realm of Order who would call me a terrorist.

Darrius versus

Darrius is a character and an anti-hero in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Deception.


Darrius is a young, dark-skinned man (had he been born on Earth, he would be considered African-American). He is bald, has a goatee, and wears dark glasses while he fights. He wears a gold-and-black vest with sleeves that stop at his elbows. The collar of this vest covers his neck. He wears black gloves on his hands and dons blue, baggy pants. He also wears huge, yellow-orange boots that have shin guards attached to them.

As his alternate outfit, Darrius sports a pseudo afro with bright sunglasses. He wears no shirt and his arms have brightly colored wrist guards and black gloves equipped. He wears baggy bright orange karate pants with a long black belt holding them up. There is a strange pattern running down the sides of his pants. He also wears dark shoes.


Darrius is a Seidan who became disillusioned with Seido's oppressive nature. As a result, he defected, and began to lead a resistance movement to overthrow Orderrealm's Senate, which took advantage of the Laws of Order to manipulate residents into participating in the movement. One tactic was to have a Guardsman's family murdered, who would then retaliate and be expelled from the Guard. They were then ripe for induction into the swelling ranks. Others joined him of their own volition, such as the Cleric of Chaos, Havik.

He hired Dairou, a fellow Seidan guardsman, to kill Hotaru, the leader of the Seidan Guard. It is unknown if Dairou succeeded, though the three returned in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Also, Darrius was responsible for starting massive riots in Orderrealm.

Darrius joined the battle of Armageddon, siding with the Forces of Darkness, where he died along with almost every kombatant.

Powers and Abilities

Apart from his cunning and manipulative skills, Darrius is shown to excel in both strength and speed. Many of his attacks utilize agility that many other characters don't have, and others (particularly his finishers) show him using surprising strength with his bare hands. His Deception ending depicts him being able to take on and defeat Hotaru on his own, apparently quite easily.


  • In a Top 10 list hosted by, Darrius was placed at #6 of the worst characters in the Mortal Kombat series. describes him as "a direct knock-off of Blade, only not being able to pull it off and turn him into a generic black guy."
