DKR resembles an ethereal mass of shadows.
The Omnitrix symbol is located on his head.
- Decomposition- Whatever living organism comes in contact with DKR’s mouth, it will decay making it crumble to dust.
- Shadow Travel- DKR can teleport via shadows/darkness, merging into shadows/darkness and appearing anywhere else from the same element.
- Shadow Bonding- DKR is able to bond with a host’s shadow which provides offensive and defensive combat.
- Shapeshifting- DKR can stretch his body into any shape.
- DKR is able to take on the form of his host’s overcasting shadow giving him the exact physical appearance of the host.
- Blindness- Due to the lack of eyes, DKR cannot see and has to rely on its other senses and its host to be its eyes.
- Light- Light weakens DKR and it will resort to him dematerializing to his two-dimensional shadow.
- If exposed to too much light, his shadow body will be destroyed leaving nothing but its internal organs behind.
- Feral Nature- DKR has a vicious nature that cannot be controlled. If exposed to more darkness, DKR will become more ferocious.
- DKR’s species are parasites from the same planet as Brightspeed; they live underground in caves on darker regions of Iklipsyami in order to survive due to there being a low concentration of Lumin Luxide.
- DKR’s internal organs are the source of decaying powers.
- DKR is the second Omnitrix Transformation from Iklipsyami, the first being Brightspeed.
- DKR’s power to transform into the same shape of another shadow took inspiration from Noob Saibot from the Mortal Kombat series.
- DKR is part of the Parasite Playlist and is able to bond with other shadows for assistance in combat. He can even take on the physical appearance of the host shadow. However, he is unable to bond with any fire or energy-based aliens. He also cannot use the same powers and abilities as the host’s shadow.
- DKR’s design took inspiration from Carnage from Marvel Comics, Mega Gengar from Pokémon, Dark Shadow from My Hero Academia, and Bendy from Bendy and the Ink Machine.
- Like NRG and XLR8, DKR is an alien whose name is just letters that sound like a word that relates to him and his powers.
- DKR is short for Decayer.
