In an Alternate Timeline, Danny used his powers to steal the answers to a C.A.T. Mr. Lancer started becoming very suspicious of Danny. Soon he ordered a meeting with the Fentons at the Nasty Burger. Sadly, the Nasty Burger's vat of Nasty Sauce exploded just at that time, killing Danny's family, his friends Sam and Tucker, and Mr. Lancer. Danny who had nowhere else to stay decided that he should stay with Vlad Masters, knowing that he would be the only one to understand Danny's newly found depression. Despite their history, Vlad treated Danny like his son. Some point Danny would want Vlad to completely remove his Ghost Half from him. The operation was successful but Danny's ghost half who was filled with Danny's anger and negativity removed Vlad's ghost half as well. This fusion resulted in Dark Danny who not only was filled with grief but all of Vlad's evil traits as well. Dark Danny would kill Danny Fenton and destroy Vlad's mansion as well. Dark Danny let Vlad live which is still unknown to this day.

For the next 10 years, the newly formed entity would go on an all-out rampage across the Globe and the Ghost Zone. Many lives were lost and Ghosts were killed too. Dark Danny would not kill all ghosts he would do something to them to make them suffer. Ember was one of his victims. He ruined her vocal cords and she was not able to sing no more. She started to become very obese after that. The Earth was left in ruins. Dark Danny would eventually come across his old enemy Fright Knight and Dark Danny would become the Fright Knight new Master.
Clockwork had kept a close eye on Dark Danny seeing all of his rampages. The Observants ordered Clockwork to kill Danny's younger self before the accident. Instead, Clockwork sent a series of future ghosts to lure Danny 10 years into the future to battle his younger self. Young Danny would eventually come across an older Vlad who explained everything to him. Dark Danny tried to have Young Danny become him but he failed and he was defeated by Young Danny. Danny imprisoned him in the Fenton Thermos and Clockwork kept him in his palace. During these events, Danny would find out Jazz knew his secret persona and they decided to aid each-other whenever they needed it. Dark Danny has not been seen since but he has been trying to escape the Fenton Thermos.
