Aww Gengar is a sweet parent to Darkrai

Did he... just cough out blood?

I'm not a doctor, but I don't think that's a good sign.

@Seiryuu no Kibachiyo: that's a REALLY bad sign! As in, "seriously in danger of dropping dead" bad.

...and was that scar on Darkrai's chest there before?

@Malc Modnar:
The scar's probably from the Focus Blast.
...Whiiiich also might have injured him internally, possibly damaging his lungs which would explain why he's coughing up blood.

@Seiryuu no Kibachiyo: I don't think he did, but with the red part on his neck, it's hard to tell.

@Hero of Comedy, look at the ground in panel 5

I'm pretty sure he's got a broken rib. Also maybe the reason he's not getting better is because he's starving without having nightmares to eat.

Poor Darkrai, with his constant apologizing. Who drummed *that* into him, the scientists or Victini?

And yeah, coughing up blood = never a good sign. (@Mr_L337: Thank you for pointing out the blood on the ground, I never would have seen it otherwise.)

Darkrai: *Coughs up blood.*
*Proceeds to beg and apologize.*

Now I just want to hug Darkrai! (Which is one of my least favorite Pokemon.) This poor little thing! He's apologizing because he's hurt!!! Victini can go crawl in a hole...

I'm pretty sure the constant apologizing is guilt over the whole,"I tried to kill the world twice." thing.

posted by PJSam on January 10th, 2017, 4:28 pm


@PJSam: That's probably part of it. But it honestly looks to me like he expects to be punished or something, because he thinks he's doing something wrong.

Aw man... Darkrai's really hurt. Hope it isn't bad enough to endanger his life.
Poor sweetie still apologizes even when he did nothing wrong. Out of all the characters in this comic, he's the one I wish gets a happy ending the most ;w;

Yeah, this is bad. What would you do in this situation?! Poor Darkrai, has to hurt others or else he's the one getting hurt...

@Random guest (Guest) Yep, you're first.. To be involved in death and many other vile and cruel events!

Oh geez... Darkrai needs help. I'm actually hoping they can find Mewtwo's group now, despite me dreading how horribly Darkrai will react when he learns that Lovrina's there. Not going to be fun for anyone involved, especially him. =(

I'm actually going to disagree with... most people on this page actually, in that I don't believe Darkrai needs nightmares to survive. Nowhere in canon does it imply that he eats nightmares- it's always described as a means of self-defense that he can't turn off. (Well, that, or he's simply evil and doing it on purpose. =I ) It also says that Darkrai(plural?) are said to live in seclusion and very rarely come out when people are around, which seems rather counter productive if he does need nightmares.

There is very little in this comic that doesn't have any support from canon. Unless there's something I missed (if I did, please tell me!), I just can't see it being the case.

Well there is some tangential evidence that Darkrai eats nightmares( it can learn dream eater) but more then that, My theory is that he spent so long chained up under the Ancient Relic that all of his strength has disintegrated and because of that he's taking more damage then he would have otherwise.

I generally try to be hands-off and let people come to their own conclusions but I think I'd better chime in on this one: Dust's correct. VF's primary source for Pokemon behavior is their dex entries and the games in general, and as far as I know there is no canon evidence for Darkrai being a somniovore. Furthermore Dream Eater is not even his signature move--that's Dark Void.

Give him Max potion.

@PJSam I'm less worried about the broken rib then I'm at Darkrai's reaction to Gangar.

He is acting like an abuse victim, which makes me think that pumpkin girl is going to get a really hard talking to and by talking I"m think her own little sister beating her within an inch of her life.

Because that little line was sooo telling and I for one am going to be so happy when the older sister gets what's coming to her. I'm going to sit there and watch with popcorn and charge admission to watch.

Coughing up blood is always a good sign of things to come.
