So this is the result of me wondering - we know what the true form of Dark Matter looks like, but what if the individuals of them had their own specialized designs like Dark Swordsmith? And so we have this sketch.

Dark Dizzy is the one who possessed the Dizzy Tree Whispy Woods. He looks the closest to the true form, on account of his relatively low power level, but it's a little different. What I didn't convey as well as I'd like was that the bits coming off the main body are actually intended to be flower-like petals.

Dark Herder has a fancy hat and a lasso. Not quite as cowboyish a hat as I wanted, but it looks fine. Of note is that the loop at her lasso's end is the bit accented with color.

Dark Aqueous is primarily based on Morpha, of course. I at least went with a weird sort of hollow-looking pupil for her.

Dark Frigid is sort of designed like a weird fat bird. I just sorta thought about it after drawing the ice crystals on their back.

Dark Twilight is a neat design, I think. Sun-like rays around his main body, and then the "hands" shaped like crescent moons.

Dark Engine is sort of simple, but I do like the idea of just the one gear, bizarrely off-center and rotating through her quasi-cuboid body.

Dark Swordsmith was obviously not designed by me.

Sweet designs.

Only problem is, the Dark Swordsmith was the one that possessed Dedede but his design isn't related to Dedede at all. =P

@Nashew: You mean aside from the... whatever you call the part of his robe with the zigzaggy pattern? That is yellow and red according to official art, like Dedede's? :P

But actually, none of them are meant to really look that much like their possessees. Like, Dark Aqueous isn't a fish, for example.

@CapedLuigisYoshi: Yeah, but they're generally themed around them. Dark Aqueous is water-themed.

@Nashew: I guess.

Though you could still say there's a thematic connection - Dark Swordsmith did state that he was the acting leader of the Dark Matter collective. (No telling if that's as self-declared a title as Dedede's.)

@CapedLuigisYoshi: Eh, good enough. None of it's canon anyway so I guess it doesn't matter. (pun intended)
