The Light and Dark were elements that were even unknown to Master Eon himself. However both were cut off from Skylands when the Core of Light was destroyed, leaving the Skylanders of the Light and Dark elements stranded in their respective realms. They would later return to Skylands when the immense explosion that destroyed Cloudcracker Prison broke open the very foundation of Skylands, officially revealing the presence of the two new elements. Dark Skylanders, such as Blackout, know of their sinister origins, but show bravery, compassion and honor nonetheless. Dark Skylanders use the power of the darkness to overpower their foes. In toy form, they stand on pedestals of black smoke.
