Darkrai is a mythical Dark-type Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. It has the ability to put others to sleep and give them never-ending nightmares (though this is done as a defense mechanism rather than out of malice).

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it can be spawned from a Poké Ball or Master Ball and attacks by using its signature move Dark Void, creating a large dark sphere around itself that puts any opponent that enters it to sleep and deals minor damage to them.

NA: This Dark-type Pokémon can cause people and other Pokémon to experience nightmares. While it is floating in the air, it tucks its legs in so far, it looks like they vanish! In battle it will use a move called Dark Void, which sucks in surrounding opponents and puts them into a deep sleep.

PAL: A Pokémon shrouded in mystery, Darkrai has the ability to implant nightmares into the minds of both humans and Pokémon. It has legs, but seems to prefer to float in the air. Its favourite move in this game is Dark Void. When this attack hits something, it creates a vortex that sucks in fighters and puts them to sleep.
