Is Darkly an ally? As mentioned, she helps Mario and the party to enter Twilight Town, but that's all. -Wayoshi 11:07, 24 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree. Darkly is not an ally; he's just a resident of Rogueport (former resident of Twilight Town) who helps Mario and the gang out once. He is not a part of the bigger fight. --Son of Suns 01:04, 25 June 2006 (EDT)
