Dark Masters are evil spirits that appear as enemies in the night-time stages of Sonic Unleashed. These sinister creatures are among the more intelligent minions of Dark Gaia.
The Dark Master resembles an evil-looking wizardly figure draped in dark purple robes adorned with yellow symbols. It carries a cyan-coloured staff which it uses to attack its foes.
In combat, Dark Masters use their staffs as melee weapons for stick fighting. They will attempt to confuse their foes by constantly teleporting around the battlefield to avoid being struck.
