Video Game Appearances
The Dark Planet was introduced in Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku. The Z Fighters must defeat four God Guardons in order to open the door to Dr. Lychee's room. Enemies encountered here are Jiku, Bude, Mirage Turles, Phantom Turles, Mind Slug, Mental Slug, Psycho Frieza, Cooler, and Soul Cooler.
It is where Goku faces the final boss Hatchiyack in Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen.
The Dark Planet appears as a stage in Dragon Ball Heroes, where it appears in several sagas as the setting of battles against Dr. Lychee and Hatchiyack.
- In Raging Blast 2, the design of the battle stage version of the Dark Planet is nothing like the actual design in the movie. Frieza's spaceship can be seen in the background, possibly a reference to the original Famicom game.
