This article is about Yakon's home world. For the planet with a similar name, see Dark Planet.

"It's in the far end of the universe, where no light can reach it. Thus, the Planet of Darkness."
Shin describing the Planet of Darkness in "Next Up, Goku"

Planet Ankoku (暗黒星 Ankokusei, lit. "Planet of Darkness" or "Dark Star"),[1] is the homeworld of Yakon, one of Babidi's minions.


During the battle in Babidi's Spaceship, Goku battled against Yakon, a strange dark green alien creature. After a quick fight, Babidi decides to transfer the warriors to Yakon's home world, so that he could fight at his best. Upon arrival, it is apparent that the name holds up, as the planet is pitch black. Yakon believes he has the upper hand, seeing as how this is his home world and that he is apparently nocturnal. However, he soon realized just what he is up against when Goku, despite some surprise at the new environment, easily beats him around. Goku explains that he can feel and sense out Yakon's movements without even needing to see. Nevertheless, Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan, lighting up the surrounding area. Yakon proceeds to suck in Goku's energy, revealing that the monster feeds on light. Goku sees right through the technique, and allows Yakon to suck in another batch. Only this time, Goku kicks his power into overdrive and Yakon swallows far too much, which obliterates him. Babidi then returns the warriors to his ship, and the planet is never mentioned again.
