Dark Champion is the fourth upgrade on Path 3 for the Super Monkey in BTD6. It enhances the Super Monkey's blades so they deal extra damage to all Bloon types, including Leads and Purples. Pierce is increased to 7 instead of 3. While the base damage is increased by 1, from 1 to 2, extra MOAB Class bloons damage also increase by 1, from +2 to +3, meaning each blade deals 5 damage total to MOAB-class. It also shoot twice as fast alternating with both of its hands. Finally, the special “Darkshift” teleportation ability can now extends to global range, and has a shorter cooldown.

The Dark Champion upgrade costs $51,000 on Easy difficulty, $60,000 on Medium, $64,800 on Hard, and $72,000 on Impoppable.

Tips and StrategiesEdit

  • The pierce of this upgrade is 7, 8 with Laser Blasts, 8 and increase projectile speed with Epic Range, 9 shoot twice as fast with Plasma Blasts, plus another +1 with Obyn Greenfoot's Level 2-10 upgrade (or +3 with Obyn's Level 11+ upgrade).
  • This upgrade removes any immunities to the attacks of the Dark Champion.
    • This means that a Dark Champion with Laser Blasts or Plasma Blasts is able to pop Purple Bloons, and a Dark Champion without Plasma Blasts is able to pop Lead Bloons.

Version HistoryEdit


Buff Dark Champion now has a "Darkshift" ability which allows it to teleport anywhere on the map.  This ability is inherited from Dark Knight, which has a short-ranged version of "Darkshift".



  • Dark Champion, like Sun Temple, is a Tier-4 upgrade that allows the Super Monkey to pop bloons of any type.
