Dark Lucifer (ダークルシフェル Dāku Rushiferu) is an antagonist in Ultraman Nexus, and a dark Ultraman who was created by Dark Zagi. However, it is so far only featured in novels relating to Ultraman Nexus.
3 years after Dark Zagi's death, there is a Memory Police who illegally uses a memo racer to be left behind, erasing the memories of those who have seen the battle of Ultraman and Space Beast, but the goal is to save the accumulated fear and turn himself into Dark Lucifer. Then, the man appeared in front of the only gate and Nagi, and when he said that he was going to surpass his master, Dark Zagi. He absorbed the surge of darkness overflowing from the Memoriser and turned into Dark Lucifer.
However, that single gate was not alone. With that, Komon and Nagi bonded with Ultraman Noa once again.He was finally defeated by Ultraman Noa after a fierce battle. After all, the identity of the man in black remains a mystery.
