The Dark Squadron is the main villainous force from Blazing Lazers / Gunhed.
The Dark Squadron is an evil organization of galactic conquerors who seek to rule the universe. Comprised of alien mutants and robots and equipped with advanced weapons, they have reached the Solar System and threatened to destroy Earth with their secret weapon. In response, Earth sends the Gunhed starfighter to fend off the invaders.
The Gunhed fights the Dark Squadron's forces on Earth and on their space stations on the planet's orbit, finally reaching their mothership, where it destroys the central computer controlling all of their forces. That's not the end of them, however, as the Dark Emperor emerges from it for a final confrontation. With it's destruction, the mothership explodes, putting an end to the Dark Squadron's attack... Or is it?
The Dark Emperor is the main villain and final boss from Blazing Lazers / Gunhed.
