Dark Mantis (Known as Darkneid Kamakil in Japan) is one of the eight Maverick bosses in Megaman X8. He is voiced by Tommy James.
In battle, Dark Mantis is very ninja-like with his attacks. He can dash along the ground to try and grab the player. If he succeeds, he will start draining their health. His overdrive attack sees him attack with large scythe-like energy blades. He is weak to the light-based weapons of Optic Sunflower.
- Dark Mantis seems to speak with a Texan accent.
