Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins
Warp Darkmatter serves as the hidden secondary antagonist of the film.
In the beginning of the movie, Buzz Lightyear and Warp Darkmatter were partners as well as best friends (or so Buzz thought), sent by Star Command in order to search for three missing Little Green Men, stumbling upon one of Zurg's secret bases on a uncharted moon, where the Evil Emperor himself tortured the LGMs for information about their mind-link. Buzz and Warp then rescued the LGMs, however, forcing Zurg to escape, leaving his hornets to attack and activating the self-destruct sequence on his way out. In the chaos, Warp was pinned under some debris and Buzz attempted to save him, but Warp insisted Buzz to leave without him, pressing a button to force him to escape while he was caught in the explosion, leaving the devastated Buzz to presume him dead.
Later, Zurg had gained a new henchman named Agent Z, who he had attack the homeworld of the Little Green Men in order to steal the Uni-Mind, the mystacal orb which psychically connected all LGM-kind. Despite the best efforts of Buzz and his new robot partner, XR, Agent Z trumped them with his impressive skills and cybernetic arm which housed a multitude of weapons, allowing Zurg to make off with Uni-Mind in order to use it to mentally enslave the entire galaxy.
Later, when Buzz invades Planet Z, Agent Z then battles with Buzz, but Buzz manages to defeat Agent Z and hold him at laser point. It was then that Agent Z takes off his helmet and reveals himself to be Warp Darkmatter, shocking Buzz long enough for him to punch him unconscious. When Buzz comes to, Warp reveals that he had been working for Zurg ever since the academy, serving as a spy until he had learned of the Uni-Mind's existence. Zurg then taunted Lightyear on his naive friendship with Darkmatter, and then plans to use the corrupt Uni-Mind to enslave him as well. However, Buzz is then rescued by XR and Star Command's janitor Booster. Zurg orders Warp to kill Lightyear, but was knocked down by Tangean Princess Mira Nova disguised as a hornet. When XR and Booster crash-land, Warp tries to take a shot at them, but Mira ejects Booster out of the ship and unto Darkmatter, pinning him down and bruising his ego.
Warp is then cuffed to a pole and begs for help when Zurg's laser begins to blow. He is then escorted by Booster and XR, becoming scared when they parachute off the building to safety. Meanwhile, Buzz and Mira restore the Uni-Mind by ghosting Buzz into it. Warp believes Buzz to be dead at this point, only to be disappointed when he turns out alive. He is later taken into custody by Star Command afterwards.
- Warp Darkmatter has many similarities with the Arkham Knight from the Batman: Arkham franchise.
- When Warp wears his helmet, he bears a physical resemblance to Moltar.
