Differences from Samus
As with some Echo Fighters, Dark Samus is nearly identical gameplay-wise to Samus, with barely-noticeable differences. However, she has many basic animations that are different from Samus, a more standard roll which does not involve turning into a Morph Ball, electric effects instead of fire effects for most of Samus's fire-based moves, and slightly different hitboxes for a handful of moves.
Role in World of Light
Dark Samus is absent from the World of Light opening cutscene, though she was vaporized and placed under Galeem's imprisonment alongside the rest of the playable fighters (excluding Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
