Joanna Dark is a Falco player. Some people only know him as "JD" (especially in Europe), whereas in United States, most people only know him as "Joanna Dark". He used to be a world top 1P Mode player and one of the first European players to play in the United States.

He is originally from Montpellier, France, living in Paris between September 2005 and June 2006. He lived in Amsterdam for some time, training with Dutch smashers such as Amsah, before returning to Montpellier.


Joanna Dark started playing smash as the game was released. He attended his first tournament in September 2003, and won it. Since this day he has always been considered as one of the top French players. He first mained Samus, picking up Falco in 2004. His last tournament in Europe was the B.E.A.S.T. 7 tournament in Sweden.


Joanna Dark attended almost every tournament in France, and many tournaments in Europe. He also went to the USA to attend 0C2. Because of his presence during more than 30 tournaments, he became one of the most well known players both inside and outside of France. He is also the organizer of the DST series.
