Dark Kingdom is the name of the villain group in the first arc of Sailor Moon Crystal.


The Dark Kingdom is an evil organisation which operated on Earth through an alternate, dark dimension where its driving power, Queen Metaria, was sealed. It comprises of the Shitennou and foot soldiers called Youma's. In the past, the Dark Kingdom organised a successful revolution against the Moon Kingdom, but its victory was cut short when Princess Serenity destroyed both the Moon and the Earth. In the present, the Kingdom's goal was to awaken and control Queen Metalia so that its leader, Queen Beryl, could rule the Earth, ideally at Prince Endymion's side, and to avoid the destruction of the planet at the hands of Serenity's reincarnation.
