Futari wa Pretty Cure
The Destruction of the Garden of Light
The Power of Destruction of the Dusk Zone began to kill the Dark King, so he decided to steal the Prism Stones and to get the Power of Creation. However, he and his henchmen only stole five of the seven stones and the two remaining stones were sent to earth. Then, he entrusted the Prism Stones to his henchmen Ilkubo, Poisony, Kiriya, Gekidrago and Pisard and sent the last one to earth who had to steal the two Prism Stones which are protected by Mepple and Mipple.
Stealing the remaining Prism Stones
Dark King is first shown after Pisard's first failure and he orders Pisard to steal the two Prism Stones. He threatens him several times, but after Pisard's final defeat and the loss of one of the Prism Stones, Dark King sends Gekidrago who fails like his predecessor, too, and another Prism Stone is collected by the Pretty Cures. After that, Poisony and Kiriya take this task, but Poisony is eventually defeated and Kiriya betrays the Dark King, resulting the loss of two more Prism Stones. Dark King's last Prism Stone, held by Ilkubo, is eventually taken by Cure Black and Cure White. However, Ilkubo tries to steal all seven Prism Stones and is about to hand them over to Dark King in the Dusk Zone, but the two Cures fight Ilkubo, who eventually weakens them, however, Dark King just kills him because he could damage the Prism Stones. The angered Cures attack Dark King with Marble Screw which is blocks himself. Unfortunately for him, the Queen supports the two girls and gives them a little bit of her power and the Cures destroy Dark King's body.
Resurrection and the Final Fight
Right after his body got destroyed by the Cures, he sends the Seeds of Darkness to Earth and Juna, Regine and Belzei Gertrude are born. They are able to resurrect him, but he still needs the Prism Stones or the Power of Destruction will kill him. Those henchmen do steal the Power of Creation from Pollun, but they use that power for themselves and get independent from Dark King. In the Dusk Zone, the Seeds of Darkness fuse into the Giant and fight on the one hand Dark King and on the other hand the Pretty Cures. While the Cures attack the Giant with Rainbow Storm, Dark King consumes the Giant and receives the Power of Creation. He enters the Garden of Rainbows, uses his power to destroy the world, but Cure Black and Cure White fight him back. First, it seems that the Cures do not stand a chance against Dark King, but then, Pollun transfers the Power of Light to the two girls who overcome Dark King and eventually kill him with Rainbow Storm.
