Dark Lakitus are Lakitus found in dark places, like the Pit of 100 Trials. The only real difference between the two is that Dark Lakitus summon S. Blue Spinies instead of regular red Spinies. Like all dark enemies they are more dull coloured then their relatives. Sometimes they can raise their attack power. They are not very nice when they are charged so worry more about defeating these guys than the Spinies they produce. It's best to superguard so that way the damage will be inflicted to them! Oddly in the tattle log it says they throw spinies from pipes but that is not true, though they do in Super Mario World.
