Dark JakEdit

Dark Jak is Jak's dark alter-ego, able to be activated after collecting enough dark eco (at which point a small Dark Jak visage will show in the bottom-left corner). During this form, Jak is unable to use zoomers, the JET-Board, or his guns. He is also incapable of rolling, and instead crawls more rapidly than usual. Additionally, dark powers acquired later on replace his usual moveset, though after performing a power he reverts to normal Jak.
