Dark Laser has Dark Troopers to lead him by his side.
They are a parody to Star Wars Stormtroopers, though in their first appearance they were more similar to Droidekas. They work for Dark Laser, usually helping him in his plans. They don't speak.
In their first appearance, they were more similar to Droidekas, being a ball with four thin robotic legs, two turrets on it's arms and a retractable cylinder head at the top. They were dark purple.
Later, in Dread 'N' Breakfast, they return, looking like more traditional Stormtroopers, no longer being robotic, with fully white armor, white gloves and helmets with blue "T" shapes on the front to see out of. They have similar proportions to Dark Laser. This appearances has been the one most commonly used since then.
More normally proportioned Dark Troopers are also occasionally seen, simply wearing white shirts, pants and caps that mimic the look of the more muscular, armor wearing Dark Troopers.
They first appeared in Hard Copy, coming directly out of the Toy Catalog with Dark Laser and causing destruction all over Dimmsdale.
They returned with Dark Laser in Dread 'N' Breakfast with the updated design, staying at The Turner's House when it was turned into a Bed and Breakfast so that Mrs. Turner can make extra money. They, along with Dark Laser, were trying to destroy Timmy.
