I hates alicorns!!!!!!!!
~ Umarak's famous quote

Umarak the Destroyer (formerly known as the Dark Hunter) is a major antagonist of the cartoon serie My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the third generation of the video games serie Gormiti, and he is the main antagonist of the video game prequel Gormiti: Angelioth's Memory. It's a demonic cyborg accidentally created by a Kra-Matoran named Vultraz turned into dictator who hated alicorns and tyrant of an archipelago of twenty islands known as Matorania, it's Twilight Sparkle and Takua's archenemy, Trappy's pet master, leader of his dictatorship, Skull Pirates and Skull Spiders's master and Tirek's pawn.

According to Matoran scientists, we learn that he was born of the cosmos nothingness and that his true form being only the Destroyer.

He was voiced by Armin Shimerman who also played Dr. Nefarious in his Hunter's form and Josh Petersdorf who also played Roadhog and Armageddon in his Destroyer's form.


Umarak is as old as the alicorns themselves, linked to the primal force of darkness. Practical and tactical, Umarak could wait a long time to get his prayer, taking advantage of the weakness of those around him. The Shadow Hunter was a ruthless man and had no compassion or concern for anyone but himself, and so he was willing to sacrifice peaceful animals (like dinosaurs and besides the alicorns) such as the Elemental Beast for power.

His fatal flaw was his arrogance, believing that his cleverness and intelligence surpassed everyone, even Tirek.

After his transformation, Umarak began to hate alicorns, so he maintained awareness, he saw that Princess Celestia was the responsible for sending Angelioth and his friends in search of exploration for Matorania.

Power and Abilities

As a hunter, Umarak was competent in archery. He was armed with his weapon, a bow hunter who can launch laser arrows. His control over shadows also allows him to summon shadow traps and use shadows to move.

After his mutation, Umarak doubled in size and strength, and with his yellow flames, he was able to turn his Shadow Traps into elemental monsters.

As a Destroyer, Umarak relied on his natural brute strength, his claws and horns made of the horns of his mutated mask.

~ Umarak's last word before his death


  • Umarak is arguably considered to be Hasbro's most evil and sinister antagonist to date. In fact, Umarak was meant by Nolife Games to be as evil and as vile as possible, in an attempt to avert the trope "Evil is Cool", common to many Hasbro villains. Instead, he wound up being a Love to Hate example.
  • Umarak's destroyer form could be considered to represent the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction, there are 66 million years ago.
  • During the character's design, Umarak was originally a Matoran who was cursed by Tirek, but it was removed, we learn that he was born of cosmic nothingness. The scriptwriter understands that Umarak is a cyborg and not a Matoran.
  • Originally, during the character's design, his name was Makuta Teridax, but it was canceled due to not keeping a character from the first generation of Bionicle, as long as he is a villain, even though in Bionicle , that there are two generations, so Nolife Games (the video game company loyal to Hasbro) had to choose the villain of the second generation of Bionicle, provided that it is a villain, he later named the character "Umarak", to avoid keeping the main antagonist of the first generation of Bionicle.
  • Like the Skull Spiders (like the Lord of Skull Spiders) and Skull Pirates (like Captain Kulta), Umarak is one of the inhabitants of Matorania not to be a Matoran, but unlike Skull Spiders and Skull Pirates, Umarak is a cyborg.

  • Umarak is the only antagonist not to be betrayed by his master.
  • It is unlikely that Umarak has ever known the Gormiti and the inhabitants of Equestria apart from all types of ponies, although he lives in Matorania and not on Equestria, although he knows Tirek, he does not has never known Princess Celestia, Princess Luna and Princess Cadence (except Twilight Sparkle).
  • Umarak is the only character who has never seen or known the Gormiti (including Bendimoch and his brother Mexplodvif), despite he lives in Matorania.
  • Umarak is the only robotic character not to be a Matoran, but a cyborg, despite the fact that Vultraz created it.
