During the execution of the “Armed & Dangerous” fatality, Darrius ruthlessly tears off his opponent’s arms, following it up with two devastating strikes before delivering a final blow that sends their head flying.

My Thoughts

Darrius is overall a good Kameo, in my opinion. His unique fatality and skill make him the best Kameo out of all the other Kameos in the game.
