The Army of Darkness (called in the 4Kids dub as the Army of Decay), also known as the Dark Army and Creatures of the Dark, is a monstrous army made purely of dark magic. One important characteristic is that for each monster you cut or kill, there will appear two more. The monster also can unite into one beast. Only a possessor of the Dragon Flame (or something with equal power) can summon it with its spell, though Miss Griffin told the Trix that nothing can control it when they revealed their intentions of summoning it. Towards the end of Season 1 the Trix seemingly stole the Dragon Flame from Bloom and used it to summon the Army and destroy Red Fountain. When the Trix were defeated the entire Army vanished before everyones eyes because Icy, Darcy and Stormy no longer had the strength to command it, and because the power of the Army depended on that of the Trix.
