Gwen Darcy[1] is a member of Team NDGO. Gwen and her team fight Team SSSN in a match of the Vytal Festival Tournament in the episode "New Challengers...".


Gwen is a young female with olive skin, curly black hair pulled back from her face into ringlets, and brown eyes.

She wears a black corset dress with a dark gray front, purple hem and purple laces on the back. The upper part of her dress is light gray, with a high gray collar and elbow length sleeved with black cuffs. Her belt is a long purple ribbon edged in gray, with a bow in the back and tied in the front, and connected to the belt are a pair of armor tassets that also act as storage for her weapon.

She also wears light gray stockings and pale gray ballet flats,[2] with ribbons around her lower legs.

Powers and Abilities

Gwen fights with a plethora of throwing knives, which she keeps concealed in her armored skirt. Her fighting style seems to resemble ballet, as she spins around on her axis in order to give her throwing knives added momentum. She is often seen throwing three knives at a time.


Gwen and her team are students at Shade Academy, from the kingdom of Vacuo. Her team journeys to participate in the 40th Vytal Festival combat tournament, hosted by the kingdom of Vale. During the match she, alongside Dew Gayl and Nebula Violette, are knocked out by Neptune Vasilias when he electrifies the pond they were standing in, ending the match with Team SSSN as the victor.
