Blitz, the Storm Striker, Plasma Ravager from Cryos.

Blitz, the Storm Striker is a Plasma Plasma Ravager Ravager from the planet Cryos. He has mainly lightning-based abilities, and has a slightly reptilian appearance. In a hero squad, he pairs particularly well with Magnos Quantum Sentinel, due to his "Plasma Wreath" ability, as pointed out in the 'Squads and Abilities' video from Maxis. He is the first Living Weapon available in the game, later joined by Sage Bio Tempest near the end of the tutorial for all Crogenitor Level 1 and 2. Like all Ravagers Ravager, Dexterity is his primary stat, which boosts his special attack damage, critical rating and dodge rating.

Blitz the Storm Striker

Blitz the Storm Striker, Plasma Ravager from Cryos.

Blitz was first seen in a screenshot at Comic-con 2010, and was then later revealed on the Darkspore website at the end of summer of 2010. He stole most of Vex's Quantum Ravager spotlight and is now one of the most popular Darkspore Heroes.


When Crogenitor Ptyron first assessed the fallen world of Cryos for possible revival, he dismissed it as a lost cause. Gripped by a ravaging ice age, Cryos seemed as if it could never live again.
  • Blitz Alpha
  • Blitz Beta
  • Blitz Gamma
  • Blitz Delta

But when Ptyron saw a creature possessed of seemingly cosmic will-power, he became convinced that Cryos deserved a second chance. Ptyron had found a nest of twelve reptiliodis so resilient that they repelled attacks by a predator ten times their size. Subjecting the entire brood to genetic modification, Ptyron turned the tiny beings into a squadron of devastating, fiercely loyal, highly intelligent bipedal warriors.

And strongest among them was Blitz.

With his devastating blade-claws, a plasmatic shield, and the ability to ride lighting itself, Blitz led his brood-mares on a vast trek across Cryos's tragic, frigid wastelands. Losing nearly all his siblings, Blitz established an enclave in Cryos's equatorial region that became the center of Cryosi civilization. Not a conqueror, but a defender of justice, Blitz accepted any into his protectorate who could feed his growing community and raise a city around them. But if anyone attacked him or those under his protection, Blitz unleashed the full strength of his electrical wrath, earning the title that has survived a thousand years: the Storm-Striker.

  • Blitz is featured on the game's boxart. He was originally unedited in the picture, but in the more recent versions, he has Wraith's Necro Sentinel head, using either his "Voltic Slash" or "Sun Fist", an ability of Zrin Plasma Sentinel.
  • Blitz, by default, is one of the fastest heroes in the game, and because of this, he is often used as a "test subject" during testing and demonstrations of the game, as his speed allowed for testing and demonstrations to be performed more swiftly.
  • Blitz's 'Charged' ability icon was the same as his 'Ride the Lightning' icon on the original Darkspore site, but this was changed in beta to a bolt of lightning and it's name changed to "Deadly Precision".
  • His name is derived from the word 'blitz'. One meaning of this word is; "Deal with something energetically: to concentrate a lot of effort on something". Another meaning is; "Try to overwhelm somebody: to subject somebody to an overwhelming amount of something". Both meanings are fitting for his character. Blitz is also german for "Lightning", referring to his lightning-based attacks.
  • Blitz beares a resemblance to enemies Electric Sloth and Plasmic Howler. It was possible that his species was descended from these creatures, as Blitz's original lore stated that he was on a journey to Cryos' equator, where life had a better chance of thriving. On Earth, the area around the equator is most of a tropical climate, the same climate that the Electric Sloth was said to have dwelled in before Cryos' core cooled.
  • In his offical artwork and original Darkspore site picture, he had two pairs of eyes, but on the game itself, he has only one pair of eyes, and these eyes are smaller then the artwork eyes. In the game, his eyes are also quite narrow, but in the artwork, they are round.
  • Blitz is also the very first hero to be shown at starter level in-game, and therefore, was seen with his starting weapon instead of the Cashout variant. This confused players as to why he was given only 2 blades instead of 3, but as the game came out, players saw that the artwork weapons of heroes can only be unlocked during a Cashout.
