The Dark Hero (ダックヒーロー, Dakku Hīrō) is the one hundredth and twenty fourth chapter of the Fire Force manga series.


The chapter opens with a flashback to Victor Licht's time working in Haijima Industries Main Office. He is complimented for his thesis on Spontaneous Human Combustion and his conclusion, which he claims was the result of searching for the right answer until he found the truth. Sometime later, Licht walks alone at night and encounters Joker for the first time. Joker claims that Victor commitment to finding the answers is rooted in his sense of justice, which the scientist denies. He is only interested in the truth. Joker smiles and tells him that is exactly what a hero needs. 

In the present day, Shinra is outraged that the discoveries made in his last adventure will be concealed from the public for the next three years by the church. While Akitaru Ōbi claims this is necessary to ensure social order, Licht smirks that firefighters can't defy orders. Meaning someone else needs to take action. 

At night Company 7 searches for Captain Benimaru , with Konro hoping that he isn't going to be reckless. Standing on a rooftop, observing The Holy Sol Temple – Holy See, Benimaru and Joker discuss their plan of attack. While Benimaru appreciates Joker's blunt approach, he is confused by his willingness to attack the heart of the Empire while being a wanted criminal. Joker explains that he believes he has the right to know the truth about his Country's past and will dismiss morales and ethics to uncover it. He aims to uncover the true sacred scriptures hidden by Sol Temple, something Benimaru hasn't heard of before. Joker claims that he knows about the Sol Temple and turns to begin the attack.

Within the Holy See,Raffles III talks with his subjects about the role of the church within the world, the truth and Asakusa's respect for Benimaru . This discussion is interrupted by a loud noise, signalling the arrival of Benimaru. While Benimaru battles the monks of the temple, he talks with Joker about the dark sensation he feels within the Amaterasu . Which Joker smiles about, noting Benimaru's intuition.

Before they can advance beyond the courtyard, Benimaru collapses to the ground. Joker is bemused, as a large member of the church moves to confront the intruding pair and claims he will not offer them their last rites.


  • Joker's first meeting with Licht mirrors the outlaw's second encounter with Shinra in Chapter 34: The Boy Knight.
  • This is the first introduction to The Haijima Main Office and The Holy See.
