"Looming... Darkness!!" known as "Approaching... Darkness!!" in the Japanese version is the fifty-fourth chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga. It was first printed on May 21, 2010 in the 07/2010 issue of V Jump.
As "Vision HERO Trinity" attacks Atticus, he attempts to activate his face-down "Air Barrier" to defend himself and his "Troposphere". However, Tragoedia, watching nearby through Principal MacKenzie, prevents him from activating it, as darkness envelops him. The attack hits, and Atticus loses. After Aster leaves, MacKenzie reveals himself, and makes Atticus his newest pawn. Seeing Adrian nearby, he does the same to him.
The next day, Dr. Crowler gathers the Duel Academy representatives to choose the pairings for the singles matches. Each of them is given a card with the picture of a location on the island printed on it. Each of the American students get one as well, and they are to meet their opponents at the given location. Jaden gets the mountain, Syrus the beach, Alexis the pier, Chazz the cliff and Bastion the forest.
Aster meets with Principal MacKenzie, who gifts him with what he describes as the final card in the "Legendary Planets" series. He states that the series was designed by Aster's father and that he would have wanted Aster to have the card. MacKenzie says he waited until Aster had matured to give him the card and that he regards him as his own son.
