In the second season of Darker than Black (Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini), Hei mysteriously...

...loses his contractor powers somewhere in the middle of the season.

In the beginning of the anime we can clearly see that...

...Hei still has his contractor powers, since he uses them in a fight in episode 2.

However, in later episodes it is revealed by some of the characters that...

...Hei's powers are completely lost, and he is but an ordinary human (well, a well-trained human, at least).

So what was the reason for...

...Hei losing all of his contractor power out of sudden, and without being noticed?

If you notice that at the beginning of "Gemini of the Meteor" season BK-201's star vanishes, and he loses his powers. At the end of the season,

BK-201's star lighting up in the sky.

Each "False Star" has a corresponding Contractor, and they resonate when their Contractor's power is being used. As such I think it's safe to conclude the he has his powers back.


According to Yahoo! Answers, Hei lost his powers because of the trap that ensnared Hei in episode two. From Wikipedia:

Hei and Suō are caught in a trap after Hei seemingly kills August 7 by electrocuting the British Contractor. Later on, Misaki Kirihara is shown looking through a telescope which is directed towards the star of BK-201. The star fades away.

  • Suou was wearing the meteor fragment; Hei's powers (which was actually Bai fused with him) got transferred into it. I thought they made that pretty clear in the anime. Jun 11, 2017 at 9:14

Yes, he will regain his powers. It's possible.

In the Hell's Gate you can find what you lost, so he can get his powers back.


I think BK-201's star in the end of 2nd season means someone with Hei's power appeared. I think a new Contractor which is Hei's copies appeared. In the end, there is a new syndicate, a new Yin, new Contractors... why not a new Hei?
