Darkel was scheduled to be a character in Grand Theft Auto III, but he was removed during its development. Darkel was to be a revolutionary urchin who would vow to bring down the city's economy. One known mission for Darkel involved stealing an ice cream van, using it to attract pedestrians and then blowing it up (this mission was given to El Burro as I Scream, You Scream). Darkel was originally expected to give out Rampage-esque missions and terrorist-like missions. Rockstar never revealed why Darkel was removed, although it is suspected that Darkel was removed due to the September 11, 2001 attacks, since Darkel wanted to take the economy of Liberty City down. Despite this, Darkel remains listed in the GTA III manual credits and the character texture remains in the games data files. His gang of terrorists are said to live in the tunnel next to 8-balls bombshop. Another mission that was given to the player was where you had to get in a dodo and fly towards Love Media and crash into it and jump out, this taught the player how to jump out of planes but all of that was deleted for unknown reasons.
He was meant to live underneath the Callahan Bridge. His missions would be received here also.
Darkel was voiced by Bill Fiore.
