In the beginning of The Precursor Legacy, Jak and Daxter sneaked off to Misty Island against their watch over Samos Hagai's permission, where Daxter—in human form—fell into a dark eco silo after being confronted by a bone armor lurker. Daxter reemerged in the form of an Ottsel. They returned to Samos' hut, only to discover that the only person that could change them back, Gol Acheron, lived far north of the continent, and had not been in contact with any of the other sages in years. Additionally, Samos Hagai did not have the ability to teleport them to the dark eco expert, as the other sage's teleport gates had been disabled for "quite a while". Jak and Daxter then go on an adventure collecting power cells in order to power the A-Grav Zoomer's heat shield so they may travel above volcanic areas in order to reach Gol Acheron.
While at the Red Sage's hut in the Volcanic Crater, it is revealed that Gol, and his sister Maia Acheron, had been overexposed by dark eco and underwent malignant mental alteration, and kidnapped all of the sages so they can flood the world with dark eco by opening the dark eco silos using a Precursor robot powered by the rest of the sage's power. When Jak and Daxter were battling the evil siblings, four large towers emitted large eco beams to create light eco, which Daxter theorized could turn him back. However, the light Eco could also be used to destroy Gol and Maia and save the world. Daxter decides to save the world and remains in his Ottsel form for the foreseeable future.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 10-C. 8-A with Jak's weaponry | Low 7-C
Origin: Jak and Daxter
Attack Potency: Below Average Human level. Multi-City Block level with Jak's weaponry (While Daxter is capable of using Jak's weapons while Jak is driving, as a furry little creature, Daxter isn't very strong physically. He couldn't even turn on a water valve.) | Small Town level (Should be comparable to Dark Jak who took out a mechanical beast this size in 4 shots.)
Speed: High Hypersonic (Should be comparable to Jak as he's dealt with the same threats.) | At least High Hypersonic, likely higher (Dark Eco transformations heavily increase stats.)
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: Below Average Human Class | Small Town Class (Should be comparable to Dark Jak.)
Durability: Multi-City Block level (Casually tanked being in an explosion from a mechanical beast this size. Daxter can also handle being completely crushed several times and survive being trapped inside a pipe with extreme water pressure thanks to his toon-force.) | Small Town level as Dark Daxter.
Range: Standard melee range, several meters with weapons and Dark Eco attacks.
Standard Equipment: Daxter has an electric fly-swatter, A flamethrower attachment for his spray gun, and an ultrasonic attachment that causes a small explosion of blue energy.
Weaknesses: Daxter's size is obviously a problem as it disables him of being physically capable in combat unless he is Dark Daxter.
Notable Attacks/Techniques: Base form Daxter doesn't have any special techniques, but like Jak, Dark Eco fills up his arsenal with all sorts of moves.
- Dark Eco Ball: Daxter fires a powerful ball of Dark Eco.
- Frenzy Mode: Daxter spins around in a furious tornado and becomes temporarily invulnerable.
- Ground Pound: Similar to Jak's Dark Bomb except it stuns instead of kills.
