A Glow-In-The-Dark Dart is a type of Nerf dart and ammunition.

They can be bought in refill packs and are also packaged with the Electric Eel, Firefly REV-8, N-Strike Rayven CS-18, N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18, and the Rapid Glow.


A Glow-In-The-Dark Dart can be based off of a Mega Dart, Micro Dart, Streamline Dart, Elite Dart, or Collectible Dart.

As its name clearly states, this dart type can glow in the dark. This feature previously required special phosphorescent paper stuck onto the dart's body. The Streamline and Elite Dart variations have this trait built directly into the body foam. All types of glow-in-the-dark dart feature glowing heads.

Only the Electric Eel, Firefly REV-8, and the Firefly Tech clips have the internal lighting which actually triggers these darts' glow-in-the-dark properties.

Official description


The first blaster to have Glow-In-The-Dark Darts was the 1997 Max Force Electric Eel; it featured a four dart clip to house and help fire them. The clip is also translucent in order for the darts to be charged. The Mega Darts themselves were just regular Mega Darts with phosphorescent paper wrapped around them, to create a glow-in-the-dark effect.

The Glow-In-The-Dark Dart was revisited in 2003; Micro Dart variations were released along with the Firefly REV-8. Unlike the Mega Dart version, refill packs were released as well. This time, the glow-in-the-dark capabilities were built into the dart itself, and later derivatives would do the same.

The N-Strike Rayven CS-18 featured the release of Streamline Dart variants of the Glow-In-The-Dark Darts in 2012. They require the use of a Firefly Tech clip to "charge" and glow.

The N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 is the only Elite blaster to feature Glow-In-The-Dark Darts. Released in 2013, these glowing darts were based off of the Elite Dart. Like the Streamline Darts before, they require the use of a Firefly Tech clip to "charge" and glow. Like the Micro Dart version, refill packs were released.

In 2014, the Rebelle Super Stripes Collection sub-series featured the Rapid Glow, making it the only Firefly Tech Rebelle blaster. This blaster introduced the Collectible Dart variant of the Glow-In-The-Dark Dart.
