Not to be confused with the newer Mega Dart.

The Mega Dart, also known as the Sucker Dart, is a type of Nerf dart and ammunition.


There were two different types of Mega Darts despite appearing very similarly. The original version of the dart, referred to as the "Type 1", had a longer range, but was less durable. When blasters started to use compression rings, Nerf switched to a different dart that looked similar. While this dart, dubbed the "Type 2", was similar in appearance, but its range was much more mediocre. The Type 1 Mega Darts were discontinued in July 1997 [1].


First introduced in 1993, it was one of the very first types of Nerf darts. It was longer and slightly bigger in diameter than a typical Micro Dart. The blasters that fired these darts were very popular in the 1990s and the early 2000s.

It was last used in 1998. The Mega Dart is now discontinued and cannot be purchased in stores.

Its successor was the Screamin' Mega Dart, which was used from 1999 until 2007.

Original Mega Darts should not be confused with the 2013 release of the N-Strike Mega series Mega Darts.
