SPOILER WARNING!!
THIS ARTICLE OR SECTION CONTAINS SIGNIFICANT PLOT OR ENDING DETAILS

All endings are from the Darius Odyssey book.

Darius

Darius has two different versions of each ending, depending on whether the game was finished with one or two players. Apart from the ending of Zone V, the only difference is whether one or two ships and pilots are shown.

Darius Plus uses the only the two-player versions of ending Z for it's V and W Zones and ending W for its Zone Y and Z. Zone X uses the same ending.

Super Darius uses the same endings as the arcade version, but only the two-player versions. The exceptions are Zone V which uses the one player version and Zone Y which uses the two-player version of ending V instead of the joke ending.

Darius-R used a redrawn version of ending Z for its Zone K and O, and one of the W endings for its Zone L and N. And a new ending showing the red Silver-Hawk flying towards a blue planet for its Zone M.

Zone V: Like a Phoenix

The single-player version simply shows a close-up of the red Silver-Hawk flying by the screen, then it's overlayed with the following text:

MISSION COMPLETED
YOU DESTROYED ALL ENEMIES
AND WAR IS OVER
YOU ARE THE BRAVEST PILOT
SEE YOU NEXT GAME

The two-player version shows Tiat and Proco crashing their Silver-Hawks into each-other, becoming a phoenix, and flying into a big industrial structure, destroying it, and themselves in the process.

Zone W: To a New World

The pilot(s) are standing in an open field looking into the sunset.

According to Darius Odyssey, Proco and Tiat were unable to stop Belsar & Darius from being rendered inhospitable. The two of them start warping their ships sporadically further and further through space in hopes that their ships' sensors will eventually find a planet that is livable without terraforming. Eventually they find a hospitable planet covered in green grass like the one found on Darius. They settle there and watch the sunset together.

Zone X: Journey to the Unknown

The Silver-Hawk(s) are picked up by the tractor beam of a large ship.

According to Darius Odyssey, Tiat and Proco not only fail to stop the destruction of Darius but don't have enough fuel to find a new home on their own. They are left floating through space until a ship from an unknown star-system (being neither from Darius nor a Belsar ship) locate them and pick them up.

Zone Y: NICE FIGHT!

A joke ending showing someone dressed as the pilot(s) sitting at the arcade machine while the same text as in the single-player version of Ending V is shown.

Zone Z: Peace Regained

The Silver-Hawk(s) are shown flying over a large city.

According to Darius Odyssey, Great Thing was the Belsar mother-ship and upon its destruction, the rest of the Belsar fleet go dormant. Proco and Tiat return safely to Darius as heroes.

Darius II

Darius II for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis uses rewritten text for all endings and has a new, unique ending to Zone V'. The Sega Master System version uses the Mega Drive port's version of Ending V/Z' for its Zone J, Ending Z for Zone K, and Ending X for Zone L. Super Darius II uses the same endings as the arcade version, but with redrawn artwork.

Zone Z: Tactics

PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG WHO DESTROYED THE CENTER PART
OF THE FORTRESS OF THE ENEMY'S ALLIED FORCES SUCCEEDED IN
ESCAPING.
THE AMBITION OF THE ENEMY'S ALLIED FORCES WAS COLLAPSED,
EVERLASTING PEACE HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO DARIUS INHABITANTS.

Genesis and Master System Version:

LATER, PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG
DESTROYED THE ENEMY'S FORTRESS.
SUCCESSFULLY, THEY MADE THEIR ESCAPE.
AFTER THAT, THE LASTING PEACE WAS
RESTORED FOR THE PEOPLE OF DARIUS.

The ending shows the Silver-Wings escaping through a chute of some kind while explosions and/or sirens go off.

Zone V/Z': The New Heroes

THE WAR WAS OVER. PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG RETURNED TO THE PLANET "ORUGA"
AFTER FINISHING THEIR DUTIES,AND THEY WERE DECORATED BY THE DARIUS KING.
BLESSING...EVERLASTING PEACE FOR DARIUS INHABITANTS !

Genesis and Master System Version:

AFTER COMPLETION OF THIS DIFFICULT
MISSION, PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG
WERE
PRAISED BY ALL DESCENDENTS OF DARIUS
THE PRESIDENT OF Olga DECORATES
PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG WITH MEDALS
IN RECOGNITION OF THEIR EXCELLENT
SERVICE IN THE WAR.

Proco Jr. and Tiat Young are shown being decorated by the ruler of Olga in front of a mass of onlookers. (Although in the Super Darius II version neither the ruler nor the onlookers are shown.)

Zone W/V': As Time Passes

THE WAR WAS OVER. PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG RETURNED TO THE PLANET "ORUGA"
AFTER FINISHING THEIR DUTIES.
IT HAS BEEN,HOWEVER,PASSED SEVERAL THOUSAND YEARS IN "ORUGA" AND NO DARIUS
INHABITANTS REMAIN LIVING AND ONLY THE WIDE JUNGLE WAS DESOLATED THERE.
WHAT A MATTER... DARIUS INHABITANTS HAVE BEEN ALREADY RUINED......

Genesis Version:

AFTER THE BATTLE, PROCO JR. AND
TIAT YOUNG HAVE...
RETURNED TO THE PLANET OF OLGA.
IT HAD TRANSFORMED INTO A DENSELY
WOODED AREA.
AND NOBODY COULD BE FOUND.
WHILE THEY WERE IN BATTLE, THOUSANDS
OF YEARS HAD PASSED.

Proco Jr. and Tiat Young are shown standing on the surface of Olga, which now more closely resembles pre-historic Earth. The greeneries mentioned in the Genesis version is completely absent in the Super Darius II version, being replaced with a barren, volcanic wasteland.

Zone X: Unto the next battle

THE WAR WAS OVER. PROCO JR. AND TIAT YOUNG RETURNED TO THE PLANET "ORUGA"
AFTER FINISHING THEIR DUTIES.
HOWEVER,THE NEXT WAR AWAITS THEM.
THE ENEMY'S ALLIED FORCES WILL FORCE AGAIN A WAR AGAINST DARIUS INHABITANTS.

Genesis and Master System Version:

AFTER THE BATTLE, PROCO JR. AND
TIAT YOUNG HAVE...
RETURNED TO THE PLANET OF OLGA.
ANOTHER BATTLE IS AWAITING THEM.
ALLIED ENEMY FORCES HAVE DECLEARED
WAR AGAINST THE RACE OF DARIUS.

An otherwise unused jellyfish or physalia-based Belsar ship is shown advancing on Olga. In the Super Darius II version it has been replaced with Grand Octopus, who does otherwise not appear in either of the Super Darius games.

One explanation for this change could be an attempt to make this ending lead into Darius Twin (which came out 2 years before Super Darius II) and that the ship is intended to be the extremely similar-looking Red Mist rather than Grand Octopus with the latter's sprites being used instead of the former's for the sake of style-constancy.

Zone Y: GOOD MORNING!?

WHAT A MATTER !!
WAS THE WHOLE MORTAL COMBAT A DREAM...

Genesis Version:

"JUNIOR"
"PROCO JR.!!"
"PLEASE WAKE UP!!"

The game's joke ending. Proco Jr. wakes up to realize the entire game has just been a dream. In the Genesis port all the text is shown on a black screen and the reveal that Tiat Young is waking him from the dream is saved for the last frame.

Zone V' (Genesis)

AFTER THE BATTLE, PROCO JR. AND
TIAT YOUNG HAVE...
THEY LOCATED THE SOURCE OF THE
MAYDAY SIGNAL AND RESCUED
THE FRIENDS OF DARIUS.

Sagaia

The Silver Hawk is shown flying through space before transforming into a phoenix and/or the legendary Silver Hawk.

Darius Force

Zone L

THE SUN IS RISING AGAIN.
ALTHOUGH WE CAN NOT SEE THE FUTURE,
WE WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT
AND STAND GUARD OVER OUR MATERNAL STAR.

The Silver-Hawk lands back on Darius while the dawn breaks over the horizon.

The final line may be intended to have a double meaning, as it seems to refer to the sun, but the term "maternal star" would in Japanese be identical to the term "mother planet" which is used throughout the series to refer to planet Darius itself.

Zone N

PEACE IS NOT INEVITABLE.
BUT, DEEP INSIDE EVERY HUMAN HEART IS THE LONGING FOR PEACE.
IF YOU BELIEVE THIS, THEN IT MUST BE SO.

A white bird (invoking both a peace dove and the Silver Hawk) is shown flying above the clouds.

Zone O

THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IT HAS BEEN NATURE TO FIGHT.
WHEN CONFRONTED BY DANGER, HUMANITY HAS ALWAYS FOUGHT BACK.
CONTINUE THE FIGHT, FOR THE WAR IS NOT YET OVER.
ONE DAY, PEACE WILL RETURN AGAIN.

The screens show only space for the first three lines, then an explosion, and then the Silver Hawk is shown flying away. The screen goes black and the final line appears.

ONLY THE FEELING OF FATIGUE AS IF WE HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST OURSELVES REMAINED
THEIR EYES,THERE WERE LITTLE TRACES OF OLD FIGHTINGS,ONLY RICH NATURE
EXISTED PEACEFULLY.
THUS,"DARIUS" ENTERED A PERIOD FOR STARTING NEWLY..

US Version

THE GREAT ENEMY IS DESTROYED! THE DESOLATE LANDSCAPE THAT ONCE SPREAD ACROSS
THE PLANET IS REPLACED BY UNDISTURBED NATURAL BEAUTY; ALL TRACES OF THE VIOLENT
CLASHES WITH THE HORRIBLE ENEMY VANISH. ONLY THE FATIGUE OF BATTLE REMAINS TO

LONG SEPARATED FROM THEIR HOME STAR, BEGIN THEIR RETURN. AT LAST, THEY ARE
REUNITED WITH THE LAND THEY LOVE...

Zone V: Snow falling on the seabed

IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DARK SEA,THE LAST ENEMY WAS IN HIDING. THE UGLY AND

DEATHBLOW IN HIGH-PRESSURED DEEP SEA.
"SILVER-HAWK" COMMUNICATED SLIGHTLY THEIR LAST COMMUNICATION, AND THEY FALLED
AWAY INTO THE DEEP SEA BOTTOM.
THE MARINE SNOW CONTINUED TO FALL AS IF IT WOULD COVER THEM.

US Version

IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DARK SEAS, THE LAST ENEMY REMAINED, FURIOUS AND AFRAID, THE
NOBLE SILVER-HAWK FORCE ENGAGED IN A SERIES OF MARINE BATTLES.
THEY TRIUMPHED AGAINST THEIR FINAL FOE, BUT IN DOING SO,
THE FLIGHT LEADER'S SILVER-HAWK WAS FATALLY DAMAGED. THE COMMANDER OF THE
DOOMED SILVER-HAWK MADE ONE LAST COMMUNICATION: "ENEMY IS DESTROYED... PEOPLE
OF DARIUS...FREE TO RETURN... IN PEACE. WE ARE PROUD TO... HAVE SERVED". THE
TRANSMISSION ENDED THERE.

US Version

AFTER CLEARING THE FINAL ZONE, I UNCONSCIOUSLY FOUND MYSELF DRIFTING BACK TO THE DAYS OF THE PENNY ARCADE, BACK TO THE DAYS WHEN YOU PLAYED A VIDEO GAME,
AND WHEN ALL WAS DONE, YOU STOOD IN YOUR BEST VICTORY POSE, CHALLENGING ALL NEWCOMERS. AH, THOSE WERE THE DAYS...

Zone X: Remnants of the Threat

"SILVER-HAWK" RUSHED IN HUGE FORTRESS OF HEADQUARTERS,
AND SUCCEEDED TO DESTROY THE CENTRAL POWER SOURCE.
THE DISTORTED FORTRESS WAS SUNK INTO A SEA OF CLOUDS UNDER THE EVENING SUN.
AFTER ESCAPING BY A HAIR BREADTH,THEY WATCHED A HAPPENING TO THE END OF
FORTRESS, AND HASTENED TO GO HOME, BEING SATISFIED WITH THE ACHIEVEMENT OF
THEIR DUTIES THEY FLEW AWAY.
AT THAT TIME,UNCANNY SHADOWS APPEARED BEHIND THE CLOUDS.
THOSE WERE ENEMIES WHICH WERE CERTAINLY DESTROYED...THE BATTLE DIDN'T END YET.

US Version

SATISFIED WITH THERE ACHIEVEMENTS, SILVER-HAWK PROUDLY FLEW AWAY FROM
THE DESTRUCTION THAT THEY HAD WROUGHT. AT THAT TIME, UNCANNY SHADOWS
APPEARED ON THE SENSORS, THEY APPEARED TO BE HOSTILE!
HOW COULD THIS BE, YOU THOUGHT. HOW COULD I HAVE LET MY GUARDS DOWN,
AS THE SHIP WAS HIT HARD TO PORT, YOU KNEW, YOUR BATTLE HAS NOT YET ENDED.

Zone Y: The Descent of Heroes

THE ENEMIES WHO BURNED UP TREES AND DESTROYED EVERYTHINGS HAVE BEEN SHOT
DONE BY "SILVER-HAWK" LANDED THEY WERE UNEXPECTEDLY WELCOMED BY NATIVES.
ENEMIES WERE ALSO THE SYMBOL OF FEAR AGAINST THE NATIVES.
THEY WERE HEROES BECAUSE THEY DESTROYED SUCH ENEMIES.
NATIVES SENT IN GRATITUDE AN ACCESSORY FOR BRAVELY.
PEACE WAS RESTORED IN THE FOREST.

US Version

SILVER-HAWK HAS SUCCESSFULLY SHOT DOWN THE ENEMIES THAT WERE UNWELCOME TO THE  NATIVES. THE ENEMIES THAT SHOOK FEAR AND DOOM INTO THE SOUL OF THE NATIVES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED. THE HEAD CHIEF SENT HIS MANY GRATITUDES TO THE FLEET, AND NOW, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS DESTRUCTION EVERYWHERE, PEACE HAS BEEN RESTORED IN THE FOREST.

Zone Z: An Irreversible Mistake

IN THE CORE OF "DARIUS",ENEMIES BUILD HEAR LAST NEST.
THEY SUCCEEDED IN REPULSING THOSE ENEMIES AND DESTROYED ALL OF ENEMIES ON
"DARIUS", BUT BECAUSE OF THOSE BATTLES,"DARIUS" ITSELF RECEIVED MANY DAMAGES,
AFTER FINISHED THEIR DUTIES,THEY LEFT THE "DARIUS".
DAMAGES OF "DARIUS" EXCEEDED FOR THEIR EXPECTATION,RESULTING IN THE WHOLE
DESTRUCTION OF THIS PLANET.
THE NATIVE PLACE "DARIUS" WAS LOST, AND THEY WERE QUITE AT A LOSS WHAT TO DO.

US Version

WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT DARIUS, THE SILVER-HAWK FORCE WAS SURPRISED TO DISCOVER THAT DARIUS HAD BECOME THE CENTRAL POWER SOURCE OF THE ENEMY THAT HAD DONE SUCH DAMAGE TO THEIR FLEET. THE SILVER-HAWK SQUADRON RUSHED IN TO DEAL THE DEATH BLOW. AN ENORMOUS BATTLE ENSUED, WITH HEAVY CASUALTIES ON BOTH SIDES. BUT, THE SILVER-HAWKS EMERGED VICTORIOUS... OR SO THEY THOUGHT...

US Version

AFTER DESTROYING THE MAMMOTH BATTLE CRUISER, AMAZINGLY THE THICK CLOUDS THAT
WERE HIDING IN THE CENTER OF THE STORM, THE SAME CLOUDS THAT SCREENED OUT THE
EXTERNAL WORLD, ITSELF WAS CAUSED BY THE VESSEL. NOW THAT THE STORM HAS FADED
AWAY COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPORTERS ARE NOW WORKING PROPERLY, THUS THE
MIGRATION PROCESS HAS PROGRESSED SATISFACTORY. SOUNDS OF JOYFUL VOICES WERE
HEARD, "LONG LIVE DARIUS!!!". PEACE HAS BEEN RESTORED.

G-Darius

G-Darius is the only game in the series since the first Darius to not have any text in its endings. A text file with a summary of each individual ending is included in the Japanese Playstation version. Details from this and Darius Odyssey are used to flesh out and clarify the descriptions below: (The same titles are used in both.)

Zone λ: The Creation of the People of Darius

Lutia Feen's ship is damaged from the battle and explodes. Sameluck Raida gets out of his ship and rescues her. The two emergency land on Darius.

Zone μ: The Creation of a New Humanity

Before being destroyed Heavy Arms Shell releases one last attack to destroy the two pilots. Sameluck moves in to take the full blunt of the attack in order to save Lutia. Later Lutia crash lands on "the planet that Kazumn orbits". A stranger approaches her as she is distraught from damage and grief. Being reminded of Sameluck she takes his hand.

Zone ν: The Creation of Planet Darius

The inherently destructive powers of the A.N. powered engines of the Silver-Hawks destabilizes and reacts with the inherently creative powers of The Embryon. Lutia and Sameluck are both destroyed and reborn together as planet Darius.

Zone ξ: The Creation of a Reborn Silver-Hawk

The explosion resulting from Accordion Hazard's destruction is about to consume the two Silver-Hawks, but a light engulfs them and they merge becoming the Silver-Hawk of Amnelian legend, gaining the speed to escape.

Zone ο: The Creation of the Belsar Army

A Belsar ship scavenges the remnants of Great Thing.

According to Darius Odyssey Sameluck and Lutia didn't have the ability to travel the distance back to Amnelia and instead traveled to the closest inhabitable planet they could find; Darius.

Dariusburst

Zone H: Adam and Eve

Damaged in the battle Riga Pratica and TI2's Silver-Hawks' Burst Engines malfunction. The Silver-Hawks disintegrate, but Ti2 escapes to help Riga. The narration claim she will watch over him until he gets "true rest".

In the English version it is stated that she will wait until he recovers, but in the Japanese version it is ambiguous whether the line refers to his recovery or his death. If the latter it is also not clear where his death is imminent or if she merely will be watching over him for the rest of his life. Darius Odyssey implies the latter.

Zone I: A Harrowing Truth

Ti2 and Riga Pratica return to Darius, while the narration continues:

"They did not know,
that what was thought to be the enemies' mother-planet
was actually conquered by Belsar thousands of years ago,
that it was rather planet Amnelia; the birthplace of mankind..."

Zone J: The Resurrection of Thiima

As the Syvalion implodes The Embryon appears. As part of Ti2's AI operates on the same "hyperspace network" as the Thiima she realizes that she can communicate with it and flies to The Embryon to negotiate peace between the Thiima and humankind. Riga Pratica stays behind to await her return.

Zone K: A Fleeting Peace

Ti2 and Riga Pratica return home as heroes and a new legend is born.

Dariusburst: Another Chronicle

The Original and EX modes' endings are identical in terms of plot and cinematics but are told from different perspectives. The Original endings are usually being told by an omnipresent narrator while the EX ones are told through character dialogue.

Zone H: Rest for Now
Zone V: Wine of Victory

The pilots complete their mission and return home to their unspecified home-planet to await their next battle. In the EX ending they debate having a drink to celebrate their victory.

Zone I: Courage in the Heart
Zone W: Heroes of the Future

The game session is revealed to have just been a computer simulation. The players are encouraged to go to Chronicle Mode to take part in the "real" battle.

Zone J: With Strangers from an Unknown Planet
Zone X: Stand, Comrades. Time has come to fight back

The pilots are outnumbered by Belsar ships, but a fleet of yellow Silver-Hawks come to their rescue. They set off together to take part in the counter-offensive (Chronicle Mode).

Zone K: A Wandering People
Zone Y: To the Wilderness of the Stars

The pilots defeat the attacking Belsar fleet, but their home-planet is destroyed in the battle. The inhabitants that managed to evacuate sets off on a long quest for a new home.

Zone L: Unclouded Victory
