Initially a term used in the anime ∀ Gundam, The Dark History refers to the forgotten past before the Correct Century timeline and was related to the ∀ Gundam itself.

During the events of the anime, the dark history was revealed to be in fact the previous Gundam timelines dating from the Universal Century to the alternate timelines of Future Century, After Colony and After War. Various mobile suits used by the characters and battle scenes from various Gundam anime are viewed as records of the dark history.

Due to this revelation followed by sources from various books explaining ∀ Gundam's story, many Gundam fans believe that the timelines of the entire Gundam series before Gundam SEED- are connected.

Internet Slang

The Dark History is also a term used in the internet to describe a past history an individual would like to undo or want to forget. However, it depends on the individual to perceive whether it is or is not.

Nevertheless there are people who view things which are claimed to be a "dark history" among many as not one, causing heated debates or arguments.
