The nature of Dark Matter (DM) is one of the greatest puzzles of modern particle physics and cosmology. Dark Matter characterisation requires systematic and consistent approach for DM theory space. We propose a first complete classification of minimal consistent Dark Matter models, which provides the missing link between experiments and top-down models. Consistency is achieved by imposing renormalisability and invariance under the full Standard Model symmetries. We apply this paradigm to fermionic Dark multiplets with up to one mediator. Our work highlights the presence of unexplored viable models, and paves the way for the ultimate systematic hunt for the Dark Matter particle. Based on e-Print: 2203.03660
