Abstract: Null results from collider and direct detection searches constrain dark matter candidates. We analyze these constraints in the context of minimal extensions to the Standard Model (SM). These models contain a singlet dark matter particle with cubic couplings between SM particles and 'partner' particles with the same gauge quantum numbers as the SM particle. We find that collider and direct detection searches are remarkably complementary for these models.
