Cursa's stronghold Icon for Cursa's stronghold in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope . It may appear daunting, but remember Momma's words. Unity. We must trust in one another. Trust that our bond makes us stronger than all the fear and anger Cursa could EVER add to the galaxy.”
JEANIE, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

Cursa's stronghold is the sixth and final world the player visits in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, accessible after having collected two Purified Darkmess Energy Crystals from Barrendale Mesa. It is comprised of many floating rocky platforms and the Comet Observatory, controlled by Cursa. Also in the background are smaller versions of objects found from the other planets: the lighthouse from Beacon Beach, the Stone Mask from Pristine Peaks, a Rabbid scarecrow from Palette Prime, the Everbloom Tree from Terra Flora, and the Windmill from Barrendale Mesa.

Several cannons are found and are used to launch the player from one major platform to the next, and a golden cannon at the end of the area that launches the heroes to the Comet Observatory for the final battle with Cursa.

After Cursa is defeated, Cursa's stronghold can no longer be revisited though the Quest battles can be played again from the Quests menu. There are three Memories that the player can unlock.


The heroes arrive at Cursa's stronghold, and use the Shield Buster from Momma to destroy the barrier. After it is destroyed, it reveals the Comet Observatory, with the core to the Darkmess Dimension in the center. Due to the large density of Darkmess energy around the Comet Observatory, the thrusters for the WM ARC cannot function, so the heroes land on debris from the barrier.

To reach the Comet Observatory, the heroes must get past two Darkmess Puddles, which have Darkmess clones of Bowser and Edge, known as Darkmess Bowser and Darkmess Edge, respectively. After defeating the latter, Edge reveals to the group that she was created by Cursa, and rebelled against her. The heroes then use a golden cannon to reach the Comet Observatory.

In the Darkmess Dimension, the heroes confront and defeat Cursa, as well as free Rosalina. Afterwards, the heroes travel back to Peach's Castle, and Rosalina thanks the heroes and bids them farewell.
