Darkmess Taproot is a form of Darkmess that appears in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, located at Palette Prime, from the Darkmess Tentacle battle Roots of Corruption. There are four Darkmess Taproots in the battle: one at the elevator, and three more below the elevator.
The battle starts at the elevator, where two Squashettes are located, right next to the first Darkmess Taproot. The heroes must attack all three Darkmess Eyes in the same turn to defeat the Darkmess Taproots, otherwise they will restore themselves. After the first Darkmess Taproot is destroyed, the elevator will move down, and the heroes must survive for five turns while the elevator takes them to their destination. During these five turns, Darkmess portals containing Wildclaws will appear.
When the elevator stops at the bottom, three more Darkmess Taproots are found, along with several Flamin' Stooges and Ghostly Walkers. Beep-0 provides advice for the heroes, as when a Darkmess Taproot is destroyed, some cover will disappear as well. After these three Darkmess Taproots are destroyed, the battle is cleared, and the heroes receive a Purified Darkmess Energy Crystal. The color for the trees trees at Palette Prime returns as well, along with the wildlife. The Spark Electrogeddon joins the heroes as well.
