Variant of Darkmess

Darkmess Tentacles are a form of Darkmess that appear in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. They are a big and dangerous form of Darkmess that has sprouted tentacles, and two are found at each of the five planets. Darkmess Tentacles also cause disaster for each planet. After clearing out a Darkmess Tentacle, the heroes can purify it into a Purified Darkmess Energy Crystal, which can be used to create warp tunnels to other planets, although two crystals are needed to do so.
