Darkmess portals are portals formed of Darkmess that appear in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. First appearing during the Giant Wildclaw battle Driven to the Edge, Darkmess portals appear occasionally in battles, summoning enemies. The amount of enemies summoned and what kinds of enemies appear depend on the battle.

Darkmess portals appear at the end of the enemies' turn, and summon enemies at the end of their next turn. They can be destroyed by the Heroes by attacking them, although they cannot be dashed. If the portal takes damage, the enemies summoned will have less HP as a result. Some Darkmess portals are intangible and cannot be destroyed; these portals appear in "Survive" and "Defeat Enemies" missions.

In an update on June 20, 2023, Darkmess portals can now be viewed with the Tacticam, showing all enemies that will appear from the portals. Before the update they could not be viewed, and thus there was no way to predict what enemies would appear.

The HP of Darkmess portals do not change regardless of the difficulty level selected.


Tacticam analysis[edit]

  • Portal: Portals can spawn different enemy types. The amount of health these enemies have is proportional to that of the portal.
  • Indestructible Portal: Portals can spawn different type[sic] of enemies. Watch out for those, they can't be destroyed!
