Corrupted Core is a item that first appeared in Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered as a ultra powerful bomb that goes off when enough damage is sustained. It reappears in Fantendo Smash Bros. Victory with the same function.
Corrupted Cores float on the ground of the stage and cannot be moved unless through hacking or the ground under them disappears. When attacks connect with it, the Corrupted Core sustains and harnesses the damage. It eventually explodes when 100% damage has been done to it.
Corrupted Cores are introduced as a item in this game. Corrupted Cores do a set explosion in this game, covering "half of a average stage" with it's explosion.
Corrupted Cores make a appearance in this non-canon entry. It is unknown what it's function is in this game.
Corrupted Cores return in Fantendo Smash Bros. Victory as a item. It does a scaled explosion, albeit somewhat nerfed. It will do a explosion 1/4 the size of the stage it's on.
Corrupted Cores appear in Nintendo & Fantendo Play: Dodgeball! as a Non-Dodgeball that appears on the court at random. When you hit with a dodgeball or special attack, it will absorb the damage and expand with each attack. When it takes enough damage, it does an explosion 1/4th the size of the arena ground.
- Although much of the Corrupted Core's existence and history is a mystery, it's possible that it's a metaphor for the enemy in each of the games it appears in.
- In Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, it is cracked and has disastrous effects when enough people kick at it, not unlike how The Shattering functions.
- In Fantendo Smash Bros. Victory, a hidden image of a glitched laugh is on the core's surface, not unlike how The Threat is constantly laughing. Likewise, it has disastrous effects, this time scaled to the stage it's on.
- In Nintendo & Fantendo Play: Dodgeball, it uses the colors of the Neitherworld (purple, violet, cyan, and green) in addition to the existing red to suggest that the Neitherworld might have corrupted it at some point.
- It may be based off the Smart Bomb item, Sandbag, or Smash Ball item from the Super Smash Bros. series.
