Minion menaceweed var1

A Menace Weed from Onslaught.

Menace Weeds are Bio Minions encountered on Verdanth. While dormant, they rest with only their head above the ground. When the player comes near, they jump out and attack with rapid thorn bursts. If other Darkspore are nearby, they channel a healing aura that will continuously heal the other Darkspore.


Mobile, tripedal Menace Weeds are remarkable plants. To their allies, they are bringers of healing, beautiful for their "crown" of bright leaves which rotates whenever they offer regeneration. But following mutation by the Darkspore, and when separate from any other members of their species, the weeds uproot themselves to advance against, and fire thorns at, any predators or prey in range.


  • Onslaught Variant: Menace Weed
  • Invasion Variant: Jackal Weed
  • Apocalypse Variant: Crisis Weed

Menace Weeds are annoying enemies, even alone they still pose quite a threat. Their rapid thorn burst attacks cause major damage if all the thorns hit you. They are also supportive Darkspore as well, they remain idle when other Darkspore are nearby and channel their healing abilities, this will continuously heal other Darkspore, making it harder to land kills.

To deal effectively with the Menace Weeds, try to kill them first or weaken them with area effect attacks such as Sage's Strangling Briars. Goliath's Arc Weld is also a good choice when there are numerous Weeds and other Darkspore. Avoid getting close to Menace Weeds because the closer you are the more damage you will take.


  • Menace Weeds do not have any feet, just limbs to look like clawed feet.
  • Their attacks are similar to that of the Fragbot Mech.
  • They also have the "Saginaughty" mouth from Spore.
