Dark Fruit is first introduced later on in chapter 2 of the game, on the planet Juraika. The villagers are being poisoned and killed by this mysterious fruit. It is later figured out to be spores of the Individer. The Dark Fruit has capabilities to transform enemies into monsters, like the Mud Whooper shown above.
If you return to the village after defeating the Individer, one villager will say that the villagers are starting to avoid the fruit.
- The Dark Fruit causes skin disease, as well as affecting the mind of the person who ingested the fruit, as seen by the Juraiken villager who was aimlessly walking around and moaning, and soon after throwing up and falling down, revealing purple spores on his backside.
