Corrodium is a purple, glowing crystal with mutagenic properties, which was introduced in Under Wraps. The Mummy was searching for it in different places, including Dairyville, as part of Zs'Skayr's plan to darken the Earth so it was easier to take over.


Corrodium is a crystalline-like substance and glows a purplish color.


Corrodium is a mineral of great potential energy, similar to coal or uranium of Earth at a larger scale, and for a time was mined throughout the galaxy as an efficient, large power supply. However, like uranium on Earth, Corrodium has severe side effects and is very unstable, so its use was largely ceased, except by the EctonuritesLoboans, Thep Khufans, Transylians, and those within their empire who were immune to the effects.

Thep Khufans are the only beings who can handle Corrodium without special protection.[pop-up 1][1]

Corrodium is not naturally found on Earth. The samples found in Under Wraps are speculated to have come to Earth as part of a meteor a few thousand years earlier.[2][3]

In Be Afraid of the Dark, the entire population of Earth was briefly mutated by Corrodium thanks to Zs'Skayr's plans of attempting to take it over.

Powers and Abilities

Corrodium can be used to generate ample supplies of energy, but will mutate many organisms.

Humans and other Earth-native species are particularly susceptible to mutation from the crystal, with their bodies being warped beyond recognition and their minds being corrupted to hostility at anything that moves. The mutagenic effects are temporary, though prolonged exposure to Corrodium would make the mutations permanent. The exposure to Corrodium can be negated with proper protection like level 12 Hazmat suits.

Result of Exposure


Its name is derived from corrode due to its corrosive radioactive nature.


  • Corrodium is largely found in the Anur System, especially on Anur Khufos.
  • The combination of Corrodium's power and danger make it extremely rare and valuable throughout the galaxy.[pop-up 2][1]
  • There were no plans to feature Corrodium in Omniverse, as the crew never considered doing another plotline involving the substance.[DJW 1]
