Black magic is an evil form of magic.


Magic appears as a small, sparkling ball of black energy. In most games, it uses a recolored version of magic’s sprite and/or particle effect.

From Scribblenauts Unlimited onward, it has no visible sprite, but it generates a swirling magic particle effect whenever it moves. This makes it appear as a swirling ball of magic while in motion, but the lack of a sprite can still be seen when it is selected or summoned by the player.


In Scribblenauts, black magic can be summoned through the notebook by normal means.

In Scribblenauts Unlimited, black magic can only be summoned by entering "@black magic" via the '@' method.

The Necronomicon fires black magic projectiles. Outside of Scribblenauts and Scribblenauts Unlimited, this is the only way to spawn black magic.


Scribblenauts - Scribblenauts Unlimited

Black magic disappears when it makes contact with a surface. If it makes contact with a living object, said living object is turned into a skeleton warrior.

Scribblenauts Unmasked

In Scribblenauts Unmasked, this object does not transform the target, instead dealing damage and spawning a skeleton warrior near the target.
