The entrance to The Void can be revealed by using a Vial of Pure Darkness in the Lost Halls boss room, close to the purple streaks, once the Marble Colossus is defeated. The vial can be obtained from Malus, the boss of the Cultist Hideout.
This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Travel of the Decade‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad God’ fame bonuses.
|The Realm Eye says:|
I am not able to peer into the realm of the void myself, but it is my understanding that the dimension is little more than a barren expanse of Corruption.
When Skuld distributes the spirits of the dead, the Void Entity claims the most powerful souls and pulls them into the void.
It is an unfortunate reality that many of the heroes that came before you, including your own ancestors, have likely become his pawns after falling in battle.
The Void is initially a massive, circular arena consisting of rough purple floor tiles in an endless sea of Corruption. Streaks of Corruption can be found in the floor tiles, although these do not damage players. During the battle against the Void Entity, the arena will gradually shrink in diameter. At certain phases, the arena will be divided into two, and later into four equally-sized sectors.
Note that Corruption located farther away from the main arena will do more damage compared to that located closer to the arena.
|The End||Defeat the Void Entity in the Void.|
See the relevant section for the Void Entity.
The Void was released in Patch X.16.0 (Aug 2017), along with the rest of the Lost Halls. The Void originally had brown floor tiles and closely resembled the aesthetics of the original Forgotten Sentinel fight in The Shatters (Original).
In Patch X.26.0.0 (May 2018), the entirety of the Lost Halls, including The Void, received major revisions.
The Void Entity’s lines “Ah, heroes, blessed souls…I shall destroy you with the power of darkness!” and “As your existence fades, remember that it is an honor to have it ended at my hands!” are both references dialogue lines by some bosses in Super Paper Mario.
The Void Entity’s dying phrases were said to have been inspired by the opening lines of the Negativitron from LittleBigPlanet 2.
The Void has a portal sprite in the game files. However, this is not actually used for the portal that spawns upon using a Vial of Pure Darkness. The portal is designated by a swirl of purple particles but does not have an actual portal sprite. However, the portal sprite is used when viewing the dungeon completion statistics for a character.
Note: this sprite is also used for a consumable item for testing that directly opens a portal to The Void. There also exists a item that opens a portal directly to the Cult, and uses the regular sprite of a unlocked Cult Portal.
