Appearance Exterior

The Crystal Nest is a uncommon enemy found in the Aurelian Depths in Awakened Mode.


Crystal Nests are a seemingly sentient bundles of green and yellow crystals. They will always have multiple smaller crystals orbiting around them. They feature no limbs or appendages of any sort, only a single large eye.


Upon sighting the Submarine, the Crystal Nest will send forth multiple Crystal Boarders attempting to invade the Submarine. Each one entered will cause a hull breach. The Crystal Nest is unable to move very quickly, and will likely be outrun by the Submarine, limiting their threat.


  • Crystal Nests have a similar look and color palette to those of the Power Aliens, suggesting that they may have originated from the Power Dimension.
