Maxwell defeated (black hole)

This animated screenshot shows the black hole, swallows Maxwell.

A black hole is an incredibly dense object that has gravity so strong, that it draws in everything near it and completely disintegrates them. If you are too close, it will kill you too, even in Free play mode. In Super Scribblenauts, it simply destroys the level.

In Scribblenauts Unlimited, it is a black dot then when placed, generates a black hole animation that sucks in and destroys all nearby things except Maxwell.


  • Can be probably used to destroy enemies.
  • Sucks in anything that can harm you.
  • If used correctly, you can make the Starite come to you or you float to the Starite.
  • Hold Bread and click a cat. Press the choice "use". The cat will transform into a black hole. This is a reference to a popular paradox in popular culture that combines the beliefs that toast always lands buttered-side down, while cats land on their feet. The paradox comes as a result of attatching the toast buttered side up to the cat's back, resulting in a dilemma between which side would logically land down, hence why reality collapses.
  • In Scribblenauts Unlimited, an object being drawn towards the black hole will not suck it if there is another larger object blocking the centre of the black hole. It also does not result in the level necessarily being destroyed, although, given the capacity for the destruction it has throughout all of the games, it still happens often.
