The Darkness

Description

The Darkness is an amazing custom mob battle created by AutismFather that can only be found on Autcraft. There have been two versions, with the most current being The Darkness 2.0.
 

What is The Darkness
The Darkness is an automated Wither fight centered around a Minecraft fox and over 300 command blocks. The fox randomly runs around the arena while the command blocks set off a chain of events such as spawning custom mobs and mob bosses around itself, making spooky sounds, changing the arena walls, floor and roof, creating particles and potion effects on the players, and more. When all of the bosses are defeated, The Darkness (the fox) collapses until it returns again.
