Regenesis In The Game

Sparks are certain allies to your characters that provide buffs upon use in battle. However, you do consume a turn when you use these sparks. Some sparks provide elemental buffs to your weapons, while others affect your mobility and overall health.

For more information on Sparks, consider reading our Mario Rabbids Best Sparks guide that entails the best sparks which you can use in the game. Undoubtedly, Regenesis is one of the best Sparks in the game and is worth the grind that you have to do for the Hide N’ Squeak side quest.

Regenesis allows your character to heal for two turns, and that healing is equal to 20% of your character’s total health. This is very useful, especially in the later areas of the game where enemies start dealing massive amounts of damage. Additionally, Regenesis comes in handy when you’ve got no healer on the team.


Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope is a great sequel and a really good tactical strategy game. It is additionally a crossover game where you play with both the iconic Nintendo Characters and the Rabbid versions of these characters. There is a lot of content in the game, and it doesn’t get boring playing through everything since the gameplay loop is addicting.
