  • An entity called The Darkness appears in the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion for Hearthstone. Due to its connection to snuffing out candles, The Darkness may be intended to be the same creature as the Devouring Darkness.
  • Uul'gyneth, who has the title of The Darkness, has the same role to the Highmountain tauren that the Devouring Darkness has to the Bluewax kobolds. They may or may not be related.
