Corrupturas are creatures that can control any being, simply by making contact with their forehead.
Normally, Corrupturas are created within and spat at an opponent by Vladats.
Corrupturas are diamond shaped with one eye, little horns, and bat-like wings.
When spat out by a Vladat, a Corruptura affixes itself on the forehead of a being, thus giving the Vladat control over that being. The victim is still conscious and aware of their actions, but have no control over their physical body. Basically, the victim becomes an unwilling puppet.

If a target is intangible, (such as Ectonurites), the Corruptura will pass straight through them, but they can still control an Ectonurite if it is hit while tangible.
Corrupturas are quite fragile, as Dr. Viktor easily crushed one.
Corrupturas must affix to the forehead in order for the Vladat to properly control the being.
Corrupturas can miss the target or the target can dodge the Corruptura.
If the Vladat is exposed to enough light, their Corrupturas will break, thus freeing the victims.

Their name is based on the word "corrupt", and "chiroptera", the order containing bats.
- The way that Corrupturas control other beings through attaching to their faces makes them similar to the Krana from the Bionicle series.
- Corrupturas are also highly reminiscent of Starro the Conqueror's starfish spores (from the Justice League comics and the Batman: The Brave and The Bold cartoon) in form and function, right down to the single eye dominating the victims' faces.
- Corrupturas are also highly reminiscent of the brain buds used by Dio Brando during Part 3 of the anime and manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, being launched from a vampire creature and being placed on someone's forehead to hypnotize them.
