In the Warhammer 40,000 setting, Corruption is a Hellforged Artefact of Nurgle.
This fabled weapon is the literal manifestation of corruption in its purest form. The merest scratch from its plague-ridden edge is enough to lay low the hardiest foe and can effortlessly overcome even the superhuman resilience of a Space Marine.
