"The one becomes the many: The first multi-cellular organism emerges." ― Unlocking Sponge in the gampelay
Sponges Porifera Parazoa
The world's first multi-cellular organism, these stationary filter feeders are a product of multiple eukaryotic cells coming together.
The Sponge resembles three pink tube sponges, very likely demosponges. These sponges could possibly represent the stovepipe sponge, the giant barrel sponge, or possibly other pink species of sponges.

- In the game, Coral is an upgrade for sponges, however, in real life, they are classified as cnidarians rather than sponges, relatives of the Jellyfish.
