Spirits of Dread was a Spirit Board event focused on spirits from Metroid Dread. It ran from 6 a.m. on October 8, 2021 to 6 a.m. on October 13 (UTC). During the event, defeating spirits on the Spirit Board which were part of the event awarded more SP than usual.

The spirits for this event were exclusive to it at the time. After January 11, 2022, these spirits became available in the Shop and on the Spirit Board like most other spirits. Additionally, the version 13.0.1 update allowed the Samus (Metroid Dread) and E.M.M.I. spirits to be obtained prior to them becoming universally available by scanning their respective amiibo.

  • This is the first Spirit Board event based on a specific game since Second Anniversary of OCTOPATH TRAVELER to have a unique English title, although this only applies to the North American name. Although the Japanese, Chinese, and Korean titles have the same title as the game, there are phrases added as well, similar to the spirit board events based on specific games starting with Arsenals at the Ready! DAEMON X MACHINA.
  • This was the last new spirit board event with new spirits added before the recycling of previous events.
