The Dark Pyramid was the headquarters of the Tyrant, a massive pyramid that dwarfs the Really Big Pyramid of Oompapus III and the Supercolossal Pyramid of Mewkus the Magnificent, Lord High Dribbler of the Slimethings of Squelch. It is so large that its tip is in space. The planet it squats on is carefully hidden in clouds of interstellar dust, and while it was occupied by the Tyrant anyone who found it would wish they hadn't after running into the Detect-O-Matic alarm systems, FOEs patrol vessels, and self-propelling antiship mines.

The pyramid was designed to be impregnable to all known forms of attack. A nuclear warhead won't even dent it. A direct impact from an asteroid would be catastrophic, but only for the asteroid. The most powerful energy weapons might reduce the planet beneath to cinders, but the pyramid itself would remain unscathed.
