|AI Type||Demon Eye|
The Demon Eye is a flying enemy that appears at night when above ground. Its trajectory is changed when hit with a weapon that causes knockback. It has a slow turn rate, follows the player, and bounces off blocks.
It is recommended to use ranged weapons, such as the Wooden Bow, when dealing with Demon Eyes, as they spend much of their time out of reach. The best time to attack it is when it is turning, as a successful hit will knock it back and interrupt its flight pattern, allowing you to get in more shots before it reaches you.
Demon Eyes appear more often during a new moon.
If you do not have a ranged weapon or a broadsword or the like it is very difficult to kill them. The fact that they can attack from above can be difficult to cope with.
Demon Eyes attempt to fly straight towards the player. This allows for relatively easy escape by hiding behind a wall.
Due to the fact they cannot enter water, they cannot reach you if you are completely submerged. However, you can still hit them with your broadsword or any ranged weapon.
