Crimson Hearts are floating, pulsing red hearts found deep in the branches of the Crimson. A world with Crimson features several Crimson Hearts, and destroying some of them is often a crucial step in game advancement. This can be done using any Hammer, or Bombs/Dynamite. Crimson Hearts release a fair amount of their own flickering light, similar to Demon Altars, which helps players spot them underground.

Crimson Hearts are usually located at the ends of the branches that split from the main circular room of a Crimson area, kept inside small rooms of Crimstone Blocks. In order to reach them the player may use explosives, a Nightmare Pickaxe (or better, this includes the Deathbringer Pickaxe), or Purification Powder.

Crimson Hearts are the Crimson-equivalent of the Corruption's Shadow Orbs. Like Shadow Orbs, the third one destroyed will summon a boss, the Brain of Cthulhu.

[edit] Messages

The following messages appear upon destruction of Crimson Hearts:

  • First Heart: "A horrible chill runs down your spine..."
  • Second Heart: "Screams echo around you..."
  • Third Heart: "Brain of Cthulhu has awoken!"

[edit] Notes

  • Destroying Crimson Hearts will prompt a Meteorite to land.
  • Goblin Armies will begin to appear periodically after a Crimson Heart has been smashed.
Bug : Sometimes when only one Crimson Heart has destroyed Brain Of Cthulhu can be awoken.
Bug : Sometimes, when the Brain of Cthulhu is already awoken, breaking another Crimson Heart will drop a Shadow Orb item. When this happens, the breaking sound when a Shadow Orb is broken can be heard.
Bug : Sometimes, a Crimson Heart and a Shadow orb will spawn combined making a hybrid like item.
Bug : When you hover over a Crimson Heart on your minimap, it will be named as a Shadow Orb.
Bug : On the Console version, if you destroy 3 Crimson hearts it summons the Eater of worlds instead.
Bug : On the Console version, when you break a Crimson heart it drops 2 items and says 2 sentences.
Bug : Sometimes when only one Crimson Heart has destroyed Eater of Worlds can be awoken.
