Tooltip Summons Skeletron Prime

The Mechanical Skull is used to summon Skeletron Prime, a harder version of Skeletron. It can only be used during night time. Using another Mechanical Skull while Skeletron Prime is already spawned will result in instant death. It can also be used in a world without hardmode activated.

If you have not defeated Skeletron Prime yet and are already in hardmode, all enemies (minus statue-spawned monsters and meteor heads) have a 1 in 2500 chance of dropping this item.

Notes[edit]

Bug.png Bug : You can summon Skeletron Prime again after killing only his Prime Cannon, without having to kill his head. This is probably a typo in the game as Prime Cannon is 128 in NPC ID and Prime Head is 127.
Bug.png Bug : The Mechanical Skull will sometimes not summon Skeletron Prime.
  • The Mechanical Skull's texture is based off of the Skull Lantern furniture item.
  • Like the summoner for The Destroyer, it looks like a wind-up toy.
