|Tooltip||Summons Skeletron Prime|
|Internal Item ID: 557|
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.
- The Mechanical Skull's texture is based off of the Skull Lantern furniture item.
- Like the Mechanical Worm, it looks like a wind-up toy.
- 1.2.1: Drop chance reduced from 1 in 1000 (0.10%) to 1 in 2500 (0.04%).
- 1.2: Now a Hardmode drop. Recipe changed.
- 1.1: Introduced.
