The Mechanical Worm is a Hardmode item used to summon The Destroyer, the Hardmode version of the Eater of Worlds. It can only be used during night time. Using another Mechanical Worm while The Destroyer is already summoned will result in the Mechanical Worm not being consumed, and a second Destroyer will not appear.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Unlike Worm Food, a Mechanical Worm can be used outside of the Corruption. However, it requires night time for usage, whereas the Worm Food can be used regardless of time.
- The Mechanical Worm can be brought to pre-Hardmode worlds and will successfully summon The Destroyer there.
- As with several items, the Mechanical Worm has four crafting recipes due to two items in the recipe having alternates.
