For strategies on how to defeat the Wall of Flesh, see Guide:Wall of Flesh strategies.

The Wall of Flesh (WoF) is a Boss located in The Underworld. It is the final and most difficult Boss in Pre-Hardmode. Beating it will trigger Hardmode.

To defeat the Wall of Flesh, you must attack its eyes or its mouth. They all share the same life counter, so shooting at any of the three will deplete the boss' total health. Shooting at the eyes causes the most damage, as they have the lowest defense. Its other body parts are transparent to weapons, so attacking those will not deplete its health.

[edit] Summoning

The Wall of Flesh summoned.

The Wall of Flesh is summoned when a Guide Voodoo Doll is destroyed by lava in The Underworld while the Guide is alive. This kills the Guide and summons the boss. It can be done either by killing the Voodoo Demon that carries the Doll while it flies above a lava pool, or by picking up the dropped Doll and throwing it into the lava yourself. In the Mobile-phone-icon.pngmobile version, you simply tap the Doll in your hotbar.

If the Guide is not alive when the Doll is destroyed, the Wall of Flesh will not spawn, and the Doll will be wasted. If you have already summoned the Wall of Flesh recently, make sure the Guide has respawned before attempting to summon the Wall again.

[edit] Attacks

The Wall of Flesh is very large, occupying the entire screen vertically. Once spawned, it steadily sweeps across the map in a single direction, forcing the player to constantly move away for the duration of the fight while contending with the Underworld's usual hazards. The Wall moves faster as it gets more wounded. It must be killed before it reaches the end of the map, otherwise it will despawn and all living players will die (with the unique death message "<PLAYERNAME> was Licked").

Keep this behavior in mind when preparing an Arena, as the fight will take you many screens away (unless you are already using Hardmode gear). Any platform you build will need to be very long (ie. tile length reaching in the thousands). Water Walking Potion or Lava Waders are of tremendous use in mitigating the Underworld's many Lava pools.

  • The Wall has small mouths called The Hungry, each attached by a long vein, which move towards and damage players. As the Wall of Flesh's main body takes damage, these mouths deal more damage, and become more resistant to attacks. It is therefore advisable to take care of them first. When they've suffered enough damage, they will detach and attempt to fly into players.
  • The Wall has eyes that shoot lasers. As its health decreases, the lasers increase in damage, speed, and frequency.
  • The Wall spits Leeches out of its mouth, which chase players.
  • The Tongue grabs players that wind up behind The Wall or attempt to flee the battle and deals significant damage.

If you manage to flee the Underworld during the fight, you will die instantly, with the message “<PLAYER NAME> tried to escape”. This can be done using the Magic Mirror, which causes death after teleportation. This can be used as a last-ditch attempt to conserve items or money, as they will drop next to the spawn point.

[edit] Aftermath

When the Wall of Flesh is killed, it leaves its drops in a floating, fully enclosed box of Demonite Bricks. One of the drops is always the Pwnhammer, which becomes an essential tool. It is possible for the Pwnhammer or other dropped items to spawn outside the enclosed box and fall into the lava.

After defeating the Wall for the first time, your world will enter Hardmode, and will be filled with tougher enemies. This will also generate two diagonal stripes of The Hallow, and Corruption or Crimson, in a "V" or "X" pattern from the center of the Underworld all the way to the Surface (and higher, as Floating Islands in these paths will also be converted).

Note: See Hardmode for more extensive information.

[edit] Notes

  • Take care to avoid accidentally letting a Voodoo Demon drop its Doll into Lava, as this will also summon the Wall of Flesh.
  • On the mobile version, killing the Wall of Flesh doesn't start Hardmode, nor does it drop the Pwnhammer.
  • If you have problems getting the Guide to spawn, make sure there isn't an Event in progress. It must be daytime for the Guide to respawn.
  • Because of the way it works, the Wall has many spawning problems. Due to this, the start can be the most tricky part of the battle.
  • When spawning WoF, if using a long platform bridge, take note that when WoF spawns, it can face east or west.
  • Attempting to use the Magic Mirror item will kill the player fighting the WoF.

[edit] Tips

  • Certain consumables and accessories such as Gravitation Potion, Obsidian Skin Potion, Rocket Boots and Lava Waders can make traversing the underworld much easier.
  • Target the eyes rather than the mouth, since the eyes have 0 defense.
  • The Wall of Flesh's spawn location is determined by where the Voodoo Doll was thrown in relation to the center of the world. Thus, you can get the maximum space to fight the Wall by reaching the edge of the world and throwing the doll toward that edge.
    • This also determines the direction it will face. Keep in mind being on the left side of the world will make it sweep from left to right, and the right side will make it sweep right to left when making your WoF arena.
  • Preparing the Underworld for the battle is advised. Having a reasonably long straight path with no danger of getting stuck or falling can make the battle significantly easier, and can even block lasers from the lower eye if the path is at the proper height.
  • You may want to make a backup of your world in case one of the bugs appears or you afterwards discover that you weren't ready for Hardmode yet.
  • Multi-hit spells and weapons, such as Diamond Staff, Demon Scythe, and Night's Edge, help beat the Hungry quickly.
  • Inflicting multiple sections of the Wall of Flesh with the On Fire! or Cursed Inferno debuffs, using Bows or Repeaters and the appropriate Arrows, will deal damage much quicker.
  • Using Bombs, Dynamite, and Explosives to destroy the Underworld houses makes leveling the Underworld much easier.
  • If you start the battle in the same place multiple times, you can leave the treasure box intact to mark your record time.
  • If you're attempting to make a bridge and there's lava in the way, you can drop bombs in the lava to blow up the blocks underneath it and force it to go lower.
  • A Star Cannon with about 250 Fallen Stars can easily demolish the WoF.
  • The Wall of Flesh attempts to cover entire Underworld cavern space by moving its eyes up and down; it orients by existence/absence of Ash blocks 4-5 tiles above and beneath the eyes. That means making bridge out of ash will most probably keep the lower eye at constant height 4-5 blocks from the bridge.
  • Like said above, the Underworld has lots of fire-based obstacles, (example:Hellstone and Lava) so having an Obsidian Skull or Obsidian Shield is useful in traveling in the Underworld.
  • A Water Bolt combined with a Mana Flower can kill the WoF quickly.
  • If you have them, Beenades can help immensely in killing the hungry early on in the fight. They can also be used to help kill the Wall of Flesh quickly, since the bees are very powerful in large groups.

[edit] Bugs

Wall of Flesh somehow spawned Hardmode ores upon dying.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes the Wall of Flesh fails to spawn properly. This can range from spawning on the wrong side of the world, serious glitches involving The Tongue, spawning with parts missing, and (most commonly) simply failing to spawn.
Bug.png Bug : After killing the Wall of Flesh, there is a very rare chance that Hardmode will fail to generate. (The spawning of the Witch Doctor may be connected with this bug somehow.)
Bug.png Bug : If you manage to kill 2 pieces or more of it at once, you will be rewarded with 2 kills and 2 sets of drops.
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png On Xbox, the Wall of Flesh will sometimes be visible only to the host of the game but other players can still be damaged and damage it.
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png On Xbox, the Wall of Flesh will often spawn backwards.
Bug.png Bug : If you summon the Wall of Flesh too high, it will proceed as normal but keep elevating until it reaches the sky limit.
Bug.png Bug : Killing the Wall of Flesh for the first time may spawn some hardmode ores without breaking any demon altars (causes unknown). In addition, other ores may spawn randomly at any time after triggering hardmode (after a few minutes). It is unknown whether corruption blocks spawned as well, but they most likely did, as wraiths spawned after the message.
Bug.png Bug : When summoning the Wall of Flesh you may sometimes hear the roar sounded in a rapid manner and stopping after a few seconds. The wall part is removed while the eyes and mouth are still present. This may cause lag which will persist even if it is defeated.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes when you kill the wall of flesh, the text "The spirits of light and dark have been released" will not show up even though hardmode has indeed started.
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png When defeated in the console version, it may spawn the room without any loot or gold. This was experienced in multiplayer using PS3/Vita.
Bug.png Bug : If you are killed by the Wall of Flesh and come back down, sometimes it may only have a mouth and be visible to only one player. Shortly after seeing it you will randomly die. (not tested in single player)
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes, if you have a world with Crimson, killing the Wall of Flesh will spawn Corruption biomes, rather than more Crimson.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes if you attempt to kill the Wall of Flesh and die, then go back down and throw another Voodoo Doll into the lava, even if the Guide has respawned, the Wall won't spawn again until you exit the world then try again, and even then it sometimes does not work. This may be caused by simply not waiting long enough for the Wall to despawn
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes, when you throw the Voodoo Doll into lava, the Wall of Flesh won't spawn even though the chat says <YOUR GUIDE'S NAME> was slain. When you come back to the surface, the Guide will still be present and still functioning fine, but no home is set. The Guide's home is also unable to be set. This can be fixed by re-entering the world. (Only discovered in Multiplayer Host and Play)
Bug.png Bug : Console only.png When spawned on Xbox, you may sometimes die immediately after throwing the Guide Voodoo Doll into lava.
Bug.png Bug : Pc only.png Sometimes after you have died to the Wall of Flesh and respawned, when you return to the underworld, you will still have the Horrified debuff, but only at the center of the map. You will also be unable to spawn the Wall of Flesh again even if the Guide has already respawned. (Can be fixed by closing the Terraria window and reloading the game; simply relogging will not fix the issue.)
Bug.png Bug : Pc only.png Sometimes the WoF will spawn with all body parts (mouth,eye,hungry) missing. And ends up with just the body and nothing to defend itself. Sometimes dubbed "The Tongue" after the debuff.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes, defeating the WoF may NOT spawn a Hallowed Biome. (Bug found on PC, but is unconfirmed.)
