Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Armored Skeletons are the only source of Armor Polish before having defeated Plantera.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Armored Skeleton: "Remnants of a long lost expeditionary force, these stout warriors mindlessly patrol the caves in which they died."
