The Basilisk is a Hardmode enemy found in the Underground Desert Biome. They move quickly and highly resist Knockback, making them a very formidable enemy to fight against. They have a chance of dropping Sturdy Fossils and a rare chance to drop the Ancient Horn, which summons a mount version of the Basilisk.

The Basilisk is essentially a much stronger version of the Antlion Charger.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When fighting Basilisks, fighting them from above or with weapons that deal high knockback is a good idea.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In mythology, Basilisks are often depicted as snake-like creatures that can kill with their gaze or poisonous breath.
