The Butcher is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that only spawns during the Solar Eclipse event. It slowly builds up speed over time, similarly to an Antlion Charger. It appears to wield a chainsaw that will deal heavy damage to players on contact.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite it being able to clearly wield and drop a Butcher's Chainsaw, the one it carries does not emit sparks upon contact with the player.
  • Unlike most other enemies, Butchers can open doors with one hit.
  • Butchers can damage players through one-tile-thick walls.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • One should exercise extreme caution when fighting Butchers at close range, as they maneuver very fast, and can kill the player quickly. Using ranged weapons is recommended.
