Creepers are eyeball-like enemies that are spawned in groups of 20 to 30 as part of the Brain of Cthulhu boss fight. They orbit the Brain of Cthulhu during the first phase, following the boss even as it teleports, acting as a shield of sorts. Once all Creepers are defeated, the Brain of Cthulhu continues the fight in its second phase, and the Creepers never appear again during the battle. They are immune to the Confused debuff and drop Hearts only when the player isn't at maximum health (this doesn't affect other drops). In extremely rare cases, creepers may not appear at all, making the Brain of Cthulhu invulnerable.

In Expert Mode, Creepers can inflict Confused, Poison, Bleeding, Darkness, Silenced, Broken Armor, and Weak debuffs.
