Manipulated through the hive mind of the Crimson, Creepers serve as the brain's eyes and orbit around it for defense in numbers.

— The Bestiary

This article is about the Brain of Cthulhu's minion. For the Halloween event costume, see Creeper set. For the spider enemies, see Wall Creeper and Jungle Creeper. For the pet summon, see Creeper Egg.

Creepers are eyeball-like enemies that are spawned along with the Brain of Cthulhu in groups of 20. They orbit the boss at high speed, following it wherever it teleports to, acting as a shield of sorts. Creepers do not respawn once they are killed. All Creepers must be destroyed first before the Brain of Cthulhu becomes vulnerable to attacks.

Creepers have a 1/2 (50%) chance to drop a Heart if the player is below full health.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Creeper's 1/2 chance to drop a Heart is six times higher than the regular 1/12 chance of most other enemies.
  • The Creeper resembles the Phantasmal Sphere attack of the Moon Lord and his True Eyes of Cthulhu.
  • Although Creepers inflict many debuffs in Expert mode, they do not drop items that prevent them, such as Armor Polish or Adhesive Bandage.
