The Desert Spirit is a Hardmode enemy that can be found in Corrupted or Crimson Underground Desert biomes. Purple versions of Desert Spirits are found in Corrupt Underground Deserts while an orange version is found in Crimson Underground Deserts.

Desert Spirits have a unique attack and attack pattern compared to most enemies. Upon appearing near a player, they will cast a single colored projectile that appears near the player and slowly gains velocity and attempts to home in on the nearest player. Though it passes through blocks, it will explode after traveling a certain distance. If the Desert Spirit is not attacked or killed within a certain time frame, it will cast five more of these projectiles in rapid succession. After this, the spirit will teleport to a different location and repeat the process. It should be noted that the projectiles themselves do not deal any damage, but their explosions do.
