The Drakanian is a Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist ground-based enemy which spawns in areas containing a Solar Pillar from the Lunar Events. It can originally spawn riding a Drakomire, forming a Drakomire Rider, and each can be separately killed. Killing the Drakomire will still cause the Drakanian to fully heal and attack the player.
- The Drakanian's weapon appears to resemble the Daybreak with the Solar Eruption's tip. Despite this, the Drakanian does not use it like the Daybreak normally functions, by clearly wielding it instead of throwing it.
- The Bestiary entry for the Drakanian: "These highly aggressive celestial soldiers carry a large, fiery spear that can melt nearly anything it penetrates."
