We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Frankenstein is a Hardmode enemy that spawns only during a Solar Eclipse, during which they are as common as zombies. Hitting much harder, having more life and walking faster, they can be considered "super-zombies".

On the Console only.png Console versions and Mobile only.pngMobile versions, they can drop the Broken Hero Sword, which is a crafting material necessary for crafting the Terra Blade.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Frankenstein is a reference to the namesake 1931 film, as the theme of Solar Eclipse enemies is classic horror film icons.[1] Terraria propagates the common misconception that Frankenstein is the name of the monster, rather than the doctor who created it.
