Giant Flying Fox
“An oversized cousin of the bat found only in the Jungle, giant flying foxes hunt the night skies looking for prey.
— The Bestiary
The Giant Flying Fox is a Hardmode Exclusive enemy that spawns only in the surface of the Jungle at night, in addition to the common Jungle Bats and in place of the Derplings that spawn during the day. Giant Flying Foxes can deal significant damage to a player and without any knockback resistance, can push players down jungle caves. They prove a threat to early Hardmode characters.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In real life, a Flying Fox is any of several species in the family Pteropodidae, which are otherwise known as fruit bats. These are the largest bats in the world, found mainly in the tropical regions of Asia. Thus, it makes sense for this to be the largest in-game bat. The real-world versions are docile fruit eaters that are harmless to humans, but are serious agricultural pests. The fact that it drops Grapes might be inspired by this.
