Not to be confused with Mothron, the Solar Eclipse mini-boss.

The Moth is a rare Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Underground Jungle. They fly around very slowly, and upon seeing the player, will direct their attention towards them and attempt to deal damage to them. Upon killing the Moth, there is a chance that it will drop Butterfly Dust, which is solely used in the creation of Butterfly Wings. They are immune to the Poisoned, Venom and Confused debuffs.

It is one of the few enemies that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Despite having relatively high HP, the Moth can easily be killed with any Hardmode weapons, making the Butterfly Wings easily obtainable. In addition, the Butterfly Wings go further than the Angel or Demon Wings, and also emit light.
