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.

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, 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.
