Not to be confused with Moth.

Mothron is a powerful flying Enemy that spawns during the Solar Eclipse event and passes through Blocks. It can only spawn after all Mechanical Bosses have been defeated. Mothron attacks by lunging at the player. Occasionally it lands on blocks to lay several Mothron Eggs that will spawn Baby Mothrons if they are not destroyed in time, much like Lepus.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Broken Hero Sword and The Eye of Cthulhu item drops are mutually exclusive, i.e. there is 25% chance for either item and 50% chance for none of them.
  • Be careful not to let Mothron lay its eggs on a single block in the air as sometimes it can despawn without dropping anything

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The basic steps:
  • If you are lucky enough to have one from a previous Solar Eclipse or from the current one, the Death Sickle is very effective against Mothron, constantly hitting it and keeping it at bay for a precious few seconds.
  • Mothron is most vulnerable when it's laying its eggs.
  • The best thing to do is to kill the eggs before they hatch, as the Baby Mothrons can be very annoying to kill. It is also useless to farm them, as they drop no loot.
  • Another strategy is jumping down a Hellavator and shooting up, however the effectiveness of this can vary greatly class-to-class and strategy-to-strategy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mothron is a reference to Mothra from the namesake 1961 movie.[1] The subtle change in its name follows the trend of Terraria enemies' and bosses' names ending with the suffix -ron, such as Skeletron, Duke Fishron, and Pigron.
  • If the Eclipse finishes, or all players die, Mothron floats up to the sky and despawns, similar to the Martian Saucer and Pumpkin/Frost Moon Event Bosses. In addition, it becomes invincible after the end of the Eclipse.
