The Nailhead is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy found only during the Solar Eclipse event. In addition to dealing high contact damage, the Nailhead fires eight nails in a symmetrical 45 degree spread when attacked. It has significantly more health than most other Solar Eclipse enemies, and has a high resistance to knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Even though the nails' damage are rather low, the contact damage is extreme, thus it's still risky to encounter at close range.
  • Despite having high health and dealing high damage, it moves slower than any other Solar Eclipse enemy, leaving it vulnerable to multiple attacks.
  • Even though the nails do rather low damage it's still best to attack Nailhead from a medium to long range, making it easier to dodge them.
