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, making it risky to fight 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.
  • However, on Master mode, the nails are almost as deadly as making contact with Nailhead itself, making it crucial to deal damage at a distance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Nailhead: "An intelligent being who seeks out souls to steal, utilizing nails from his own body both as a weapon and as defensive measures."
