From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Nutcracker is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that appears during the Frost Moon event. There are two Nutcracker variants, each with slightly differing damage and defense. The first variant will transform into the more powerful second variant when it is at or below 55% health (990 / 1485 / 2227).[1]

Defeating a Nutcracker adds 4 points (8 points) during the Frost Moon.[2]
