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.

The Psycho is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that spawns during the Solar Eclipse event. The Psycho will initially spawn in an invisible, stealthed state, waiting for the player to damage it or draw near before it fully reveals itself and starts attacking. An attack made by the Psycho while in stealth will deal significantly more damage than an ordinary hit, similar to the function of the Psycho Knife it drops.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Psycho is a reference to Michael Myers from the 1978 film Halloween[1], though the sprite more closely resembles Jason Voorhees from the Friday The 13th series.
  • For some reason, despite following the Fighter AI, the Psycho cannot open doors, nor does it interact with them.
