Not to be confused with the consumable weapon Spiky Ball.

The Spike Ball is an indestructible enemy found in the Dungeon that swings around in a circle from a central pivot point (which also cannot be destroyed), and deals damage to the player on contact. Separate Spike Balls can have differing chain lengths. They spawn and despawn off-screen like any other enemy — if you leave a room and return later, it will have a different configuration of Spike Balls. They only appear in dungeon areas with a Brick Wall.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If you destroy the brick where the Spike Ball is attached, it will continue to swing in mid air, unlike the Snatcher, Dragon Snatcher, and Man Eater.
  • The chain that swings the Spike Ball bounces up and down as it swings.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Placing a torch at the place where a Spike Ball swings through the floor or walls will allow players to keep track of its path.
  • Spike Balls only spawn in areas marked by the Marching Bones Banner.
  • The Mechanic (after rescue) and other NPCs will attack Spike Balls.
  • Pumpkins from The Horseman's Blade will follow Spike Balls.
  • Piranha from the Piranha gun can attach to the Spike Balls, however dealing zero damage.
  • The Leaf Crystal that hovers above the player when wearing Chlorophyte armor fires at Spike Balls.
