The Blood Squid is a flying Hardmode enemy summoned by the Dreadnautilus during a Blood Moon. It resembles a regular Squid, but is larger, redder-colored, and has multiple eyes on its body, similar to the Drippler. The Dreadnautilus always summons Blood Squids in groups of three.

The Blood Squid attempts to close in on the player before firing a single red Blood Shot projectile at the player, similar to the Dreadnautilus's own Blood Shots, but with higher damage. Like the Dreadnautilus, it recoils after each shot. The shots are inaccurate, which means that its shots could miss even if the player is standing still.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Blood Squid: "Summoned in small groups by the Nautilus to aid their master in battle. Thick are the streams of blood squirted from their bodies."
  • This entry refers to the Dreadnautilus as just the Nautilus.
