Crimera (animated).gifOld-gen console version and Nintendo 3DS version

Crimera are common enemies found in the The Crimson. They are the Crimson counterpart to the Corruption's Eater of Souls, and behave in the same manner, flying toward the player and circling it at a distance before periodically rushing in.

Similar to Eater of Souls, Crimera can appear in three size variants: Little Crimera, Crimera, and Big Crimera, each with corresponding health, damage, and defense.
