Frankenstein is a Hardmode enemy that only spawn during a Solar Eclipse. During which, they are as common as Zombies are at night. However, they hit much harder, have more life, and walk faster.

On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, they can drop the Broken Hero Sword, which is a Crafting material necessary for crafting the Terra Blade.

Trivia

  • Frankenstein is a reference to the 1931 science fiction horror film Frankenstein. This follows the theme of Solar Eclipse Enemies as classic horror film icons.[1] Like most pop culture references, Re-Logic propagates the common misconception that Frankenstein is the name of the monster, whereas, in reality, it is the name of the scientist who created the unnamed monster, Victor Frankenstein.
  • On the Old-gen console version, Frankenstein will have the remains of a Zombie when killed rather than itself.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Frankenstein: "Built from parts of deceased Terrarians, this stout monster resulted from a crazy man's desire to create life with his own hands."
