The Giant Fungi Bulb is a Hardmode enemy found in Glowing Mushroom biomes both above and below the surface. They act similar to Man Eaters and Snatchers, but have a longer reach and launch Fungi Spores towards the player, dealing high damage. Fungi Spores fly towards their target, breaking upon contact with blocks, and glide downward in a serpentine pattern. They can be destroyed by one hit with any weapon or damage-inflicting tool.

Notes

  • Giant Fungi Bulbs and Fungi Bulbs are both immune to lava.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The bulb will not fire if it does not have an unobstructed, direct line of sight to the player.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Destroying the block a Giant Fungi Bulb is attached to will kill it instantly without dropping any loot.

Tips

  • If the bulb is covered by solid blocks, it will not fire any spores. This is good to keep in mind when the enemy is trying to attack from far away.
  • Although being small, spores deal more damage than the bulb, so players should be wary of them.

Trivia

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Giant Fungi Bulb: "When the glowing fungus is ready to spread, these bulbs will sprout to spread its spores to other locations and hosts."

History

  • Desktop 1.4.4:
