The Giant Bat is a Hardmode bat enemy that spawns in the Cavern layer. It can inflict the Confused debuff for 5 / 10 / 12.5 seconds, causing the game controls to reverse. It also has a 1/10 (10%) chance to inflict the Feral Bite debuff in Expert Mode(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) for 30–90 seconds. It appears much bigger than a normal Cave Bat.


  • Once a world enters Hardmode, Giant Bats will almost entirely replace the once common Cave Bat.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Giant Bat: "The oversized cousins of Cave Bats, these bats are more dangerous and can confuse their enemies with their bite."
