The Hell Armored Bones is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that spawn in the Dungeon after Plantera is defeated. Similar to Angry Bones, they come in multiple varieties and follow the Fighter AI. Hell Armored Bones are visible in darkness but do not actually emit light, except for a faint glow when immersed in water. They also inflict the On Fire! debuff for 10 / 20 / 25 seconds.

Hell Armored Bones spawn most often in areas of the Dungeon backed by tiled walls. They can also spawn in other areas, but with a significantly reduced chance.
