Hellbats are large Bats found only in The Underworld. They are pesky creatures that can kill characters who are using early game gear. Though they cannot fly underwater or through Lava, they take no damage from making contact with either.


Hellbat Unused Frame.png
Unused animation frame
  • Hellbats, as well as Jungle Bats, Cave Bats, and Spore Bats have an unused frame in the animation that seems to depict a Hellbat hanging upside down. This may mean that bats were originally planned to be able to hang on ceilings but was later decided against.
  • Its name and area of appearance are likely references to the saying "like a bat out of Hell."
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Hellbat: "What's worse than a rabid, fast-flying, and annoying flying rodent? One that is on fire, of course!"


  • Desktop Hellbats now correctly drop Magma Stones. Previously, Magma Stones were erroneously dropped by Giant Fungi Bulbs.
  • Desktop 1.0.6: Life reduced from 55 to 46, Damage increased from 30 to 35
