The Lihzahrd Power Cell is a boss-summoning item used at the Lihzahrd Altar, located in the final chamber of the Jungle Temple, in order to summon Golem. One Lihzahrd Power Cell is guaranteed to be found within each Lihzahrd Chest, and they additionally have a (Desktop, Console, Old-gen console and Mobile versions) 1/50 (2%) / (3DS version) 1/200 (0.5%) chance of dropping from Lihzahrds and Flying Snakes, both of which spawn exclusively within the Jungle Temple.

Lihzahrd Power Cells are utilized by using the Open / Activate button on a Lihzahrd Altar, which automatically consumes one Lihzahrd Power Cell from the player's inventory and spawns Golem immediately. Golem may only be summoned in worlds where Plantera has been defeated; otherwise, the summoning will fail, and a Lihzahrd Power Cell will not be consumed.

  • The Power Cell can be obtained in pre-Hardmode if a Lihzahrd Chest is near the Lihzahrd Door or is at the center of the bottom of the Jungle Temple.
    • Lihzahrds can also sometimes spawn in the entrance if it is long enough and can be farmed for Power Cells.
  • With extra Temple Keys and a Picksaw or higher, Power Cells can be farmed by generating new worlds and gathering the cells guaranteed to be in their Jungle Temples' Lihzahrd Chests, rather than having to kill Lihzahrds and Flying Snakes hoping for drops. Since Golem can only be summoned in a world where Plantera has been defeated, Power Cells gathered this way will need to be used in the original world, where it has been defeated. However, it is likely that players well versed with auto-farms would find building a small farm in a central location of the temple more efficient.
  • The Power Cell is the only item in the game whose midpoint is lower than that of the Copper Coin. Since its rarity is only Rarity level: 0, it will be destroyed by any lava deep enough to destroy Copper Coins.


  • Desktop 1.2.3: Summoning Golem will now properly only use one Power Cell.
  • Desktop Lihzahrd Altar should now spawn and use power cells properly.
