The Sharkron is a Hardmode enemy fired by Duke Fishron's Sharknado and Cthulhunado attacks. They will first spawn from within the Sharknado or Cthulhunado, staying inside it for some time before being launched directly at the player. They travel in an arc, descending at a slower speed after reaching maximum height. They are killed instantly upon impact with blocks.

Despite being shark-related, Sharkrons do not move faster in water.

  • Due to their high defense rating, trying to kill Sharkrons with low-damage weapons (less than 50 damage per hit) can prove difficult, as the attacks will be reduced to 1 damage, or 2 on critical hits.
  • Homing weapons may target Sharkrons instead of Duke Fishron, which is usually undesirable.


  • According to the Bestiary, they are the offspring of Duke Fishron himself, despite having barely any of the same physical features.
  • The Cthulhunado may be a reference to Cthulhu being “The father of all sharks.”
  • Their name is a combination of Shark, and the suffix -ron, a pattern shared by several bosses, enemies, and items, including Skeletron, Duke Fishron, the Pigron, Fishotron and Skeletron Prime.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Sharkron: "Duke Fishron's nature as a form of chimera causes his offspring to emerge more shark-like, which he uses as minions in battle."
