Not to be confused with the Eye of Cthulhu, the boss, or the True Eye of Cthulhu, the enemy summoned by the Moon Lord.

The Eye of Cthulhu is a Hardmode, post-Plantera yoyo which has a 1/3 (33.33%) / 5/9 (55.56%) chance to drop from Mothron during a Solar Eclipse. It is one of the few yoyos that can stay in the air indefinitely, and it has a reach of 22.5 tiles. It is currently the second strongest yoyo in the game, only beaten by the Terrarian.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.
