The Universal Pylon is a Hardmode, post-Moon Lord pylon obtained by completing 100% of the Bestiary, at which point it will be sold by the Zoologist for 1 PC.

It can be placed anywhere, and used in any biome. Unlike other pylon variants, it does not require a nearby NPC to function. Only one Universal Pylon can be placed in a world.


  • The Universal Pylon can be used as a kind of reversible Recall Potion, allowing players to place the Universal Pylon, teleport to their base, and then teleport back to the Universal Pylon from a pylon in their base. This functions much like a reusable Potion of Return.
  • Notable places that do not have their own pylons include the Dungeon, Jungle Temple, and Space.
    • While the Underworld does not have its own pylon, the Demon Conch is available to teleport to there from anywhere. Additionally, a Cavern Pylon will function in the Underworld.


  • The tooltip is a reference to the 1998 military science fiction real-time strategy game StarCraft.[1]
