The Vortexian is a Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist enemy spawned by the Vortex Pillar during the Lunar Events. Upon death, a portal is summoned that shoots lightning bolts similar to one of the attacks of the Lunatic Cultist. They are powerful in packs, and can potentially start an overwhelming lightning chain reaction if not dealt with properly.


  • The Vortexian, Selenian, Predictor and Stargazer all share very similar sprites.
  • They seem to resemble the Moon Lord with legs but without the eyes or the spine. The teardrop design on its chest, combined with the exposed brain further supports this.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Vortexian: "The cosmic energy surging through these warriors builds up until their untimely demise, resulting in an explosion of lightning."


  • Desktop Name of its banner changed from "Vortex Soldier Banner" to "Vortexian Banner".
