The Cloud Elemental is a rare Hardmode mini boss that can be found while it is raining in Space.


The Cloud Elemental slowly follows the player while choosing between three attacks at random:

  • Creates a ring of 5 tornadoes around the player, which linger for some time.
    • Below 50% HP, creates 8 tornadoes.
  • Summons 5 Angry NimbusAngry Nimbi to attack the player. No more than 10 may be alive at any point in time.
    • Below 50% HP, summons 6 Nimbi at a faster rate.
  • Teleports to a location near the target.

Below 50% HP, she will additionally gain the following attacks:

  • Summons a row of 7 Lightning CloudLightning Clouds on either side of her, which sequentially fire lightning bolts below them.
  • Quickly charges at the player four times.



  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Cloud Elemental: "Part of a solitary elemental that rarely appears aside from when her domain is at its strongest. Many attempts were made by what remained of Yharim’s forces to hunt down the elementals after Azafure fell. Only now that the war has passed do the weaker elementals dare return."
  • She resembles a valkyrie due to her armor with wing motifs, as well as being a female warrior relating to the sky.
  • She is referred to in the mod's files as "ThiccWaifu."
