The Cryon is a Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Snow biome. It jumps and charges towards the player in an attempt to deal damage. It will always inflict the Frostburn and Chilled debuff onto the player if they are hit. It has a 100% chance to drop an Essence of Eleum.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Cryon: "Archmage Permafrost went through great pains to not take part in combat himself, instead molding cryons to act as his personal guardians. Noticing the spread of godly essence just as many other creatures have, they have come out of stasis to combat any signs of it so that they may defend their master."
