The Death Whistle is a craftable Hardmode boss-summoning item that is used to summon the Ravager. It can only be used on the surface.




  • A death whistle was an instrument historically used by the Aztecs.
    • The sound of the Death Whistle being used is an unused roar in the vanilla Terraria files. It was chosen due to its resemblance to the sound of a real scaled-up death whistle.
      • The sound is also played when the Ravager spawns in Boss Rush.
