The Scorn Eater is a post-Moon Lord enemy that spawns in the Hallow and Underworld biomes. It jumps towards the player at a high speed, then stands still and pants for a moment before jumping again. Its high contact damage and velocity, along with its large size, make it a dangerous enemy.


  • The Scorn Eater is incapable of moving significant vertical distances; to make up for this, it can pass through blocks while dashing.
  • In the Get fixed boi seed, Scorn Eaters no longer have a jump sound.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Scorn Eater: "For one to be weak of will does not inherently mean they are weak of body. Within these powerful individuals does a powerful fire burn, and She is all too willing to fan the flames. All one need give in return for Her gracious blessing is their free will, and they shall be gifted Her enlightenment."
