- Not to be confused with 蛾.
蛾怪 is a powerful flying 敌怪 that spawns during the 日食 event and passes through 物块s. It can only spawn after all 机械 Boss have been defeated. Mothron attacks by lunging at the player. Occasionally it lands on blocks to lay several Mothron Eggs that will spawn Baby Mothrons if they are not destroyed in time, much like 天兔.
- 断裂英雄剑和克苏鲁之眼的掉落是相互排斥的, 有 25% 几率掉落两样中的一样也有 50% 的几率两样都不掉.
- 枪和弓还有法杖很不错’. 食人鱼枪发射的小食人鱼会一直攻击它打到的敌人，同时又会锁定目标（在正常模式下20-25秒就会被击败，在专家模式40-45秒就会被击败）. 同样好的选择是 巨兽鲨或 邪恶三叉戟 (不计算它的高法力值消耗) , Also 水晶蛇 is a viable choice due to the splash projectiles, or for melee users, any 断裂英雄剑 made weapon (泰拉刃, 原版断钢剑, 原版永夜刃), 悠悠球 such as 克拉肯球 or 克苏鲁之眼.
- Mothron is most vulnerable when it's laying its eggs.
- Mothron is a reference to Mothra from the namesake 1961 movie. The subtle change in its name follows the trend of Terraria enemies' and bosses' names ending with the suffix -ron, such as 骷髅王, 猪龙鱼公爵, and 猪龙.
- If the Eclipse finishes, or all players die, Mothron floats up to the sky and despawns, similar to the Martian Saucer and Pumpkin/Frost Moon Event Bosses. In addition, it becomes invincible after the end of the Eclipse.
