Bone Serpents are burrowing worm-like enemies that spawn in The Underworld. They are immune to lava as well as the Poisoned, On Fire!, and Cursed Inferno debuffs. Bone Serpents consist of 14-20 segments in total.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Bone Serpents are not restricted to The Underworld, and can follow the player out.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • As with most worms, weapons that can hit multiple segments at once are effective. Some effective weapons are the Vilethorn, flails and the Crimson Rod.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bone Serpents are one of the few pre-Hardmode enemies that don't get stronger upon reaching Hardmode in an Expert or Master world.
  • Desktop and Mobile versions Sometimes a Bone Serpent can be seen leaping in the lava in the background as ambience.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Bone Serpent: "Mighty serpentine dragons once ruled hell, but long ago shed their obsidian scales. A skeletal husk is all that remains."
