The Chattering Teeth Bomb is Desktop and Mobile versions a Hardmode enemy that is spawned by Clowns during the Blood Moon / Console Version an unspawnable enemy. It hops about, similarly to the Herpling, making small jumps and then large jumps as it makes its way toward the player to explode.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Chattering Teeth Bombs can be very dangerous; they can spawn in early Hardmode, posing a major threat to any player still using pre-Hardmode gear. Even with early-Hardmode equipment, their high damage and non-trivial durability make them a serious hazard for Hardmode Blood Moons.
  • Although they spawn during the Blood Moon event, they cannot drop Bloody Tears.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Since they are spawned by Clowns, the clowns should be a priority to stop Chattering Teeth Bombs from spawning.
  • They can't jump to platforms above 11 blocks high, allowing for safe killing with ranged weapons, although be wary of nearby structures onto which the bomb can jump.
  • Due to their small size, they are hard to hit. Homing projectiles might aim for nearby enemies during the increased spawns of a Blood Moon, making splash damage an ideal tactic. Weapons such as Grenades, Exploding Bullets, or fast shooting weapons such as Crystal Storm and Laser Rifle are optimal.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Chattery Teeth are a real world wind-up toy comprised of a pair of plastic teeth, often on small feet. When wound up and released, the teeth clatter and move about erratically.
  • Chattering Teeth Bombs look similar to the Bob-ombs from the Mario series.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Chattering Teeth Bomb: "A playful prank gone wrong, clowns will unleash these explosive chompers on their enemies. Also great for parties!"
