The Hercules Beetle is an accessory sold by the Witch Doctor if living in a Jungle biome. The player must have defeated Plantera and obtained the Pygmy Staff. It increases minion damage by 15% and knockback by a moderate amount. Combined with the Tiki Armor or Spooky Armor sets, pygmies and ravens are able to defeat most Hard Mode enemies with ease.
- The Hercules beetle does NOT affect summons that are not minions, such as those summoned by the Staff of the Frost Hydra.
- The Pygmy Staff must be in your inventory before the Witch Doctor can sell you the Hercules Beetle.
- Became an ingredient in Papyrus Scarab.
- Added to the game.
