Medusa is a pre-hardmode enemy which turns players into a stone for a short period of time. It spawns in The Underground in the Marble Biome. While the player is turned to stone, fall damage is greatly increased. It is recommended to avoid flying or using hooks near Medusa.

Medusa found in The Underground.


  • If you are killed by fall damage whilst stoned, the death message will say "<PLAYER NAME> was slain." Instead of the normal fall damage death message.


  • An excellent way to farm Medusas and Hoplins is to create a "V" shaped railway in a Marble Biome, which has both ends right where you lose sight of any part of the Marble Biome. Make each end a Bumper, and continue going on the rails until any Medusas or Hoplins spawn. They will usually spawn every 30 seconds to 2 minutes this way.
