Behavior of the Brain of Cthulhu in Terraria


The Brain of Cthulhu has two phases that affect its behavior. In the first phase, the Brain of Cthulhu is invincible and it will teleport around the player. The Brain of Cthulhu spawns with 20 Creeper minions. The main boss will draw near the player before teleporting away in a random direction. The Creepers attack the player while this happens, being pulled between the player and the Brain in sweeping orbits, and forming groups that allow the player to deal damage to all the Creepers at the same time.



Once all the Creepers have been defeated, the Brain of Cthulhu will enter the second phase. In this phase, the Brain will become vulnerable to attacks and will aggressively attempt to ram the player while still teleporting around.
