The Basilisk is a hostile enemy, seen in a Hard Mode underground Desert. They are very fast and resistant to knockback. Because of this, it's recommended to use a weapon that can finish it off very fast. You can alternatively attack it from above.


  • While the Basilisk in mythology is capable of turning people to stone with its gaze similar to the Medusa, the one in Terraria does not share this ability as of 1.3.0.
  • The Terrarian Basilisk shares its appearance more with the real-world Basilisks , which are a genus of the suborder iguania.

Update Info


  • Added to the game.
