The Black Recluse is a spider monster that spawns in underground Spider Nests during Hard Mode. It is considerably important for obtaining the Poison Staff. It can be quite deadly as it is hard to see in the darkness, and they inflict high damage and the venom debuff, making them a threat to players with low defense. They replace the spawning of Wall Creepers in hardmode.


  • It appears to be based off the real life black widow and brown recluse spiders.
