The Suspicious Looking Eye is used to summon the Eye of Cthulhu boss. It can be crafted at a Demon Altar or Crimson Altar at the cost of 6 Lens. It can also be found rarely in Golden Chests. The boss can only be successfully summoned at Night; if the eye is used during the Day nothing will happen and it will not be consumed.


  • Using a Suspicious Looking Eye while the Eye of Cthulhu has already been summoned by another Suspicious Looking Eye will result in the Player's immediate death.
  • Using the Suspicious Looking Eye during a natural occurrence of the Eye of Cthulhu (1:3 chance every night after the conditions are filled) will result in fighting up to two Eyes of Cthulhu simultaneously.


  • The Suspicious Looking Eye looks similar to both the Servant of Cthulhu and the Demon Eye.
  • If you summon the Eye of Cthulhu right as it turns night, it may not spawn and you will lose your Suspicious Looking Eye.
  • The Suspicious Looking Eye's tooltip was once "May cause terrible things to occur." However, it was changed because unprepared, newer players would use it to see what happened.
