I've officially decided against Cthulhu ever being in the game as an actual boss. This video pretty much explains it.
Basically, Cthulhu isn't a giant tentacle-y creature you can defeat. It's the idea of how futile and meaningless our choices can be. Just being able to damage Cthulhu ruins the idea.

I think that it will be able to regenerate body parts since it was powerful enough to give them life, and managed to survive without the most vital organ in the body (except for jellyfish, some bugs, and micro-organisms). I also believe it will have the power of Corruption, Crimson, Hell (and possibly Hallow and Underground) combined, and takes you to another dimension (R'lyeh) for the battle that decides the fate of Terraria, and you must defeat all other bosses to challenge it, and after you have beaten all bosses, you will automatically be brou…Read more >
