The Necra is a Post-Moon Lord boss that can be fought before activating War Mode that is summoned by making vile/vicious powder and using it in any liquid. When summoned, she will spawn in the water the powder was used in, float up into the air for a few seconds, and then the fight will commence.

Tips (If she ends up in the game):

  • Homing attacks (She is a small target, and might be tough to hit)
  • Strategies that can be used for the Lunatic Cultist (She doesn't move around as much as the Lunatic Cultist does, but she does have a similar size)
  • Use Ichor or Cursed Flames (She does use those in some of her attacks, but she isn't immune to them, same goes for any other debuff except for confused)
  • She technically can be fought anywhere, but it would be better to fight her in the surface layer (Fighting her up in space runs the risk of a wyvern spawning, the underground/cavern layers don't have much space endless a large space is cleared out, and the underworld just isn't the best choice)


  • The Eaters of Souls or Crimeras that she summons will not drop anything, so farming her just to get drops from the two monsters will not work
  • She cannot be summoned before defeating the Moon Lord. If the player tries to summon her before then, then one of two messages will appear (Whichever one pops up depends on whether the player defeated the Wall of Flesh in that world or not) and she will not spawn
  • Despite her saying "Ow! Why did you summon me in lava?!" She is immune to lava, however, she is not immune to the On Fire! Debuff
  • She can't be summoned in pools of liquid that the player cannot fully submerge in (The pool needs to be two tiles wide and three tiles high in order to summon her)
  • By defeating The Necra the player will earn the Corrupted Mania achievement, "Defeat The Necra, who's one with the corrupted lands"
  • She can be summoned and fought in the Other World, however this runs the risk of getting the Terrorized debuff during the fight
  • The Necra cannot be brought into the Other World in the middle of the fight, if the player was to go into the Other World during the fight she will not follow the player and she will instantly despawn when the player comes back. The same goes for exiting the Other World while she is alive.
