Probe , which is an independent flying enemy that is launched periodically as the boss takes damage. Probes can be killed individually once detached, and never return to The Destroyer. They fire lasers at the player, both while within The Destroyer and when detached. If the red light is missing from a segment, it means the Probe was already launched from that segment.
The Destroyer must be killed before dawn, otherwise it flees and despawns.

Probes from its body that fire Pink Lasers which deal 50 / 88 / 132 damage.
A segment has a 4*1/25 (4%) chance to release a Probe when it is damaged. Probes will fly towards the player, attempting to maintain a distance while occasionally moving into melee range. They fire with moderate accuracy, able to reliably hit a stationary player. Probes never return to the main body, and despawn if the player gets too far away or dies, unlike The Destroyer, which follows the player until either one dies. Probes do not die when the boss dies, so they may have to be killed even after The Destroyer has been defeated.
Notes < edit | edit source>
This content is transcluded from Mechanical bosses § Notes.
When spawning naturally, a mechanical boss spawns exactly 81 seconds after the status message has appeared. Being in a layer lower than the Surface at that moment, or, in singleplayer, exiting the world during that timespan, will prevent the boss from spawning naturally. With the 10*1/10 (10%) chance of spawning naturally at dusk, the resulting chance for each mechanical boss is initially 3.33*1/30 (3.33%) . Once one of them has been defeated, the remaining two have a resulting 5*1/20 (5%) chance of spawning naturally, and after defeating the second one, the last one has the full chance of 10*1/10 (10%) . It is possible to summon a mechanical boss pre-Hardmode if the summoning item is brought in from another world. However, if the Wall of Flesh has not been defeated, Plantera”s Bulbs will not start spawning. When The Destroyer is off-screen, it can move around freely, even without blocks, similarly to a Wyvern. The Destroyer is extremely long, measuring 82 segments including head and tail, or 239 tiles in length. In For the worthy
Unlike most bosses, The Destroyer does not despawn if players get too far away; it will simply follow them to their position. This means that one can use any means of teleportation (Magic Mirrors, Teleporters, etc.) to easily avoid it during the fight, as it does not teleport either. Keep in mind that The Destroyer can move freely without blocks when off-screen. Any weapon that can hit enemies multiple times or damage multiple segments at once will have a much higher effectiveness against The Destroyer compared to single-target weapons. Ricocheting weapons can also be very effective in enclosed arenas. A particularly effective weapon is the Daedalus Stormbow
. Note that Heart Arrows only freeze The Destroyer if they hit its head segment. The head of The Destroyer has 0 defense. Although it causes massive damage to the player (70 / 280 / 420 ) and it might be very difficult to damage only the head segment, focusing it can speed up the fight tremendously. If minions are used, they should be directed to target the head at all times. Probes should be taken out as soon as possible, since they may greatly interfere with the fight and additionally serve as a steady source of Hearts (50% drop rate). Using the Minimap to see where the Destroyer will surface can greatly help with dodging. Farming the Destroyer is a quick method for making money, as its drops can be used to craft multiple Light Discs, which sell for 6 each.
Trivia < edit | edit source>
With 280 / 420 damage, The Destroyer”s head has the third-highest damage of any boss in Expert
. It is second only to the Moon Lord”s
. It can kill players without defense enhancements and Life Fruit health increases in one hit in Master Mode. The Destroyer has the most total health of any boss except the Moon Lord. It still has the largest single health bar, as the Moon Lord”s total health is the combination of all its body parts, and the Moon Lord”s parts all have lower individual health than The Destroyer. This makes the Destroyer a useful target for testing DPS on higher-tier Hardmode weapons with secondary effects that do not work on Target Dummies, like the Phantasm
Mobile version release included The Destroyer having blue-lit segments instead of red.
Bestiary entry for The Destroyer: “A mechanical simulacrum of Cthulhu”s spine decorated in laser-armed probes, which detach from its body when damaged.”
