The Twins
This is going to be a terrible night...
~ The Twins


The Twins are a Hardmode Mechanical Boss which is essentially a harder version of the Eye of Cthulhu. The Twins are two separate flying entities connected by a tendril, each with its own attack pattern and life count. Both must be killed in order to defeat the boss.

The Twins are summoned using the Mechanical Eye at night, and must be defeated before dawn, otherwise they despawn. If an Altar has been destroyed, they also have a chance of spawning on a random night if they have not been defeated yet. Their approach is signaled at dusk via the chat message, "This is going to be a terrible night..."
