Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Astrophage is designed and named after bacteriophages, which are real life viruses known for their uniquely insectoid and mechanical appearance.
  • An astrophage-like enemy was originally developed by a community member named L0st_M1ner while Calamity 1.4's Astral Infection expansion was being planned. A pet version of that enemy was added to the Calamity's Vanities fan mod, prior to this redesigned Astrophage pet being added to Calamity proper.
  • The name Astrophage roughly translates to "star eater".
