Jungle Dragon, Yharon is a powerful post-Moon Lord boss fought in the Jungle. The player should be well equipped and prepared before summoning him as the boss is incredibly challenging.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

Jungle Dragon, Yharon does not spawn on his own, and requires the player to summon him with a Dragon Egg in the Jungle.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Jungle Dragon, Yharon is incredibly fast and deadly, almost always charging the player at high speeds and dealing extreme contact damage. Between these charges he will also perform a plethora of other deadly attacks, from firing a variety of projectiles, summoning many lingering Flarenadoes and Infernadoes, and spawning several minions to fight alongside him.

At the start of the fight, Yharon will summon 2 massive stationary Infernadoes 120 blocks to the left and right of the player to serve as arena borders. Touching the Infernadoes will instantly kill the player. Successfully leaving the arena will cause Yharon to become enraged, which massively increases his speed and damage until the player returns.

Yharon's speed is adjusted based on the player's max run speed and acceleration, meaning that he cannot be outrun.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Upon reaching 5% health, Yharon loses all other abilities and resorts to charging the player.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Once Yharon's first phase has been defeated, the Solar Eclipse is buffed and Mothrons begin dropping Darksun Fragments.

When Yharon's second phase is defeated with the player in the Jungle, the following things happen:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Flarenadoes and Infernadoes will not deal damage for a short period after spawning, to prevent cheap hits on the player.
  • Yharon cannot be hurt by any attack that would deal 1/25 of his health in one hit, such as another mod's butcher function or an incredibly powerful weapon. When hit by such an attack, the damage is reduced to 0.
    • If Yharon is somehow instantly killed by any means, he will drop no items at all, except for Supreme Healing Potions.
  • While Yharon is alive, the world is colored deeply with orange. This will only happen if the Lighting option in the Settings Menu is set to "Color" or "White".

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Alluvion and Phangasm are both extremely effective due to their massive damage output, especially when paired with an Elemental Quiver and Vanquisher Arrows. Be wary, however, as the high amounts of arrow projectiles may cause FPS drops on weaker computers.
  • The SDFMG and Minigun are very effective when used with Verium Bullets and Chlorophyte Bullets due to their homing effects, allowing you to hit the boss more consistently.
  • The Voltaic Climax can achieve very high damage outputs especially when paired with mage equipment.
  • The Galaxia is a good weapon for melee users due to its ability to home in on enemies.
  • The Devil's Devastation is also a useful weapon due to its fast projectiles.
  • The Gilded Proboscis is a good weapon for healing and picking off the Detonating Flames.
  • It is highly recommended to have an accessory equipped that allows dashing, such as the Asgardian Aegis or Counter Scarf, in order to evade Yharon's quick movements.
  • A good tactic to avoid Flarenadoes is to fly high up into the sky and let the Detonating Flames hit you, dealing no damage to you and forcing the Flarenado to spawn out of the way of the fight.
  • Always be cautious when moving horizontally, as the barrier infernado will instantly kill the player without warning.
    • It is advisable to put up solid blocks in front of the barrier infernadoes to prevent accidentally contacting them. The infernadoes will spawn roughly 120 blocks from the summon point in either direction, so the walls should be placed a bit closer in to account for the infernadoes' thickness.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Yharon's first phase theme is Infernal Catharsis, which was composed by the artist DM DOKURO.
  • Yharon's second phase theme is Infernal Catharsis (Rebirth), a redone version of the previous theme which was also composed by DM DOKURO.
  • When Yharon is almost dead, the theme changes to Roar of the Jungle Dragon, which was also composed by DM DOKURO.
    • This is the only track in the soundtrack with full lyrics, sung by DM DOKURO himself.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Yharim grew up with no one besides his monstrous cohorts to keep him company after the passing of (nearly) his entire family...with the exception of his loyal dragon guardian, Yharon. Long ago, a powerful ranger found an egg within the depths of the Jungle Temple. She gifted the egg to her son, Yharim, to raise as a companion while she was away on her missions. Before the egg hatched it was tossed into the underworld lava, along with Yharim's entire family due to the arrogance and despicable nature of the elder brother. However, the heat of the lava only caused the young dragon to mature more quickly. Soon, it hatched into a furious beast, and was able to save Yharim from his demise, though the same could not be said for the rest of his family. Badly burned and filled with hatred and contempt, Yharim slowly crawled onto the back of his faithful companion. The dragon comforted him as best it could before Yharim commanded that they return to the temple, a new power and order was about to rise. From there the dragon aided Yharim in annihilating the corrupt leaders of the jungle and putting the power in the hands of someone with a broken heart and many scars. The dragon was more than just a mere friend to the tyrant, the warmth and light from the dragon's soul often comforted the tyrant king in times of great depression. Without his pet, the tyrant would've been dead long ago.
