- Not to be confused with the Gulper Eel, a powerful enemy that spawns in the lowest 2 levels of the Abyss.
The Moray Eel is a Pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Ocean and the 1st layer of the Abyss. It is rather big, is quite fast and deals a lot of damage. It swims around when not aggressive, but as soon as the player gets too near or hits it, it will swim in their direction and attempt to attack them. If hit, it will not go passive again, even if the player is far from it.
- The Moray Eel's eyes glow in the Abyss, giving a clear indication as to where it is.
- Moray Eels are not automatically targeted by minions, until they are damaged by another weapon.
- Despite being an enemy that spawns in the Abyss, it is unable to drop the Halibut Cannon.
