The Nova is a Hardmode enemy which spawns on the Surface Astral Infection biome. Initially, it loosely hovers near the player. If it maintains a line of sight on the player for long enough, it stops in place, then begins to accelerate in a straight line until it collides with the player or any surface, exploding on contact.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This enemy will not drop any loot if it dies by charging into a block.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This enemy is named after a nova (Latin for "new", as in "new star"); a strong and rapid increase in the brightness of a star.
