The Nova is a Hardmode enemy which spawns on the Surface Astral Infection biome. It loosely follows the player until it aligns itself with the player and stops in place. Afterwards, it accelerates until it hits the player or a surface, after which it explodes.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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