Eye of Cthulhu|Chance of spawning at night once the player has at least 200 health, 10 defense and 3 or more NPCs. These requirements will only allow Eye of Cthulhu to spawn once.

Wall of Flesh|The Wall of Flesh is the hardest non-hard mode boss. It is summoned by throwing a Guide Voodoo Doll into lava while in the Underworld. Note that you must have the Guide housed, as this will sacrifice him. All players will be forced to engage the Wall of Flesh.
