Terraria Boss - The Beast. by Endling Terraria Boss - The Beast. by Endling
Next up in the Terraria boss concepts, the Beast.

One of my favorite boss battles in recent history was with the juggernaut of Monster Hunter Tri, Jhen Moran. And I always loved the idea of having to actually 'board' a creature in order to defeat it. Hence the Beast!

Definitely an endgame scenario. Not only do you have to worry about him submerging into lava while you're on top of him, his magma rock attacks, and the attacks of the imps he summons (with a terrible screech) around him, but you can't even hurt the damn thing until you open up a section of its body with a pick. (And only Nightmare or above works.)

The rewards, of course, would have to be very high. I thought an Obsidian armor set would look very neat, but the real prize would be crafting a scythe weapon.

Yes, yes. Scythes are one of the most impractical, overused, cliché not-even-really-a-weapons of all time. And you know what. I freaking love 'em. So DEAL I SAY, DEAL.

Terraria needs more boss battles and this would rock!

I had to laugh a little when I read the "Big Disgusting Grub Abomination" part. That is description at its finest right there. And yes. Fire Imps are terrible. And I love the way the "Lava Croc" looks. Oh, if only things like this existed in the game...

If only this was a canon hardmode boss. Instead of Obsidian Gear and Molten Sole (we have Obsidian Armor and Lava Waders now) it could probably drop some sweet loot.

This should legit happen

If only terraria had an underworld boss in hardmode.....

How about....Magmoar?
rainidark Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This would be awesome, but maybe give it a more creative name(I personally like the name 'Magmadon').

the fire imp thing was SO true fighting the WoF!!!
This is an amazing idea I'd like to see a boss in Terraria where you have to climb on it and mine through to actually do anything to it. 

p.s. That bit about the fire imp at the end is so true

p.p.s. You also predicted obsidian armor. GG man GG.

"you'd like to to think Fire Imps would leave you alone during the fight with the Beast. you would be forgetting that Fire Imps are UNBELIEVABLE bastards."

Man... Your Terraria boss concepts are very appealing to me!

I really wish they did exist, Since "The Beast" reminds me of Jan Mohran from MH Tri (Yes, I am a very Avid Monster hunter pro) And I'd like to really love to ride on that bad boys back and mine to get any viable weak points to come up!

I am a new fan and I was so impressed by how this looks I actually thought I somehow missed a boss when playing terraria and this was fanart.
MuteKrocodil Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Maybe it cold be a three-phase boss.
With the Grub form first,the Ledgehead next,and the Lava Croc last

Obsidian Scythe? Meet the Death Sickle.
shadextheshadow Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
"Lava-treading boots"? It's like you looked into the future and saw the Lava Waders....
Clostheman Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
Love the concept! each one is intimidating and disturbing in its own way! There should be a mod to put this in the game!

To make it a little more disturbing and have a shout out to ancient literature, maybe the "beast" could be modeled after the beast from hell in the Bible.

 It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.

Imagine if each bead was a grotesque boss! They'd each have slightly different tricks to killing them, but they'd all revolve around the same theme: finding a certain weak spot. 
The advantage to this is that you don't have to pick and choose which one you want--horned beast, lava-croc, grub monster! Compromise? To Heaven with compromise, 'cause we ain't havin' none of that in Hell!

I think that it should have a "bait- thing" on its back and you can summon him by mining the "bait- thing".

If Fire Imps are anymore troublesome and annoying than Snow Flinxes, then I'm in for hell...

That would be an awesome boss.

It's weird, but Hell is a really bad neighborhood to make a house in.

Anyway there is two kind of mob,
Demon is the non hardmode mob
And devil is a hardmode mob that give you a staff which shoots fireball (never got it though) and to be honest, farming that staff is H***

To tell you the truth, they implemented something VERY similar to this into Terraria.
Fishbertus Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Which would be...
MetallMouth Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Well, what I meant was that the Bone Croc version is like the Bone Serpent enemy. Also, the grub abomination form is like the EoW/DoW of the Hell biome.
Fishbertus Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
That's not how this boss works, it doesn't move like that. It just jumps out of the lava and summons minions, then you mine it's back. There's no worm mechanics.
MetallMouth Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Yeah...looking back, I don't know what I was thinking...
