Terraria Thursday - Eye Of Cthulhu
The Eye of Cthulhu is one of the earliest boss enemies you come across in Terreria. At least, it was back when I was playing it. Who knows how many updates have gone through since then. In any event, it was, and is, a fun boss to fight. It could summon on it's own at night from time to time, or you could use a 'Suspicious Looking Eye' to summon it manually.
Once it arrived, it would fly around, doing damage to you with eye beams, ramming, or with summoned minions which would chase you. After reducing its health below a certain threshold, it would go even more berserk, and change into the smaller, 'maw' variant, where the pupil would split into a mouth and try and bite you.
This version includes both phases, and the smaller version can even be used to replace the head from one of the stock characters, if you wanted to make the creepiest minifigure ever. Also included are a bow made from demon scales (I forget what it's called), a potion, binoculars, and what looks like a shield. A fun set, really.
