科学怪人 is a 困难模式 敌怪 that spawns only during a 日食, during which they are as common as 僵尸s. Hitting much harder, having more life and walking faster, they can be considered "super-zombies".
On the 主机版s and 移动版s, they can drop the 断裂英雄剑, which is a 制作材料 necessary for crafting the 泰拉刃.
- 科学怪人 is a reference to the namesake 1931 film, as the theme of 日食 enemies is classic horror film icons. Terraria propagates the common misconception that Frankenstein is the name of the monster, rather than the doctor who created it.
- 220.127.116.11：Damage increased from 60 to 65. Health increased from 220 to 350. No longer drops the 断裂英雄剑.
