Bees are small flying 敌怪 that are spawned by the 蜂王 Boss in the 地下丛林, and will also appear when destroying a beehive and occasionally when mining 蜂巢 blocks that make up giant underground 蜂巢s. They are not to be confused with summoned bees from the 蜜蜂枪 or the 蜂窝. Bees are immune to the 中毒 and 毒液 减益s. In 专家模式, they will inflict the Poisoned debuff to players.
- Unlike summoned Bees, these bees do not die/despawn when entering water.
- The damage done by bees is greatly increased in hardmode if you are playing on an expert mode world. This can easily catch players unawares, as bees are normally easily dealt with at this stage of the game.
- They don't drop Souls of Light, 暗影之魂, 生物群落钥匙s, or 生物群落钥匙模具s.
- Since they can spawn from hive blocks, it is recommended that you enter the hive with caution, even though they have almost no defense (2 and 5) and very little health. A 镐 will kill them, even those made of 铜. Even with this, breaking too many hives at once can cause a player with low-tier 盔甲 to die if not careful.
- 黄蜂 - similar, but much more dangerous 敌怪
- 蜜蜂坐骑 - a rideable bee 坐骑
- Hornet minion - a hornet 仆从 which fights enemies
- Baby Hornet pet - a hornet 宠物 (which will not fight)
- Tiphia pet - a tiphia pet (which will do 1 damage to enemies every ~0.3 seconds, but not chase them)
- 1.3.1：Added naturally occurring Beehive traps, which release 2-3 bees when destroyed.
