Hive King (also known as the Swarm Leader) is a boss in Barathos.


Hive King is spawned by using a Hive Egg on a Hive Spawner, which can be found inside a Hive Nest.


Upon using the Hive Egg, the Hive King will appear on top of the spawner block and begin to grow in size. Currently, if the player hits him while he is growing he will despawn.

The Hive King will begin to attack the player once fully grown using melee.

He has a 1 in 500 chance per world tick to summon a Hive Worker which has 30 (♥×15) health and deals 15 (♥×7.5) melee damage on Normal difficulty.
