Chiromaws are bat-like creatures that spawn in the Betweenlands' Cavern and Lake Cavern layers and rarely anywhere else above the surface (besides Deep Waters biomes). They also spawn from some spawners in Cragrock Towers and the Wight Fortress.
Chiromaws appear as relatively large, bat-like creatures with a gaping 'maw' with teeth and glowing yellow eyes. They will often hang upside down from the ceilings of caves or structures before targetting the player. They extend their wings and fly around with great weight, flapping towards the player and dealing basic melee damage. They strike quickly and are most effective in swarms.
As Chiromaws are not usually seen in great numbers unless spawned from spawners, they are somewhat easy to kill. They have little health and can usually be killed in a couple hits. However, if they manage to flock you, they can kill you quickly as they strike fast and can fly to catch up to you should you run away; if this happens, try to hide yourself behind a wall. The Chiromaws will stop targeting you after a few seconds if there are blocks between them and you, so this is a good way to avoid fighting them at least while you get your bearings together.
- Chiromaw is named after the Chiroptera bat family.
- The Chiromaw's working name during development was the Flying Fiend.
