"The desert winds stir..."

The Desert Djinn is a Pre-Hardmode boss fought in the Desert Biome.


The Desert Djinn doesn't spawn on his own, and requires the player to summon him using the Desert Lamp while in the Desert.


The Desert Djinn's AI is similar to that that of a Sand Elemental, but with several differences.

  • At the start of the fight, he summons a sandstorm that lasts for the entirety of the fight.
  • The Desert Djinn slowly follows the Player while periodically spawning three Sand Tornadoes.
  • He will spin his arm around and dash at the Player.
  • He will attempt to get close to the Player while performing rapid punches.

When outside the Desert, Desert Djinn enters an enraged state, executing a series of rapid punches that instantly kill the player if close. If entered back, he turns to normal.


  • Anything that can help you jump or fly over the Sand Tornadoes, like bottle accessories or rocket boots, will help with dodging.
  • Accessories that reduce knockback help, because if you get knocked out of the desert, or just exit it by accident, the Desert Djinn will enrage.
    • Also, in the event where going through a Sand Tornado is the only realistic option during the fight, knockback reduction/resistance will tremendously help with those situations.


  • The Desert Djinn is a reference to the popular anime JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.
  • The Desert Djinn is getting removed in the next update.
