I’ve never been much of a poet… can you tell?
Apparently the Eye of Cthulhu is easily incensed. I can imagine it having a pretty bad inferiority complex; being a giant eyeball is like losing the demonic entity roulette. No horns, no fangs, no tentacles, no powers of fire/invisibility/poison… just one extremely delicate and vulnerable organ. No wonder it’s the first boss you face in Terraria.
And that is how I think way too much about these things.
