The Corrupted Hornet is a Hardmode NPC in Avalon. It was introduced in version 14.4. This enemy spawns in the Underground Jungle when it has become partially corrupted.
It deals 75 damage, has 30 defense, and 211 maximum life. It also fires stingers at the player, much in the way the Hornet/Little Stinger/Big Stinger does.
On death, it has a 2% chance of dropping a Dark Shard.
