    I think the Bosses are backwards.
    Skeletron should be the first one you fight followed by Eater of Worlds THEN Eye Of Cth...
    Just by the names, it makes more sense. I had a lot more fear of the Eye then of a skeleton.

    If you did this, you would have to make Cthulhu have more fazes then the two it has now.
    Possibly have it spawn more demon eyes too.

    I think the bosses are fine, although i do agree that the Eye of Cthulhu did not live up to its name :C. maybe it should be renamed to "The Third Eye" or something else that's eye-themed.

    See, there you go devs! The names demand the change - you should work up to the scarier bosses.

    Nah, first we need to add 2 more bosses. A very early game boss: DREAD LORD GY'LTHAX, RULER OF THE UNDERWORLD.

    Late game boss: JOHN ROMERO'S HEAD

    Personally with a few stat changes it should go Eoc, Skeletron, EoW
    EoW was the most terrifing one for me, I beat skeletron without taking dmg but EoW tore me up,

    What are you talking about

    King Slime is the most fearsome one.

    No, the bosses are fine by themselves, just keep them as they are. But definitely Eye of Cthulu's name should be changed.

    Yeah, Eye of Cthulhu seems to be too easy of an opponent, not living up to the name, but I can't wait for the epic 1.1 update with a new boss apparantly.

    I fought the EoC, then Skeletron, then much later on I bothered finding out what was so awesome about the EoW. Turn out it was nothing at all.

    So, yeah, bosses don't have an order. There's nothing stopping you from summoning a boss before any other. In fact in most new worlds I create, I go beat the crap out of Skeletron first, because he's the easiest of the three IMO (arm swing, arm swing, ROFL, rinse and repeat.)

    What King Slime?

    Eye of Cthulhu is a good name for the boss, imo, as it does sound like it is a scout for Cthulhu. The only problem being, we have no Cthulhu boss.
    Add a dungeon boss named Guardian of Cthulhu located at the bottom of the dungeon, guarding a hole which leads to a special part of the underworld where Cthulhu can be found.

    (Random suggestions below, not topic related, just post related)
    This also reguires some sort of thing that makes Cthulhu undefeatable as long as the Guardian is alive. One option could be a special non-floating liquid that covers the whole Cthulhu boss area. Destroying a wall into the boss area would make the liquid stay in its place. But if you touch it; you die. Or there could be an undestructible block or maybe... (Goes on forever).

    Honestly... I'm of the opinion Eater of Worlds is the boss that needs either an upgrade or a name change.
    A name like that suggests he's a threat to the planet that must be stopped ASAP. In practice? The goblin invasion is a bigger threat.

    Now... maybe he's really "Larval Eater of Worlds" or "Infant Eater of Worlds" or "Lesser eater of worlds" and there's a bigger badder one later. But really, Eater of Worlds is a name given to end game boss types.

    Those would be good if the game was meant to have a set-in-stone progression everyone should follow.

    It doesn't need one. It's what makes it sandbox, you can drop down to Hell with a nightmare pickaxe, dig yourself full molten gear, and skip the rest of the game if you want to. //Totally not what he did.

    I find Eye of Cthulhu the strongest one.
    I fight, EoW, Skeletron, EoC.

    Fear of =/= Is actually hard to fight.

    That sign in the middle means "is not equal to".

    EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE SYMMETRICAL.

    Back on topic: Who the hell stops you from fighting the bosses in that order?
