The Pre-Hardmode in Terraria features some nasty-looking bosses. The Eater of Worlds is essentially a brown segmented worm found in the Crimson worlds. It’s not an optional boss, so there’s no way you can avoid this creature.
How To Summon The Boss
There are two ways through which the player can summon the Terraria Eater of Worlds.
The first of these involves locating Shadow Orbs, which are only found in The Corruption. Destroying at least three of these with any Hammer or explosives will cause the boss to spawn.
Shadow Orbs are usually located under challenging spots, and Ebonstone always surrounds them. This is a block type that requires at least a Nightmare Pickaxe to mine through.
Making Worm Food is the alternative method, but it requires you to gather 15x Rotten Chunks and 30x Vile Powder. This can then only be crafted at Demon Altars, which are unmovable crafting stations that are spread throughout The Corruption and the Underground.
Using Worm Food from your inventory will summon the Terraria Eater of Worlds boss.
