The Lihzahrd temple is admittedly quite empty when it comes to enemies, and you often have to create multiple worlds to get the traps you want from it. So, I propose a solution for both: Lihzahrd trappers! These mobs spawn relatively commonly, spawning 1/4 as much as lihzhards each. Fallen stars represent placeholder sprites.

I like this idea! The traps are rare, and the temple needs a reason to spend more time in it. Obtaining a large supply of "defense systems" is a pretty good reason.

If we assume the base Lihzhard is melee, perhaps consider a ranged and mage version of Lihzahrd instead? New Lihzahrd variants (like with Zombies) could carry spears with a rare chance of a spear drop. A ranged Lihzahrd could throw darts, spears or spiky balls with corresponding drops. A mage Lihzahrd could summon spiky balls or fire. For spiky balls, a small explosive effect aimed above the player. There is no damage from this effect, but the explosion yields a number of spiky balls that disappear on contact. The flame jet could be summoned from under the player (with an appropriate warning) and the flame jet about 3 tiles wide and 5 tiles tall.

For new drops, I'd suggest making them an upgrade of weapons that already exist:
- Blowpipe -> Blowgun -> Portable Dart Trap (renamed, perhaps like some kind of crossbow)
- Flamethrower -> Elf Melter -> Pyrojet
- Javelin -> Bone Javelin -> Lihzahrd Spear

Good idea, but, why are all of the sprites just stars? Want me to change that for you, or do you already have sprites in mind???

Rename the Pyrozard to Charizard and I'll press F to pay respects
Anyway, the overall suggestion sounds good, and I suggest the Trapzards act like Mimics in a way (They disguise as the actual traps, much like how the Mimics act that way) and attack when the player gets close enough.

Considering the temple is a small area, most traps spawn in groups, and they wouldn't be wired up, I'm not sure of that would work in terms of disguise.

It wouldn't fool people with Wiring equipment, however unprepared players will be caught off guard.
