Does defeating the Wall of Flesh make every world I've created go into Hardmode?

If I create a world after defeating the WOF, will it be created in Hardmode?

No. Hardmode is per world. When hardmode starts after you defeat the Wall of Flesh, it will only affect the current world, and doesn't affect any others you may have saved or created.


Hardmode is a per-world occurrence. If you kill the WoF in one world, only that world will go into Hardmode.

I know this from experience. Recently, I killed the WoF in my one world, and all of the other worlds (secret seeds or otherwise) stayed in their Pre-Hardmode state.
