For defense mechanics, refer to Defense on the Terraria Wiki

Defense is a player statistic that determines how much damage can be taken per hit. Defense can be increased by equipping armor and accessories, or temporarily boosted by various buffs.

Some forms of damage are impossible to reduce through defense. Damage from health-draining debuffs or drowning in water are not reduced by defense. Damage taken from lava, however, can be reduced through defense.
