The Man Eater is an enemy found only in the Underground Jungle biome, and is nearly identical in appearance and behavior to the above-ground Snatcher. Man Eaters spawn anchored to blocks, with an extendable stem topped by a pincher. The stem itself is a passive component and can be walked through safely without incurring damage; only the pincher inflicts or takes damage.

Destroying the block that a Man Eater is rooted on kills it instantly; however, this method of dispatching a Man Eater never yields any dropped items.

Man Eaters are immune to the Poisoned debuff.

Differences from Snatchers[edit | edit source]

  • Man Eater's body color is a brown/pinkish vine, as opposed to a green vine for Snatchers.
  • Man Eaters have a chance to drop Vines, whereas Snatchers don't.
  • Man Eaters can extend their stems about twice as far as Snatchers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When lit on fire with weapons such as the Sunfury, their erratic movement patterns may cause them to reveal hidden caves with their light.
