The Nymph is a very rare enemy that spawns in the cavern layer. When first encountered, it appears as the Lost Girl, who seems to be a helpless NPC in need of rescue. When a player gets close, it transforms and attacks as the Nymph, a dangerous enemy that deals high damage (for a pre-Hardmode enemy).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Killing her for the first time will grant you the Deceiver of Fools achievement
  • Minions and other enemy-seeking weapons will target the Lost Girl before she transforms into a Nymph.
  • If defeated in its Lost Girl girl form (ie. the player never approaches, and instead attacks the Lost Girl from a distance), its subsequent spawn will again be as the Lost Girl, rather than as the hostile Nymph. It begins spawning as the Nymph after the first time it is given the opportunity to transform.
  • Nymphs spawn less frequently during Hardmode (because while the spawn rate increases so do the amount of enemies that spawn making the Nymph's spawn rate go from 0.6% in Pre-Hardmode to 0.1% in Hardmode)
  • Nymphs spawn more often in the Cavern biome, NOT the underground.
  • It appears to spawn more frequently in the Console only.png console and Mobile only.png mobile versions.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It cannot attack from a distance, nor can it jump very high. Use a ranged weapon from an out-of-reach position.
  • A Harpoon, Flail or Yoyo can be effective, as Nymphs can be stun-locked. Even with its high health, the Harpoon can kill a Nymph in moments with no risk to the wielder, due to its extremely high rate of fire, so long as it is used at short range.
  • Any high rate of fire weapon will be very effective, as they cannot approach you enough for their attacks to hit.
  • A Hunter Potion, Lifeform Analyzer or both can be useful for finding Nymphs.
  • Using a farm in the Underground Snow is a good way to farm Nymphs. A summoner is recommended.
  • In Expert Mode, the Lost Girl form has twice the health of a normal friendly NPC. This makes it suspicious even on a first time encounter.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Greek and Latin mythology, a nymph is a lesser female deity who served the god of nature, Pan.
  • The left half of the Nymph Banner is of the Lost Girl, while the right half is the actual Nymph monster.
