The Parrot Cracker is a Pet summoning item that spawns a Pet Parrot, which follows you around like other pets, dealing no damage to enemies. If the player stays still for long enough, it will perch on a nearby solid block, staying still until the player moves away from it. It can be purchased from the Pirate, but only if he is living in an Ocean biome.


  • When the Parrot pet is summoned, the tooltip reads, "Polly want's the cracker". "Wants" is misspelled, containing an errant apostrophe.
  • The Parrot Cracker is currently the most expensive item to buy, surpassing even the Clentaminator.
  • The pet Parrot looks exactly the same as the Parrot enemy, potentially causing confusion between idle parrots during a Pirate Invasion.


  • 1.2: Introduced.
