The Pygmy Staff is a Hardmode Minion summoning weapon. It spawns a pygmy character that follows the player and attacks enemies via a ranged spear attack. Like other minions, the summoned pygmy is invincible and follows the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff. The Pygmy Staff is dropped by Plantera (25% or 1/4 chance).

Its best Modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier presents a wider array of stat bonuses, but these mostly affect the initial summon, not the resulting Pygmy. Additionally, minions cannot critically hit.

The Pygmy minions will target and attack Mimics even when they are disguised as a chest. (Seen on mobile version)

Trivia[edit]

  • Each time the pygmy is summoned, it has a random one of four possible sprite graphics. They are all functionally identical.
  • The pygmy catches up to fast-moving players by flying while standing, sitting, or hanging on its spear.
  • The color of the pygmy sprites corresponds to the color of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • The Pygmy Staff item is needed in order for the Witch Doctor to sell the Hercules Beetle, Pygmy Necklace and the Tiki Armor.
