[edit] Names

The Steampunker may have any of the following names: Ada, Cornelia, Cynthia, Emeline, Fidelia, Hope, Isabella, Judith, Juvia, Leila, Lilly, Lydia, Minerva, Phoebe, Savannah, Selina, Verity, Vivian, Whitney, Zelda, Zylphia.

[edit] Notes

  • Getting the Steampunker to move in does not require the world to be in hardmode. If you use a Mechanical Worm, a Mechanical Eye, or a Mechanical Skull in a world that isn't in hardmode, beating them will still unlock her.
  • Since she only sells Green Solution when she isn't selling any other solutions, you cannot get it if she lives in The Hallow, and thus cannot use it purify areas. However, otherwise you won't be able to buy Blue Solution and use it to hallow places.
Bug 1.2.3: Worlds generated in earlier versions, in which a player defeated mechanical bosses before upgrading, will not spawn the Steampunker until a mechanical boss is defeated again. The same thing seems to apply for the Steampunk Boiler, but appears to need a new Steampunker.

[edit] Trivia

  • The steampunker was sprited by former artist William Data AKA Waffles.
  • The name Ada is a reference to Ada Lovelace.
  • The name Whitney is a reference to Redigit's partner, Cenx.
  • The Steampunker occasionally talks about becoming an air pirate. Air pirates, also sometimes referred to as "sky pirates" are a staple of the Steampunk genre, commonly associated with zeppelins.
  • The Steampunker speaks with a thick British accent.
  • Minerva may be a reference to the Roman God of mechanics and wisdom Minerva.

[edit] Quotes

  • "I like your... gear. Does it come in brass?"
  • "Be it what it would, a jetpack would suit you nicely!"
  • "Oy, whatchu got in you jiminy fluffer?"
  • "Show me some gears!"
  • "Should I become an air pirate? I've considered becoming an air pirate."

When Cyborg is present:

  • "I'm mighty curious about that <cyborg name> fellow. By what manner of consumption does he maintain such locomotion?"

When Pirate is present:

  • "That captain fellow seems to me to be 'pretty well over the bay' if you know what I mean!" [sic]

During a Blood Moon:

  • "I'm feeling a bit peevish as of late, so enough with your palaver you ragamuffin!"
