Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Steampunker's move-in requirements do not expressly require a world to be in Hardmode. Summoning and defeating a Mechanical Boss in a Pre-Hardmode world will allow the Steampunker to move in, though this can only be legitimately achieved by carrying over resources from an existing Hardmode world.
  • When fighting against hostile mobs, the Steampunker will shoot a Clockwork Assault Rifle at said enemies.
  • You may have to re-defeat Eye of Cthulhu, Eater of Worlds/Brain of Cthulhu, and/or Skeletron after the Steampunker arrives in order to buy the Steampunk Boiler.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Steampunk is a sci-fi/fantasy term used to describe a subculture that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
  • The Steampunker was sprited by former artist William Data AKA Waffles.
  • One of the Steampunker's possible names, Whitney, is also the name of Cenx, a Terraria developer and Redigit's wife.
  • The name Minerva may be a reference to the Roman Goddess of handicrafts and wisdom.
  • The Steampunker occasionally talks about becoming an air pirate. Air pirates are a staple of the steampunk genre.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "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!"
