This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.
This article is about the NPC. Not to be confused with Truffle Worm or Scaly Truffle.

The Truffle is an NPC that sells various items such as the Autohammer, Hammush and Mushroom Spear. To get the Truffle to move in, there must be housing in a surface Mushroom Biome during Hardmode. He needs 100 blocks of Mushroom Grass, Plants and Trees to spawn.

  • "As if living underground wasn't bad enough, jerks like you come in while I'm sleeping and steal my children."
  • "You haven't seen any pigs around here have you? My brother lost his leg to one." (Possible reference to the Scaly Truffle which summons a Pigron)

  • Truffle can only spawn and live above ground, and cannot be moved into a house underground even if it is in a Mushroom Biome.

  • The "Truffle Shuffle" line is a reference to the movie "The Goonies".
  • The line "You haven't seen any pigs around here have you? My brother lost his leg to one." is a reference to truffle hogs.
