Vile Powder is a thrown consumable item that can be used to clear blocks of Hallow. It releases as a cloud spread with a very short range comparable to that of a Broadsword, and produces a fair amount of light when thrown. Vile Powder is the Corruption counterpart of Vicious Powder. It can be crafted from Vile Mushrooms, or purchased from the Dryad during a Blood Moon.

Vile Powder returns Pearlstone to Stone, Pearlsand to Sand and Hallowed grass to normal grass. It can also be thrown at a Bunny to transform it into a Corrupt Bunny, at a Goldfish to transform it into a Corrupt Goldfish, or at a Penguin to transform it into a Corrupt Penguin.

Area of effect

Notes[edit | edit source]

When thrown, Vile Powder releases a cloud which will convert Hallowed blocks to normal blocks 6 tiles in the direction thrown, with a breadth of 5 blocks, and also the blocks the player is standing on. It will corrupt Bunnies, Goldfish, and Penguins in this area of effect. Vicious Powder and Purification Powder also have this area of effect.
