- See also: Water (Crafting Station).
Water is an abundant blue liquid. It is found in nearly any biome in pools of various sizes, and forms the large Oceans on either side of a map. It is less abundant in Deserts, and absent in The Underworld (where it disappears if made to flow there). Water flows more freely than lava. Each biome has its own unique water color (these colors can be changed in the late-game, when Water Fountains become available). Water is only found above a certain depth, beneath which Lava pools tend to appear instead.
Upon submersion, a player's breath meter will display, indicating their remaining breathing time before drowning damage will be incurred. The point where a player is considered submerged for purposes of the breath meter is one pixel above the eyes.
If the player's feet are in at least one tile of water, movement is hindered noticeably. Certain accessories or potions can boost player movement through liquids, enable swimming, or even allow walking along its surface. Players cannot swim by default.

|Item||When combined with|
- Underground pools of water may sometimes be spotted via the glowing Jellyfish that spawn there.
- The game occasionally has difficulty leveling out large volumes of liquid that flowed into a new space. Exiting and reloading the world, or relocating the liquid elsewhere, can sometimes remedy the problem.
- 1.2.4: Actuated tiles no longer remove the water over them on world load.
- When water touches a half block, it will create a waterfall. Water can also change colors depending what biome it is in, or if it's a Blood Moon.
- 1.1: Water is in a secondary 'layer' behind the placed blocks, therefore can no longer be removed by placing blocks on it. "Blocked" liquids disappear only after restart of world.
