  • Although the Crimson is equivalent to the Corruption, using Worm Food in the Crimson will not do anything.
    • It is however still possible to summon the Eater of Worlds in a world that spawned Crimson by artificially creating a Corruption biome (with Corruption-related blocks from another world), and then use the Worm Food within that.
Anomaly.png Anomaly: It is possible to avoid taking damage from using this item while fighting the Eater of Worlds by taking advantage of the temporary invulnerability the player receives after receiving damage.
Bug.png Bug : Mobile only.png It is possible to not consume the item(as well as other boss-spawning items) by summoning the boss with a single item, then quickly opening the inventory and moving the item to a different inventory slot. This can also occur if you quickly choose another item on the quick bar to consume it instead of the Worm Food.
Bug.png Bug : Mobile only.png Worm Food can't be stored in chests, except if you drag it and place it in the chest. However, if it is stored in a chest, restarting will make the Worm Food disappear.
