The Clothier is an NPC vendor who sells mainly vanity items. He is the same character as the Old Man who guards the Dungeon before Skeletron is defeated. After defeating Skeletron, the Old Man is freed from his curse, and he disappears from the Dungeon's entrance. Once a suitable vacant house is available thereafter, he spawns and sells items. His clothes are no longer tattered, his eyes have turned blue (from red), and he is wearing a Red Hat.

Equipping the Clothier Voodoo Doll allows a player to attack and kill the Clothier (similar to the Guide Voodoo Doll). Doing so at night re-summons Skeletron.

Shadowflame Skull.gif
Shadowflame skull projectile

When threatened on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Clothier fires shadowflame skull projectiles similar to those produced by the Book of Skulls. They inflict enemies with the Shadowflame debuff for 5–10 seconds[2] and deal 16 / 24 / 28 damage at the start of the game, Desktop Version but as the player progresses, the Clothier will gain various stat increases.[1]

Items sold[edit | edit source]

Note: All item prices can be decreased by equipping a Discount Card or Greedy RingDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions. On the Desktop version Desktop version, prices can also be higher or lower based on the NPC's happiness level.

  • Tips[edit | edit source]

    • Placing a shallow lava pit in the floor of the Clothier's house (e.g. by pouring one Lava Bucket into an 8- or 9-tile long horizontal recession of one tile height) will cause the Clothier to die and respawn often, leaving behind the Red Hat each time, which can be sold for 200*2 each.
      • However, it is more lucrative to fight Skeletron by using a Clothier Voodoo Doll to kill the Clothier at night, which causes Skeletron to spawn. Skeletron drops 50000*5 when defeated, not accounting the other drops that can be sold.

    Names[edit | edit source]

    The Clothier may have any of the following names:

    • Alfred

    Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • Most of the Clothier's dialogues refer to movies starring the American actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks, namely Cast Away, Forrest Gump, The Ladykillers, Apollo 13, A League of Their Own, and The Polar Express.
    • One of possible names for the Clothier is James. This is a reference to Terraria YouTuber ChippyGaming whose real name is James Bennett. His avatar is the Clothier.
    • The Clothier appears to want to eat the Truffle. This can be seen in the Truffle's quote, "Everyone in this town feels a bit off. I woke up to the clothier chewing on my foot last night." and the Clothier's quote, "I'll give you a discount on your wears if you can convince <name of Truffle> to come over for a...sizing."
      • This is further confirmed by the Clothier loving to live near the Truffle, while the Truffle dislikes being a neighbor of the Clothier.
    • The quote "I keep having vague memories of tying up a woman and throwing her in a dungeon." is a reference to the fact that the Bound Mechanic is found in the Dungeon. It implies that the Clothier was the one who tied up the Mechanic and left her in the Dungeon, when he was possessed by Skeletron.
      • This is further confirmed by the Clothier's hatred of the Mechanic.
    • The quote "That Red Hat of yours looks familiar..." is referencing that the player murdered the Clothier for the Red Hat, as that is the only way to obtain it.
      • This may also suggest that the Clothier may have an awareness of his previous self, as he is the only NPC to provide a remark about such an item.
      • This is also the only line available when the player is wearing the Red Hat.
    • The name Pip may be a reference to Philip Pirrip, called Pip, the protagonist in the 1861 novel Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Pip goes through multiple different profession changes, and eventually becomes a responsible person at the end. The Clothier starting off as an old man and then turning into a man with a stable job and income may be a metaphor for what Pip had gone through in the book.
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Clothier: "Once trapped under a curse, the Clothier is the master of thread. If it's fashion that's desired, he's the man! He talks in a familiar way."

    History[edit | edit source]

    • Desktop 1.2.0.3: The Clothier can now be attacked with the Clothier Voodoo Doll equipped.
    • Desktop 1.2:
      • Now sells more unique vanity sets during Hardmode, as well as the Balla and Gangsta Hats.
      • Can now be killed with a Clothier Voodoo Doll to summon Skeletron at night.
    • Desktop 1.1: Now has random name given to him on spawn. His deaths will be reported with this name. Also other NPCs will use it in their quotes.
