|AI Type||Herpling AI|
- Internal NPC ID: 177
Derpling spawns on the surface Jungle during the daytime when Hardmode is activated in place of the Giant Flying Foxes that spawn at night. This insect-like enemy jumps high and attempts to land on the player. It can strafe to the sides in mid-air, making it a pain to deal with. One is advised to deal with them quickly, as they spawn fast and can easily overwhelm the player.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Derpling is often considered to be a counterpart to the Herpling, as both have names based on the phrase "herp derp", and have the same AI.
- The Bestiary entry for the Derpling: "These large, sapphire-shelled fleas leap around incessantly. They can drain the blood content of one man within seconds."
