Electrified is a debuff that causes the player to take significant damage when moving horizontally (-16 life per second) and a smaller amount of damage when not moving (-4 life per second). The damage inflicted by this debuff is capable of killing or severely weakening players relying on constant movement to avoid damage from enemies. Using a Grappling Hook or teleporting with a Rod of Discord will not increase damage. Pressing ◀ Left or ▶ Right when unable to move (Hooks, blocks, other debuffs, etc.) will also increase damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dying from the debuff will display unique death messages:
    • "[PlayerName] couldn't handle the volts."
    • "[PlayerName] couldn't contain the watts."
  • The method in which Electrified damages the player is similar to how static electricity shocks people when they rub a static surface.
