During the most harrowing times, these apparitions float aimlessly through the depths to steal the life from those they envy.

— The Bestiary

Not to be confused with the Ghost, the form Hardcore players take after dying.

The Ghost is a Pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Cavern and Underground layers during the Halloween season.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Ghosts will spawn in the Graveyard mini-biome, regardless of time. They will also spawn when players mine Tombstones.

Ghosts behave like Wraiths, hovering above the ground and passing through solid tiles to reach the player.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Ghosts can be attacked through walls with melee weapons that cannot usually hit through walls - this makes spears and whips especially effective. Both are still great for dealing with large hordes of ghosts, because can hit many of them at once.
  • In Journey Mode, even when the enemy spawn rate is set to 0× the normal rate, mining up tombstones may still cause Ghosts to spawn.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Strangely, the Ghost's attack decreases in Expert Hardmode, rather than increasing.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.4.0.2: Ghosts are more likely to despawn, and the conditions which allow them to spawn has been reduced as well as the maximum number of them.
