Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Hallow and Corruption/Crimson Variants inflict debuffs that can make exploring the Underground Desert dangerous even with pre-Plantera equipment, but can be easily avoided if approaching the Enemy with care.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While ghouls are a common enemy in many games, it is fitting that the Terraria version appears in desert biomes. The ghoul's origin can be traced back to Arabic stories of monsters that feed on the flesh of desert travelers, and desecrating the tombs of the buried.
  • It appears that the corruption/crimson and hallowed versions have a liquid dripping down their chin while the normal version doesn't.
