The Hoppin' Jack is a Hardmode pumpkin-like enemy that will only appear at night during the Halloween seasonal event. It attacks by hopping towards the player in a manner identical to most Slimes. The difference, however, is that the lower on health it is, the quicker it becomes.

Notably, despite using the Slime AI, it is not treated as a slime for most other purposes. Hoppin' Jack drops no Gel on death, will remain hostile to a player with Royal Gel equipped, and killing one is not necessary to earn the Gelatin World Tour (Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version) or Slimer/King of Slimes (Old-gen console version) achievements.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name Hoppin' Jack is a reference to Spring-heeled Jack, a creature from British folklore.
