Hallowed Mimic

The Key of Light is a craftable item which spawns a Hallowed Mimic when placed in any slot of any empty Chest. The world must be in Hardmode and the only item inside the Chest must be a single Key of Light.

The Hallowed Mimic is spawned as soon as the Chest is closed, consuming both the Key of Light and the Chest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If utilizing Autopause, the Hallowed Mimic will not spawn until the game is unfrozen again. On Console version Console, the Hallowed Mimic will not spawn unless Autopause is disabled.
  • Placing a Key of Light in a storage item other than a Chest (such as a Barrel) will not spawn the Mimic.
  • The Hallowed Mimic does not have to be spawned in The Hallow; it can be summoned anywhere.
  • Placing a Key of Light in a Chest without closing it and directly opening another inventory interface (which is only possible if Autopause is disabled), such as that of another Chest, will not spawn the Mimic.
  • If a Key of Light is acquired in Pre-Hardmode, placing it in a chest will not spawn a mimic until Hardmode begins.
