The Key of Night is a craftable item that spawns a Corrupt Mimic or a Crimson Mimic when placed inside of an empty chest, depending on whether the world generated with The Corruption or The Crimson, respectively. The world must be in Hardmode and the only item inside the chest must be a single Key of Night.

Spawning the Corrupt/Crimson Mimic consumes both the Key of Night and the chest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If utilizing Autopause, the Corrupt/Crimson Mimic will not spawn until the game is unfrozen again.
  • Placing a Key of Night in a storage item other than a chest (such as a Barrel) will not spawn the Mimic.
