Mallard Ducks are background critters. As all other critters, they have 5 health, no defense, and are often killed instantly by enemies or the player. Their counterpart is the Duck.

Mallard Ducks can usually only spawn in the middle third of the above-ground world, or in areas near an NPC house if water is present. They only appear in pools of water, despite their size or if they are naturally generated. They quite frequently make a "quack" sound when nearby.

Mallard Ducks will passively wander the surface until they fall a certain distance or are submerged. At which point, they will switch to their alternate flying form, where they will fly in a given direction for a certain amount of time before landing and switching back to their passive form. Despite their spawn conditions, they do not prioritize water whenever landing.

Mallard Ducks, as their counterpart, can be caught using a Bug Net. They can be carried around in the inventory until placed (released), deleted, or crafted into a Mallard Duck Cage. Caged ducks can be used as furniture and cannot be released once crafted. They also move around inside the cage.

The Mallard Duck Cage occupies a 6×3 space. The Mallard Duck inside may follow the following patterns randomly:

  • Run from one side to the other of the cage
  • Briefly clean itself with its beak while on the right side
  • Sit down and stay in place
