Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I know the difference between turquoise and blue-green. But I won't tell you."
  • "I'm all out of titanium white, so don't even ask."
  • "Try swirly pink and purple, it works, I swear!"
  • "No, no, no... There's TONS of different grays! Don't get me started..."
  • "I hope it doesn't rain again until this paint dries. That would be a disaster!"

During a PartyDesktop Version:

  • "I tried having a paintball fight, but everyone wanted food and decorations instead."

During Hardmode:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An NPC's shop window can display a maximum of 39 items. During Christmas, the number of items the Painter can sell at once increases above 39, which can push some items off the bottom of the shop window, making them technically unobtainable during Christmas. Assuming the Painter is in a Pre-Hardmode world and talked to in a Forest biome, the Sparkle Stone Wallpaper and Starlit Heaven Wallpaper will be affected by this. More wallpapers will become unavailable, going up the list, if the world is in Hardmode or the Painter is talked to in different biomes.
  • On the 3DS version DS version, the painting tools and paint he would normally sell are unavailable, due to the general unavailability of paint on this version.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to use Teleporters or the King Statue to teleport him to different biomes in order to obtain all of his paintings. Alternatively, one can change the biome he is currently staying in.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is apparent that most of his names are references to famous artists.
  • He is most likely of Italian origin, considering most of his names are typical Italian names.
  • Two of the names, Mario and Luigi, are the two main characters of the Super Mario Brothers video games.
  • The name Darren is a reference to a letter sent to Red by a person whose friend named Darren passed away. Red then put Darren in the pool of possible painter names.
  • The quote "I'm all out of titanium white, so don't even ask." is a direct reference to the American painter, art instructor, and television host Bob Ross.
  • His quote "No, no, no... There's TONS of different grays! Don't get me started..." may be a reference to the novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
  • Like the Arms Dealer, Cyborg and Goblin Tinkerer, his quotes may reference him having a crush on a female NPC, in this case, the Party Girl.
  • The Painter was sprited by former Terraria spriter Waffles.
  • The Painter is completely bald, as evidenced from the source files for NPCs without head wear.
  • If the Painter is talked to in a converted Snow biome or Desert biome, he will sell two biome-exclusive paintings at once. For example: If the Painter is talked to in a Hallowed Desert, he will sell the paintings "The Land of Deceiving Looks" and "Secrets of the Sands" at once.
  • Even with Blood and Gore turned off, his paintbrush and paint bucket will always drop when he dies, as if they were body parts.

History[edit | edit source]
