Pets are little critters that follow you around. They are completely invincible and have no set duration: They will follow you until you die, summon a different pet, or cancel the associated buff.

Most Pets are purely cosmetic, but some of the console-exclusive Pets can do minimal damage to enemies. Pets that emit light can be used as a moving Torch, but they are not as reliable as a Light Pet. Summoned Minions operate similarly, but are primarily intended to aid combat rather than being cosmetic.

Desktop only.png Pets can activate Teal Pressure Pads.

In total, there are 40 pets: 26 on Desktop only.png Desktop version, 27 on Console only.png Console version, 35 on Mobile only.pngMobile version.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There is a pet that is only obtainable on the Amazon version which is summoned using the Mysterious Package. See that page for details.
  • Pets give the player a buff with the same name as the pet.
  • Pets can be dismissed by right clicking their corresponding buff icon.
  • A dismissed pet can be resummoned by placing its item on the hotbar and using it.
  • Pets do not count towards a player's current minion count.
  • Console only.png Console-exclusive pet-summoning items now have a chance to drop from certain enemies, typically their respective versions. Their chance to appear in chests seems to have also increased.
  • In the Xbox Edition, when a pet disappears, it can't be resummoned.
  • The Nectar item looks like a flower, despite its name.
  • Some Pets such as the Cursed Sapling and Baby Truffle provide light for the player which is rather useful when caving or in dark areas.
  • The seven items below are entities which can be summoned called Light Pets, They can be equipped in the "light pet" slot as of 1.3.
  • On the Mobile only.pngMobile version there is no way to cancel a set buff manually. The two ways to get rid of the buff is to spawn another pet or die.

Achievement(s)[edit | edit source]

Trophy Pet Hoarder.png Pet Hoarder"You seem to like pets."
Obtain all Console pets. Console only.png

(There is a known bug where even though you have obtained all console pets, the trophy will not be redeemed. A fix or resolution to this bug is yet to be made.)

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Mini Minotaur is a reference to Tobuscus's song "Mini Minotaur," in which the Minotaur's weakness is tartar sauce.
  • The Companion Cube is from the Valve game Portal.
