Pigron

This article is about the Hardmode enemy. For the Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Old-gen console version Old-gen console, and Mobile version Mobile Mount, see Scaly Truffle.

The Pigron is a Hardmode enemy found in the Underground Snow biome when it is overlapped by Underground Hallow, Underground Corruption, or Underground Crimson. It comes in multiple colors, depending on which biome it spawns in.

Pigrons have a special ability to become transparent and nearly invisible, allowing them to fly through solid blocks. As a transparent Pigron starts to attack, it will become visible again. When it starts moving towards the player, it occasionally makes an audible growl. If it is in its solid, visible state and is blocked by solid blocks on its path to the player, it will become transparent again to pass through them.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Pigrons are purple in the Underground Corruption, pink in the Underground Hallow, and red in the Underground Crimson.
  • When the Pigron growls, it sounds like an oddly distorted boss noise when summoned or attacking.
  • In rare cases, Underground Cabins will have a functional trap consisting of a pressure plate and a Pigron Statue. This allows them to be spawned pre-Hardmode, however, they will not have any drops.
  • Despite Pigrons coming in three different colours and slight variations, the banner (along with the Scaly Truffle’s Pigron Mount) is always pink.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Utilizing the Hunter Potion makes finding and dispatching a Pigron much easier, as it glows when it would normally be nearly invisible.
  • Pay attention for growls while in Underground Snow, since Pigrons will usually be heard sooner than they're seen, and the sound they make is unique.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name is a portmanteau of the words "Pig" and "Dragon". This was confirmed by Cenx in the IRC.
