Not to be confused with Shrimpy Truffle.

The Scaly Truffle is a Hardmode Mount summoning item. When used, it summons a Pigron Mount that allows the player to fly for a limited time, and run faster on land. It is obtained by Fishing in the cavern layer of a Snow biome overlapping a Hallow, Corruption, or Crimson biome in Hardmode. Chance to catch it is 1/100 with 50 Fishing power and 1/50 with 100 Fishing Power.

Highlighted area is where Fishing can yield a Scaly Truffle (Snow+Cavern+Crimson/Corruption/Hallow -- Crimson in this case). This combination will generally become available in Hardmode only.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • At top speed, running with Lightning Boots is faster than on a Pigron Mount.
  • Flight time on a Pigron Mount is comparable to Frozen/Flame/Spectre/Beetle/Leaf Wings.
  • There is no movement bonus in liquids.
  • The top running speed of a Pigron Mount is 46mph.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the Pigron enemy can appear in different colors, the Pigron Mount's color is pink.
    • Desktop VersionConsole Version The Pigron Mount can be dyed in the Mount equip slot to fit a player's preference, and the biome specific colors of the Pigron enemy can be recreated with purple for Corruption, and red for Crimson.
  • When standing still on it for a while, it will eventually yawn.
  • The Pigron's mount description "Now you see me..." is a reference to how Pigrons can turn nearly invisible. It is also a reference to the widely used phrase, “Now you see me... now you don’t.”
