My dear, what you're wearing is much too drab. You absolutely must take a lesson in dyeing your tired attire!

The Dye Trader

Dyes are cosmetic items that can be placed in the Dye Slots of a player's inventory to alter the colors/textures of equipped armor, vanity items, and accessories. The Dye Trader NPC sells two dyes (Silver Dye and Brown Dye) as well as the Dye Vat (50000*5). The other dyes must be crafted using the Dye Vat or obtained through trading in Strange Plants to the Dye Trader. Primary crafted dyes can be further combined to craft shade, gradient, and patterned dyes. There are currently 110 (Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions) / 68 (Old-gen console version) different dyes in the game (109 / 67 on single-player worlds, as Team Dye is not available in single-player worlds). Some dyes will make sprites visible in complete darkness, most of which are Strange Dyes.

Dyes are not available on the 3DS version 3DS version, due to the unavailability of pixel shaders.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All vanity items will benefit from dye, except for the Familiar set. The colors shown when wearing the Familiar set can be changed using a dresser instead.
    • The Familiar Wig will change the player's hair color when dyed. This allows for interesting dye/hair dye combinations.
  • Some dyes work with the Familiar Wig and will alter the color of the hair when applied. This effectively gives even more customization potential to player hair than was previously available.
  • When transformed into a werewolf or a merfolk by the Neptune's Shell, Moon Charm, Moon Shell, or Celestial Shell any dye placed in the dye slots will color the werewolf or merfolk form's head, torso, and legs as if they are vanity items.
  • The dye crafting materials found naturally-placed can be placed again manually by players (e.g. as decoration) excluding the Pink Prickly Pear. Green and Teal Mushrooms, as well as the Sky Blue Flower, can be placed on any blocks. Orange Bloodroot must be hung from the underside of any block. Lime Kelp must be submerged in liquid. When they are placed, they occupy space as one tile, even though most of them look larger or taller than one tile (same happens to Strange Plants). Enemy-dropped dye crafting materials cannot be placed (Red/Cyan/Violet Husks, Purple Mucus, Black Ink).
  • Basic and Combined Dyes only affect the hue of an armor's color, but not the saturation level (i.e. how vibrant the color is). This means that armor and clothing that are dull in color, such as Ninja set, Necro armor, and Reaper set are relatively unaffected by these dyes. Compound Dyes, however, override an armor's color completely, so they do not have the same problem.
  • Some white-/silver-colored clothing items, such as the Mrs. Claus Heels, will not dye properly with a basic dye but will take on the desired color when a combination that features Silver Dye is applied.
  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Dyes with a small blue orb in their icon have a unique animation.
  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions The lid of a dye container seems to indicate some things about the type of dye:
    • A dark gray lid indicates basic dyes
    • A silver lid indicates bright dyes
    • A blueish gray lid indicates multicolored/gradient dyes, with a deeper blue lid for intense dyes
    • A checkered lid indicates a compound dye, with dark being "[...] and Black", light being "[...] and Silver", and bluish being "[...] Flame and Black"
    • A green lid indicates glowing
    • A gold lid indicates the dye is reflective
    • A purple lid indicates animated dyes or other special effects
    • A red lid is reserved for Team Dye
  • Dye also changes the appearance of the player's helmet on the map.
  • Some dyes that have an animation – such as the Living Flame dye or Phase Dye – can cause mounts, Minecarts, and the Wisp in a Bottle to appear invisible.
  • For some armors (such as Meteor armor), the trails will reflect the color of the dye. This means that if the player has Blue Dye, Pink Dye, and Yellow Dye on an armor, it will split to where it shows trails of the three colors.
  • Oddly, there is no "White Dye", however, Bright Silver can sometimes be an alternative.
  • The compound dyes have a different inventory sprite on Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, showing one normal sized bottle with colored dye next to a small bottle with Black or Silver Dye.

  • To craft thirteen (Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions) / three (Old-gen console version) of each dye (one for each dye slot, including combined and compound dyes), it takes:
    • 104 Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions / 24 Old-gen console version each of Red Husks, Green Mushrooms, Teal Mushrooms, Blue Berries, Purple Mucuses, Violet Husks and Pink Prickly Pears;

    • 247 Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions / 48 Old-gen console version Black Inks;
    • 403 Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions / 75 Old-gen console version Silver Dyes (costing 4030000*43 Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions / 750000*75 Old-gen console version);

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It was going to be possible to apply dyes to weapons. The feature was later scrapped because the particle and dye systems did not work very well with it.[4]
  • If not hunting for either specifically, and a mechanical boss has already been defeated, it is more likely that one will acquire the Living Rainbow Dye before the Rainbow Dye due to Rainbow Dye's complex crafting tree.
  • The effect of the Hades dyes are a reference to the character Hades in Disney's 1997 animated musical fantasy film Hercules.
