The Reindeer Bells are a Hardmode, post-Plantera mount summon item. The rideable Rudolph character it summons greatly speeds a player's movement and adds the ability to fly. It has a 0.56% - 0.83% chance to be dropped by the Ice Queen during or after wave 15 of the Frost Moon event.

Similar to the Hoverboard, flight height can be constrained by holding the ▼ Down key in addition to the Jump key, so movement will be horizontal only.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Rudolph allows the character to run and fly faster than the maximum speed attainable from accessory items, and also stacks with them. It's faster than most wings, even when running on the ground.
  • When the buff is active, fall damage is canceled.
  • Flying left or right allows Rudolph to climb to much greater heights than flying directly upwards.
  • The top running speed of Rudolph is 61mph.
  • Rudolph's nose gives off a little bit of light.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Riding Rudolph causes slightly inconsistent behavior when interacting with ground tiles. While on Rudolph, the player will still trigger player-activated pressure plates, but the player will not travel nearly as fast on asphalt as the player would unmounted. In order to obtain maximum speed, the player would have to run down an asphalt runway with movement speed buffs, such as the Panic! buff and Lightning Boots. The runway would transition into a Frozen Slime Block slide where the player could then mount Rudolph and retain the extra movement speed. Though because of its rarity, it is much more recommended to get the flying saucer, it's less rare and just overall, better.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rudolph was the first mount introduced to Terraria.[1]
  • When you stay still for a while, Rudolph eats grass while it waits.
  • Rudolph is the only mount available across all platforms for Terraria.
    • The Bee Mount comes the closest to being so, only missing from the 3DS version 3DS version. Other mounts are limited to certain versions.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2.4:
    • Rudolph no longer flies the moment he touches down if the jump button is held.
    • Fixed a bug where Rudolph could sometimes regain the ability to double jump while flying.
