We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Salamanders are enemies found in the Cavern layer. They fire projectiles that inflict the Poisoned debuff.

Salamanders, Crawdads, and Giant Shellies are tied into the same mechanic: any given world will only have two of the three enemy types. As such, a world with both Crawdads and Giant Shellies will not have Salamanders.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like their aforementioned analogs (Giant Shellies and Crawdads), Salamanders have multiple color variants that all share identical statistics.
  • The Salamander is a real, amphibian organism (to read more, click the link).
