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 actually a real-world amphibian organism.
