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.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Steampunker's move-in requirements do not expressly require a world to be in Hardmode. Summoning and defeating a Mechanical Boss in a pre-Hardmode world will allow the Steampunker to move in, though this can only be legitimately achieved by carrying over resources from an existing Hardmode world.
  • You may have to re-defeat Eye of Cthulhu, Eater of Worlds/Brain of Cthulhu, and/or Skeletron after the Steampunker arrives in order to buy the Steampunk Boiler.
  • The Steampunker does not sell Dark Blue Solution if you move her to the Mushroom Biome, but it is sold by the Truffle instead

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Steampunk is a sci-fi/fantasy term used to describe a subculture that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
  • The Steampunker was sprited by former artist William Data AKA Waffles.
  • One of the Steampunker's possible names, Whitney, is also the name of Cenx, a Terraria developer and Redigit's wife.
  • The name Minerva may be a reference to the Roman goddess of handicrafts and wisdom.
  • The name Zelda could be a reference to the Nintendo game series: The Legend of Zelda.
  • The Steampunker occasionally talks about becoming an air pirate. Air pirates are a staple of the steampunk genre.
  • The name 'Ada' is a reference to the 19th century English mathematician and writer Ada Lovelace.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I like your... gear. Does it come in brass?"
  • "Be it what it would, a jetpack would suit you nicely!"
  • "Oy, whatchu got in you jiminy fluffer?"
  • "Show me some gears!"
  • "Should I become an air pirate? I've considered becoming an air pirate."

When Cyborg is present:

When Pirate is present:

  • "That captain fellow seems to me to be 'pretty well over the bay' if you know what I mean!"

During a Blood Moon:

  • "I'm feeling a bit peevish as of late, so enough with your palaver you ragamuffin!"
