Drops[edit source]

I don't know why, but I seem to get a disproportionately high amount of titan gloves from mimics. I've gotten 5 gloves, 2 compasses, 1 dual hook, and 1 stone from these guys. Has the drop rate shown on the page been proven from code? 23:53, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Yesh. Recalibrate your random generator. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 04:22, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Believe it or not, your results aren't all that significant, statistically. Once you have 50 or so drops, it becomes a little more meaningful. -- TechpriestMagos 22:43, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Dungeons[edit source]

I'm almost certain I've had a mimic spawn in a dungeon, despite the listed Anomaly... not positive though, this was some time ago, before I got Skyrim on christmas eve. -- 06:39, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I encountered a mimic in a dungeon prior to hardmode. I have never activated hard mode on any world, I am a relatively new player. It killed me very quickly.--Fyurae 21:08, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
This might be due to the common wires and switches in dungeons, along with a mimic statue. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 20:15, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Biome Conversion[edit source]

Will a chest mimic turn into a gold chest mimic when it enters the caverns layer, and vice-versa? It would make sense if that happened. I don't know why but it just would. User:Terrariatrooper9 (talk) 20:08, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

No. They spawn as one variant and will stay it until they die. -TheFrostSpark (talk) 19:16, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Ice Mimic image[edit source]

We need an ice mimic image still :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 20:14, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

More rare on mobile?[edit source]

I like how they go OM NOM NOM I WILL EAT YOU!!!! I was playing iOS and one was in the dungeon, and it scared me so bad XD. It killed me and I lost 20 gold coins. Are they rare spawn on mobile? I'm on a quest to kill one and none will spawn. I want dem drops yo! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 19:44, 7 August 2014 (UTC) They are fairly rare, but you can use a chest statue to spawn them or use a long flat area. 16:52, 27 October 2019 (UTC)IDk

Mimics not droping items[edit source]

I've killed 100 + mimics never got a cross necklace or a titan glove I don't know if it's a bug or an intended feature. Ps I am on mobile iOS 10:27, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

More common in Underground Jungle?[edit source]

When I explore the underground jungle, mimics seem to spawn more often than in any other underground biome. Has anyone else noticed this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ebuild42 (talkcontribs) at 22:56, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

thats probably because all enemy spawns are increased in the jungle (enemies spawn 150% faster & more can be at the screen at a certain time) so you would feel like they spawn more Cr4zyw4rrior (talk) 15:50, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Jungle mimic[edit source]

Since it doesn't spawn naturally, shouldn't it say unspawnable or something like that in the description of the enemy? —Preceding unsigned comment added by @DeletedUser485671 (talkcontribs) at 16:47, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

(currently unspawnable) appears just below its name in the infobox, and the paragraph above also notes that it doesn't spawn through any normal means. Seems quite clear to me. Gearzein (talk) 21:23, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
I guess it's clear, but since it doesn't spawn in the underground jungle, is that really its environment? Since it doesn't really matter and it was probably meant to spawn there, I guess it can just be left the way it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by @DeletedUser485671 (talkcontribs) at 22:08, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

[edit source]

Does the mimic banner buff apply for Hallowed/Crimson/Corruption chests also? --Veragoot (talk) 14:56, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Desktop Icon[edit source]

Because of how item link template works, having a PC only template on the page, even if it's in a section, it will show up with a PC icon on all pages where it is item linked. Please fix —Awesome_Diamonds 14:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Alright, it's taken care of, for this page at least. As long as the proper categories are applied to the page, that shouldn't happen (which they weren't, in this case). Thanks for pointing it out. – KM100 (talk) 20:16, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Chest Outlines[edit source]

I have observed that the yellow chest outline mentioned at the end of Identification happens on the Old-gen console version, not just mobile. Can someone add this to the wiki? I've tried, but the template keeps bugging with the 'Mobile version' template. My guess is I'm not doing it right? Diamondcat6746 (talk) 23:24, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

I added old-gen console version to the line. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 04:26, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Ice mimic inconsistency[edit source]

The notes section states that the ice mimic has 50 defence, but the ice mimics stats above it says it has the normal mimic defense of 30. Which one is it? Thedream64 (talk) 14:02, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

30. I checked the source code to verify. Thank you for pointing this out. I removed the incorrect note. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:29, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

AI type[edit source]

I noticed that the basic four mimics actually have a sped up activated slime AI. I figured I'd ask instead of changing it. Uygfjmhgvh (talk) 05:48, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

This information arise directly from the game files. Even if they act like slimes they are following their own AI. --Dinoxel talk 05:58, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks for the info. Uygfjmhgvh (talk) 12:40, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
