Resemblance[edit source]

So why does this thing, at the size used in-game, look sort of like a puppy with an Elvis hairdo? --98.155.5.111 08:22, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

AI discrepancy[edit source]

article says spider AI but the info card says fighter AI is this correct? 96.28.175.158 01:04, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

It should, in some way or another, show both. I'm not really sure how the whole infobox system works now, though, so I'll ask others first as to what to do —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 13:00, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
From what I can tell by looking at the source code, The Possessed does not actually use the Spider AI. It is set to use Fighter AI in the general initialization function (from which the infobox automatically takes the AI information, by the way) and has a dedicated section in the respective function (Terraria.NPC.AI_003_Fighters()) where its wall movement is defined. Furthermore, there is no separate "On Wall" NPC for The Possessed, like with the other spider NPCs, and The Possessed is neither accounted for in the ground-to-wall-transformation part of Fighter AI nor in the wall-to-ground-transformation part of Spider AI. I will remove that item of trivia; thank you for bringing it up! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 13:59, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
