This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.
I feel like the Truffle is a bit misunderstood, he really is a fun guy.

— The Dryad

Not to be confused with Truffle Worm, Shrimpy Truffle, or Scaly Truffle.

The Truffle is a Hardmode NPC vendor who sells various mushroom-themed items. To get the Truffle to move in, there must be a vacant House in (or near) a surface Mushroom biome during Hardmode. Surface Mushroom biomes must be created manually by a player and do not generate naturally. 100 blocks of Mushroom grass and Mushroom plants are required.

When threatened by enemies on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Truffle will release Truffle Spore.gif mushroom spores, which hover in air and deal damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If other NPCs are waiting to move in, they may move into a Mushroom biome home before the Truffle can. When attempting to spawn the Truffle, try to make sure enough Houses exist for other NPCs that have not yet spawned. Even after constructing a house meeting all the architectural requirements, it may still be "not valid housing;" that may be because there is too much Corruption or Crimson beneath the house, meaning you'll have to dig under and purify it.
  • The Truffle is male and has a chance to be teleported by a King Statue.
  • The Truffle cannot be relocated to a house outside a surface Mushroom biome but can be moved to a different valid house in another surface Mushroom biome. Trying to move him to an invalid house will give the error message, "This housing does not meet the requirements for a Truffle".
  • The Truffle can however stay in a house after the surface Mushroom biome is destroyed. This can be exploited by creating an artificial Mushroom Biome near all of the other Houses and NPCs, have him move in, and then destroy the corresponding Mushroom biome, therefore having all of your NPCs in one place outside of a Mushroom biome.

Names[edit | edit source]

  • Agaric

  • Chanterelle

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I tried to lick myself the other day to see what the big deal was, everything started glowing blue."
  • "Everytime I see the color blue, it makes me depressed and lazy."
  • "You haven't seen any pigs around here have you? My brother lost his leg to one."
  • "I don't know the 'Truffle Shuffle,' so stop asking!"
  • "There's been such a huge rumor that's being spread about me, 'If you can't beat him, eat him!'"

When Clothier is present:

  • "Everyone in this town feels a bit off. I woke up to the clothier chewing on my foot last night."

When Dryad is present:

  • "Between you and me, the Dryad is the only one I trust. She is the only one here who hasn't tried to eat me or use me in a potion."
