- Internal NPC ID: 160
- This article is about the NPC. Not to be confused with Truffle Worm, Shrimpy Truffle or Scaly Truffle.
The Truffle is a Hardmode NPC that 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.

|It Can Talk?! • "Build a house in a mushroom biome and have Truffle move in."|
|Have a Truffle move into a house created in the Mushroom Biome.|
- 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 ample 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".
- 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.
The Truffle may have any of the following names:
- "There's been such a huge rumor that's being spread about me, 'if you can't beat him, eat him!'"
- "As if living underground wasn't bad enough, jerks like you come in while I'm sleeping and steal my children."
- "You haven't seen any pigs around here have you? My brother lost his leg to one."
- "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."
- "I don't know the 'Truffle Shuffle', so stop asking!"
