This article is about the Werewolf enemy. For the buff of the same name, see Werewolf (buff).

The Werewolf is a Hardmode enemy that only spawns at night while a full moon is active, during which it is as common as Zombie. Werewolves can open doors and have a 12.5*1/8 (12.5%) chance to inflict the Bleeding debuff. At close range, Werewolves attack the player by leaping or lunging, closing distances quickly to catch unwary players off-guard.

The Werewolf can drop the Moon Charm, which allows the player to transform into a Werewolf at night.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If forced to go through a 2-tile high space, it will stand with its arms down for a few seconds and then move away from the player.
  • The Werewolf will still attack the player even if the player has the Werewolf buff from the Moon Charm or its upgrades.
  • Werewolves can spawn on Blood Moons only if it is also a full moon, and without increased spawn rates.[1]

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In common lore, the main weakness of werewolves is silver (e.g., Silver Bullets), but silver items in Terraria offer no particular benefit in dealing with them.
    • Werewolves in Terraria share the trait of roaming during a full moon with common-lore werewolves, however.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Werewolf: "Cursed by the moonlight, these menacing lupines were once human. Now, they feast on their loved ones instinctively."
