The Angry Dandelion is a pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns on grass during the Windy Day event. It is stationary and shoots 1–3 damaging Dandelion Seed projectiles at the player every 0.67 seconds.[1]


  • Like the Windy Balloon, Angry Dandelions can only spawn upwind of the player.
  • The Angry Dandelion can only fire seeds in the direction of the wind; it cannot shoot in the opposite direction. Furthermore, it can only fire at players that are within a 62.5×12.5-tile rectangle centered on the enemy.[1]


  • !!Error: Invalid EICONS input! The Dandelion Seeds deal extreme damage in Expert and Master Mode. They should be avoided at all times.


  • The Angry Dandelion bears a striking resemblance to the Nipper Dandelion from the platforming video game Yoshi's Island DS. Nipper Dandelions also release spores when they are affected by wind.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Angry Dandelion: "All this wind can make just about anyone angry. Evidently, this includes otherwise harmless dandelions and their deadly seeds."


  • Desktop 1.4.1: Fixed an issue where the Angry Dandelion's projectile damage scaled twice, resulting in it doing far more than it should have, especially in Expert/Master.
