The Blood Zombie is a unique zombie variant that only appears during a Blood Moon. It acts mostly the same as normal zombies, walking towards the player to deal contact damage while attempting to navigate around obstacles, and opening doors if they're in the way. However, it speeds up considerably the closer it gets to the player, and it generally has greater health, damage, and speed than most other zombies. It can rarely drop the Money Trough, the Shark Tooth Necklace or the Bloody Tear when killed.
It does not have any variants, nor does it have an Armed variation in Expert Mode.
Blood Zombies are very similar to Dripplers in aesthetics, spawn conditions, and item drops.
The Bestiary entry for the Blood Zombie: "With enough exposure to a Blood Moon, zombies become twisted and cursed with everflowing blood pouring out from their rotten flesh."
