This article is about the corruption enemy. For the critter, see Goldfish. For the crimson enemy, see Vicious Goldfish.

The Corrupt Goldfish is an enemy that results from a Goldfish being corrupted, either by the player using Vile Powder or by a Blood Moon event on a Corruption world. Corrupt Goldfish can also spawn naturally in the waters of the The Corruption. The Corrupt Goldfish is the Corruption counterpart to the Vicious Goldfish.


  • The Corrupt Goldfish banner is really just a reskinned version of the Piranha Banner, or perhaps vice versa.
  • A Corrupt Goldfish can spawn out of a Fish Statue during a Blood Moon.
  • Although they spawn during the Blood Moon event, they cannot drop Bloody Tears.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Corrupt Goldfish: "Goldfish mutate and become violent when exposed to a Blood Moon, allowing the Corruption to take hold of them."


  • Desktop 1.2: No longer generates coins when spawned from statues or when a Goldfish becomes corrupted during a Blood Moon.
