The Crimson Chest is a red-colored chest found in the Dungeon that the player can unlock after acquiring a Crimson Key from a world with Plantera defeated (Note: You can get the Crimson Key even without defeating Plantera but if you wish to open the chest you must defeat Plantera). It contains a rare and powerful weapon, the Vampire Knives. Once the Crimson Chest is unlocked and emptied, it can be picked up after being broken down with a pickaxe.

The Crimson Chest cannot be found in worlds with The Corruption, just as the Corruption Chest cannot be found in worlds with The Crimson.
