The Dungeon Spirit is a flying Hardmode enemy that spawns in the post-Plantera Dungeon. It can go through walls and drops Ectoplasm, which can be used to craft many Spectre-related items.

Whenever you defeat an enemy with more than 100 health points in the Hardmode post-Plantera Dungeon there is a 8.33% (1/12) / 12.5% (1/8) chance of a Dungeon Spirit spawning. Statue spawned enemies will never spawn Dungeon Spirits on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version.


  • If you have an active Wisp in a Bottle, the Dungeon Spirit may blend in and be mistaken as the Wisp, as they look very similar. Dyeing the Wisp is an effective way around this without dismissing the light pet.
  • In Expert ModeDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions, all enemies have double health and all pre-Hardmode enemies receive a further health bonus when in Hardmode. Because of this, all enemies in the Dungeon that can be killed can spawn Dungeon Spirits, except for Cursed Skulls. In Master Mode Desktop and Mobile versions, all enemies have a further health increase, putting Cursed Skulls above 100 max health, which allows them to spawn Dungeon Spirits as well.
  • Desktop and Mobile versions The spawning of Dungeon Spirits is affected by Luck.


  • An easy way to farm Dungeon Spirits is to find or place a Water Candle in a large room that has many tunnels leading into it and use the Piranha Gun on enemies, as the weapon will automatically chase the Dungeon Spirit when it spawns.
  • Additionally, you can place a Garden Gnome and/or drink one of the various Luck Potions. This will increase the likelihood that killed enemies will spawn a Dungeon Spirit.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Dungeon Spirit: "Sometimes, highly concentrated ectoplasm gathers inside the more powerful of the cursed inhabitants of the Dungeon."
  • Dungeon Spirit is the icon of the achievement "Robbing The Grave".
