The Mud Bud is a pet-summoning item sold by the Zoologist after defeating Plantera. It summons Plantero, a miniature version of Plantera, that follows the player. The pet keeps pace with the player by flying in a manner similar to Plantera's second form.

The Plantera Seedling is a similar item; however, it is exclusive to Master Mode, and has a chance to be directly dropped by Plantera upon defeat.

Trivia[]

  • The Mud Bud is stated to be Redigit's favorite pet item in the game.[1]
  • The pet looks similar to Plantera's map icon.
  • The name Plantero could be a portmanteau of Plantera and sombrero, referencing the pet's hat. Alternatively, it could be seen as a masculine equivalent of Plantera, given that the vowel at the end of a word usually indicates its grammatical gender in languages such as Italian or Spanish.
  • The pet was introduced following a suggestion by a player.[2]
