Old-gen console-exclusive content
The Japanese old-gen console versions (PS3, PS Vita, Wii U) seem to have everything the U.S. console versions have, aside from Purple Thread (instead, they use White Thread) and due to copyright issues, the Hero's set was replaced with the Monokuma set, and the Plumber's set was replaced with the Shiren set. They also have other exclusive costumes, crafted from the exclusive White Thread, shown below.
Japanese PS4 now uses Green Thread (instead of White Thread), and the Hero's set and Plumber's set were added. The Monokuma and Shiren sets are still obtainable, however the other sets appear to have been removed.
- The visual novel adventure game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc also features a small reference to Terraria in one of the game menus.
- Terraria has its own Japanese website and used to have its own licensed Let's Play series.
- The Japan-exclusive vanity sets reference Toro Inoue, the mascot of Sony's PlayStation Network in Japan, who also appears in numerous other video games, Monomi and Monokuma from the video game franchise Danganronpa, and Shiren, protagonist of the roguelike video game Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer.
- The Danganronpa crossover was suggested by the publisher of the game as an alternative for the Hero's set, as they were concerned it would trigger potential copyright issues in Japan.
- Most of the information pertaining to these exclusive items were obtained from the Japanese Terraria wiki terraria_cs.arcenserv. This includes item source, crafting recipe, and buy/sell value. Unfortunately, the Japanese wiki information regarding which consoles have which items is lacking. It may well be that these items are available to all the Japanese consoles PS3, PS Vita, and Wii U. Japanese console players are needed to verify this information.
