The Ornate Shadow Key is a pet-summoning item that summons a pet Shadow Mimic to follow the player around. It can be obtained from Shadow Chests, Hellstone Crates, and Obsidian Crates.

It will occasionally spit out non-collectible cosmetic coins.

Trivia[]

  • The Shadow Mimic pet is slightly smaller than Shadow Chests and real Shadow Mimics.
  • Despite appearing to be a Shadow Key, it cannot open Shadow Chests. It is simply an item designed after it.
  • While flying, the pet Shadow Mimic will emit a soft, purple light. This can be useful for players without a light pet.
