Soul of Night is a Hardmode crafting material dropped by most enemies killed in the Underground Corruption or Underground Crimson (in the Cavern layer), with a 1/5 (20%) / 9/25 (36%) chance. This also includes enemies not native to the biome such as Granite Elementals.

Crafting all items, excluding the boss-summoning items and Key of Night, requires 134 / 97 / 89 Souls of Night. One of each boss-summoning item and a Key of Night require an additional 24 / 14 Souls of Night.

Notes[]

  • Although the tooltip reads "'The essence of dark creatures'", Souls of Night can be dropped by enemies that are not native to the Underground Corruption or Crimson.
    • This is further evidenced by hallowed creatures dropping them if in the Underground Corruption or Crimson.
  • Enemies spawned by a statue will not drop souls, even if the statue is in the Underground Crimson/Corruption. Spawned Bunnies and Goldfish that are turned into their corrupt counterpart (due to Vile Powder or a Blood Moon) will not drop souls either.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, Meteor Heads will no longer drop souls, even when killed in the Underground Corruption/Crimson.
