The Tainted Ghoul is a hardmode underground crimson desert enemy. They sometimes drop Ichor, however, their Corruption counterpart (Vile Ghouls) drop Cursed Flames.

Compared to the other Ghouls, the tainted variant is more offense-oriented, dealing the highest damage (64/128) and applying the ichor debuff, allowing them to chunk off 20 points of defense from the player, the trade off is a lower HP of 220.

Given the high attack and the ichor debuff combo, care must be taken when dealing with the Tainted Ghoul during the early stages of the Hardmode, specially in the expert mode.
