Not to be confused with Truffle Worm, Shrimpy Truffle, or Scaly Truffle.

The Truffle is a Hardmode NPC vendor who sells various mushroom-themed items. To get the Truffle to move in, there must be a vacant House in (or near) a Surface Glowing Mushroom biome (i.e. one that is above 0 elevation). Surface Glowing Mushroom biomes do not generate naturally and must be created manually by a player. 100 blocks of Mushroom grass and Mushroom plants are required to create a Glowing Mushroom biome.[1]

When threatened by enemies on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, Switch version Switch version, and tModLoader version tModLoader version, the Truffle will release Truffle Spore.gif Mushroom Spores, which hover in air and deal damage.

Items sold[]

Note: All item prices can be decreased by equipping a Discount Card or Greedy Ring. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, prices can also be higher or lower based on the NPC's happiness level.

Notes[]

  • If other NPCs are waiting to move in, they may move into a Glowing Mushroom biome home before the Truffle can. When attempting to spawn the Truffle, try to make sure enough Houses exist for other NPCs that have not yet spawned.
  • Having too much Corruption or Crimson beneath the house may invalidate the housing.
  • For the Truffle to move in, the house must be in a Surface Glowing Mushroom biome. Note that this is not restricted to the Surface layer, but instead refers to any house built above 0 elevation -- a Glowing Mushroom biome in Space will work just as well as one near sea level.
  • The Truffle can be relocated to a different house as long as the new house is also in a Glowing Mushroom biome. Trying to move him to an invalid house will give the error message, "This housing does not meet the requirements for a Truffle".
  • The Truffle can stay in a house after the surface Glowing Mushroom biome is destroyed. This can be exploited by creating a Glowing Mushroom biome near all of the other houses and NPCs, having him moved in, then destroying the corresponding Glowing Mushroom biome blocks, therefore having all of your NPCs in one place outside of a Glowing Mushroom biome. But, this procedure must take place again if the Truffle dies.
    • This method doesn't work to relocate him underground, you need to make him a house near a mushroom biome in the surface then destroy it and leave him find an other house for that. This also must be redone each time the Truffle dies.
  • The Truffle is male and has a chance to be teleported by a King Statue.
  • Despite his requirement to live in a surface Glowing Mushroom biome, the Truffle can sell other pylons due to hybrid biomes. The exception to this are the Forest and Cavern pylons, which are mutually exclusive and only available when not within one of the other biomes.
