Spookits are a unique monster found in forest and midnight biomes. They also appear in the Desert Subsurface underground layer as well as in underground layers 0b, 1d and 5a. As of Version 1.2.0 they can now be found guarding Ancient Essence Chests inside Ancient Vaults with electric and poison themes as well.

They float after the player through the air and can phase through blocks. When attacked it closes its eye and becomes transparent and immune to being attacked until it opens it eye again, although they will still be poisoned/on fire. While the eye is shut, the Spookit is unable to damage players.

This monster has a resistance (-50% damage taken) to non-elemental damage.

Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the status effect burning when touched.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.

  • The name Spookit is likely a portmanteau of "spook" and “kitty”.
