The Arapaima is a Hard Mode enemy that spawns in the Jungle Biome. It is a stronger variant of the Pirahna. It behaves similar to Angler Fish, but moves much faster and does heavy damage very quickly. In swarms, they can tear apart an unprepared player in a matter of seconds. It is better to avoid combat with them in the water and to kill them from a distance instead. If you are very close to the water, but not quite in it, they will attempt to lunge at you from the water in order to hit you.


  • Arapaima (a.k.a Pirarucu) is a brazilian river fish known to be very dangerous, but tasty.

Update Info


  • Can now drop its banner.
