The Demolitionist is an NPC that will move in and sell explosives when his conditions are met. He spawns once you obtain one piece of either Dynamite, Grenade, Bomb or a Sticky Bomb in your inventory (placing explosives in the Hotbar will have no effect) and you have a home for him to live in.
An easy way to acquire him is to hunt down an Undead Miner, since these have a 90% chance of dropping an explosive upon death.
He will only spawn in worlds in which you have held an explosive, in any part of your inventory, and the object doesn't need to be used. There have been a few reports of him not spawning (This has found to be due to the fact that he sometimes spawns under the surface and gets stuck. Removing him from his room/house at night and placing him back into his old one in the morning may fix this glitch.). He will leave his house in the morning, however he will return back at night.
If you acquire an explosive prior to meeting the requirements to get the Merchant, he will NOT spawn until the Merchant has spawned. The aforementioned glitch is most likely due to the fact that obtaining the Merchant is a prerequisite to obtaining the Demolitionist.
