The Dryad is a NPC (Non-player character) that will move into an empty house once you've killed a boss. The easiest bosses to kill would be the Eye of Cthulhu or the Eater of Worlds. The Dryad reveals in conversation that she is 500 years old. She's one of five female NPCs, the other ones being the Nurse, the Steampunker, the Party Girl and the Mechanic. The Dryad can tell you the percentage of Corruption/Crimson vs. Hallow in the world. She also does not drop any items upon death.Terraria Dryad(01:35)

|Note: Upon adding a new name, make sure you add it according to the ABC list.
- She appears to be wearing no clothes, but instead vines.
- She is the only NPC that the Truffle trusts.
- No matter if your world has Crimson or Corruption in it, she will always, when asked for the world status, say it is x% corrupt.
- In one quote where she calls the Truffle NPC a "fun guy" it is a pun on the word "fungi" since the Truffle is a mushroom, a type of fungi.
- Sometimes, the Dryad will tell you that your world is 0% corrupt, even when it has Corruption in it.
- In the iOS version of Terraria during a (Blood Moon), the Dryad will not move or be able to be talked to.
- No longer gives Pumpkin Seeds away for free, she sell them for 2 Silver and 50 Copper.
- Is now assigned a randomly generated name when spawned.
