Herpling is an aggressive monster found in the Crimson Biome after Hard Mode has been activated. The Herpling is a flattened monster. As with the other monsters of The Crimson, it is a flesh and gore creature, but is alive.
They can be very dangerous to players new to Hard Mode who are without good items due to their resistance to knockback, high hopping speed, and base damage. They are also harder to hit with ranged weapons due to their smaller hitbox.
