The Vampire Miner is a new monster introduced in the console (and iOS) version of Terraria. It looks almost like the Undead Miner but with darker hue.


  • It has more health than the Undead Miner, and it deals more damage.
  • It only spawns near the stone layer and it seems to be more common than the Undead Miner.
  • Has a red "tint" to its sprite (which looks like a normal Undead Miner).
  • Confirmed to drop the same loot as an Undead Miner, although percentage might be slightly different.
  • It is possible it will spawn after a set amount of Skeletons have been killed, this is unconfirmed though.
