Zombies are a common enemy that spawns during the night on the surface or when the player is in the jungle at night or underground. Zombies attack by walking into the player and jumping when they need to get past something. During the night, Zombies will come to the player's home and try to break open any Wooden Door available, although they are only able to during a Blood Moon. They can be a serious threat to new players, which makes it a good idea to build a home before the first night. They are an easy enemy to kill when they are alone, but they usually appear in large groups, making them a challenge to new players.

Note: Placing a trench in front of a door will stop zombies from knocking it down, as they cannot jump and knock at the same time.

Notes

  • When it becomes day, Zombies will walk off the screen and de-spawn if there is nothing blocking their path. Following them will prevent them from de-spawning. During this time, they will not be hostile unless they are touched.
  • Zombies can jump 3 blocks across and 6 blocks high, which means you can easily trap them using a pit.
  • Zombies don't target NPCs and will only focus on players. If, however, a Zombie walks into an NPC, he or she will take damage and can be killed.
  • In Hard Mode, Zombies appear to spawn less frequently when a full moon rises, due to the spawning of Werewolves.
  • Zombies have one "good" leg and one "bloody" leg, and appear to be dragging the bloody leg.
  • In the Console Version, there is a Pet Zombie.
  • During a Blood Moon, about 1 in 70 zombies are Grooms instead.
  • When it is raining during the night, Zombies wearing rain jackets will spawn. These zombies have a chance to drop the Rain Coat and Rain Hat.
  • All zombies except the spore zombies have a very small chance to drop the bladed gloves during the Halloween Event.
