Terraria What Do Pets Do

The Light Pets in Terraria are used for generating light or simply as secondary characters that follow the players everywhere. In a game like Terraria where many locations have little to no light, the lights pets act as handy companions. The best part about Light Pets is that they don’t use the players’ mana nor any other cost.

In this article, we will list every light pet in Terraria and how players can get them in-game.

Pets are creatures that follow the player around. They are completely invincible and have no set duration. When summoned, they will give the player a buff with the same name as the pet.

Baby Grinch

During the Frost Moon event, players have a chance to encounter the mini-boss known as the Ice Queen. She spawns in during the later waves of enemies.

There is a 6.67% chance that killing her will drop the Baby Grinch’s Mischief Whistle item, which players can then use to summon the Baby Grinch pet.

Shark Pup

While exploring or fishing in the Ocean, players may sometimes come across Water Chests and Ocean Crates.

Shark Bait, the item needed to summon the Shark Pup, has a 10% chance of being found in both of these containers.

Zephyr Fish

A player can use the Zephyr Fish item to summon the Zephyr Fish pet of the exact same name.

The only way to get it is to catch it while fishing, but the chances are meager.
