Not to be confused with the Bananarang, a Hardmode melee weapon.

The Banana is a food item which gives the Well Fed buff. This lasts for 5 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), or by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version).

It has a small chance of dropping when shaking a Palm tree or its Corrupt, Crimson, or Hallowed variant in the Ocean biome.

  • Despite the similarities in name, it cannot be used to make the Banana Split.
  • The tooltip is a direct quote from "The Doctor Dances", an episode of the British science fiction TV show Doctor Who. Christopher Eccleston, playing the Ninth Doctor, tells Jack Harkness, his companion not to drop a banana because it is a "good source of potassium!"[1].
