This article is about the Corruption enemy. For the critter, see Goldfish. For the Crimson enemy, see Vicious Goldfish.

The Corrupt Goldfish is an enemy that results from a Goldfish being corrupted, either by the player using Vile Powder or by a Blood Moon event in a Corruption world. Corrupt Goldfish can also spawn naturally in the waters of the The Corruption.


  • Corrupt Goldfish will spawn from a Fish Statue during a Blood Moon.
  • Although they spawn during the Blood Moon event, they cannot drop Bloody Tears.


  • The Corrupt Goldfish Banner appears very similar to the Piranha Banner.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Corrupt Goldfish: "Goldfish mutate and become violent when exposed to a Blood Moon, allowing the Corruption to take hold of them."
