The Crimson Heart's behavior when moving.

The Crimson Heart is a light pet-summoning item that summons a fast-moving bleeding Crimson Heart that emits dim, red light. It follows the player around while affected by gravity, rolling or hopping along the ground. If it falls far behind the player, it will fly through blocks to catch up. The Crimson Heart has a 1/5 (20%) chance of dropping from destroyed Crimson Hearts, but it also has a 1/5 (20%) chance of being acquired from Crimson Crates(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Hematic Crates(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), which are obtained by fishing in the Crimson.

The Corruption counterpart to the Crimson Heart is the Shadow Orb.


  • Normally, it gushes a stream of blood, but if Blood and Gore is off, it instead shoots particles that look like the Cloud in a Bottle as if it were deflating.
  • Unlike floating light pets, the Crimson Heart will activate Teal Pressure Pads.
  • Unlike its Corruption counterpart, the Shadow Orb, it cannot be controlled with the arrow keys.


  • Desktop Aligned sell value with all other Crimson Heart/Shadow Orb loot, increasing it from 20 SC to 1 GC50 SC.
