The Elderberry is a food item that 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 Corrupt tree or Corrupt Palm tree.

  • Elderberries are a type of flowering plant that are native to North America.
    • In the real world, eating elderberries raw can lead to nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, contrary to its use in-game.
  • Its tooltip is a reference to a quote from the 1975 British comedy movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail: "Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"
  • Despite the name indicating a single elderberry, the sprite depicts multiple elderberries.
