The Gold Mouse is a harmless critter. It is a golden recolor of the ordinary Mouse, with a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) chance of spawning in place of the ordinary version.

Gold Mouse has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Gold Mouse can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Gold Mouse Cage). Once crafted, the Gold Mouse cannot be released again. Gold Mouse itself or the crafted furniture can be sold for 10.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.

  • It might be hard to obtain a Gold Mouse, not only because the Underground biome is usually more hostile than other biomes (like the Surface, where most of the other critters spawn), especially during Hardmode, but also due to town NPCs cannot increase the spawn rate of Mice.
