The Hoppin' Jack is a Hardmode enemy that will only appear at night during the Halloween seasonal event, (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) or in Graveyards(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) at any time of year. He attacks by hopping towards the player in a manner identical to most slimes. The difference, however, is that the lower health he has, the quicker he becomes.

Notably, despite using the Slime AI, he is not treated as a slime for most other purposes. Hoppin' Jack drops no Gel on death, and killing one is not necessary to earn the Gelatin World Tour ((Desktop, Console and Mobile versions)) or Slimer/King of Slimes (Old-gen console version) achievements.


  • The name Hoppin' Jack is a reference to Spring-heeled Jack, a creature from British folklore.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Hoppin' Jack: "This particular pumpkin seeks revenge for being carved. His hearty leaps become quicker the more he is carved into."
