The Jungle Creeper is a Hardmode enemy found in the Underground Jungle. It resembles a Black Recluse colored brown with a bit of green, and climbs on background walls similar to the Wall Creeper.

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) It can inflict the Acid Venom debuff and, in Expert Mode, gains a special spit attack that applies the Webbed debuff to players. In Don't dig up(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Get fixed boi(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, that spit attack can randomly place down Cobwebs in a 13×13 rectangular area centered on the location where projectiles disappear.


  • Like all spiders, Jungle Creepers cannot travel through a vertical 2-tile wide shaft.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Jungle Creepers seem to be weaker than most enemies at the time making them more of a hassle than a real danger.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The cooldown between web spit attacks lasts 3 seconds. It is paused if the Jungle Creeper loses focus on the player or has no direct line of fire, and it is increased by between 0.33 and 1 second when the Jungle Creeper takes damage.[1]


  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Jungle Creeper is the strongest spider enemy in the game, being stronger than the Black Recluse, the Blood Crawler, and the Wall Creeper.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Jungle Creeper: "The itsy bitsy spider climbed up a jungle vine, down came a hapless explorer and the spider got to dine. The End."


  • Desktop 1.4.1:
    • Sprites updated.
    • Significantly increased stats: damage from 50 to 100, defense from 14 to 40, maximum health from 120 to 400, moves faster, inflicts the Acid Venom debuff, and spits web in Expert/Master.
