The Maggot Zombie is a Zombie variant that spawns in the Graveyard mini-biome. When a Maggot Zombie is killed, up to three Maggots will be spawned. These zombies have a more dreadful and rotten appearance than other Zombies, and the sprite also shows that they may be missing an eye.


  • Despite spawning Maggots on death and being relatively different from other Zombies, there is no Maggot Zombie Banner; instead, the ordinary Zombie Banner offers a buff against the Maggot Zombie.


  • The Maggots spawned upon death and the name in general could be a reference on how flies and maggots feast on rotten objects.
  • Its face and head somewhat resembles an insect's head.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Maggot Zombie: "Wanders aimlessly to infest the living with undeath, unaware of its own maggoty infestation."
