The Pirate

The Parrot is a Hardmode enemy that is found during a Pirate Invasion. It flies at the player, trying to deal contact damage. It will occasionally roost on any block if not pursuing the player.


  • Parrots, alongside Pirate Captains, are the only Pirate Invasion enemies that cannot be spawned by the Flying Dutchman(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
  • Killing Parrots does not count towards the completion of the Pirate Invasion event (similar to Martian Drones(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) during Martian Madness(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions)).


  • As its appearance looks very much like the pet version, a player can easily mistake a hostile parrot for their own passive version if it is summoned during a Pirate Invasion.
    • As of, Console and Mobile versions), the Parrot has been resprited, which makes it slightly larger in size than the pet.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Parrot: "A pirate's best friend, the parrot, will tear the eyes out of any greasy landlubber with its sharp, pointy talons."
