Not to be confused with Shrimpy Truffle.

The Scaly Truffle is a Hardmode mount-summoning item that summons a Pigron Mount that allows the player to fly for a limited time and run faster on land. The Scaly Truffle is obtained by fishing in the cavern layer of an Ice biome overlapping a Hallow, Corruption, or Crimson biome in Hardmode.

The highlighted area is where fishing can yield a Scaly Truffle (Snow+Cavern+Crimson).


  • The Pigron Mount's maximum flight time is 2.67 seconds, comparable to the Bee/Butterfly/Flame Wings.
  • There is no movement bonus in liquids.
  • The top running speed of a Pigron Mount is 46 mph, reached after approximately 5.8 seconds.[1]

Yawn animation of the Pigron Mount.
  • Although the Pigron enemy can appear in different colors, the Pigron Mount's color is pink, and is slightly different from the Hallow Pigron.
    • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Pigron Mount can be dyed in the mount equipment slot to fit a player's preference, and the biome-specific colors of the Pigron enemy can be recreated with Purple Dye for Corruption, and Red Dye for Crimson.
  • When standing still on Pigron Mount for between 15 and 25 seconds, it will eventually yawn.Verify
  • The Pigron Mount buff tooltip, "Now you see me...", is a reference to how Pigrons can turn nearly invisible. It is also a reference to the widely used phrase "Now you see me... now you don't."
  • The reason of the Pigron Mount's summon item being a Scaly Truffle is most likely due to truffle hogs (a kind of domesticated pig) are used for locating truffles in the real world.


  • Desktop 1.4.3: Removed the last period in the buff tooltip ("Now you see me...." to "Now you see me...").
