This article is about functional enemy-dropped banners. For decorative banners, see Banners (decorative).

Enemy banners are functional furniture items that can be placed on the underside of blocks. They are dropped by most enemies and a few critters.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, when placed, enemy banners provide a Banner buff to any players standing within a rectangular area of 170×125[1] tiles centered on the banner. The buff grants players +50%/+100% damage inflicted with all damage to the corresponding enemy and −25%/−50% damage taken from attacks by the enemy. The banners of Old One's Army enemies will apply a weaker banner buff to the respective enemy, granting the players +10%/+20% damage inflicted and −5%/−10% damage taken.[2]

Multiple banners of the same type will not grant stacked buffs. Multiple different banner types in the vicinity will however all take effect, and consolidate into a single buff icon.

  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, an enemy banner automatically appears in the player's inventory upon reaching certain kill count (50 by default) of that enemy in a particular world. If the player's inventory is full, the banner will be dropped to the ground at the player's location instead. Additionally, a status message saying "<Player name> has defeated the n-th <enemy name>!" appears, with n being the respective multiple of 50 by default. Not all enemy banners require 50 kills to obtain; see below for a list of these banners.
  • On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, any enemy banner has a 1/200 (0.5%) chance of dropping from its corresponding enemy.

There are a total of 301 enemy banners: 120 pre-Hardmode, 175 Hardmode, and 6 unobtainable. Out of these, 118 belong to event enemies (28 pre-Hardmode and 90 Hardmode) and 12 to Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version-exclusive enemy variants (7 pre-Hardmode and 5 Hardmode).

Effect on damage and defense calculation

Since banners affect base damage rather than the calculation after defense is taken into account[4], 10 final damage does not just become 15 or 20 damage but can vary greatly.

This also applies to other player and weapon damage modifiers but not player damage reduction ones.

The real effect of banners grows the bigger the values are as well as how close Base Damage and Damage Reduction are. The lower and further apart, the closer the effect is to the original values.

As an example for Expert Mode, Weapon Damage 50 and Enemy Defense 80 (40 Damage Reduction):

50×2−40 = 60 damage dealt instead of (50−40)×2 = 20 damage.

For Normal Mode, same values:

50×1.5−40 = 35 damage dealt instead of 15 damage.

Example for damage dealt to the player, Expert Mode, 100 Damage, Player Defense 80 (60 Damage Reduction):

100×0.5−60 = −10 damage (1 damage) instead of (100−60)×0.5 = 20 damage.

In normal Mode, Enemy Base Damage is usually halved, Player Defense 80 (40 Damage Reduction):

50×0.75−40 = −2.5 damage (1 damage) instead of (50−40)×0.75 = 7.5 Damage.

High Damage Example, fictional since no melee attack hits as hard as a Pirate Captain's Cannon Ball:

400 Damage, Titanium Armor 49 Defense (36.75 Damage Reduction). Original Damage 363.25.

400×0.5−36.75 = 164 (45% of the original damage) instead of simply 50% of the damage.

Upping the Player Defense by 24 to 73 (54.75 Damage Reduction). 345.25 Original Damage.

400×0.5−54.75 = 145.25 (42% of the original damage).

The effect in Expert can easily grow to the point where one can kill a Wyvern in one or two multi-hits with a banner when one had to previously dance with it (10+ hits) and the very same weapon.

Notes

  • If the player's inventory is full when they get a banner, it will drop beside them.
  • Bosses do not have banners. Instead, they have trophies. These do not however grant any buffs.
  • If an NPC lands the killing blow on an enemy that would have dropped a banner, the last player to hit the enemy receives the banner.
  • The effective range of the buffs from banners is based on the center of the player's view, not where the player is positioned. This can be proven by using Binoculars or a gun equipped with the Sniper Scope or its upgrades.
  • Banners can be hung off platforms. On Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version, this is only possible if the platforms are in their bottom position (after being struck with a hammer).

Trivia

  • Each banner may be placed in a right- or left-facing orientation, but this is decided by which tile column in the world the banner is placed. Placing it one block to the left or right will flip the orientation.
  • The left half of the Nymph Banner is of the Lost Girl "NPC", while the right half is the Nymph monster.
  • Diggers share the same Banner and kill count with their pre-Hardmode counterparts, the Giant Worms. (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) The same applies to Moss Hornets and Wandering Eyes, which share banners with their pre-Hardmode counterparts: Hornets and Demon Eyes.
  • The Tortured Soul does not have a banner.
  • Similarly, the Maggot Zombie does not have its own banner; however, the Zombie Banner does offer a buff against it.
  • The Hoplite and Medusa Banners are the only banners that do not show a picture of the monster on it. Instead, each resembles dark green banners with golden Greek patterns, with the Hoplite and Medusa Banners having a picture of a helm and snake on them respectively.
  • The Bunny, Bird, Goldfish, and Penguin are the only four critters that have banners of themselves. The four banners still give a buff on attack and defense against the aforementioned critters, even though they cannot actually harm the player.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) While the player has no banner, the Nurse will muse about a hypothetical player banner if spoken to while the player has died at least 25 and less than 100 times (outside of PvP).
