Living preferences

The Princess is unique in that she does not have any biome or neighbor preferences. She loves up to three NPCs that live nearby and is liked by all NPCs around her.

She also hates being lonely and her unhappiness is maxed to 150% if she is not surrounded by at least 2 other NPCs within 25 tiles, or 2 other NPCs that are between 25 and 120 tiles away.[2]

  • Trivia

    • Five of the Princess's names are Japanese, each of which have different meanings:
      • Ai translates to "love" (愛).
      • Hikari translates to "light" (光).
      • Hime translates to "princess" (姫).
      • Momo translates to "peach" (桃). Based on the translation, the name "Princess Momo" means "Princess Peach".
      • Yuuki translates to "courage" or "bravery" (勇気).
    • "Like my dress? Gee, thanks! Just sewed it." is a reference to a similar lyric in Ariana Grande's 7 Rings.
    • Some of the Princess's names are references to princesses from popular culture:
    • The Princess shares the name Faye with the Dryad.
    • One of the Princess' possible names is Yorai, named for Yoraiz0r, one of the lead developers of Terraria.
    • The Princess is implied to be underage. Similar to the Angler, her sprite is shorter than most other NPCs, and they share the same death message.
    • The Princess has a Happiness quote for herself: "<name of Princess> is a little unsettling to be around, but terribly cute!". This quote cannot be legitimately seen in-game, since it requires two copies of the same NPCs to be alive at once.
    • Along with the Traveling Merchant, Zoologist, and Cyborg, she is among a small group of NPCs who sell a new item post-Moon Lord. The Princess's item is a Music Box (which requires the player to defeat Moon Lord after Hardmode has been activated).
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Princess: "Shy and innocent, this happy young lady sees the positive in everything, and everybody. She appreciates all of her subjects, from all walks of life."
