The Splinterling is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that is encountered during the Pumpkin Moon event. It is one of the only sources of Spooky Wood, the other being Mourning Wood. It adds 2 / 4 / 5 points while the Pumpkin Moon event is active.

The Splinterling requires 150 kills to be awarded completion of its Bestiary entry and corresponding banner, as opposed to the usual 50 kills.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Splinterling: "Mourning Woods reproduce by snapping cuttings from their bodies and thrusting them into the soil. Splinterlings are the result."
  • This entry alludes to the real-life practice of propagation, in which a cutting from a plant is taken and grown into a duplicate plant.


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Health increased from 900 to 1200.
    • Due to increased number present in the event, increased the kill count needed for a banner.
    • Reduced base Spooky Wood drop count due to increased numbers of Splinterlings killed per Pumpkin Moon. However, due to the faster point gain in Expert/Master, they now have bonus drop quantities in Expert and Master.
