Angel Statue you say? I'm sorry, I'm not a junk dealer.

Merchant

Statues are furniture items. There are a total of 114 different statues: 25 decoration statues, 36 text and numerical statues and 53 functional mechanisms that have an effect when connected to wires and activated (26 hostile, 19 passive and 8 miscellaneous). Depending on the statue, upon activation it may spawn enemies, drop items, or teleport an NPC to the statue's location. Most statues can be found already placed in any area underground (most frequently in the Dungeon, Underground Cabins, and Cavern level), though Angel Statues also appear in chests. Like all furniture, a pickaxe is used to collect them.

Functional statues

See also: Guide:Wiring

The 53 functional statues can be further categorised into 3 subtypes: 26 enemy statues, 19 critter statues and 8 other statues. These statues can be wired and activated to spawn enemies, drop items, or teleport a random NPC to their location. Statue-spawned enemies do not drop coins, and can drop their other usual items (except food items, these cannot drop from statue-spawned enemies) with the drop chance being multiplied by a set factor. However, they do count towards the banner counter, granting the player their respective banner per 50 kills, and can also drop Hearts and Stars, potentially granting an alternative source of health and mana. Statues found in Underground Cabins may be connected to Pressure Plates, and can easily spawn enemies that may kill early game players.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, most statue-spawned enemies will only drop loot if the player has dealt damage to them. They will not drop any loot if they are killed with traps, NPCs, and/or lava damage only.

See spawn limits (below) for limitations that apply to functional statues.

Decorative statues

Decorative statues have no function and only serve as decoration. They are generally found placed underground. The three Lihzahrd statues are only found in the Jungle Temple, and are the only statues that do not appear to be made of stone. The Angel Statue is sometimes found in chests. The Armor Statue can also be crafted with 50 Stone Block at a Work BenchWork Bench.

These are crafted at the Heavy Work BenchHeavy Work Bench with 50 Stone Block each.

Spawn limits

Entities within range count towards spawn limit.

Activation of a spawning statue will not produce an item/character if a certain quantity of that entity already exists within a certain range. The range boundary is a circle, centered on the statue's spawning point.

Spawn Limit Distance (D) to Range Boundary
Enemy and critter statues Item statues
3 12.5 tiles (200 pixels) 18.75 tiles (300 pixels)
6 37.5 tiles (600 pixels) 50 tiles (800 pixels)
10 Anywhere in the world
  • Example: A new Bunny will not be spawned by an activated Bunny Statue if 3 or more Bunnies already exist within a 200 pixel radius.

All statues (even those that appear shorter) have a footprint of 6 tiles (2 × 3). Each of these 6 tiles could be used as a wire input. Since the 1.3 update, each input shares the cooldown period with each other after activation. During an input's cooldown, activations from any trigger devices (Switches, Timers, Pressure Plates) will be ignored. For enemy and critter statues, this cooldown lasts exactly 0.5 seconds. Item statue inputs have a 10 second cooldown.

Creatures spawned by Bunny, Fish, and Penguin Statues during a Blood Moon will immediately become corrupted. Corrupt Bunny, Corrupt Goldfish, and Corrupt Penguin (and their Crimson counterpart) enemies do not count against the spawn limits, allowing quicker farming. The same is true of Goldfish which start walking during rain, and Explosive Bunnies from Bunny Statues in For the worthy worlds. Another exception is the Bomb Statue, since Bombs may group together into stacks of up to 99 and each stack counts as a single entity.

Bunny and Squirrel statues will spawn their usual critters in a Cavern town, not Gem Critters.

Notes

  • All functional and decorative statues (except Turtle Statues, Owl Statues, Boulder Statues, Bast Statues and Lihzahrd Statues) have a chance to be found already placed underground and inside Underground Cabins.
  • Worlds contain up to 2, 3 or 4 of each type of pre-placed statues, depending on the world size. Underground Cabins can contain additional ones.
  • Already placed Slime Statues, Bat Statues, Skeleton Statues and Crab Statues are always trapped.
  • Despite its name, the Armor Statue cannot be used to display armor. Instead, armor is displayed using Mannequins and Womannequins.
  • Spawned enemies will not drop items that are specific to a particular biome or event.
  • Bunnies and Goldfish spawned during the Blood Moon have some special characteristics:
  • With a single wire color, up to three independent 1 Second Timers can be wired per statue, for three spawns per second each. With all three wire colors, all six tiles of a statue can be connected to separate timers, for a possible six spawns per second. Enemy spawn limits apply, though if the enemies are instantly killed upon spawning (eg. if lava or a continually activated trap is used), each activation will successfully spawn an enemy. Verify
  • Old-gen console versionVerify Nintendo 3DS version Connecting two or three 1 Second Timers to the same tile using multiple wire colors results in more spawns, though timing for the activation of the timer is required. The timers can override each other if their intervals are too close together. However, it is possible to activate all six blocks of a statue for six spawns per second with only two one-second timers if you use all three colors of wire.
  • Heart Statues will have a 10 second interval between spawning Hearts no matter what timer is used to spawn them; this is also true when using Switches, Levers, Pressure Plates, Sensors, or Detonators.

Tips

  • When spawning weak enemies into lava, the spawn limit is beside the point – the important constraint is two activations per statue per second. Given enough statues and wiring to stagger their activation, enemies can be spawned as fast as they get killed.
  • The most valuable statue in terms of rare drops is the Granite Golem Statue (5 per Night Vision Helmet); it does produce a fair bit of granite, but that stacks to 999, so it averages 1 stack for each 133 spawns (and the granite can be monetized as well). It also takes a little longer to kill than the next contenders (three hits from lava). The Skeleton statue is next best; the skeletons die in two lava hits. (The Hoplite has slightly better average drops, but also produces a flood of unsalable Javelins.) The Piranha is third, with only 80% of the Skeleton's per-spawn yield (but it's a 1-hit kill). For both Skeleton and Piranha, 80% of the potential profit actually comes from crafting Hooks into Grappling Hooks. The Jellyfish statue trails distantly and produces a flood of near-worthless Glowsticks. The Unicorn statue is another option; the unicorns take much longer to die, but the horns have other uses beyond sale. (See Guide:Making money for more details.)
  • The Metal Detector can help find statues, indirectly; it can find Underground Cabins (by detecting the chest within), where statues often spawn. Note that Hardmode ores, Life Crystals and Life Fruits have priority over chests.
    • Spelunker potions can also be used to the same effect.
  • Slimes spawned by the Slime Statue during the Slime Rain event can help add to the number required to summon the King Slime.
  • Bunnies can be caught from the Bunny Statue and be crafted into Explosive Bunnies (which would otherwise cost 35 if purchased from the Pirate NPC).
  • Another way to make money or grind for Ectoplasm is to place a Chest Statue or Shark Statue in the Dungeon after Plantera has been defeated. Since only enemies with above 100 health have a chance (6.67%) of spawning a Dungeon Spirit (drop 1–2 Ectoplasm, 50 each).
  • Spawned enemies from some statues will drop Hearts and/or Mana Stars when killed, if the player is currently not at maximum health or mana respectively. If the statues are set up with a timer and lava near a player arena, this can provide a fairly steady supply of mana and hearts. In recent versionsVerify many statue-spawned enemies do not drop Hearts/Stars, but the Crab, Wall Creeper, and Slime statues still do, and are quick kills. Even the slimes will not drop their loot if killed with lava, and the other two have no drops anyway.
    • On the one hand, this bypasses the Heart and Star Statues' tight limits on nearby spawns; on the other, the hearts and stars do not spawn in advance, only when the player is below their respective maximums.
  • Boulder statues may be used to support some gravity affected blocks when using block-switch. Placing blocks that break when their supporting block is broken (statues, safes, torches, decorations, timers etc) on this gravity block and breaking the boulder statue will leave the block suspended in mid air. this can be used to leave crafting tables suspended allowing for further use.
  • Since the effects of the Life Drain and Vampire Knives work on statue-spawned enemies, the player can build a pit with any timer spawning weak enemies to recover health during a boss fight.

Trivia

Angel Statue

  • Before the 1.1 update, the Angel Statue could be neither placed nor sold, and had no apparent use in the game. It was (and still is, even after the update) the subject of a running in-game joke, whereby NPCs will make reference to its useless nature.
    • Redigit confirmed that it was originally intended to function as the double jump item, however it was later replaced with the Cloud in a Bottle further in the game's development.[2]
  • The Angel Statue is listed to have five separate item IDs, but all five different statues will stack upon one another in the player's inventory.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Angel Statue can be dropped from the Jungle Mimic, which only spawns in Celebrationmk10 worlds.

Other statues

  • The Pillar Statue is the only statue that does not have a base. In addition, pillars are already commonly made of stone making the name a bit redundant: any statue of a pillar would just be a regular pillar.
  • The Mushroom Statue, though not being a functional statue, will react when stimulated with wire by lighting up.
  • The Shield Statue, when placed, has a design similar to the Cobalt Shield.
Unimplemented Statues.png
The two unimplemented statues introduced in the 1.3.2 update.
  • The Corrupt Statue does not have a Crimson counterpart.
  • Tile sprites for the Seagull and Owl Statues were added to the game files in 1.3.2, but the items that place them were never implemented until 1.4.0.1.
  • The spawn limit of Duck Statues can be bypassed by placing the statue in water, as swimming ducks do not count towards the cap. This could be used to max out the NPC count, meaning no new NPCs could spawn. This could be used to make the fights with some bosses much easier, and could even be used to skip the Lunar Events entirely.
