Shimmered form

Shimmered Steampunker and her Map Icon.

When submerged in Shimmer, the Steampunker will transform into her Shimmered form. This has no impact on gameplay or dialogue and is only a visual change. She can be returned to her classic look by submerging her in Shimmer again.

Notes

  • The Steampunker's move-in requirements do not expressly require a world to be in Hardmode. Summoning and defeating a mechanical boss in a pre-Hardmode world will allow the Steampunker to move in, though this can only be legitimately achieved by carrying over resources from an existing Hardmode world.
    • If summoned into a pre-Hardmode world this way, the Steampunker will not sell Cogs or the Steampunk Minecart until the given world enters Hardmode.
  • The Steampunker is one of the starting NPC in Celebrationmk10 and Get fixed boi worlds. This means that it is possible to get her Hardmode items legitimately in a pre-Hardmode world without transferring them from a Hardmode world (e.g. Asphalt Blocks for arenas).
  • Re-defeating the Eye of Cthulhu and Eater of Worlds/Brain of Cthulhu may be necessary to buy the Steampunk Boiler after the Steampunker arrives.
  • The Steampunker does not sell Dark Blue Solution if moved to the Glowing Mushroom biome. It is sold by the Truffle instead.

  • Trivia

    • Steampunk is a sci-fi/fantasy term used to describe a subculture that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
      • The Steampunker occasionally talks about becoming an air pirate. Air pirates are a staple of the steampunk genre.
    • The Steampunker can be seen working on the Cyborg in the credits.
      The Steampunker getting electrocuted, as seen during the credits.
    • The Steampunker was sprited by former artist Sarah "Waffles" Data.
    • One of the Steampunker's possible names, Whitney, is also the name of Cenx, a Terraria developer and Redigit's wife.
      • If the Steampunker is killed, she will drop the Ivy if her name was Whitney.
      • The Steampunker’s Shimmered form has green hair, another nod to Cenx.[1]
    • The name Minerva is a reference to the Roman goddess of handicrafts and wisdom.
    • The name Zelda may be a reference to the Nintendo game series The Legend of Zelda.
    • The name Ada is a reference to the 19th century English mathematician and writer Ada Lovelace, who pioneered work on Charles Babbage's "computer."
    • One of the Steampunker's quotes regarding the Pirate comments states that he seems to be "pretty well over the bay," which is a 19th century Celtic phrase meaning drunk.[2]
    • The Steampunker is the only Hardmode NPC that can also be obtained in a regular pre-Hardmode world that isn't a Secret world seed.
    • The quote "I prefer the wide open spaces here in the Desert, great for jetpack joyrides!" is a reference to the mobile game Jetpack Joyride.
    • She most likely has a Cockney accent, judging by the way she speaks. The accent is typically associated with steampunk themes. However, when talking about NPC's she dislikes, she uses the word "dinnae" which is a Scottish word meaning "did not" or "do not".
    • Her quote, "I'm mighty curious about that <name of Cyborg> fellow. By what manner of consumption does he maintain such locomotion?" implies that she does not know the Cyborg very well, despite the Bestiary entry for the Cyborg stating that he was built with the combined efforts of the Mechanic and the Steampunker.
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Steampunker: "The Steampunker has a particular taste for steam-fueled machinery and gadgets. She sells her gizmos with an endearing accent."
