A title message is a mock slogan displayed as Terraria's window title at the top of the game window. These messages often reference popular culture or other video games. A title message is chosen at random from the list below each time the game is started, and remains unchanged until either the game is exited completely and restarted, or a language button in the language selection menu is clicked, at which point a new message is randomly chosen.

A title message can only display if Terraria's current settings allow a title bar to be present on Terraria's game window. When the game is set to full-screen, or "Borderless Window" mode is enabled (Settings → Video → Resolution), no title will be displayed normally. The title message will always be visible as part of the process collection in the Windows "Task Switcher" Alt+↹ Tab.

The current title message appears in the top-left corner of the game window on Windows 7 and Windows 10. It appears in the top-middle of the game window on Windows 8 and 8.1, macOS, and Ubuntu.

There are 68 different title messages.

  • In 1.4, the message "Also try Edge of Space!" was replaced with "Also try Breath of the Wild!". This may have been because in the years since's release in 2015, Edge of Space was perceived by many players to have been abandoned unfinished by its developers, leading to it attaining a "Mostly Negative" rating on Steam.
