- Internal NPC ID: 160
The Truffle is a Hardmode NPC vendor who sells various mushroom-themed items. To get the Truffle to move in, there must be a vacant House in (or near) a Surface Glowing Mushroom biome (i.e. one that is above 0 elevation). Surface Glowing Mushroom biomes do not generate naturally and therefore must be manually created. 100 blocks of Mushroom grass and Mushroom plants are required to create a Glowing Mushroom biome.

- If other NPCs are waiting to move in, they may move into a Glowing Mushroom biome home before the Truffle can. When attempting to spawn the Truffle, try to make sure enough Houses exist for other NPCs that have not yet spawned.
- Having too much Corruption or Crimson beneath the house may invalidate the housing.
- For the Truffle to move in, the house must be in a Surface Glowing Mushroom biome. Note that this is not restricted to the Surface layer, but instead refers to any house built above 0 elevation -- a Glowing Mushroom biome in Space will work just as well as one near sea level.
- The Truffle can be relocated to a different house as long as the new house is also in a Glowing Mushroom biome. Trying to move him to an invalid house will give the error message, "This housing does not meet the requirements for a Truffle".
- The Truffle can stay in a house after the surface Glowing Mushroom biome is destroyed. This can be exploited by creating a Glowing Mushroom biome near all of the other houses and NPCs, having him moved in, then destroying the corresponding Glowing Mushroom biome blocks, therefore having all of your NPCs in one place outside of a Glowing Mushroom biome.
- This method doesn't work to relocate him underground, you need to make him a house near a mushroom biome in the surface then destroy it and leave him find an other house for that. Additionally, if the Truffle dies, this must be redone.
- The Truffle is male and has a chance to be teleported by a King Statue.
- Despite his requirement to live in a surface Glowing Mushroom biome, the Truffle can sell other pylons due to hybrid biomes. The exception to this are the Forest and Cavern pylons, which are mutually exclusive and only available when not within one of the other biomes.

- All of the Truffle's names are types of mushroom or toadstool.
- The Truffle's eyes and the top of his head glow in the dark.
- The Truffle is often depicted as having one eye despite him having two eyes on the “It Can Talk?!” and "Real Estate Agent" achievement icons.
- The Truffle's defensive weapon, the mushroom spores, have the highest DPS of any NPC.
- He is the only NPC who sways their arms side to side while walking, rather than keeping them bent the way that most other NPCs do.
- He is the only NPC that requires a specific biome to live in except for the Witch Doctor in the Nintendo version.
- The quote "You haven't seen any pigs around here have you? My brother lost his leg to one." is a reference to the historical use of pigs to locate truffles.
- The quote "As if living underground wasn't bad enough, jerks like you come in while I'm sleeping and steal my children." is a reference to players exploring Glowing Mushroom biomes and collecting Glowing Mushrooms.
- The quote "I don't know the 'Truffle Shuffle,' so stop asking!" is a reference to the movie "The Goonies".
- The quote "I tried to lick myself the other day to see what the big deal was, everything started glowing blue." references the use of mushrooms as a recreational drug.
- The quote "Everyone in this town feels a bit off. I woke up to the clothier chewing on my foot last night." implies the Clothier wants to eat the Truffle, further supported by "<Name of Clothier> has tried to eat me so many times. I swear, one time they weren't even human! I, obviously, dislike it."
- This also hints the Truffle's awareness of Clothier's former possession by Skeletron.
- The Bestiary entry for the Truffle: "Harnessing the hidden power of the glowing mushroom, the Truffle forges weapons and tools exclusively in his mushroom home."
