The Wall Creeper is a spider-like enemy that can be found in caverns, spawning in and around Spider Nests, mostly in pre-Hardmode worlds. Wall Creepers are capable of climbing background walls as well as (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) through platforms, but revert to acting like a fighter enemy when there is no background wall.


  • They can be found in large quantities in Spider Nests. These caves can be identified by large amounts of Cobwebs surrounding the cave's walls.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, Wall Creepers can still spawn, albeit rarely, in Hardmode. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version versions, Black Recluses completely replaces them once Hardmode starts. Unless the player has obtained a Wall Creeper Statue, the Wall Creeper Banner will be unobtainable in a world that has already entered Hardmode.
  • Like all spiders, Wall Creepers cannot travel through a 2-tile wide shaft.
  • They crawl through 1 tile wide/tall holes in background walls.


  • A quote of the Skeleton Merchant(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) suggests that he may have become skeletal due to this spider.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Wall Creeper: "They have eight legs, eight eyes, and eight ways to cocoon and feast upon an unsuspecting victim."
