The World Feeder is a Hardmode worm-like enemy which spawns in The Corruption, and can be considered the Hardmode counterpart of the Devourer, though it is not as common and has an eyeball on every segment of its body. Loot is dropped from the head segment, so it can get stuck and buried deep in blocks if one of the main body parts is killed first.

  • The World Feeder has 21–26 body segments.[1]
  • Despite dropping Cursed Flames, it neither inflicts nor is immune to the Cursed Inferno debuff.


  • As with all worms, debuffs and piercing or area-of-effect damage are very effective, as the enemy consists of numerous vulnerable targets.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the World Feeder: "Ancient magicks have unleashed the dark influences that gave birth to the Eater of Worlds, producing smaller, but just as deadly worms."
  • This is probably why it bears such a resemblance to the Eater of Worlds.


  • Desktop 1.4.4: Monster Meat drop rate reduced from 1/1000 to 1/1500. In Don't Starve seeds, changed from 1/200 to 1/500.
