Worm Food is a boss-summoning item used to summon the Eater of Worlds. It can be used at any time of day, but only inside the Corruption. Attempting to use it outside the Corruption will have no effect and will not consume it.

  • Although the Crimson is considered a counterpart to the Corruption, using Worm Food in the Crimson will not do anything.
    • It is, however, still possible to summon the Eater of Worlds in a world that spawned with Crimson by artificially creating a Corruption biome (with at least (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 300 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 200 Corruption blocks), and then using the Worm Food within it.
