Butterflies are harmless insects commonly found in Grasslands. They spawn from Flowers and Evil Flowers and will slowly flutter around the map. Butterflies often land on other flowers when they come across them. At night they will return to a nearby flower to hide. Butterflies usually drop Butterfly Wings when killed (98% chance), and occasionally drop Butter instead (2% chance). They take one blast from the Ice Staff to be frozen. They are considered innocent creatures and killing one adds 1 point to the player's naughtiness level, which can cause Krampus to appear.
When being approached, Butterflies fly away therefore they are quite difficult to catch. The best time to attack them is when they stop land. This means hunting in an area with lots of flowers will provide many more opportunities to hit them; they will be on the plant for a few seconds, giving you the opportunity to attack them. Butterflies also sometimes flutter around in place and can be easily hit. Walking close to a flower seems to spawn a Butterfly more frequently.
Being insects, Butterflies can be caught in a Bug Net; the only weapon/tool that has the range to hit a moving Butterfly. When captured they become an item in inventory which stacks to 20.
Butterflies can be used to plant new Flowers by right-clicking them on the ground. Planting Flowers is useful for creating butterfly farms, or for providing Bees with extra flowers to produce Honey faster.
