They're like little fires in my pocket!

–Willow

Fireflies are passive light-producing Mobs that appear at night in Forest and Grassland Biomes and all the time in Caves, mainly in Mushtree Forests. They are used to make the Miner Hat and Pumpkin Lantern. Fireflies can also be used to refuel Miner Hats and Lanterns by 39%.

Fireflies can be captured with a Bug Net by pressing the Spacebar when nearby. Because they do not respawn, they are considered a finite resource.

Standing in Firefly light resets the timer in which Charlie will attack during the night, though the light from Fireflies will disappear until the player leaves their vicinity. If the player does not have a source of fire, that player may "firefly hop" between three or four groups of Fireflies for survival during the night. This can still be dangerous, as Sanity will drop significantly.

Releasing Fireflies near a Fire Pit or other key locations in one's base camp might come in handy, as glowing light will indicate their positions in total darkness of the night.

Fireflies on the ground will take up space, so the player is unable to build in that spot unless they are caught.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Fireflies are found abundantly in Deciduous Forest Biomes, making it one of their natural habitats.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • Despite Maxwell's quote when examining the Miner Hat ("Eventually the Firefly will starve"), Fireflies are one of the few creatures that don't starve in the inventory.
  • Before mid-June 2014, Fireflies were included in the drop table for Tumbleweed.[1]
