"Now, if you don't mind... BEGONE FROM MY HOARD!"

Greed is a post-Plantera tier Ancient boss that is fought in Caverns.

Summoning[edit | edit source]

Greed does not spawn on his own and the player must use the Golden Grub on his altar in Cavern of the Worm King or open 3 of the chests located there.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Attempts to charge towards the player as he travels around.
  • Summons various Ore Constructs corresponding to ores in the game, that attack the player differently depending on the type. (Such as Chlorophyte variants shooting leaf crystals, and Titanium variants occasionally going invincible for a short time after attacking)
  • Greed's segments have varying damage reduction based on the ore composing them, with his head being his weakest point, and the highest tier ores at the last segments being the toughest. Lower-rarity ores or his head should be aimed at to maximize damage.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

When summoned before defeating him[edit | edit source]

  • Who disturbs me from my coin-counting?! I'm busy-
  • ...Oooooooh...is that...?
  • You brought me my favourite dish...!
  • Now, if you don't mind...
  • BEGONE FROM MY HOARD!

If summoned by unlocking three Greed Chests[edit | edit source]

  • HANDS OFF MY LOOT YOU THIEVING APE!!!

"YOU TRY TO STEAL MY SHINIES AND NOW... I WILL STEAL YOUR LIFE!"

Once Greed is defeated after defeating Anubis; Forsaken Judge, the player is given a short moment of quiet before a glowing yellow portal appears. After some dialogue from Greed himself, Worm King Greed will appear. This is an empowered version of Greed, and is much tougher than his first phase.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Retains traits from his first phase, such as his ore-based damage reduction and burrowing around to attack.
  • Charges faster as he loses health.
  • Summons Singularities of Desire that have two attacks: They either cast gilded blasts, or charge up and shoot gilded beams.
  • Summons more powerful versions of his Ore Constructs throughout the entire battle.
  • A warning symbol appears on the screen, which will cause stalactites to rain down from the cave ceiling after a delay. Below half health, this attack will cause golden rays to rain down instead.
  • Greed periodically materializes groups of his golden loot, which eventually explode into gilded shards that slightly track the player.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

When spawning[edit | edit source]

  • YOU! YOU LITTLE--
  • WHY DO YOU REFUSE TO LEAVE ME BE?!
  • YOU TRY TO STEAL MY SHINIES AND NOW...!
  • I WILL STEAL YOUR LIFE!

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Greed's theme is Gold Digger by Universe, a remake of Drums of Desire, also by Universe.
  • Worm King Greed's theme is Ira de riquezas perdidas by Universe and OmegaFerretMusic. But in the future, this theme will be remade.
  • When Greed's base form is hit in the head (his most vulnerable part), it will change sprite while being damaged to resemble an expression of pain/irritation. This is not present in his Awakened phase.
  • Greed has increased damage reduction for each of his segments based on the strength of the ore the segment is made of, e.g his head takes the most damage but the Chlorophyte segment has very high DR. This caps out on Worm King Greed's Luminite segment that takes almost no damage.
  • Greed's segments contain ores, with each segment representing an ore available at that point in the game. Worm King Greed's body is longer, as it contains ores corresponding to the 4 Celestial Pillars and Luminite.
  • Greed's segment glow under the effects of the Spelunker Potion.
  • The portals Greed uses are actually large coin portals, implying that the smaller ones are influenced by Greed in some way.
  • Greed and The Devourer of Gods are the same species.
  • The last two quotes of normal Greed were actually different in early betas of 1.0.
    • Greed said these: "A GOLDEN GRUB!" and "WITH THE SIDE OF A TERRARIAN!"
    • Also, Worm King Greed was different in appearance in early betas of 1.0 as well. He was just like his normal appearance, but completely golden. Also, he didn't have a proper name back then, it was just Greed Awakened.
  • In the early planned concepts of this mod, Greed along with Athena and Anubis were planned to be associated with Soul of Cthulhu's storyline. But certain changes to these trio have also changed their storylines to be tied to Shen Doragon's storyline.
