The Toxicatfish is a Pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Sulphurous Sea and in the first layer of the Abyss. It swims peacefully until the player comes near or hits it. It attacks by swimming towards the player in an attempt to hurt them.


  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Toxicatfish: "Though these fish once threatened none other than their prey, the radiation from nuclear waste generated from Draedon’s old experiments has rotted both their bodies and minds. Attacking anything that comes near, this once flourishing species is now on the verge of extinction."
