Top Ten Terraria NPCs

The Top Ten
1 Truffle

If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't get the hover board! And we can all agree the coolness of the hover board. He's kinda cute too...

It is worth the hassle because it looks awesome and sells great items.

Build in mushroom land easy.

Ugh... Truffle is awful.

2 Goblin Tinkerer

Don't forget about him honestly I think he is alright but it was a hassle getting him out of the dungeon.

"Yo, I heard you like rockets and running shoes, so I put rockets in your running shoes." I love this guy.

He is my favorite for reforge option he sells the rocket boots and he is a smart nerd like me also he is part of the dating thing (there's only 4 NPCS that are part of dating nurse and arms dealer. And goblin with mechanic :D

A fellow strategist and creator. Also, he's short like me.

3 Witch Doctor

Really generous. Sells fountains for free. Witch Doctor also looks super epic.

4 Mechanic

Honestly, I'm a big mechanism geek, and I wouldn't have wires if it wasn't for her.

5 Wizard

Sells mana potions which are OP if you are specializing in mage. Also gives the crystal ball and spell tomes all essentials for a good wizard playthrough.

He doesn't sell extra stuff in events, but some of his stuff is really useful.

6 Arms Dealer

Pew pew. Without him there would be no Megashark or Onyx Blaster.

Deals you arms

Some of his stuff is good and I mini shark crafts my favorite item (mega shark)

7 Clothier

Sells great vanity clothes. But, he's only good for showing off.

8 Merchant

Sells okay items. I always get annoyed when he blocks my chests.

Without him I wouldn't ever have gotten bait.

9 Steampunker

She looks awesome with her outfit, the steampunk wings are awesome and the teleporter is great for travelling. The jetpack is also nice and the clentaminator and the green solution is very useful and the steampunk outfit she sells looks nice on the protaganist.

10 Guide

I just like seeing the moron open doors an accidentally letting the zombies in.
It gets better when it's time to summon the wall of flesh and I hang a painting of it in his house.

I agree. Well, at least new people do. My guide in my main world, Jeffery, Isn't useful. I already have the strongest items.

Really helps when I found a random item and don't know what does.

Seriously, without him I wouldn't have crafted my meteor staff.

The Contenders
11 Nurse

Helps you with righting

This is easily the best NPC in the game; super useful during boss fights!

12 Dryad

The easy way of summoning the Eater of Worlds / Brain of Cthulhu.

She is my girlfriend

She's smokin' hot.

13 Demolitionist

This dude give me bombs

14 Angler
15 Party Girl

Cute, fun, and excited about everything. She is definitely a novelty NPC, but her attitude is amazing and she loves partying. What else could you want?

16 Cyborg
17 Moon Lord

Oh, yes! I remember making the house and Moon Lord not being able to fit in it! He sold me so many things so that he could kill me! Ah yes, the good old times before Killed him!

Ah, I loved it when the Moon Lord moved into that house I built for him and started selling me all sorts of cool stuff. Very good!

18 Bunny

I don't care what you gonna say. I don't care if it's not an NPC, it's a bunny. And killing bunnies is cruel. Period.

19 Painter

This may sound weird, and goblin tinkerer is probably better, but the painter is great! He sells tons of paint, which you can combine with paint, and paint any block! He offers so much creativity. Say you like the look of cobalt brick, but you want it red. He can do that. Gold brick walls look nice, but what if they were black? You can do that! Not only this, but he also sells different paintings, some depending on the biome he is in. This is great for decoration if you are building a house in a certain biome, such as in the sky or in the desert. He sells one more thing though, an assortment of wallpapers. These are unlike any kind of wallpaper, as you can have a rainbow wall to a duck wall, to make houses feel more comfortable then war ground.

I was able to get the paintball gun for a special challenge I was doing; and the infinite ammo, the decent arced range, and decent crit rate, and that it's a 3 shot burst like my second favourite gun: The clockwork assault rifle. Allowed me to spend a good hour to help my eventually take down the dungeon guardian to get my favourite pet.

Plus I honestly do like painting it really helps me out with making a Boreal Wood table with normal wood chairs the same colour but different design all the more better for house/base building and decoration.

I would personally rank higher.

20 Stylist

The default hairstyles Suck And it kinda easy to find.

21 Zombies
22 Mimics
23 Lost Girl/Nymph
24 Astronomer

I remember this guy. He's cool. He likes Space.

What? There's no astronomer
