Terraria Chronicles by Tetra Midna 68
  • Recommended by UltimateBrawl
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: I have a new land to explore, but this time I haven't been thrown into the deep end. This time I'm already an experienced miner and swordsman, and I'm already the Hero of Terraria. This is a chance to start again. But the Guide had to come along too, didn't he?

  • Comments: Not only is the Fic well-written, it handles much of Terraria's aspects well, such as why death is not permanent. Worth your time.
  • Pairings: None yet.

A Hero's Game by Sensei 200

  • Recommended by: Black Mage
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An unnamed OC gets thrown in the world of Terraria and subsequently becomes the hero of it. The fic is a bit gory when it comes to characters getting wounded and also kills characters off.
  • Pairings: Only the semi-canon ones that appear in game exist.
  • Tags: Gore, OC.

There are no days off in Terraria by thecupcakefox

  • Recommended by: Meta_Akira
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: There comes a point when the hero thinks she's reached a state of comfortability. Her goal was to keep her villagers safe. She never expected King Slime to join them, and she would never be prepared for the calamities of hard mode.

  • Comments: Very well-written, with very realistic emotion put into it. Has its share of both laughs and gut-punches.
  • Pairings: Player/King Slime (no not the blob of slime, the guy inside of it), canonically suggested pairings

Goodbye from a Guide by PaperLaur

  • Recommended by: spudwalt
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A letter from the Guide, written as the player prepares to face the Wall of Flesh.
  • Comments: Short and sweet. Written from the perspective of a man facing his end with the confidence that what he has helped to build will endure and thrive.
  • Pairings: None.


Crossover Fanfiction

The Moon Wars by Wachichas (Link)

  • Recommended by: leafsaber47
  • Crossover with: Overlord (2012)
  • Status: Dormant; last updated March 2019
  • Synopsis: Unsatisfied with completely blighting Terraria, the Corruption, Crimson, and Hallow enter the New World. Amongst the chaos, Ainz Ooal Gown and the Great Tomb of Nazarick examine the disaster and take on the invasion while outsiders arrive at the scene.
  • Comments: A interesting read that sports some unfortunate grammatical and conventional errors, but the harrowing upgrades on the bosses and enemies of Terraria was just enough to leave an impression on me. A great crossover fanfic nonetheless.
  • Pairings: Unknown.

Terraria: Remnant Mod by Imaginationburstingout (Link)

  • Recommended by: NlaEid
  • Crossover with: RWBY
  • Status: Hiatus (as of Jul 2020)
  • Synopsis: While I must admit that Terraria is one of my favourite games out there, it's starting to get rather boring. I'd already beaten the Moon Lord three times, collected its loot, sell any duplicates. I hope they would come up with a new update soon; perhaps like a new boss or a new world! For now though, I have to settle with this unheard mod called 'Remnant'. Could be interesting...
  • Comments: A decently written crack-fic that follows the shenanigans of an overpowered, player-controlled, and end-game terrarian in Remnant. It is terraria-centric, and those coming from the RWBY side of things may miss the importance of some story elements. The RWBY characters are flanderized, but it is excusable if one reads it as a crack fic.
  • Pairings: Terrarian/Amber.

Webcomics, Videos, and Fanart

The Legend of Maxx, by Jesse McMin

  • Recommended by UltimateBrawl
  • Status: Dead. (Killed off by the author... for now)
    • Not anymore!
  • Synopsis: Maxx is a human with a serious lack of common sense, but is somehow the Chosen One. Follow the adventures of him and the various people joining his group as they adventure to save Terraria from an evil virus, and free the Hallow from its seal.
  • Comments: Even those who don't play the game will enjoy this hilarious sprite comic. Those who do, I highly reccomend it.
  • Pairings: OC/Dryad (one-sided, the Dryad has no interest)

How well does it match the trope?
