The Skeleton Merchant is an NPC vendor that randomly spawns in the Cavern layer. Enemies will not spawn near him (same in 1.4) . He will not move into a vacant house if one is available, similar to the Traveling Merchant and the Old Man. He will despawn when off-screen, unlike the others, making him the only NPC that despawns once off-screen.
Unlike other NPCs, the Skeleton Merchant does not have a map icon. A Hunter Potion will highlight him.

- Despite similar mechanics, the Skeleton Merchant is not considered a town NPC in regards to reducing enemy spawns. He does, however, count as seven NPCs for the sake of enemy spawn limits when spawning NPCs, mechanically similar to bosses. In most cases this effectively blocks virtually anything from spawning, including critters. This creates a problem when the player is preparing to farm monsters in the Underground or Cavern layers. It is necessary to have a strong external damage source (lava, Boulders, Lihzahrd traps) to kill him to continue farming, or just go far enough for him to despawn. This may not apply to 1.4- needs further testing (recluse farm, expert, corruption biome still spawns spiders when skeleton merchant is in the safe box, at least.)
- If a player notices a suspiciously low number of enemies on their radar it could be a sign that the Skeleton Merchant has spawned.
- If a player speaks to the Skeleton Merchant, he will stop attacking enemies around himself and stand still. This will allow most non-skeletal enemies to kill him.
- 不像其他 NPC，他无法用传送枪或国王雕像传送，也不会溺死。有时他会在水塘里生成。
- The Skeleton Merchant does not attack skeletal enemies, nor will they harm him via contact damage. Skeleton Archers, however, may shoot him by accident if the player is behind the Skeleton Merchant. This will only deal one damage to the Skeleton Merchant (or two if it is a critical hit). Some other enemies, such as bosses like the Golem, will also not cause him to attack, though they can still damage him via contact. If he gets cornered by a Biome Mimic, he will be quickly killed.
- Skeletron is an exception as both will attack each other.
- He cannot be killed by explosives deployed by the player. However, he may spawn in front of a Detonator or pressure plate explosive trap. Because of his bulkier appearance, players interacting with him may unwillingly hit the plunger on the detonator trap, killing both him and the player.
• If there is a bunny in the caverns it is a sign that the skeleton merchant is near.验证

- 话语“你肯定想不到大家扔了些什么给我...想买点？（You would not believe some of the things people throw at me... Wanna buy some of it?）”引用了动作角色扮演游戏《暗黑破坏神3（Diablo III）》中的一个叫做小贩斯奎特（Squirt the Peddler ）的年轻拾荒者。斯奎特会周期性的用这个问题的一个接近完全一样的变体询问玩家，其中只是把“人们扔给我的东西（things people throw at me）”改成了“人们不要的东西（things people throw away）”。（注：在《暗黑破坏神3》中，这句对话确切的官方英文与简体中文分别为“I can't believe what people throw away. Wanna buy some of it?”和“人们连这种好东西都丢掉不要,太离谱了,想不想买一点啊? ”）
