Ashes are an Item that is dropped after a flammable object has been burnt by Fire, including the remnants of a Campfire and a destroyed Pig Torch or Fire Pit. Ashes will also replace any item that is not allowed to be carried through to the next World via the Teleportato (e.g. the Eye Bone or Webber's Skull). Ashes are an ingredient for crafting Healing Salve. Moleworms will eat them like rocks.

Mobs that are killed by fire will drop Ashes in place of any flammable item in their loot table or the cooked version of their Meats. Red Hounds always drop 3 Ashes when killed. Ashes are blown away by the wind after being on the ground for 20 seconds (picking it up and then dropping it again resets the timer). Burning a stack of items will yield the same amount of Ashes. For example, burning 40 Twigs will result in 40 Ashes.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, the Dragonfly will burn any flammable objects to turn them into Ashes to eat. After eating 20 Ashes, she will fall asleep.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Ashes can be obtained when Ash Trees are chopped in the Volcano or when a Lava Pool is allowed to extinguish naturally. Ashes are required to fertilize Coffee Plants and Elephant Cacti. Additionally, any flammable items put inside of fire Packim Baggims will be turned into Ashes upon closing and opening it again.
