Merm Heads are decorative structures usually found around Pig Villages or randomly in Swamps. They are severed Merm heads on sticks stuck in the ground, similar to Pig Heads.
Destroying a Merm Head with a Hammer drops 2 Rot and 2 Twigs. Deconstructing a Merm Head with a Deconstruction Staff drops 4 Rot and 4 Twigs, although It can not be constructed.
Reign of Giants
During a Full Moon in the Reign of Giants DLC, Merm Heads will open their eyes. The eyes glow during this time. The heads will generate an insanity aura and drop Nightmare Fuel when destroyed.
The Merm Head during a Full Moon in Reign of Giants
- Merm Heads can be found around the Pig Villages, while Pig Heads can be found around the Merm camps. This might symbolize the war between Pigs and Merms.
- When Wolfgang examines a Merm Head, he says, "What a handsome devil!", which is identical to what Wilson says about a Meat Effigy.
