We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

Pepper Rexes are an enemy found in the Skull Cavern. They appear primarily on Prehistoric floors, but can appear rarely on other floors.


They slowly move around the cave floor and belch flame blasts at the player when they get too close.


Pepper Rexes pause their movement and continually shoot in one direction when attacking. Use this time to quickly side step the fire and begin attacking them.

During the pause in movement before their attack, Pepper Rexes can quickly turn around if the player moves to one of their sides too quickly. The best strategy to counter this is to stand diagonally next to the Pepper Rex until it begins its attack, and then attack the side they are not shooting from.
