  • In the early Beta version, trailers and poster, illager used the texture of 1.14 Texture update, but later the head texture was changed except the illagers with decorative on its head or main character such as Arch-Illager, Royal Guards, Mage, and Iceologer.
    • Because only the head texture has been changed, the base color of Geomancer's limbs is different from the base color of its head.
    • In the later DLC, Mountaineer and its variant's faces kept using the new head texture. However in the cutscene of the Echoing Void, the End Illager's head uses the old texture.
