|— Player Journal Description|
Melon golems resembled normal snow golems except for having a carved melon in place of a carved pumpkin. The red interior of the melon was visible through the mouth hole, and they had the ability to change their facial expression.
Melon golems functioned nearly the same as snow golems by placing snow wherever they walked and attacking hostile mobs with projectiles. In fact, the only differences between the two are that the melon golem had face animations, a different head which wasn't able to be snipped off with shears, and it launched melon seed projectiles instead of snowballs at enemies. Additionally, they shot a burst of 4 melon seed projectiles when attacking. They also moved by hopping around. They weren't hostile toward tropical slimes.
Melon seed projectile
Melon golems were found in grass and pond tappables with an uncommon rarity and a chance of 1.1% from grass tappables, and 1.8% from pond. They weren't able to be created by placing a full melon on top of two vertically stacked snow blocks, differing them from their snow golem counterparts.
