"The harvest moon glows eerily."
Nightmare Fuel is a post-Moon Lord crafting material dropped by most Pumpkin Moon enemies after The Devourer of Gods has been defeated. It is almost always used in conjunction with or as an alternative to Endothermic Energy, with the only exceptions being Statis' Void Sash, Penumbra, Corvid Harbinger Staff, and Nightmare Dye.
Crafting all items (excluding those used for items crafted from Auric Tesla Bars or for the Cosmilite weapons requiring any Seasonal Energy) requires 475 Nightmare Fuel. This would require defeating the Pumpking 24–48 times. Crafting all items (including the Cosmilite weapons) would raise the requirement to 519 Nightmare fuel (requires defeating the Pumpking 26–52 times).

- "Nightmare fuel" is an informal term used to refer to highly disturbing content.
- The tooltip may be a reference to the item of the same name from the game Don't Starve, which is obtained from insanity based creatures.
