The Terrarium Defender is an accessory that increases maximum life and length of invincibility after taking damage, as well as providing immunity to knockback, fire blocks, and many debuffs. When the wearer is above 25% life, it grants all nearby players on their team the Paladin's Shield buff which causes 25% of any damage inflicted on them to transfer to the wearer of the shield instead. When the wearer is below 25% life, it provides them with the Terraria's Kiss buff, increasing their defense by 20 and massively increasing their life regeneration.

It provides immunity to the following debuffs:
