Merm Heads are decorative structures usually found around Pig Villages or randomly in Swamps. They are severed Merm heads on sticks planted in the ground, similar to Pig Heads.

Destroying a Merm Head with a Hammer drops 2 Rot and 2 Twigs. Deconstructing a Merm Head with a Deconstruction Staff drops 4 Rot and 4 Twigs, although it cannot be constructed.

During a Full Moon in the Reign of Giants DLC, Merm Heads' eyes will open and glow white and drop Nightmare Fuel when destroyed.

  • Merm Heads can be found around the Pig Villages, while Pig Heads can be found around the Merm camps. This might symbolize the war between Pigs and Merms.
  • When Wolfgang examines a Merm Head, he says, "What a handsome devil!", which is identical to what Wilson says about a Meat Effigy.
