Wilba is a playable Character exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. She is the daughter of Queen Malfalfa, making her the Princess of the Pig kingdom. She has also inherited the curse of being a Werepig from her father. Wilba is the only Hamlet character that cannot be unlocked via Experience.
Wilba starts as a passive, non-attacking Mob in the Souvenir Shop located two rooms to the left in the Royal Palace on the second island. She tells the player that she lost the Royal Crown and is therefore grounded. The player must kill the Queen Womant and mine it's throne with a Pickaxe to get the Royal Crown. Return the Royal Crown to the Pig Queen. Once the player does this, Wilba will be unlocked as a playable character and disappear from her room.
Wilba starts with the Silver Necklace, which will prevent Wilba from turning into a Werepig when wearing, but will drain Sanity instead. However, after Wilba is already in Werepig form, she is unable to put on the necklace, so it cannot reverse the form once it has begun.
As Wilba is a pig princess, pigs will not panic or attack her for stealing, such as picking Grass or Flowers from farms. In addition, pigs will occasionally gift her basic resources (Twigs, Flint, Rocks, Grass, Logs and Seeds). She can do whatever she pleases in Pig Towns. This included hammering any buildings or structures. However, Royal Guards will still retaliate if she attacks them or a Pig Trader near them. Pigs in the base game will also give Wilba basic resources. In the Shipwrecked DLC, Wildbores will never attack Wilba if she is near them multiple times. Hammering their house makes them attempt to attack her, however.
Like Webber, she can eat monster meats (Monster Meat, Bean Bugs and Gummy Slugs, including cooked and dried variations) without receiving negative effects on health and sanity. If two are eaten she will turn into Werewilba unless wearing the silver necklace.
Wilba is afraid of the dark, and will lose Sanity at 1.5 times the normal rate in darkness. Coupled with her low maximum Sanity of 100, this makes it possible to quickly switch between sane and insane states.
- In the early days, the easiest way to restore the sanity lost from darkness is to collect Flowers and Seashells while exploring.

Wilba's player character quotes can be found here.
- Wilba was added to the Early Access of Don't Starve: Hamlet on November 8, 2018.
- Wilba's voice is played by an Ocarina
- In the forum post introducing her as a playable character, she is described as follows: "Daughter to Queen Malfalfa, Princess Wilba has the love of hn the world exploring and soaking up life, even if she still requires a nightlight when she gets tucked in."
- Wilba's style of speech is a parody of archaic (Shakespeare's) English. Other Hamlet Pigs also speak this way.
- The player is able to kill Wilba before unlocking her in the Palace. She will drop one Pig Skin and one Meat. Once she has been killed, she will never respawn, forcing the player to create another world to unlock her.
- Before the Character Update, her perks read as follows: "Is a pig. Is royalty. Is afraid of the dark."
- Wilba, Wormwood, Wortox, and Wurt may be the first survivors to originate from the Constant itself and not the real world like the others.
- Her hair, skirt, and bow have bones, as shown when struck by lightning.
- Wilba may be a reference to the protagonist of Charlotte's Web due to the fact she is also a pig, and similarly named "Wilbur".
- If Wilba drops a coin (from her inventory or from hammering down a decoration) and a guard picks it up, all nearby guards will attack the thieving guard.
- The text that follows completing Adventure Mode as Wilba will use masculine pronouns.
- When she is on a Boat, she will not turn into a Werepig. She will turn once she exits the Boat and a new phase of the Day begins.
