"This mischievous gourd likes to pop out of the ground and scare you right out of your pants. Hail to the pumpkin song!" — Pet Journal descriptionSinister Squashlings are a type of vanity pet players can obtain during Hallow's End, World of Warcraft's version of Halloween. It is a random drop from the Handful of Treats item a player can grab once an hour from various buckets of candy in each town, or as a rare drop from the Loot-Filled Pumpkin dropped after killing the Headless Horseman. It can also be found in the Crudely Wrapped Gifts that spawn if players successfully free one of the towns from the Shade of the Horseman.
Like all companion pets, it can be used in pet battles.
- Its leg-like roots collapse and it looks like a Jack-o-lantern during its idle animation.
- It is one of the items needed for the Sinister Calling achievement.
