The main purpose of a Fairy in Terraria is to lead the player to a useful item or object like a chest, a Life Crystal, a Strange Plant, or an ore vein. There is a popular myth that the color determines the chances of what kind of values the creature will lead the hero to. But the fact is that it is not correct.
As soon as the Fairy notices the player, she flies up to him and starts spinning. After that, the creature will lead him to the treasure and will wait if the hero suddenly falls behind. Upon reaching the goal, the Fairy will disappear. You can also catch the Fairy with the Bug Net, take it with you and release it in the place where you want to find the treasure. Also, this creature can be combined with an empty bottle, creating something similar to decoration.
If you want Fairies to constantly appear in your world, never touch Fallen Logs in forest biomes, as they are the resurrection point for these creatures.
