I am interested in renaming my characters and worlds. Is that possible?

I have looked through the UI and could not find a way.

It is possible, but it requires external tools to do so. There are various inventory editors that let you change your player's name and appearance. And, of course, there are tools like TEdit that let you edit a world including the name.

Changing the profile/world filename will not rename the world and those files are not in plain text so normal text editor will not do.

I ended up using the first linked editor (TSGE) to modify my character's name. It was incredibly quick and easy. – Colin D Oct 11 '13 at 12:11

Terrasavr allows you to upload a character save file, edit it, and download it again. It has a wide range of features, and does not require installing any external tools.

You can find your character in Documents/My Games/Terraria.

It does not support world files.
