The Broken Hero Sword is a Hardmode crafting material. It is not itself a weapon and cannot be swung, reforged or placed on a Weapon Rack. It is dropped during the Solar Eclipse event, but what it drops from varies by platform.

On the Pc only.png Desktop version, the Broken Hero Sword has a 25% (30.94%) chance of being dropped by Mothron, which starts to spawn after all three Mechanical Bosses have been defeated. On the Console only.png Console versions and Mobile only.pngMobile versions, it is instead dropped by Frankensteins and Swamp Things, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance to drop. Frankenstein and Swamp Thing spawn during a Solar Eclipse.

  • This item is an allusion to the classic literary trope of the disgraced or defeated hero who must repair their sword, or the similar trope of taking up the weapon of a past hero (perhaps killed by the monster dropping this item) to fulfill a destiny.
