The Broken Hero Sword is a high-tier Hardmode material that is used for the highest tier sword, the Terra Blade, however cannot be used by itself offensively. The Broken Hero Sword has a 1 in 250 chance (0.4%) of dropping from either a Frankenstein or Swamp Thing during a Solar Eclipse, which can only happen in a Hardmode world.

[edit] Tips

  • Given the drop rate, and that three Broken Hero Swords are needed to craft the Terra Blade, it can be a good idea for high tier characters to use Water Candles and/or Battle Potions during a solar eclipse, to increase the player's chances of getting three.

[edit] Trivia

  • This item may be an allusion to the classic literary trope of the disgraced or defeated hero who must repair their sword.
  • It may also be an allusion to the similar trope of taking up the weapon of a past hero (perhaps killed by the monster dropping this item) to fulfill a destiny.
  • It is likely this is a reference to the Zelda games, as the hilt is similarly shaped to the one on the master sword, and the in game version of links clothes is called the hero's clothes.
  • It could also be a reference to Lord Of The Rings, as the sprite looks similar to the broken sword Narsil.
