Gravitation Potion is a buff potion which buffs the player with Gravitation. This buff allows the player to invert gravity with the up key (W by default), making the screen appear upside-down, fall upwards, and walk on ceilings. The effect can be toggled while in midair.

The effect lasts for 3 minutes, but can be cancelled at any time by right-clicking the buff icon.

Gravitation in 1.2[edit]

The gravitation effect was changed greatly with the 1.2 update. From 1.2 onward, instead of the player flipping upside-down, the player stays put on the screen, and the view of the world flips upside-down. The down key no longer returns gravity to normal; instead, the up key does this. Relative to the flipped view, other entities appear to fall upward. The minimap is not flipped. Be aware that as of 1.2.3, player control ceases when the full screen map is active.

  • While flipping gravity resets your fall distance, this potion does not negate fall damage on its own. Featherfall potions, wings, a Lucky Horseshoe or an Obsidian Horseshoe will make using Gravitation potions a lot safer.
  • Falling upwards to the map's height limit will not damage you, but it is possible to die by smacking into the underside of a Floating Island, or any other ceiling.
  • Falling to the map's height limit will automatically flip you right-side up.
  • The sound effect of the player flipping gravity has the same sound effect of the Shadow Orb (item), Vilethorn, and Demon Scythe as well as when a Fire Imp teleports.
Anomaly.png Anomaly The player can not land or walk on Wood Platforms when gravity is reversed.
Anomaly.png Anomaly The player does not get sped up on Asphalt Blocks when gravity is reversed.
Anomaly.png Anomaly When upside-down, summoning minions on screen is reversed (to summon at the bottom you need to click on top of screen)
Anomaly.png Anomaly The player won't slide on Frozen Slime Blocks when gravity is reversed.
Bug.png Bug When combined with hoverboard and hermes boots after you have drunk the potion, then once you flip and run then you will run forever with the hermes boots animation.
Bug.png Bug Flight time can be refreshed while still in the air. By running and falling down (or flying up on the player's view), flight time can be reset indefinitely.]]
Bug.png Bug Using Gravitation Potions on hammered platforms will make the player rapidly (one frame of animation) "fall" and land.
Bug.png Bug Once you have hit the "ground" with the gravitation effect, if you begin hovering in background (walls or other things that you can go through), you will continuously move up (or down in normal terms) until you hit the "ceiling".


  • It is helpful for finding Floating Islands by hovering up and down at the right altitude.
  • Gravitation effectively surpasses the Rocket Boots and Wings combination as the air travel method with the most range, though it is more difficult to control as a flight method.


  • 1.2: The Gravitation effect now flips the view of the world, rather than the character's sprite.
  • 1.0.5: Introduced.
