Animation of the Night's Edge.
The Night's Edge is a high-end Broadsword, the strongest sword pre-Hardmode. It has about the same reach as a Muramasa. When swung, the Night's Edge emits light similar to the Fiery Greatsword, but the effect is more subtle and does not last as long.
The best modifier for this weapon is Legendary.
- Before the 1.1 patch, it was the strongest sword of the game. With said update, this title was taken by Excalibur, which has since been dethroned by many more swords in the 1.2 update. Despite this, it's still the strongest sword pre-Hardmode.
- The Night's Edge is the only item crafted at a demon altar that isn't a boss summoning item. It is widely considered the most powerful item that can be crafted at a Demon Altar.
- It is more profitable to sell the four different swords required to craft the Night's Edge than to sell the completed sword.
- Sprite altered.
- Damage increased from 40 to 42.
- Attack speed increased from very slow to average.
- 1.0.5: Introduced.
