Animation of the Night's Edge.
The Night's Edge is a high-end Broadsword and the strongest pre-Hardmode sword. It has about the same reach as a Muramasa. When swung, the Night's Edge emits light similar to the Fiery Greatsword and Muramasa, but the effect is more subtle and does not last as long.
The best modifier for this weapon is Legendary.
- Before the 1.1 update, it was the strongest sword of the game, although it has been dethroned since. 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.
- The four swords used to craft it all represent a major pre-Hardmode biome: The Blade of Grass representing the Jungle, the Muramasa the Dungeon, the Fiery Greatsword The Underworld, and the Light's bane/Blood butcherer the Corruption/Crimson.
- Sprite altered.
- Damage increased from 40 to 42.
- Attack speed increased from very slow to average.
- 1.0.5: Introduced.
