The Terra Blade is a top-tier Hardmode Sword, currently with the highest base per-hit damage of any Sword in Terraria. It auto-swings, and fires a green Sword projectile that costs no Mana or Ammunition and can pierce up to three Mobs. Does not auto-swing on current console version.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.

  • The Terra Blade can pass through an infinite stack of enemies as it swings, but the sword's sword beam can only pass through two enemies, vanishing after damaging a third.
  • The projectile's range is about 5000 feet (2500 blocks) before vanishing.
  • The velocity of the projectile is improved by melee speed modifiers.
  • If a Flask is buffing the character, the buff will also apply to the sword's projectile.
  • Console only.png The Terra Blade's projectile seems to consume minuscule amounts of Mana (very, very much less than 1. One Mana consumed has been proved possible with Magical Harp).
  • Its projectile can glitch through sloped blocks at certain angles.
  • In order to craft a Terra Blade from scratch, you need 12 Hallowed Bars, 40 Demonite or Crimtane Ore, 12 Jungle Spores, 15 Stingers, a Muramasa, 60 Hellstone, 20 Obsidian, and 3 Broken Hero Swords. You need a Mythril Anvil or an Orichalcum Anvil, a Hellforge (or higher tier Furnace) and a Demon Altar to craft everything.
  • Console only.png In the Console Version of Terraria the Terra Blade does not auto-swing.
  • Mobile only.png The projectile does more damage than the Terra Blade itself.
