The Broken Hero Sword is a Hardmode crafting material. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, it has a 25*1/4 (25%) / 43.75*7/16 (43.75%) chance of being dropped by Mothron. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version 3DS version, it instead has a 0.4*1/250 (0.4%) chance of being dropped by Frankensteins and Swamp Things.

It is not a weapon itself, and therefore can neither be swung, reforged, or placed on a Weapon Rack.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Given the drop rate, it is not guaranteed to obtain one during a Solar Eclipse. Therefore, it can be a good idea to use Water Candles and/or Battle Potions during a Solar Eclipse to increase the number of opportunities of having one or even multiple Broken Hero Swords dropped.
  • Console VersionMobile version As of 1.3.0.1, it is less profitable to craft excess Broken Hero Swords into True Excaliburs. While a non-reforged True Excalibur sells for 10, its ingredients sell for 1230.This makes the True Excalibur 18.6% (230) less profitable.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is an allusion to the classic literary trope of the disgraced or defeated hero who must repair their sword, or the similar trope of taking up the weapon of a past hero (perhaps killed by the monster dropping this item) to fulfill a destiny.
