The Flower of Fire being used.

The Flower of Fire is a pre-Hardmode magic weapon that can be found in Shadow Chests in The Underworld. It can also be found in the Obsidian Lock BoxDesktop and Mobile versions found in Obsidian CratesDesktop and Mobile versions and Hellstone CratesDesktop and Mobile versions. It launches a slow, non-piercing fireball that ricochets up to four times, dissipating on the fifth. It has a 50% chance of inflicting the On Fire! debuff for five seconds.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Flower of Fire cannot be used under liquid and will not use mana, and dissipates instantly on contact with water or honey.
  • The Flower of Fire does exceptionally high damage for a pre-Hardmode weapon. Prior to Hardmode, it is second only to the Star Cannon in per-hit damage, and even rivals many high-tier Hardmode weapons in that statistic.
  • It can be reforged often because of its low value, making an already powerful item much more useful.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to the Flower of Frost, this item is a reference to the Super Mario Brothers franchise, in which the "Fire Flower" is a power-up that gives the player ability to throw similar bouncing fireballs.
  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions The Wizard NPC hurls fireballs at enemies in his vicinity in a similar fashion to the Flower of Fire.
  • The light produced by the fireball is red, while the light produced from the trail is white and the light from the explosion is orange.
