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 launches a slow, non-piercing fireball that ricochets up to four times (but not off of platforms), dissipating on the fifth. It has a 50% chance of inflicting the On Fire! debuff for five (ten) 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.
  • It does not pierce multiple enemies.
  • 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 VersionConsole Version 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.
