The Holy Hand Grenade is a thrown explosive. It is an upgraded version of Dynamite and has double the range. Similar to Dynamite, it destroys blocks and items, excluding those that are explosion-proof.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although it is called a "Grenade", it destroys blocks like a Bomb.
  • The fuse time is roughly 5 seconds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Holy Hand Grenade originates from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, where Saint Attila requested God to bless a grenade, becoming the "Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch". ("O lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayest blow thy enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.")
    • This particular iteration of the item comes from the Worms games, a series of turn-based strategy games developed by Team-17, with the same "Hallelujah!" sound effect and massive destruction potential. A few other 3DS-exclusive items are drawn from this game series as well, most obvious among them being the Suspicious Looking Apple.
  • It is one of the few pre-Hardmode items with a rarity of Rarity level: 7.
  • This item currently deals the highest weapon base damage among all versions of Terraria.
  • When detonated, a "Hallelujah!" sound effect plays.
