The Magic Mirror's animation.

The Magic Mirror is a unique item that returns a player to their spawn point. When used, a short animation plays before instantly transporting the user to their set spawn point; if the player has previously used a Bed they will appear in front of it, but if no valid bed is found the user will instead return to the world's natural spawn point. This transportation occurs at no cost, and can be repeated indefinitely without consuming the Magic/Ice Mirror.

An Ice Mirror is a variation on the Magic Mirror. Aside from appearance, it is identical to an ordinary Magic Mirror in every capacity, including acting as a valid component for a Cell Phone.

Magic Mirrors can be found in Chests generated in the Underground and Cavern layers. On the Mobile only.pngMobile version, it can also be found as secondary loot in any type of chest on the Surface.

Ice Mirrors can be found in Ice Chests generated in Underground Snow on the Desktop Version Desktop version and Console Version Console version.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While nearly identical in function to a Recall Potion, the Magic Mirror has a noticeable startup delay.
  • Solid blocks placed over the world's spawn point will be destroyed when the player arrives in order to make room. These blocks will break as if they were mined normally and can be picked up and replaced.
  • Teleporting out of the Underworld with a Magic Mirror while under the Horrified debuff from the Wall of Flesh causes the player to die on arrival, with the death message '{Name of Player} tried to escape'.
  • Fall height will be reset when the Magic Mirror is used, allowing it to be used as a means to avoid lethal falls.
  • On the Mobile only.pngMobile version in singleplayer, the player can use a Magic Mirror, go inside their inventory, then replace the Magic Mirror with any other item, and the Magic Mirror will not be used. Instead, the new item held will have the Magic Mirror's animation for a few seconds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Due to their reflective properties, mirrors play a powerful role in cultural literature and are often depicted as magical in nature. In video games, it is common for them to be used as a magical means of transportation between distant locations, into secret spaces or even into other dimensions.
  • The mirror has one of the largest base use times in the game, and is one of few that are called "snail".
