The Rainbow Rod is a Hardmode magic weapon that launches a controllable projectile, similar to the Flamelash or Magic Missile, and can be considered an upgraded version of them. The projectile is white, with slight traces of rainbow, and emits a good deal of light that rotates through the entire color spectrum. Unlike the Flamelash, the Rainbow Rod's projectile can move through water without dissipating, as well as lava. It can be controlled for up to one minute before dissipating. The Rainbow Rod is obtained from crafting.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
