Shuriken are thrown Consumable weapons that can pierce several enemies. Shuriken have a 50% chance of being retrievable again after use, even if they've hit enemies. Shuriken can be found in pots and chests around the world, and can be purchased from the Merchant for 15 Copper Coin each. Since Shuriken are easy to obtain, they are an effective early game ranged weapon.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like Boomerangs, Shuriken can be thrown through single-block-thick walls, at certain angles.
  • As Shurikens both pierce and are affected by gravity, they can be thrown upwards to damage an enemy multiple times.
