The Thorn Chakram is a boomerang that returns to its user after reaching its maximum distance or hitting an enemy. It differs from most other boomerangs in that it does not necessarily return immediately when impacting an object, but instead can ricochet off solid surfaces (including platforms) before returning. The Thorn Chakram has a 20% chance to inflict the Poisoned debuff.

It will not fly out through ceilings or floors; but when returning to you, it will fly back through them.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase its average damage output by the same amount.
