The Unholy Trident is a Hardmode magic weapon that fires fast magic tridents and has a fast fire rate, but a high mana cost. The projectiles pierce up to 2 enemies, and dissipate upon impacting a third. It has a 3.33% (1/30) chance to be dropped by Red Devils in The Underworld after defeating any Mechanical Boss.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Enemies can also be damaged by the weapon itself as if it were a melee weapon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Unholy Trident is considered by some to be the Hardmode version of the Book of Skulls, because of the high damage and mana cost, also being dropped by one of the most dangerous enemies in Hardmode.
    • After the balance changes in, the fire rate increase has made the Unholy Trident more like a Hardmode decendant of the Gem Staves, or a slower firing, harder hitting version of the Laser Rifle.
