Wings are Hardmode accessories that allow the player to fly temporarily by pressing and holding the Jump key. They also provide immunity from fall damage (except when the player is affected by the Stoned debuff), rendering the Lucky Horseshoe, Obsidian Horseshoe, Featherfall Potion, etc. unnecessary. By continuing to hold the Jump key after flight time has been exhausted, the player is able to glide. Gliding fall speed can be accelerated by holding the ▼ Down key in addition. Certain Wings can also allow the player to hover at fixed heights.

Equipping Wings generally replaces jumps entirely with flight, rather than requiring a double-jump to activate. With accessories like Cloud in a Bottle and variants equipped the player will have to use their double-jump before being able to fly. Flight is much more controlled with Wings than with Rocket Boots, Spectre Boots, etc. alone, and allow for much greater flight range. Flight time is reset when the player stands on blocks, or grabs a block with Grappling Hooks.

There are currently 42 Wing types in total: 39 available on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, 21 on the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version DS version. Flight time and speed can vary by type.

Types[edit | edit source]

See Guide:Jump Height Comparison for the flight heights achievable with Wings stacked with other equipment.

Most craftable Wings are crafted at a Mythril Anvil or an Orichalcum Anvil, with 20 Souls of Flight and one or two ingredients representing their type; many of these "wing key" ingredients are special drops which can only be used to craft wings. The four Lunar wings (Solar Wings, Vortex Booster, Nebula Mantle, and Stardust Wings) are instead crafted at the Ancient Manipulator from Lunar Fragments and Luminite Bars. Wings that are not craftable can be obtained from various sources: Purchased from NPCs (one is an Angler reward), dropped by particular enemies, or developer wings found in Expert mode Treasure Bags.

All developer wings have a 5% (1:20) chance to drop from Expert mode Treasure Bags, but only from Hardmode bosses.

  • All Wings work in Water.
  • The Fishron Wings work in water just as they do on land, with the same speed, unlike other wings.
  • Ghost Wings and Spectre Wings will only change color with the use of Black Dye which will make them appear a sort of dark gray.
  • You cannot equip more than one Wing at a time.
  • When one Wing type is placed in a vanity (social) slot and the other in an accessory slot, the full animation of the vanity Wings are shown, along with any lighting and particle effects. Flight speed and other functional characteristics follow those in the accessory slot.
  • Some jump-boosting accessories do stack with Wings to boost flight (see chart to the right).
  • Wings can be hidden when equipped and will be hidden while not in the air, otherwise they are always visible (except when using other equipment that adds graphics to the player's back, like the Leaf Blower or Turtle Scale Mail). They fold into a low-profile image when not used.
  • If Red's Wings are obtained on the Xbox 360 Xbox 360 version or Wii UWii U version, they will not disappear and can be used without any problems. Other developer Wings are available through hacking too, but they do not possess infinite flight. If wearing any other Wings as vanity over Red's Wings, the fast ascent becomes unavailable. It has been confirmed that it can be obtained on PS3 consoles but it's impossible to get it without hacks.
  • Some Mounts also grant flight ability, some with infinite flight time (all Wings provide only temporary flight).
  • You will need 300 (295 on Console) Souls of Flight in total to craft all craftable Wings, and 2 Platinum Coin 40 Gold Coin (1 Platinum Coin 80 Gold Coin on Console) to buy all purchasable Wings.
