- Bat Hook
On the Desktop version, Console version, and Mobile version, the Bat Hook has a pull-in speed of 13 and a hook velocity of 13.5, which still makes it a very fast hook that can be acquired in the early game. It has the longest reach of all pre-Hardmode hooks, as well; still, some players may find a multi-hook (such as the Ivy Whip) preferable.
- The Bat Hook is most likely a reference to DC Comics' fictional superhero Batman, who uses a grappling hook which reels in very quickly, usually launching him up onto ledges.
