The Broken Hero Sword is a crafting material dropped by Mothron during a Solar Eclipse. It is used in crafting the True Night's Edge and the True Excalibur, two high-tier melee weapons in Terraria. It cannot be used like a normal sword, contrary to its name. But this is compensated by the fact that it's "Broken" thus cannot be used as a weapon.

Update Info


  • No longer needed for crafting the Terra Blade
  • Drop chance increased from 0.5% to 25%.
  • Now dropped exclusively by Mothron.


  • Added to the game.
