  • If players create an artificial Corruption biome in a Crimson world, they may obtain Cursed Flames. One might simply bring it from another world as a solution. As of the 1.4 update, it is possible to obtain Cursed Flames in a Crimson world without the use of creating another world. To do so, one must buy Corrupt Seeds from the Dryad in Hardmode while in a Graveyard and let it spread anywhere in the world to create an artificial Corrupt biome, giving access to Cursed Flames.


  • The Cursed Flame may be based on Greek Fire, a substance from the Eastern Romans that was able to burn almost anywhere, and was used in naval warfare.
  • It also may be based on the cursed green flames from The Festival, a short story by H. P. Lovecraft.
  • Spazmatism can shoot Cursed Flames, but it won't drop any.
