This article is about the Expert-exclusive consumable. For the breakable background object found in the Crimson, see Crimson Heart. For the breakable background object found in the Corruption, see Shadow Orb.

The Demon Heart is an Expert Mode and Master Mode consumable item from the Treasure Bag dropped by the Wall of Flesh. It permanently grants the player an extra accessory slot, for use only within Expert and Master worlds. This effect does not stack and may only be used once per player. If a player opens the Wall of Flesh's Treasure Bag after they have already consumed a Demon Heart, another one will not be obtained.[1]

When a player who consumed a Demon Heart is in a normal-mode world (a non-Expert/Master world), the extra accessory slot is disabled, removing any functional or display effects from items equipped there, and darkening the slot itself. Players in normal worlds are also prevented from equipping items in the sixth or seventh slot, though an equipped item in the slot may still be removed from the slot.


  • If a player equips wings in the sixth slot while in Expert/Master mode, then goes back to a normal world, the immunity to fall damage is still applied.


  • The Demon Heart is one of the few Expert-mode items that cannot be equipped in any accessory or equipment slots, the others being the three parts needed to craft the Mechanical Cart and, on Console version Console and Mobile version Mobile, the Bone Glove.
  • It is also the only consumable Expert/Master-exclusive item.


  • Desktop Fixed issue where you could get new characters with the 6th accessory slot unlocked.
