  • The Night's Edge can help with destroying the Hungry during the Wall of flesh fight. Attacking the boss directly is not recommended.
  • In hardmode, enemies have much more defense and health. A strong sword like the Night's edge can be very helpful for keeping enemies like wraiths and armored skeletons at bay.
  • The Night's Edge can be further upgraded into the True Night's Edge, which is stronger and shoots a projectile.
