The Keybrand being used against a Target Dummy and a Skeleton.

Animation of the Keybrand.

The Keybrand is a Hardmode, post-Plantera sword. It has a 0.5*1/200 (0.5%) / 0.75*1/133 (0.75%) chance of being dropped by Blue Armored Bones, Hell Armored Bones, and Rusty Armored Bones in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

The Keybrand deals increased damage against previously injured enemies. When hitting enemies that have less than 10% health remaining, it deals a maximum of 150% extra damage (250% damage in total). Additionally, striking any enemy with the Keybrand will cause a sparkling visual effect.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[]

(This means, for every 1% of the enemy's health missing, the damage will be increased by \frac{1}{60}.)
  • If the hit enemy has less than 10% HP: \mathit{Damage} \times 2.5

Achievements[]

Robbing the Grave • Obtain a rare treasure from a difficult monster in the dungeon.
Obtain a rare item from an enemy in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

Tips[]

  • The Keybrand's ability to do more damage against previously injured targets makes it an exceptionally good choice against slow-moving, high-health targets such as Nailhead or the Ogre.

Trivia[]

  • The Keybrand is based on the Keyblade, a weapon used in the action role-playing game series Kingdom Hearts. It bears an especially strong resemblance to the Keyblade named the Kingdom Key, which Sora wields.
    • The Keybrand's visual effects when striking enemies are likely a reference to similar bright effects that appear when striking enemies with the Keyblade throughout the Kingdom Hearts series.
  • Despite being a key, it does not unlock anything.
