The Lawn Mower is a tool that can be purchased from the Golfer for 1. It mows normal and Hallowed grass. Mowed grass has a different texture, reduces enemy spawn chance, prevents tall grass from growing, and changes how balls move in golfing. The Lawn Mower deals a fixed amount of 8 damage[1] to critters and enemies only while the player is moving. When it is used on grass other than normal and hallowed, it only removes weeds and flowers.

  • Contrary to most items, the damage from the Lawn Mower is fixed, and therefore are not affected by armor, accessories or potions. Defense can still reduce its damage as normal.
  • It is able to mow grass vertically (by jumping at the side of a grassy Dirt Block with the Lawn Mower equipped), and in reversed gravity (via the Gravitation Potion or the Gravity Globe).
  • The Lawn Mower works with the Smart Cursor and will mow grass on any orientation so long as it is in range. This includes tiles of grass embedded completely in dirt.
