  • This item increases the player's base speed from 15 mph to 34 mph.
  • If the player runs into a wall with a 1-block opening in the floor next to the wall, the player will sometimes fall through.
  • The Lightning Boots are extremely useful for cases that involve lots of dodging such as the fight against the Eye of Cthulhu or The Twins. They are also useful when fighting the Wall of Flesh using the bridge strategy, especially in Expert Mode.
  • When stacked with Flying Carpet and/or Wings, Lightning Boots prove to be very useful.
  • Stacking with Amphibian Boots will slow the player's speed down to 30 mph. This will not happen if the Lightning boots are in any accessory slot below the Amphibian Boots.
