The Terra Blade is one of the most difficult swords to acquire in the game. It can be swung continuously, and fires a fast-moving, neon green, low-use time magical sword that somewhat resembles the terra blade. This projectile will travel nearly indefinitely if untouched, otherwise it dissipates when it pierces through three enemies, or hits a solid block.



Terra Blade's projectile

  • During a blood moon, the projectile swords turn mostly yellow.
  • The projectiles move slower in water.
  • The highest prefix is Godly in the Nintendo 3DS version.


  • The name Terra Blade may be a combination of Terraria and Blade.
  • The name might also come from the Latin word Terra, which means earth.
  • Unlike it's components, it has Auto-Use. Which is a very useful ability, allowing you to hold down the mouse and it continues swinging. All swords on mobile/3DS have Auto-Use
  • The weapon is possibly a representation of purity, as its ingredients come from both light (True Excalibur) and darkness (True Night's Edge) to form a green (the color of nature) blade.
  • The Influx Waver, Which is dropped y the martian saucer, can be considered as an upgrade of it.
  • It's recipe involves 8 usable weapons, though this is technically 7 because Light's Bane and Blood Butcherer are exchangeable when making Night's Edge. Depending on if your world is crimson or corruption


  • Despite being a melee weapon, the Terra Blade cannot be swung while the player has the Silenced debuff.
  • The Terra Blade's projectile can be fired through angle blocks.
  • On the Mobile Version of Terraria, the beam from the Terra Blade is slightly displaced, possibly from the same bug as the Scourge of the Corruptor.
  • On the Mobile Version, when walking backwards and swinging the weapon, the sprite of the Terra Blade is reversed.
