The Leather Whip in action.

The Leather Whip is a pre-Hardmode whip purchased from the Zoologist for 10 GC. Like other whips, it causes minions and sentries to focus on the last-struck enemy and increases their damage against the target by 4.

If the Leather Whip hits multiple targets in a single attack, the damage dealt by each consecutive hit will be reduced by 50%.

Its best modifier is Legendary.


  • The line 'Die monster!' in the tooltip is a reference to the platform-adventure action role-playing game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, referring to the iconic intro dialogue between Dracula and Richter Belmont along with the latter's whip.
  • Internally, the Leather Whip requires 10% of the Bestiary to be filled out to be available for purchase,[1] but since the Zoologist cannot spawn prior to that, it is always available when she is present.


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Knockback increased from 0.5 to 1.
    • Purchase value reduced from 15 GC to 10 GC.
  • Desktop 1.4.1: Changed requirements for purchase from 15% to 10% Bestiary completion.
