The Obsidian Rose is an accessory that reduces the base damage taken from lava from 80 to (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 35 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 50 and halves the duration of the On Fire! debuff inflicted by it from 7 / 14 / 17.5 seconds to 3.5 / 7 / 8.75 seconds.[1] It has a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/20 (5%) / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/50 (2%) chance of being dropped by Fire Imps, an enemy found in The Underworld.

  • The effects of the Obsidian Rose and the accessories crafted from it do not stack; wearing two or more does not reduce the base damage of lava below (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 35 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 50.
  • In Don't dig up(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Get fixed boi(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, where lava is more hazardous, the Obsidian Rose and the accessories crafted from it decrease the damage from 200 to 155 and the duration of On Fire! from 10.5 / 21 / 26.25 seconds to 7 / 14 / 17.5 seconds.[1]
  • The Obsidian Rose and the accessories crafted from it do stack with the set bonus of Ash Wood armor(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). If both are equipped, the player is fully immune to damage from lava.
    • In Don't dig up and Get fixed boi worlds, the player will still take 27 base damage and be inflicted with On Fire! for 3.5 / 7 / 8.75 seconds in this case.


  • More effective and easily accessible means of surviving contact with lava, such as Obsidian Skin Potions and Lava Charms, become available during or even before the stage of progression where a player could reasonably begin looking for an Obsidian Rose. Combined with how rarely it appears, and the fact that all its alternatives prevent lava damage outright, an Obsidian Rose has usually outlived its usefulness before it is even found.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) If the player has an Obsidian Rose and at least 97 defense, they will only take 1 damage from lava. The On Fire! debuff from lava will still deal full damage unless the player is also submerged in honey. This can be exploited to create an invincibility machine.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Obsidian Rose can be dropped by Fire Imps spawned from the Imp Statue,[2] albeit at a reduced drop rate of 1/400 (0.25%) rather than the usual 1/20 (5%).
