The Obsidian Skull is an immunity accessory that grants immunity to the Burning debuff normally inflicted by contact with Meteorite, Hellstone, and Hellstone Bricks. It does not grant immunity to lava or other fire-based attacks. It additionally provides 1 defense.

Meteorite and Hellstone can be mined without Obsidian protection, as the player only takes damage when touching them in their placed block form; they can be mined from a distance without this immunity. However, this item makes the process much easier.

In For the worthy(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Get fixed boi(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, the Obsidian Skull also protects against the Burning debuff inflicted by contact with Crispy Honey Blocks.

The Obsidian Skull can be worn in a social accessory slot. (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) When worn, it gives the player a unique appearance.

  • If the player equips a helmet, it will cancel out the Obsidian Skull's appearance, even if the helmet reveals a little bit of the player's face. This can be remedied by wearing the Familiar Wig, which will override the helmet and make the Obsidian Skull visible, so long as it is toggled to be such in the equipment menu. Another exception can be seen when the player is wearing Bunny Ears while having the Obsidian Skull equipped.
