The Tonbogiri is a Hardmode post-Ocram Spear. It has a small chance to inflict the Poisoned debuff and is in the same tier as Tizona.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

On the Console version Console version and Mobile version Mobile version, the Tonbogiri was replaced with a Chlorophyte Partisan upon updating to the equivalent.

  • The very high sell value means that this is a very expensive weapon to reforge.


  • Even though the Tonbogiri's tooltip says "A legendary Japanese spear coated in venom," it does not inflict the Venom debuff, but rather the Poisoned debuff.
  • Tonbogiri is the spear used by Honda Tadakatsu, a legendary Japanese general who was said to have fought in a hundred battles without ever suffering a single wound. The spear's name translates to "Dragonfly Cutter," due to its allegedly being so sharp that when one landed on its tip, it was instantly cut in two.
    • Tonbogiri in Japanese is "蜻蛉切り". The first two characters mean "Dragonfly" and the other two mean "cut," which can also be translated as "cutter."
    • Spike Chunsoft uses the katakana name (トンボギリ) for this item in its Japanese release.
  • On the Collector's Edition poster, in the description, it misspells the name as "Tobongiri".
