You want apples? You want carrots? You want pineapples? We got torches.

— The Merchant

Torches can be picked up by pressing the Open / Activate key and used to light up the region around the player when held.
Torches held by the player will be put out upon entering water, even if the water is waist level and would not reach it.

Torches are furniture items that produce light when placed, held, or dropped (via the Throw key), and are crucial at all stages of gameplay as primary light sources. Torches provide light permanently, and are never extinguished. Regular torches can be found randomly in chests and Pots, as a bonus drop from slimes, or purchased from the Merchant or Skeleton Merchant for 50 each.

Torches can be placed on the sides or tops of most blocks, on background walls, and on the sides of trees and Wooden Beams. They can also be placed on any type of platform. A placed torch can be retrieved by pressing the Open / Activate key on it or by freeing it with a pickaxe or drill. When the block a torch is attached to is broken, the torch will attach itself to any other block or wall directly adjacent to it. If all adjacent blocks surrounding a torch are removed (left, right, and bottom), and no wall exists behind it, it drops like any other item.

Torches are also mechanisms that can be toggled on and off via Wire.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, placing at least 101 torches in close proximity below the surface layer in any biome will start the Torch God mini-event. Completing the event will grant the Torch God's Favor, which will allow the player to automatically convert ordinary torches to one of the biome types.

Types

Light range and color of the torches with "Color" lighting mode. From top to bottom:
-Torch (regular)
-Orange
-Red
-Purple
-Blue
-Green
-Yellow
-White
-Ice
-Ultrabright
-Demon
-Cursed
-Ichor

Standard Torch

Standard Torches produce an orange flame, and cannot be placed in liquids. They are crafted with Wood and Gel, but can also be purchased from the Merchant (always) or the Skeleton Merchant (during the second half of every in-game minute (real life second)) for 50 each. Besides being used to craft various other light sources, they are also used to craft Flaming Arrow, Molotov Cocktails, and the Flaming Mace.

Colored Torch

Purple, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red, White and Orange Torches can be made by combining standard Torches with gems. There are nine available colors, one for each of the seven gem colors, plus the Pink Torch crafted with Pink Gel and the Rainbow Torch crafted with Rainbow Brick. With the exception of their colors and light levels, these function identically to a standard Torch. The Rainbow Torch cycles through various colors. The Pink Torch is used to craft the Peace Candle, and the Rainbow Torch is used to craft the Rainbow Campfire.

Ice Torch

Ice Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Ice Blocks or, in Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, and Nintendo Switch version Switch, with Pink Ice Blocks, Purple Ice Blocks, or Red Ice Blocks. They give off a pale blue light. The Ice Torch has a slightly different graphic to the rest of the colored torches. Besides being used to craft the Frozen Campfire and various Frozen and Boreal light sources, they are also used to craft Frostburn Arrows.

Bone Torch

Bone Torches are sold by the Skeleton Merchant for 1 each during the first half of every in-game minute (a real-world second). They are used to craft Bone Campfires. Bone Torches regularly produce long-lasting sparks which can map out a fair distance below them.

Another way of acquiring Bone Torches is placing and immediately breaking Torches in the Dungeon with the Torch God's Favor.

Ultrabright Torch

Ultrabright Torches cannot be crafted, but are sometimes sold by the Traveling Merchant for 3 each. They shine brighter than normal torches when held. They are used to craft Ultra Bright Campfires and Living Ultrabright Fire Blocks.

Demon Torch

Demon Torches can be taken from the Ruined Houses in the Underworld, where they occur naturally. On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, Nintendo Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader, they can also be crafted by combining standard torches with Obsidian. They function identically to standard, colored and Ice Torches, except that they cycle smoothly between red, purple, and blue flame colors. They are used to craft Demon Campfires and Living Demon Fire Blocks.

Cursed and Ichor Torch

These torches become available in Hardmode, and emit a bright green or yellow light, respectively. They are nearly unique in that they can be held or placed in liquids and still function normally there. They are crafted by combining standard Torches with Cursed Flames (Cursed Torches) or Ichor (Ichor Torches). They are used to craft Cursed Campfires and Ichor Campfires, respectively.

Desert Torch

Desert Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Hardened Sand Blocks, Hardened Crimsand Blocks, Hardened Ebonsand Blocks or Hardened Pearlsand Blocks. They are used to craft Desert Campfires.

Coral Torch

Coral Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Coral. The Coral Torch has a slightly different graphic to the rest of the colored torches. They can be placed in Water and still function normally there. They are used to craft Coral Campfires.

Corrupt Torch

Corrupt Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Ebonstone Blocks, Hardened Ebonsand Blocks or Purple Ice Blocks. They are used to craft Corrupt Campfires.

Crimson Torch

Crimson Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Crimstone Blocks, Hardened Crimsand Blocks or Red Ice Blocks. They are used to craft Crimson Campfires.

Hallowed Torch

These torches become available in Hardmode. Hallowed Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Pearlstone Blocks, Hardened Pearlsand Blocks or Pink Ice Blocks. They are used to craft Hallowed Campfires.

Jungle Torch

Jungle Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Jungle Spores. They are used to craft Jungle Campfires.

Notes

  • With the exception of the Coral Torch, Cursed Torch, and Ichor Torch, torches do not function under water. A torch thrown into water will not emit light once it submerges, and if a player enters water with a torch selected in the hotbar, the torch will not be visible and will emit no light. Placed torches are freed when water touches them, and drop as items.
  • Holding the Auto Select key with the cursor over empty space will automatically prepare the torches in the player's inventory, allowing for quick placement or easy access to light.
  • White Torches appear to produce the most light of any light source in the game.
  • Torches provide more light when placed than they do when held or dropped, with the exception of the Ultrabright.
  • Torches are the only item where it is possible to throw (via the Throw key) just one of the item. For all other items, the entire stack gets thrown.
  • Throwing a torch will cause it to only go a few tiles forwards before falling straight down. For a light source that can be tossed farther, Glowsticks or Flares should be used (though note that Glowsticks are thrown by selecting them and then pressing the Use / Attack button, not by pressing Throw).
  • Despite appearing dim, Blue Torches can reach a respectable distance with the "Trippy" lighting mode selected, which is extended even farther under the effects of a Night Owl Potion.
  • While in Smart Cursor mode, the player can only place torches in dark places.

Trivia

  • Orange Torches were apparently added because of a "really persistent nagging brit" in reference to the YouTuber ChippyGaming (James Bennett).[4]
  • Torch flame animations continue to play while the game is paused.
  • If a block is placed above a torch, the torch will lower. If there is no block above it, the torch gets higher. This can be seen best using a Trap Door and opening/closing it.
  • The Torch is the most used ingredient, with 228 recipes needing it, followed by Wood that is needed in 154 recipes.
  • In Constant Worlds, torches and Campfires exposed to the sky will "turn off" during Rain.
