The Unholy Trident in action. Notice how it pierces up to two enemies, dissipating upon impacting a third.

The Unholy Trident is a Hardmode magic weapon that autofires high-velocity purple tridents and has a fast fire rate, but a high mana cost. The trident projectiles pierce up to two enemies and dissipate upon impact with a third. The Unholy Trident has a 1/30 (3.33%) chance to be dropped by Red Devils in The Underworld after defeating any mechanical boss.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


  • In Don't dig up(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Get fixed boi(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, the Unholy Trident receives the following changes:
    • Switched place with Flower of Fire. As a result, it is found in Shadow Chests and Obsidian Lock Boxes instead of dropped by Red Devils.
    • Damage decreased from 88 to 42.
    • Mana cost decreased from 19 to 9.
    • Value decreased from 50 GC to 12 GC50 SC.


  • It can be considered a Hardmode version of the Gem staves, due to both weapons firing a projectile that pierces a limited amount of enemies in a straight line.
