The Animus is a craftable post-Moon Lord broadsword that auto-swings. It is also dropped by Supreme Calamitas while in Expert Mode. Hitting an enemy applies the Brimstone Flames debuff for a significantly long time of 100 seconds. Animus changes its base damage every time it strikes an enemy, choosing a weighted value at random from the following options:

  • 25% chance of 4,000 damage
  • 25% chance of 6,000 damage
  • 20% chance of 9,000 damage
  • 15% chance of 15,000 damage
  • 10% chance of 30,000 damage
  • 5% chance of 50,000 damage

Its best modifier is Legendary. Damage changes provided by a modifier are overwritten by its random damage effect every time it is swung.

  • On average, a swing from Animus will do 12050 damage.
    • ((4000 * 25) + (6000 * 25) + (9000 * 20) + (15000 * 15) + (30000 * 10) + (50000 * 5)) / 100 = 12050
  • The Brimstone Flames debuff that Animus inflicts will deal an extra 4000 damage over its duration.
    • If the Brimstone Flames debuff that Animus inflicts is instead inflicted onto a player, they will take 1600 damage over the duration of the debuff, enough to kill them even with maximum health and a Lifeforce Potion.


  • Animus can mean either "hostility or ill feelings" or "motivation to do something".
    • Animus inflicting the Brimstone Flames debuff for such a long time is likely a reference to this first definition.
    • Animus in Latin translates roughly to "heart", "mind", and "spirit".
