The Astral Scythe is a Hardmode broadsword that is dropped from Mantises after defeating Astrum Aureus. When swung, it will fire out a spinning ring projectile much like the ones fired by Mantises, which deals 60% of the scythe's base damage, can pierce up to seven targets, and disappears upon tile contact. It will also form a cosmetic dust explosion when the projectile is destroyed.

Its best modifier is Legendary.


  • This weapon can also be obtained from the Astral Crate after Astrum Aureus has been defeated.


  • The projectile created resembles those created by the Mantis Lords boss and the Mantis Petra enemy in the game Hollow Knight.
