The Hellkite is a craftable Hardmode broadsword that auto-swings and is the direct upgrade to the Fiery Greatsword. It is larger than most other swords of its tier, and upon hitting an enemy it inflicts the On Fire! debuff and summons a damaging geyser of flame on top of each target struck, dealing additional damage.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
- The explosion generated by sword hits deals exactly 100% of the weapon's base damage, can not critically strike, does not damage nearby targets, and cannot be modified by any means.
- This effect, along with its visuals, is identical to the Ultimus Cleaver.
- The word "hellkite" refers to a fiercely cruel person.
