The Lionfish is a Pre-Hardmode rogue weapon obtained from Shadow Chests in the Abyss. When used, it hurls a Lionfish which travels in a straight line for a long distance before being affected by gravity.

The Lionfish inflicts Venom on contact with enemies and sticks to them. Unlike most weapons that deal Venom, the damage over time dealt by the Lionfish stacks. Up to six Lionfish can be impaled on an enemy at once, similar to Daybreak spears for a maximum of 300 damage per second. This can stack with the Sulphuric Acid Cannon for a maximum of 390 damage per second.

Lionfish projectiles will explode upon hitting a block or after being stuck to an enemy for several seconds. This explosion is purely cosmetic and deals no damage.

Lionfish projectiles remove Venom immunity from King Slime, Skeletron and its hands, and the Wall of Flesh.

Performing a stealth strike with the Lionfish causes the resulting projectile to release several homing urchin spikes as it travels.

Its best modifier is Flawless.



  • Lionfish are a real world fish known for their venomous spikes.
