Murasama Slash

"It was tempered by the fires which are fueled by spirits, and formed in the magma I draw into my laboratories."

Not to be confused with Muramasa, a vanilla broadsword.

The Murasama is a post-Moon Lord melee weapon resembling a sword. It can be found in The Underworld's Bio-center Arsenal Lab, contained within a Security Chest. Although Murasama is technically obtainable in Pre-Hardmode, it cannot be swung until Jungle Dragon, Yharon has been defeated in the current world or if the user has a special name. It possesses a larger than normal critical strike chance.

While being swung, large red electric slashes will swing in the direction of the cursor, and any enemies that are hit by the slashes will take damage. The slashes appear in a set looping order: one large upward slash, one larger electrified upward slash, and then a slightly smaller downward slash. Each slash deals the same amount of damage. The Murasama emits bright red particles outward as it swings.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size. Ruthless might be preferred if the player already has 100% critical strike chance.

Notes

  • The Murasama cannot attack through walls. The exception to this rule is enemies that move through tiles.
  • Despite not behaving like normal swords or spears, it is considered a true melee weapon.
    • As such, it also has the most range of all true melee weapons.
  • The Murasama's attack speed is slower than what is visually indicated when using it, at 25 use time (2.4 swings per second). Its swing range is also fixed, despite the slashes appearing at varying distances.
  • The Murasama can be used at any point before defeating Yharon if the character's name is "Jetstream Sam" or "Samuel Rodrigues"
  • The Murasama only deals 40% damage to Ares and its weapons and 35% damage to Supreme Calamitas' Supreme Soul Seekers.
  • If the player is playing with the retro or trippy light settings, then the Murasama behaves as an immense source of light. When this is paired with a night owl potion or a night vision helmet, it generates even more light.

Trivia

  • The Murasama has a Draedon's Log entry dedicated to it, also found in the Underworld Bio-center Lab, where it is depicted alongside the Phaseslayer.
  • The Murasama is a reference to a weapon of the same name and similar appearance wielded by the character Jetstream Sam from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
    • The fast, blurred cutting animation that the item uses is based on the blurring visuals shown when the player or Sam uses the sword.
      • The fact the weapon is "ID locked" is also a reference to Sam, for the inability of using his weapon immediately after defeating him, unlike the other bosses in Metal Gear Rising.
    • The weapon's tooltip, "There will be blood!", is a reference to the lyrics of "The Only Thing I Know For Real", which is Sam's boss theme, specifically the line "The only thing I know for real- There will be blood! Shed!"
  • Prior to being located in Underworld Arsenal Labs, the Murasama was generated in now-removed Underworld Shrines. Before that, the Murasama was a Revengeance-exclusive weapon dropped by The Devourer of Gods. And before that, it was dropped by The Devourer of Gods in the now-removed Prepare to Cry mode.
