The Holy Mackerel is a broadsword available through Fishing in the Ocean during Hardmode. It has a chance to inflict the Humiliated debuff on enemies, and its base damage grows when Duke Fishron and the Moon Lord are defeated. The chance for the item to drop is 1 in 400 divided by the user's Fishing Power. Note that the chance cannot exceed 1 in 30.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is a direct reference to the weapon of the same name from Team Fortress 2.
  • As is the case with the Frying Pan family of items, the fact that this item deals triple damage on a critical hit is a reference to Team Fortress 2, in which critical hits deal triple damage instead of Terraria's double damage critical hits.
