Falling Stars spawn at the top of the world and rapidly fall to the ground. They can be easily found by the light they give off and the distinctive sound they make as they fall. They deal 1000 base damage on the rare occasions that they impact enemies as they are falling, though they will not damage players.
- The tooltip is slightly misleading. Although it says, "Disappears after the sunrise", Fallen Stars in your Chests, Safes, Piggy Banks, and inventory are safe — only Fallen Stars on the ground disappear during the day. This includes stars that are dropped from the inventory, so it is advised to use caution when exiting the Guide's crafting menu or trying to give these items to another player.
- One of the best ways to collect Fallen Stars is to build a giant Skybridge and run along it at night while wearing Hermes Boots.
- When falling, they appear to be spinning.
- Fallen Stars that are still falling during the day will disappear immediately upon striking the ground.
- When using a Fallen Star as an item, it makes the same sound as a Mana Crystal.
- Most items stack up to 99, but Fallen Stars can stack up to 100.
- Sometimes, if a Falling Star hits a vertical pillar of blocks and not the ground, the Fallen Star created may float in midair rather than falling to the ground.
- On the iOS terraria, tapping a fallen star during daytime will cause it to freeze where you were when you tapped it, unable to be collected. Note that it doesn't disappear after a while after it is stuck.Verify
- On the Console Version of Terraria, if a player has 100 in their inventory, they are converted into a fallen star.Verify
