The Meowmere is the weapon with the highest base damage in the game. When used, it fires a Nyan Cat-esque projectile in an arcing trajectory. It bounces four times before disappearing. The Moon Lord has an 11.11% chance to drop this.


Redigit first mentioned a Meowmere as being a sword that makes cat sounds when swung, in a possibly joking manner. Cenx later confirmed that the item was indeed planned for 1.3.


  • The projectiles fired when using this weapon seem to be inspired by the Nyan Cat internet meme.
  • The fired Nyan Cat will ricochet 5 times, each time creating an explosion deadlier than the last one.
  • The base design of the sword is reminiscent of the Palladium Sword.


  • Build a rectangular arena made from Asphalt then aim your cat at an angle of 20 degrees and keep swinging. This will create a cat "wave" which is useful for defeating wave events such as the Old One's army, the Frost moon and the Pumpkin moon
