The Nightmare Pickaxe is a tool that can mine most blocks and ores. The Nightmare Pickaxe is also the third-best Pickaxe in Pre-Hardmode before the Deathbringer Pickaxe. It is the Corruption equivalent of the Deathbringer Pickaxe.

On blocks like dirt or clay, it digs at about 3.6 blocks a second, while with harder blocks like stone it digs at 1.9 blocks a second. It mines the hardest blocks, such as ebonstone, at almost 1 block a second. It can mine both Hellstone and Obsidian, unlike the Platinum Pickaxe. However, it's incapable of mining Cobalt Ore, Mythril Ore and Adamantite Ore.

The Nightmare Pickaxe is one of the easiest items for a player to obtain that is a melee weapon and gives off particles. The particle effect given off by this tool are extremely similar to the particles that are emitted from Demonite Ore and Shadow Orbs.
