** Lava Slimes on Expert Mode. They drop a blocks worth of lava when killed, which can deal tremendous damage. But it's at its worst when you're building an arena for the Wall of Flesh, as the lava can break wood platforms and take out campfires.

* GameBreakingBug: a very strange one that only happens in the Steam edition (Or at least, NOT the GOG edition). The game suffers from a blatantly ridiculous framerate drop when you make the character walk left or right on foot, going down from the normal fps to half or even 1/60th of normal. It's a bug rather than a hardware limitation because if the character does '' literally any other action'', such as jumping, jumping while moving, climbing up and down ropes, or moving sideways while on a mount, the game moves at normal speed. As of writing, this bug, which is not found in the version distributed by GOG, is still unfixed and constantly misidentified as the player not having the hardware requirements to play the game.

** Downplayed with the Coin Gun. It's the rarest drop in a pirate invasion, having a 0.25% chance to drop from the Flying Dutchman Ship (Meaning one in every ''400'' ships has one), a 0.05$ chance to drop from Captains, and a 0.0125% chance to drop from anything else. It has a very high damage stat, but you need coins to use it. It has a power of 200... When using platinum coins. Unless you have a good money farm, it's very hard to get this weapon to its peak damage.

** Underworld has the Lava Slimes. They jump far and fast and literally leap off of lava like a spring. In Expert mode, they drop a block of lava when killed.

* PlayerPunch: Want to enable the game's Hard Mode and get access to a whole bunch of cool new stuff? You have to kill the Guide - the first NPC who joined you in your new world, and who spent the entire game up to that point freely sharing advice and crafting recipes with you. [[WhatTheHellPlayer You are a terrible person]]!

** In a similar fashion, if you want to rematch Skeletron, you're gonna need to kill the Clothier. You know, the guy you freed from Skeletron's curse to live the rest of his life happily? [[SarcasmMode Hope you have a good time with that rematch.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: The "Djinn's Curse" vanity from the Desert Spirit. Gives you fancy FogFeet and a slow fall ability. Cool, huh? That is, if the slow fall worked in the social slot, or if the item provided any defense, or if it wasn't dropped under circumstances that all but ensure your ownership of a pair of wings.

** Played straight with the Enchanted Sword, a rare sword with the ability to fire damaging energy beams with each swing. It is one of the most rare items in the entire game. The game has a small chance of spawning the Enchanted Sword somewhere underground when you first generate a world. There is no indication that the sword has spawned and since it's in a random spot underground you could potentially spend a thousand hours in a world with an Enchanted Sword and never know it's there. In the off chance that you do somehow manage to find an Enchanted Sword you realize that... it's terrible. It has only one point of damage more than the Light's Bane, a low tier weapon. The ability to fire energy beams isn't even all that special, even pre-Hardmode. The Ice Blade, another pre-Hardmode weapon, does the same thing, is almost as damaging, and is far easier to acquire.
*** No longer as bad after 1.3, where Enchanted Sword shrines can spawn, with a 3/10 chance that the sword is the Enchanted sword (and a 1/30 where it is a Arkhalis)
** {{Exaggerated|Trope}} with the Slime Staff. It has the lowest drop rate of any enemy-dropped item: only a 1 in 10,000 chance, and even Pinky only has a 1% chance to drop it, the highest chance of all Slime enemies. This makes it potentially the rarest of any of the summon weapons, on top of being the ''weakest'' with a mere 8 damage and no ranged ability. However, combining this weapon with the Greedy Ring's effects[[note]]causing enemies to drop gold on every hit and spawn more coins on death than usual[[/note]] and a specially-structured arena can turn it into a very profitable cash cow that nets dozens of gold coins in a few minutes, so it's not completely valueless.

** Are summoners underpowered when compared to the other classes and deserve a much needed buff to bring them up to speed, or are they a case of MagikarpPower that is as powerful enough as is and any further buffs would push them into GameBreaker territory? Again, discussions on that can get rather heated as well.

*** This also includes arguments over the "proper" way to play summoners. Should they only use summons to deal damage while they focus purely on dodging or, since they don't need to keep a hold of the staff to attack, does this mean they're free to use weapons from other classes with no problem? Also, how do summoners start the game? Are they allowed to use lava and a Slime Statue to grind for the Slime Staff? Or are they really expected to get the Reaver shark, mind down to the Underworld for Hellstone, and craft the Imps as their first summon? You'll never be able to get a straight, general consences on this.
