The Nocturnal is a craftable yoyo. It acts as the Corruption counterpart to the Sanguine; it is similarly crafted at an Altar using the four yoyos found or crafted with materials from the four main biomes of the world: Corruption, Jungle, Dungeon, and Underworld. It has a reach of about 13 tiles and a 18 second attack duration.
This yoyo has the unique ability of having a 20% chance to release four small black light projectiles upon hitting an enemy. These projectiles briefly shoot out in all directions before homing towards the nearest enemy; upon hitting them, they will be inflicted with the Light Curse debuff briefly.
- It is in the same theme as items such as the Night's Edge, Eternal Night, and Light's Lament; however, unlike those weapons, it cannot be crafted into a True variation.
