Nychthemeron balls being thrown on a Target Dummy and recalling to the player, causing them to disappear and orbs to home to the nearby Super Dummy.

The Nychthemeron is a craftable Hardmode spiky ball. It throws up to 10 gravity-ignoring spiky balls that decelerate over time, with the amount of balls thrown depending on stack size. The spiky balls break after hitting four enemies, contacting a solid block, recalling to the player, or completely stopping. While each spiky ball is active, a light orb and a dark orb orbit around the player. The orbs lose orbit and home onto nearby enemies once the balls are broken.

Right-clicking with the weapon will retract all of the spiky balls back to the player; holding right-click will slowly retract them, at about the speed they were thrown, and releasing right-click will do it quickly, near-instantly.

Performing a stealth strike with the Nychthemeron will cause all spiky balls to be thrown at once, which results in all light and dark orbs appearing simultaneously.

The Nychthemeron cannot have modifiers through any usual in-game means, due to its stackable nature.
