Calamari's Lament is a post-Moon Lord summon weapon that drops from Colossal Squids after Polterghast has been defeated. It summons a baby squid that shoots ink at enemies and dashes towards them.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Calamari's Lament has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
