  • Due to only requiring early-Hardmode materials to craft, this item can be used to fight Plantera earlier than normal. This is intentional, to give players more freedom as to how they progress through their playthrough.


  • Its name is a portmanteau of the words "portable" and "bulb", which are also the words that made up the item's previous name.
  • Internally, this item is referred to as "Bulb of Doom".
