Willow's Lighter is an in-game item that Willow begins with. It is intended to tie into her personality as "the Firestarter". It acts as a light source in darkness, enough to prevent attacks from Charlie, and it will never run out of fuel or deteriorate. The light given off from The Lighter is very small (less than a Torch's light radius), Willow will receive an extremely small sanity boost when equipped, and it provides little warmth to slow freezing.
To equip and use Willow's Lighter, right-click it from the inventory. Dragging it over objects such as Trees, Spider Dens, or Beehives and right clicking, or equipping it and right clicking on such objects, will light them on fire. If the burning object contains creatures like a Beehive does, they will exit the structure when it is set ablaze. Burning objects will also ignite other objects (or creatures) if they are nearby, possibly spreading to cause massive fires. Willow's Lighter can be used as a weapon to deal 17 damage per strike.
- The Lighter was added in the Strange New Powers update. Before, Willow would light small fires at her feet when put in complete darkness, making her essentially invulnerable to attacks from Charlie. With the introduction of the Lighter, the player must take action and equip it in order to access this invulnerability.
- Since the item was introduced in the June 25, 2013 preview, it is one of the first character-specific items implemented in the game's history, and it is the first item in the 'Hand' slot that can raise Sanity.
