When a trident enchanted with Loyalty is thrown and comes into contact with any block or entity, it returns after a time interval to the player who threw it. Higher enchantments decrease the waiting time to return.
In Java Edition, throwing a trident into the Void effectively destroys the trident; it never returns because it hits no block or entity.[until JE Combat Tests] In Bedrock Edition, the trident returns after traveling around 15 blocks in the void. A Loyalty-enchanted trident does not return when thrown by a dispenser.
