Riptide is an enchantment to a trident, allowing the player to use the trident as a means of fast transportation.


Tridents enchanted with Riptide can be thrown only when a player stands in water, or during snowy weather in certain biomes,[note 1] or during rainy weather. In those situations, a thrown trident launches the player with it. Higher levels allow for traveling greater distances. Players can also reach higher heights by throwing a Riptide trident straight upwards.

If the player collides with a mob or another player, the trident deals throwing damage. Using Riptide consumes durability of the Trident regardless of whether or not the trident collides with a mob or player.‌[Java Edition only]

A thrown trident can hit multiple targets,‌[Bedrock Edition only] but it behaves like a regular trident when thrown by a dispenser.


Riptide is mutually exclusive with Loyalty and Channeling (although Loyalty and Channeling may be combined with each other).


  1. Riptide tridents do not work in biomes where it snows at all altitudes, see MC-128169


  • A trident enchanted with Riptide can be held in the offhand slot and used to dash, without attacking. Upon colliding with an entity, the trident receives no damage; rather, damage is applied from the selected hotbar slot.
