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, including critical damage if the player is falling. Throwing a Riptide trident consumes 1 durability, with an additional durability point consumed if it 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).
