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, sometimes deals critical 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.
