You cannot craft Tridents in Minecraft which certainly makes them rare. If a drowned has finally dropped a Trident, pick it up and use this list of the best Trident enchantments in Minecraft to improve your weapon significantly.

There are many reasons why a Trident is considered one of the best weapons in Minecraft. Its damage stats are at par with Netherite Sword and Diamond Axe but the biggest highlight is its ability to deal both melee and ranged damage.

Drowned mobs in Minecraft rarely drop Tridents and you can increase these odds with Looting enchantment. Once you get your hands on this weapon, the goal should be to use your best enchantments and make it as robust as possible.

Here’s a list of the best Trident enchantments in Minecraft.

Best Trident enchantments in Minecraft


Loyalty is unarguably the best Trident enchantment in Minecraft because it compels the weapon to come back after you throw it. Without Loyalty, operating a Trident can be a nightmare as you’ll have to search for it after throwing.

Considering its rarity, you wouldn’t want to lose your Trident in Minecraft. Hence, enchant it with Loyalty as soon as you can.

With the Riptide enchantment, Tridents in Minecraft launch the players when they’re wet (during rain or underwater). Mojang’s sandbox game doesn’t provide you with many quick transportation mediums which is why having this enchantment comes in handy during exploration.

You can travel the waters in Minecraft swiftly with a Trident enchanted with Riptide. Moreover, if you have an Elytra, you can use Riptide to launch yourself and fly which is often called the fastest transportation method in the entire game.

Mending is one of the most sought-after enchantments in Minecraft and it is equally good for Tridents. This enchantment basically consumes XP that you gain from killing a mob and uses it to repair the weapon.

With Mending, you can drastically increase the life span of your Trident and with proper planning, the weapon might stay in your inventory forever.

Unbreaking is another Minecraft enchantment that increases the life span of your Trident by letting it avoid durability reduction upon usage. Because Tridents are so rare, enchantments that increase durability are highly desirable.

Channeling enchantment in Minecraft allows you to create lightning bolts with your Trident during thunderstorms. Throw your Trident towards a mob during the rain and they’ll be struck with a massive lightning bolt that deals a ton of damage, starts a fire, and changes the mobs’ form in certain cases.

Here’s how Channeling affects mobs when you hit them with lightning bolts:

  • Creepers turn into Charged Creepers.
  • Villagers turn into Witches.
  • Cow mooshroom changes its colors (between Red and Brown).
  • Pigs turn into zombie Piglin.

Channeling is a strong enchantment that sets mobs on fire and kills them quickly. However, Riptide and Channeling aren’t compatible and you must choose the one that best suits your needs.

Tridents in Minecraft already have great damage stats, and Impaling is an enchantment that further increases this damage output against aquatic mobs. There are five levels and each level adds 2.5 extra damage.

You can deal additional damage to only aquatic mobs like Axolotls and turtles in Java Edition but in Bedrock edition, the enchantment also works against enemies in contact with water.

This means that during the rain, your Trident in Minecraft Bedrock edition can easily become the strongest weapon with Impaling.
