Tridents might not be the first weapon that comes to mind in Minecraft, but whenever you see a Drowned drop one, you know you will pick it up. These pronged spears can be used as melee attacks or ranged by throwing them to harm and defeat mobs. Like other tools in the game, you will want to attach some enchantments to get the most out of it. Here are the best enchantments you should consider putting on your Trident in Minecraft.

The best Trident enchantments in Minecraft

1. Loyalty

Loyalty is our favorite Trident enchantment because it instantly calls the weapon back when you throw it. Without it, you will have to do a lot of running around making sure you don’t lose it, so we highly recommend putting this on.

2. Channeling

While Channeling’s use is a bit niche, we enjoy comboing it with Loyalty. When it is raining, you can throw your Trident at a mob and hit them with a lightning bolt. Of course, this does damage, but you can also use this to create Supercharged Creepers and Piglins.

3. Mending

Mending is one of the most important enchantments in Minecraft because it repairs your items by picking up experience orbs. Putting this on a Trident essentially makes it invincible.

4. Impaling

Impaling increases your damage against sea creatures. It is great against enemies in underwater temples, but otherwise, this is a very specific enchantment.

5. Riptide

Riptide will propel you forward when you try to throw your Trident while in water or the rain. It doesn’t work with Loyalty or Channeling, which is why we have it in the last spot. Other than that reason, it’s a great way to get around in the water, but if you use it in the rain, you are putting yourself in danger of falling damage.
