  • Kraken
Kraken in action (infinite spin).

The Kraken is a Hardmode, post-Plantera yoyo that has a 1/400 (0.25%) chance to drop from any enemy in the Dungeon. It is the third highest tier yoyo there currently is in the game. When it is thrown out, there is a visible motion blur that only some yoyos have. The Kraken also has a base 14% critical strike chance as opposed to the usual 4%.

It has an infinite spin duration and can reach up to 21 tiles.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.
