The Tabi is a Hardmode, post-Plantera accessory which allows the player to perform a dash by double-tapping the horizontal movement key. The dash ability has a one-second cooldown between uses. The Tabi has a 1/12 (8.33%) / 23/144 (15.97%) chance to drop from Bone Lees in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

A player using the Tabi to dash left and right.
  • Performing a dash will not make the player invulnerable to enemy attacks. Players will take full damage and knockback from enemies they dash into, unlike the Shield of Cthulhu(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
  • If the player continues to move after dashing, the ability from items such as the Hermes Boots will be activated.

  • The dash granted by the Tabi should be used exclusively to dodge out of the path of incoming attacks since it does not grant invulnerability. Avoid dashing into enemies unless they deal low damage and the player has knockback immunity (with a Paladin's Shield or Cobalt Shield or its variants).
  • The Tabi's dash achieves slightly lower speed than the Shield of Cthulhu's dash, but the difference is small and should not have a great practical impact on gameplay.
  • The dash can be used to activate the charge of a Unicorn Mount if timed correctly.
  • Dashing on Asphalt will instantly bring the player up to full speed.
  • In the Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, shifting the circle pad twice in the preferred direction works as it would on any other version, but this can be tedious and/or tiring. An alternative that works as long as a Grappling Hook is in the player's inventory is to press A while moving the circle pad from its center position to perform a dash. Take note, however, that this will also fire the Grappling Hook in question.


A pair of Japanese tabi.
  • Tabi are traditional Japanese socks that are ankle-high and have a separation between the big toe and the other toes.


  • Desktop 1.4.1: Fixed an issue where dodged attacks could still result in debuffs on the player.
