Kraken in action (infinite spin).

The Kraken is a Hardmode yoyo that has a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) chance to drop from any enemy in the post-Plantera Dungeon. It has a throwing length of 21 blocks. It is the third highest tier yoyo there currently is in the game. It is one of the few yoyos that is able to be thrown and stay in the air forever. When it is thrown out, there is a visible motion blur that only some yoyos have.

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