The Sharkron Balloon is an accessory that combines the effects of the Tsunami in a Bottle and the Balloon Pufferfish. It boosts jump height by 33% and jump speed by 30% increasing your first jump's height to ~10½ blocks (~75% increase), and provides a double jump that now goes 13 blocks, for a total height of 23½ blocks.

Jump height is oddly reduced when underwater, reducing your total underwater height from 17½ blocks (8 blocks + 9½ blocks from Tsunami jump) to 15 blocks (7 blocks + 8 blocks from Tsunami jump).

It can be combined with a Lucky Horseshoe at a Tinkerer's Workshop to make a Pink Horseshoe Balloon.

Increased height of first jump
Tsunami double jump
  • The Sharkron's Tsunami jump is the second lowest double-jump available, beating only the Cloud jump.
  • The Sharkron Balloon still reduces jump height in water, despite both of its components being aquatic-themed.
  • The Sharkron Balloon sells for less than the added prices of its components.
  • If it is dyed with a compound dye, the bigger part will be the first color, the smaller one the second.
  • It represents a fishing-based alternative to the crafting paths involving the Shiny Red Balloon.


  • The Sharkron Balloon's double-jump can be used to avoid fall damage with good timing.
  • The Sharkron Balloon is especially effective when combined with wings, because the Tsunami jump will jump-start the wings and the Pufferfish will let the player fly higher.
