A player using the Tabi to dash left and right.

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

  • 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.
    • The Tabi dash should be used exclusively to dodge out of the path of incoming attacks; avoid dashing into enemies unless they deal low damage and your character has knockback immunity (with a Cobalt Shield or its variants).
  • The dash granted by Tabi achieves slightly lower speed than that given by Shield of Cthulhu, but the difference is small and should not have a great practical impact on gameplay.
  • If the player continues to move after dashing, the ability from items such as the Hermes Boots will be activated.
  • It can be used to activate the charge of a Unicorn Mount if timed correctly.
  • 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 as this can be tedious and/or tiring, it is possible, as long as a Grappling Hook is in the player's inventory, 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.
  • Dashing on Asphalt will instantly bring the player up to full speed.

  • Tabi are traditional Japanese socks that are ankle high, with a separation between the big toe and the other toes.
