Robust Twilight Oak Sapling is a type of Twilight Forest Sapling that can only be acquired by finding it as loot in a chest in a Leaf Dungeon. It cannot be acquired by allowing Twilight Oak Leaves to decay or by breaking them normally. This is a very valuable and powerful item and possibly a griefing item due to the nature of the tree that it generates. Robust Twilight Oak Saplings generate Twilight Oaks composed of Twilight Oak Wood, Twilight Oak Leaves, Fireflies and Cicadas. This is due to the nature of Robust Twilight Oak Saplings as opposed to Sickly Twilight Oak Saplings.

Whereas Sickly Twilight Oak Saplings (roughly equivalent to normal Oak saplings, can be considered the "normal" variety) generate a Twilight Oak of size equivalent to that of a normal Oak tree (as it uses the same generation algorithm as an Oak tree) a Robust Twilight Oak Sapling will generate trees of the type that one can see stretching dozens of blocks above the canopy of the Forest when wandering the Twilight Forest biome. The Robust Twilight Oak Sapling will generate a tree dozens or potentially over a hundred blocks in height with vines lining the inside for the player to climb to the top. The tree will have a diameter of anywhere from three to nine blocks, thick roots, a thick base, and offshoots of both leaves and logs with a massive crown of leaves and logs at its head.

The Robust Twilight Oak Sapling will cause chunks to be regenerated due to the sheer size of the tree that is created; chunks that were previously empty will have to be reloaded with the tree in place. The tree is also so tall that Cicadas and Fireflies rest upon it. The Robust Twilight Oak Sapling can be grown with Bone Meal and can be grown with only one piece of Bone Meal if there is sufficient space around it and above it. However, there is a slight delay between the usage of Bone Meal and the growth of the tree, and any Bone Meal used in this interval is wasted.

The Robust Twilight Oak Sapling can be used as a potential griefing tool, as it generates a very thick structure of Root blocks beneath it that stretch down long distances beneath the tree itself. This means that it can be used to overwrite large quantities of blocks both below it and above it, as Robust Twilight Oak Saplings can overwrite blocks both with the generated Root blocks and the generated tree parts. It can also cause lag during the growth stage. Thus, if a Robust Twilight Oak Sapling is acquired, it should be treated with caution, as it is a fairly powerful item to be in possession of.
