Poseidon's Trident is the trademark weapon of the primordial god of the seas; Poseidon. It is also his symbol of power. It is a powerful weapon, forged by the Cyclopes alongside Zeus' Lightning Bolts and Hades' Helm of Darnkess to aid the gods in the Titanomachy


The Trident's shape is that of a three-pronged spear, with royal details carved on most of it's depictions.


In myth, among the capabilities of the trident, it is told that Poseidon could use it to manipulate the water and entire oceans, and/or to control sea life on most of it's forms and cause the skies to blacken or clear.
