The Trident of Power is a unique weapon with more strength than a Dragonbone Battleaxe when it is a battleaxe, and the strength of a Dragonbone Greatsword when it is a greatsword. The battleaxe version shares the same weight as a Glass and Stalhrim Battleaxe, while the greatsword version shares the same weight as a Dragonbone Greatsword.
It is a battleaxe by default, but can be altered into a greatsword at an Alteration Table, and offers no enchantments. However, the weapon does cause fiery explosions when an enemy is killed with a critical hit. These explosions have the potential to harm or even kill the player if they are not wearing fire resistant apparel or have a spell absorption effect active.
Background and Inspiration Edit
The Trident of Power was added in Relics of Hyrule version 6.2.
The trident is comprised almost entirely of base-game assets, namely the handle of a Daedric Battleaxe, two Daedric Daggers, Mehrunes' Razor. Only the red gem is a custom asset.
The Trident of Power references the tridents used by Ganon in such games as A Link to the Past, Four Swords Adventures, and A Link Between Worlds. It is most closely based on the trident's design from Four Swords Adventures.
