The Trident of Poseidon is an unbreakable three-pronged leister that serves as an extension of the god's own power. It can be used for base offensive purpose, but can also be used for a variety of mystical effects, such as cleaving a spatial aperture in the middle of the ocean. The trident is capable of controlling any body of water, creating water elementals, speed ships and other water vehicles with water, create fogs and storms of high intensity, summon waves of water to propel him at great speeds, and create earthquakes by increasing water pressure. It can manipulate and conjure water, as well as disperse energy in the form of bolts and forcefields.
In his war waged against the other Atlantis, Aquaman had been blessed by the sea god Poseidon with a slew of new powers and magical equipment to help battle the poisonous hold of the Thule. The Trident has command over the storm and ocean, be it wind & rain and other aquatic effects related to its namesake. Having command over the earth generating quakes, rock formations and other seismic activity. Conjure up ice and cold, teleport vast distances using water as a medium and calling down heavy thunder and lightning to strike enemies.
This new weapon also transforms from a small sword with an enchanted blade and back into three pronged lancet on command. In order to stop the Coven of Thule once and for all, Aquaman was forced to relinquish his enchantments, including the Trident. He would eventually obtain a replacement shortly afterwards as his kingdom expanded, the powers it withholds now remaining relatively the same. Arthur having used it to gore the godlike Kryptonian Rao with relative ease, as well as dispatch an army of fanatical Kryptonians under his command by conjuring a tidal wave sweeping them away.
