This article is about a subject that is relevant to the storyline of both the Ninjago TV series and the LEGO Movie franchise. Information may be more directed toward one continuity than the other.

“And they have powerful weapons.”

A trident is a three-pronged spear that is mainly used by the Merlopians.


Prior to the series

During a battle against Wojira, Nyad tried to attack her with a trident, but it broke.[1]

The Tooth of Wojira

Deep in the Endless Sea are two statues holding a trident on the sides of the dormant Wojira.

A Big Splash

When Wu shows a scroll about the Battle of Nine Days to the ninja, it revealed Wojira fighting Nyad, who was wielding a trident.

Five Thousand Fathoms Down

Kalmaar used a trident to shoot at Glutinous. Later, he and the other Merlopians used their tridents to shoot at Nya and Maya in their APS suits.

The Wrath of Kalmaar

Kalmaar used his trident to threaten Nya and Maya if they didn't give the location of the Island of the Keepers. When Gripe comes and startles Kalmaar, he shoots the trident at the top of a pole, letting Nya and Maya to escape.

Long Live the King

After Kalmaar became the new King of Merlopia, he replaced his trident with his father's, and it along with the Maaray Guards' tridents changed from blue to red.

The Turn of the Tide

Kalmaar continued using his father's trident to control Wojira, and later fought Jay with it before facing off against Benthomaar, managing to destroy his weapon, only for the latter to throw the broken piece at the trident to break the trident in half, and freeing Wojira in the process.

Wu used a trident seized by a Merlopian after Jay took his staff to face Kalmaar.


  • Electrical bolts: Tridents can shoot electrical bolts. These bolts can power down vehicles such as the APS suits. An energy bolt from a trident is fatal if shot at a person, as seen with Trimaar. Despite this, Wu, Nya and Jay were shot by the bolts but did not die, meaning that it may require a certain amount of energy to actually kill someone.
    • Control over Wojira: By utilizing the energy in the trident, Kalmaar was able to use the trident to cause pain and take control of Wojira. However this only is with the help of the Wave Amulet, as the user can temporarily control Wojira's actions.[7] However, it has to be constantly stabbed by a weapon's energy and cause pain to Wojira in order to do so. Otherwise, the user would no longer have control of Wojira. Also if the weapon is destroyed or damaged then the weapon is rendered useless.

  • The trident found in Ronin's pawn shop in 71741 Ninjago City Gardens could be a reference to Seabound.
  • Nya's spear resembles a trident; being a pole with a sai on the end.
  • Kalmaar and Trimaar's tridents are the only ones that feature a sai at the bottom of it.
  • In the original spinner pack layout, a golden weapon resembling a larger, more detailed sai can be seen. As it seems the ninja, "Edward", was affiliated with water, it is possible the sai was meant to resemble a trident.[2]
  • From "Long Live the King" to "The Turn of the Tide," the coloring of the trident changed depending on what side that the user is on, as all the Merlopians' tridents were changed to red after Kalmaar became king, while it changed back to blue when they were being used by Wu and P.I.X.A.L..
    • When Kalmaar is eaten by Wojira, the tridents of the Maaray Guards change back to blue.
  • When asked how Kalmaar was able to control Wojira by his trident, Giles Panton replied with a gif that said "magic."[3] However, Tommy Andreasen noted that it was because Kalmaar caused pain to Wojira.[4]
    • A reference to Tommy Andreasen's statement is the fact that Wojira often yells out loud when Kalmaar pricks the wave amulet with his trident. This is supposed to illustrate the pain Kalmaar is causing her.
  • A total of 11 tridents are included in the Ninjago sets, of which 6 are in 71755 Temple of the Endless Sea.
