  • The trident is approximately 7 feet tall, with Aquaman actor Jason Momoa being slated as 6'4".

Behind the scenes

  • In the comics, Aquaman's trident has possessed numerous magical capabilities, effectively serving as a magical conduit to produce a variety of effects.
    • As such, in the New 52 comic storyline Throne of Atlantis, it's stated that only Atlantean royalty can hold the trident due to an enchantment placed upon it.
  • There exists two tridents that Aquaman has used in DC Comics, the Trident of Poseidon and the Trident of Neptune.
