—Description

Trident of the Oracle (神凪の逆鉾, Kannagi no Sakahoko?) is the traditional weapon of the Oracles' bloodline in Final Fantasy XV. It is a tall steel trident that has a wing ornament at the bottom. It is one of the royal arms, meaning it can be wielded by a Lucian king. It is considered a polearm for gameplay purposes.

StoryEdit

The-Oracle-KGFFXV

A statue of the Old Wall wields a giant version of the Trident of the Oracle.

According to legend, Bahamut descended from the stars and handpicked a maiden from the land of Tenebrae, giving her his trident and the power to speak to the gods and fight the Starscourge. The trident has stayed as the Oracles' heirloom ever since, somewhat similar to the Ring of the Lucii for the kings of Lucis.

Curiously, though the Oracles are known as the royalty of Tenebrae, one of the thirteen statues of the Old Wall in Insomnia is a seemingly female figure who wields a giant version of the Trident of the Oracle. In Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, the statue wields it in the battle against the Diamond Weapons. Nyx Ulric and Glauca end up fighting on her shoulder, but she tosses her trident and warps away.

Leviathan and Luna

Luna approaches Leviathan with the trident in hand.

When Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, the current Oracle, is in Altissia, the trident appears to be in the possession of the Altissian government, who are reluctant to let her summon Leviathan for the damage it would cause the city. Prince Noctis negotiates with the first secretary Camelia Claustra to let Luna proceed with the ritual. Claustra meets Luna at her mansion and lets her use the trident.

Luna asks Leviathan to lend her blessing to Noctis. The sea goddess takes offense at being awoken by a mortal and attacks Luna, who repels the offense with the trident. Leviathan is attacked by Niflheim forces and goes on a rampage across the city. Though fatally stabbed by Ardyn Izunia, Luna uses the trident to summon the souls of the past Lucian kings to empower Noctis, who subdues Leviathan and forges a covenant with her. The Trident of the Oracle joins the array of royal arms Noctis wields at once, and he performs the finishing blow using the trident. Luna passes away after passing on the Ring of the Lucii to Noctis in a dream. When Noctis awakes he no longer has the trident.

Noctis-and-Shiva-FFXV

Noctis receives the Trident of the Oracle.

When Noctis later meets Shiva on the train to Gralea, he receives the Trident of the Oracle from her. It becomes one of his royal arms he can wield during Armiger. Trident of the Oracle is among the weapons Noctis uses to deliver the final assault on Ardyn during their battle at the Citadel.

Final Fantasy XV Royal Arm Trident of the Oracle 神巫逆矛

Trident of the Oracle

When the player attacks with the trident, it will leave a hologram that stays for a few seconds and will damage enemies that touch it. The Scepter of the Pious also gets this trait when it takes the form of the trident. The holograms stack and thus do high damage to stationary targets.

The Trident of the Oracle's basic combo is to stab the enemy and with forward directional input it skips to the powerful combo finisher. Any other directional input has Noctis jump in that direction and begin an aerial combo that consists of two stabs. The second aerial combo is a descending plunging attack that has a high break modifier. Its phase counter is a jumping stab.

Warp-striking with the trident has Noctis warp above the enemy and attack it from above with a plunging attack, similar to the fighting style of Aranea Highwind. The warp-strike is good for dodging and attacking.

Other appearancesEdit

Lunafreya fights a daemonic Noctis in a fiery battleground that resembles depictions of Hell. She wields the Trident of the Oracle, but Noctis takes it from her and seems to use it to kill her before coming to his senses. As he realizes what he has done, he throws away the trident and drops to his knees in anguish.

Lunafreya's Play Arts Kai figure became available in July 2017.

EtymologyEdit

A trident is a three-pronged spear used for spear-fishing, and was also a military weapon. Tridents are featured widely in mythical, historical and modern culture. The major Hindu god, Shiva the Destroyer, and the Greco-Roman sea god Poseidon or Neptune, are classically depicted bearing a trident.

The word "trident" comes from the French trident, which in turn comes from the Latin tridens or tridentis: tri "three" and dentes "teeth.

TriviaEdit

  • Although the trident is said to originate from Bahamut, he is usually associated with swords rather than any other weapon type. In Greek, Roman, and Hindu mythology, the trident is said to have the power of control over the ocean. In Final Fantasy XV, the trident is used to summon forth the sea goddess Leviathan. However, the trident being a royal arm, and it having a wing ornament, indicate an association with Bahamut as well.
