These weapons are based upon the tools of a fisherman. The Trident & Net combination is the mid-range weapon for the [[Gladiator]]. ==Trident== The trident was a three-pronged spear about six feet in length. The individual prongs had barbs which inflicted more damage when the weapon was pulled from the body. The trident tip could also be used to trap opponents' weaponry for counter-attacks. Tridents are often associated with the Greek god of the sea [[wikipedia:Poseidon|Poseidon]] and his Roman equivalent [[wikipedia:Neptune_(mythology)|Neptune]]. Hades used a similar Bident, which had only two points: this most likely influenced the modern depiction of devils using tridents. ==Net== The Net was circular with lead weights around the edge, and was attached to the gladiator's wrist by means of a rope. It was used to entangle opponents limbs or torso, allowing the gladiator to follow up with a strike from the trident. The term "Retiarius" literally means "net man" or "net fighter". ==Specs== *Length: 6 feet *Weight: 4 pounds *Composition: Steel and wood ==Gallery== [[File:Trident_and_net_gladiator.jpg|thumb|left|192px|Retiarius gladiator]] [[Category:Weapons]] [[Category:Ancient Weapons]] [[Category:Spears]] [[Category:Mid Range Weapon]] [[Category:"Edge" Weapons]] [[Category:Edge Weapons]] Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Deadliest Warrior Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://deadliestwarrior.fandom.com/wiki/Trident_%26_Net"
