The trident is a part of a set of The Seven Treasures of Atlantis. Seven mystical relics crafted and used by the former king of the seven seas Atlan. This Trident has no supernatural powers or mystical properties other than being a symbol of Atlantean royalty, giving the user unrestricted right and lordship over the various oceans of the world.

Allowing Arthur to undo The Drift's magitek entrapment's, strengthen himself with the artifact in hand, temporarily fix Mera's breathing problem while in Atlantis. The trident itself could also discharge bolts of arcane energy with devastating effect.
