Trident is one of the coolest weapons in Minecraft. This exotic-looking weapon was added to the game as part of the Aquatic Update.

Unlike other weapons in Minecraft, the trident is non-craftable. Drowned zombies can spawn with a trident. There is a 6.25 % chance of a drowned spawning with a trident in Java Edition, whereas a 15% chance in Bedrock Edition. Players can get trident by killing the drowned holding trident.

Tridents, obtained as a drop from drowned zombies, have very low durability. Players can restore durability points by enchanting a trident with mending and collecting experience points.
