What is a trident in Minecraft

Trident is a unique weapon that is among the rarest items in the game compared to others. One of its unique features is that it can be used as a melee or a ranged weapon, and it is an ideal choice, especially for underground battles. To use it as a ranged weapon, you need to hold the right click and then release it, and after that, it will just be like an arrow. If it collides with a mob, it will crash nearby. If it hits with a block, it will remain there. So you should use it rarely in some particular situation; otherwise, it might break.
