"A spear of peerless grace cherished by the Zora Champion Mipha. Although Mipha specialized in healing abilities, her spearmanship was in a class all its own."

Breath of the Wild In-Game Description

The Lightscale Trident is a spear found in Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity resembling the finest Zora architecture. It was used by Mipha until her death, and is later inherited by Link.


Breath of the Wild

The Lightscale Trident has a very fast use time, with a power of 22 and durability of 70. Link obtains this weapon after saving Zora's Domain from the trouble caused by the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. It once belonged to the Zora Champion Mipha, but is gifted to Link by King Dorephan for his efforts. The Trident was first created by Dento as a present to the newborn Zora Princess[1].

If the Lightscale Trident breaks, it can be taken to Dento himself in Zora's Domain to have a replacement made in exchange for a Zora Spear, a Diamond, and five pieces of Flint[2].

According to Part Four of the History of the Zora, channeling her voice through the Lightscale Trident, Mipha purportedly gave post-mortem instructions to the Zora to cease their grief for her loss, a miracle that led them to venerate the Trident as sacred[3]. The Zora henceforth celebrate the Champions Festival in honor of Mipha. The hallowed nature of the Trident hints at why there's copies of it in the form of the Ceremonial Trident.

The Lightscale Trident is Mipha's initial and highest-level weapon, superseding Traveler's Spears and Zora Spears.



  1. "The queen and I were blessed with a daughter as lovely as a jewel. We named our princess...Mipha. To celebrate her birth, the smithy Dento presented Mipha with a gift: a might spear called the Lightscale Trident." — As told by King Dorephan, Breath of the Wild
  2. "Simply bring me a Zora Spear, one Diamond, and five pieces of Flint. Do that and I will make you a new Lightscale Trident whenever you have need." — Dento, Breath of the Wild
  3. "As a way of offering her soul repose, they tried to send the Lightscale Trident drifting down the Zora River. But when they did, the trident began to glow, and Mipha's voice rang loud and clear for all Zora to hear: "The Lightscale Trident and I are one... Abandon your grief and know joy once again. Do not cry...just remember."" — As told by King Dorephan, Breath of the Wild
