TriDent was a robot built by Team Coolrobots that competed in the final two seasons of BattleBots. It was a silver robot armed with a lifting arm that could rotate 360 degrees. It also had two spike plates on the front for impaling robots. For Season 5.0, TriDent was resprayed dark green. It performed decently in BattleBots, reaching the televised rounds in Season 5.0, but never went further than the round of 32.
TriDent's first ever match in BattleBots was against Jersey Devil. TriDent rammed Jersey Devil like a cannon shell, several times. Jersey Devil tried a defensive spin, but to no avail. TriDent didn't land any solid hits after that, only glancing shots and pushes, but Jersey Devil spent the whole match running away. After this, the time ran out and TriDent won on a 30-15 judge's decision. This win put TriDent to the final preliminary round, where it faced Plowbot.
The bots circled each other, and Trident used its far superior speed to get the position it wanted and ram Plowbot into the wall spikes. Trident basically got its way with Plowbot, ramming and shoving Plowbot, pushing it around, and hitting it into the wall spikes. TriDent never seemed to use its lifting arm, though. At one point TriDent rammed Plowbot hard enough to impale itself into it, and the bots had to be separated. In the end, the time ran out and TriDent won on a 36-9 judge's decision. This win put TriDent to the TV rounds, where it faced Space Monkey. Space Monkey won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and TriDent was eliminated from the tournament.
Because it lost in the round of 64, TriDent couldn't participate the middleweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
TriDent's first match in Season 5.0 was against Ravager. TriDent won on a 34-11 judge's decision and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Problem Child. TriDent won by KO and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced Minnesota Mangler. TriDent won by KO and advanced to the TV rounds again, where it faced Nemesis. TriDent won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and advanced to the round of 32, where it faced T-Minus. T-Minus won on a 33-12 judge's decision and TriDent was eliminated from the tournament again.
For unknown reasons, TriDent didn't participate the middleweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. Even if it did, it wouldn't come back for the middleweight royal rumble due to an incident with Nightmare in the heavyweight consolation rumble which resulted in all the rumbles getting cancelled.
