Wimbli's Trident is one of many apparently ancient albeit useless relics obtained by the Druuge from the Utwig in exchange for the Ultron. The Utwig, using the Ultron's own power, predicted that the secret of changing and purifying the racial nature of the Druuge was hidden in an Utwig cache of unidentifiable, unusable historical oddments, which also included the Glowing Rod, and gave the Druuge these relics as a charitable act. The Druuge, angry at being cheated of their truly sought prize, the incredibly powerful Precursor bomb the Utwig had found, proceeded to unload as many of these relics on foolish travelers as they could.

Wimbli's Trident appears to be nothing but an ornately carved three-pronged polearm fashioned out of ordinary metal. The name "Wimbli" is carved on the shaft, though the crudeness of the inscription signifies that it may be a later addition by the Druuge to enhance the perceived value of the artifact. Their claims that the Trident grants the power to fire energy blasts or travel between dimensions seem baseless.

Wimbli's Trident is a weapon in a later Toys for Bob game, The Horde.
