The Living Poseidon Statue is a very powerful and durable unit in Age of Mythology that makes its appearance in the final scenario of the Fall of the Trident campaign.

Overview Edit

The Living Poseidon Statue is an extremely powerful unit, with 20,000 HP, an immense 300 crush (and 100 hack) attack, and very high armor in all categories. It is highly comparable to the Guardian in stats, though it is inferior concerning anything, save for HP, which is identical.

It is highly resistant to god powers, including Zeus' Bolt. Only Arkantos in his demigod form can beat it, as he has an enormous bonus against it.

Fall of the Trident Edit

It appears in the scenario A Place in My Dreams as a must-destroy unit. It has been summoned by Gargarensis, who pleas Poseidon, the scheming major god who intends to free Kronos and rule the world.

Poseidon in return animates the Living Poseidon Statue, which leaves its pedestrial and prepares to fight Arkantos and his forces. In essence, it is the final boss of the campaign.

After struggling to stave off summoned creatures from Tartarus, and Gargarensis' forces, Arkantos eventually is blessed by Zeus himself, turning him into a demigod. (The player receives the unique Blessing of Zeus God Power.)

After the statue is destroyed, its trident falls to Gargarensis' torso, brutally impaling and killing him. Poseidon failed to release his father and rule the cosmos, and in his rage, mostly sinks and destroys the island of Atlantis, save for some parts. Arkantos dies during this cataclysm, however Athena casts a spell and Arkantos ascends into godhood.

Mythology Edit

"Poseidon's wrath incarnate. This statue exists only to destroy those bold enough to directly interfere with the designs of the mighty sea god."

Trivia Edit

  • As the statue is fueled by Poseidon's powers, this technically makes him the second non-Titan god to directly fight on the battlefield, after Osiris. Other Gods who have helped or antagonized the Heroes tend to either appear indirectly (such as Loki) or indirectly assist their efforts via blessings (such as Zeus, Hades, Thor and Isis).
