Triton is an enemy in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. He is the ruler of the water kingdom.


Triton - 01

Fontana del Tritone in Rome, Italy.

Triton is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively, and is herald for his father. He is usually represented as a merman which has the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish.

Like his father, he carried a trident; however, Triton's special attribute was a twisted conch shell on which he blew a trumpet to calm or raise the waves. Its sound was such a cacophony that when loudly blown, it put the giants to flight, who imagined it to be the roar of a dark wild beast.

The Castlevania enemy is a direct portrayal of the 17th century sculpture, Fontana del Tritone in Rome, by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.


Triton sits on a throne made of coral and seashells, and slowly advances toward the player while the fishes that carry his mount shoot fireballs from their mouths. If given enough time, he will blow on his horn and launch his trident directly toward the hero.

Gaining dominance over his soul grants Soma the Battle God's Power ability, which increases STR by 16, making it the most powerful variant of STR boosting souls in the game.
