** Barbara only used her pistol when the situation calls for it, such as if her target's too far away for her sword or that her aiming skills are needed to shoot off of something.

* '''Downplayed''': Noblewoman Jane carries a rapier for ornamentation. However she is [[LadyOfWar perfectly qualified to use it]] and any [[MuggingTheMonster would-be mugger]] would have more then he bargained for.

* '''Parodied''': Pike doesn't actually use his iconic trident because it's stuck in its holster; some time ago, he tried to force it out, and it broke. He can't get it fixed, so he wears it to scare off enemies and uses a different weapon when pushed.

*** It also might be an identifier of sorts, so that if it does get used too much, Barbara might no longer be able to prove it's her.

* '''Justified''': Barbara doesn't have a great deal of ammo for the gun, and mainly uses it for intimidation.

* '''Deconstructed''': The trident is purely ornamental and not strong enough to use in actual combat. Its prongs break with the first stab.
* '''Reconstructed''': Pike fixes the trident by soldering and reinforcing it, thus making it stronger.

Added DiffLines:

** The weapon isn't meant to be used in actual combat. Pike's trident is actually a ''key'' that was shaped for a famous artifact that happened to be a weapon. It's actually fragile, so Pike hides it when battle starts.
** The weapon was given as a symbol of rank. While it is perfectly useable, Barbara feels that she might tarnish the value of her captain's pistol if she actually fires it.
*** It also might be an identifier of sorts, so that if it does get used too much, Barbara might no longer be able to prove it's her.
